Universities and colleges can add customised local pages to our free-to-download student-facing apps to signpost local services and support in one instantly accessible location.
Why have a customised page on our student-facing apps?
Students suffer and many support services are overwhelmed because of misinformation and a lack of health knowledge. If you work in University Student Support, the NHS or any other organisation with a duty of care and find it hard to get trusted information out to your communities, we can help.
Students increasingly use their mobile phones to access health information.
When content is scattered over different websites, key information about available support can sometimes be hard to find.
As a result, students may not seek the help they need - or access overwhelmed university or NHS support services when more suitable alternatives would have been available to them.
How does a customised page benefit your students?
With customised pages, you can enable your students to find key information easily in a single location, even when offline:
- Signpost local services and support - raise awareness of where students can get help, especially in a crisis
- Link directly to relevant pages on your website and make them easy to find
- Add your institutional branding - and increase students' feeling of belonging
