Reports highlight changing use of student welfare services during the pandemic

New reports from the University’s welfare services reveal insights into the experiences of students using Oxford’s Counselling, Disability Advisory and Sexual Harassment and Violence Support services during the COVID-19 pandemic. Annual statistics from the 2020/21 academic year reveal an increase in demand for counselling, with the Service diversifying to include counsellors of colour. Students registered with the Disability Advisory Service increased to above the national average, with mental health and specific learning difficulties as the main groups receiving support. Demand for the Sexual Harassment and Violence Support Service also increased, as did relevant training across the collegiate university.
