Students help relieve exam stress by petting dogs
STUDENTS in the middle of their university exams are fighting stress by playing with puppies.
Ulster University Students Union is holding puppy petting sessions to let young people experience the therapeutic properties of spending time with dogs.
Affectionate small dogs from Causeway Coast Dog Rescue visited the Coleraine campus and will be at Magee in Derry next week.
Later this week, Northern Ireland Assistance Dogs will be at Jordanstown with its pups Inca, Otis and Blue.
The idea is to offer students a calm environment to help them cope with pressure and stress over the exam period.
