Increase in students seeking counselling
The number of students seeking counselling support at Glasgow University has more than doubled in the last four years, the largest increase seen within the UK.
There was an average increase of a third in demand for counselling at universities throughout the UK in the last four years, according to a study by Help me Investigate. Glasgow University has seen the number of students registered with CAPS rise from 512 students in 2008-9 to 1251 in 2012-13. Glasgow University has the longest waiting list of the universities in the UK, with 239 people on it.
This increase has raised concerns that the University’s provision of the Counselling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is not sufficient for the demand of students.
