The University's Welcome Ambassadors help people make a smooth transition into higher education and help students maintain good mental health.

The University of Portsmouth’s Welcome Ambassadors project has been recognised as an example of national good practice at the launch of a new task force, set up by Education Secretary Damian Hinds, to support students to deal with the challenges that starting university can include and to preserve their mental health.

On University Mental Health Day (Thursday 7 March), Mr Hinds announced that the new task force will look at how students moving from sixth-form or college to university can be better supported in their crucial first year, building on the work already underway across the sector to improve support for student mental health.
