Sexual Health & Relationships


Attitudes to sex can vary and students from other countries may notice some differences. Choices about sex should be individual and personal to you. You are entirely free to live according to your own standards and should not feel pressured to adopt those of other students. Using condoms every time you have sex can help reduce the risk of contracting a Sexually Transmitted Infection and can prevent unplanned pregnancy.

Termination (abortion) in this country is not considered to be an acceptable form of contraception.

Whether you chose to engage in sexual activity or not, it is important for you to know the facts which can help you make choices. The links on this site can give you information on safe sex and relationship issues.

Knowing the facts can help you make informed choices which may contribute to your wellbeing and achieving your full potential.
