It's getting to the pointy end of the semester and the thought of exams might be playing on your mind (if it isn't yet, it probably is now. Sorry)... but stress less, because Health and Wellbeing Week is around the corner! TUMSS have teamed up with some great sponsors to ensure your road to swotvac is better than if health and wellbeing week didn't happen. We forgot to mention the best part - it's all free*!
