The Stress-Free Guide to Studying at University
SAGE Study Skills Series
The book is structured around the main stressors that are likely to be encountered as a student, such as the initial adjustment to college life, financial difficulties, and the pressure of examination. Throughout, the emphasis is on achieving well-being, by minimizing the disruption caused by stress and learning from difficult experiences.
Three main strategies are investigated for handling stress:
- Reducing the likelihood of encountering stressful situations
- Learning how to handle stressful situations when they can't be avoided
- Moving on from stressful experiences and achieving positive well-being
This guide will be a great help to any student troubled by the pressures of college. The highly practical strategies provided here will help to ensure that the reader gets the most from their time as a student, without the interference of unnecessary stress.

Very useful for helping students manage the demands of university study.
We are using this book to support our student wellbeing activities and is very much welcomed
too basic for student level
This publication is aimmed at young students at university for the first time; it is not suitable for mature students. The course I teach is for mature students.
It would be helpful to have a survival guide for mature students who maybe balancing a career, a family and running a home with their studies.
A useful text and resource for students who are new to higher education
