Staff and students on our MSc Health Psychology combined learning with relaxation towards the end of their first term, as they enjoyed a couple of days together at Village Urban Spa. The break formed part of our Stress Health and Illness module and included learning and support sessions linked to upcoming coursework, as well as an opportunity to learn about mindfulness and meditation.
Student feedback was extremely positive:
“We all loved it! It was really nice to get away with people from the course and get to know everyone better”.
“The Spa break was a fun way of demonstrating how to ‘de-stress,’ as part of the Stress module. It was a great way of getting to know each other more and spend time with each other outside of uni!”
We hope to offer another spa day for the 2015/16 academic year (most likely in December), so look out for further details when you come to induction day.
