Many young adults are now looking forwards to going onto University representing a momentous occasion in their lives, often coupled with leaving home and signifying their first real taste of independence.
The internet will play an integral part in this transition, both in terms of socialising and learning, however some will face online issues such as cyberbullying and trolling, protecting their reputation and their privacy online. Very often, these situations are compounded as the support systems they have relied upon in school are not as readily available to them anymore.
Many Universities have recognised this and raised these issues with us, prompting us to create some brand new fact sheets that Universities can adopt and share with their student communities. These are designed to provide some useful tips and links and above all provide some food for thought for students to consider their online behaviour and its consequences.
You can use these as downloadable files for your website – we only ask that you credit us as the authors. If you would like to print these to distribute them to your students or any further information, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
