Facebook post by University for the Creative Arts - UCA

UCA BA (Hons) Fine Art student Katie Karcheski is open about living with anxiety and how it can affect her studies. But with the support of UCA, she’s discovering more about herself and her art. Katie, who is a part-time Fine Art student, based in Farnham, has become a member of UCA’s Buddy Scheme, supporting newcomers to the university as they settle in. Katie said "I decided to take part in the buddy scheme as I knew I would be able to help people who – like me – may feel overwhelmed at the beginning of uni. It’s a massive adjustment and having to learn to cope with the many pressures of university, along with your own health problems, can be extremely difficult. So being able to be there for others was something I certainly wanted to take part in!" We spoke to her about her own experience and how she’s now assisting others to get the best from their own time at UCA.
