Areas of the AllWell? student survey as support for students

The AllWell? student survey measures aspects of student's study ability and experience of study wellbeing. The student's study ability and study experience are thought to be constructed from four different areas and their interaction: Student's personal resources, study skills, the study environment provided by the university, and teaching and counselling.

Below, the different areas of the AllWell? student survey are presented in more detail, and it is described how the student can develop different aspects of study ability, along with links to additional materials.
