Hi Grad Groups,
We want to let you know that the GSA Grad Groups Team is here to support you during the COVID-19 crisis. If you or one of your members would like to discuss anything in relation to how the current situation may be affecting your group, or chat about any questions or ideas you may have, please get in touch through phone or email.
As a starting point for thinking about how to adapt your group during this time, we have put together this little guide. In it you will find:
- Advice on administration and the general running of your group.
- Great ideas to get you thinking creatively about how your group can remain engaged whilst studying from home.
- A very important note about wellbeing, and a few suggestions on how to take care of yourself and each other in the face of COVID-19.
- A list of where to find extra information you may require on COVID-19.
There is also a COVID19 FAQ page for Grad Groups up and running on our website which you may find helpful.
It is so very important to support one another during this time; again, please contact us with any queries or concerns you may have – we will do our absolute best to assist in any way we can. We are available 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday.
We look forward to hearing from you and are excited to chat about creative ways to remain engaged, active and in touch through these challenging few months.
Take care and hang in there!
Subah and Clare
Grad Groups Team
Keeping Your Community Together
Grad groups are all about spending time together. Here are some ideas and advice on how your group can catch up for creative projects, study and socialise whilst also keeping your distance!
Looking after yourself
We understand that there is a lot of information out there about how to make the most of time. So we consolidate some broader suggestions around your physical and mental wellbeing. Here you can find ideas of things you can do, meditations and exercise, things you can read and listen to and come added bonus extras.
Group Administration and Leadership
The administration and governance of your Grad Group can become complicated without being able to convene together, face-to-face, as a community. But take heart! Here you can find tools and tips to ease these difficulties.
Resources for Staying Informed
Some useful links in order to stay informed about news and updates, transport and public utilities information, support for students and advice if you are experiencing hardships.
