University life presents an exciting and rewarding time for students, however it also presents a number of challenges such as financial, academic and health pressures.
Student Minds, a charity dedicated to improving student mental health, highlights this very point, reporting that university students are particularly vulnerable to mental illness yet this very group of people face difficulties in accessing the support they need to overcome such challenges.
Student Shield compliments your existing wellness programs by providing your students with instant access to mental and physical support they need. Medical professionals are available 24/7 to ensure your students can access the physical and mental care they need to lead a fulfilling student life.
Student wellbeing is becoming an increasingly important factor for students and their parents in their university selection process. Student Shield aims to help you to attract and protect new students by offering an exclusive, all embracing health and wellbeing alternative.
The transition from academic to professional presents an exciting opportunity for students to pursue a rewarding career in their chosen field. However, with a heightened competition within the workplace there is increasing pressure on students to secure and retain employment. Balancing work life with a social life, and the financial pressures of independent living can also take their strain on post graduates as they adjust to life outside of academia.
Student Shield not only provides the support your students and alumni need when they need it the most, but aims to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle, so they can be fit to take on the challenges they face. In addition to the suite of health and wellbeing services, Student Shield provides access to an extensive lifestyle discount website, offering discounts from over a hundred well known brands. Exclusive to students and alumni, Student Shield enables you to continue to support your students once they have graduated from university.
