It’s an unfortunate fact that every single one of us will experience the loss of someone we love in our lifetime.
Losing someone dear is a tragic experience no matter what your age or stage of life you are at. However, dealing with loss as a young person can be a real struggle, especially when balancing this with university life and studies.
As many young people have little exposure to bereavement, coming to terms with loss can be a difficult challenge as a student.
University is meant to be a time for self-discovery and growing, but the process of coming to terms with grief can often be the biggest test of all.
I took the time to speak to some fellow university students, who have experienced loss, to find out how they have dealt with the challenges of grief while completing their studies.
