University students are often well-positioned to notice changes in a peer’s behaviour that might indicate they’re going through a tough time. The ‘Testing Times’ campaign encourages them to trust their gut instinct when they notice these changes and prioritise checking in with the student they’re concerned about, especially around exam time.
The campaign shows that supporting someone around exam time is important and need not be difficult or time consuming. Making a call, sharing a meal or lending an ear can make all the difference.
‘Testing Times’ was spearheaded by four universities: Griffith University, University of Canberra, University of New South Wales and Western Sydney University.
