Student Memberships

Moving into higher education can be very exciting! You are potentially leaving home and gaining a lot more freedom. You’ll be entering a new world where you’ll have the opportunity to make new friends, try new things, join amazing societies and develop a sense of independence.

At the same time, all of these changes can be fairly daunting. It’s completely normal to have some apprehension about these sudden changes which are happening in your life. It’s completely reasonable also to experience some anxiety in response to these changes.

Anxiety is completely natural emotion. However, when anxiety starts to impact on your day-to-day life, it can become debilitating and difficult to manage. Research from the National Union of Students (NUS) shows that 20% of students experience mental health difficulties while at university.

Anxiety UK has developed a unique Student Support Package to help support you through the first few months at university or college and to help you manage any feelings of apprehension and anxiety that you might be having. We have also created a specialised Student Guide, which will also help you to recognise symptoms of anxiety and enable you to identify when anxiety might be beginning to impact negatively on your ability to function on a day to day basis.

We have created a student-centred Membership package which will provide tailored support to anyone at university or college, with signposts to support they can access throughout the year.

Our offer for Students includes:

  • Student Membership Package; available at £25 per annum with NUS/Student Card* – a £5 saving off our usual Membership price!
  • The Student Membership Package includes:
    • Access to Headspace Mindfulness App (worth approx. £60), more details here
    • Free downloadable copy of Anxiety UK’S Student Guide to Anxiety
    • Reduced cost therapy with an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist
      Access to specialist email and helpline support
    • Subscription to quarterly Anxious Times magazine
    • Access to specialist helpline support, e.g. medication helpline
    • Worth a total value of more than £75 annually

*When applying for a Student Membership, we will need to see a copy of your NUS/Student Card. This can be emailed through to our Membership department so we can apply the discount.

The above offer is applicable only to full time students.
