Health and Wellbeing

Health and Wellbeing

In order to ensure the health of its students, the International University of Rabat offers medical services accessible to all UIR students. These services are designed for prevention purposes and to promote student health.

Psychological counseling service

Aware that being a student can be a potential source of pressure, stress and even great fatigue, UIR has set up a student listening and counseling service, led by a multidisciplinary team of counseling professionals.

The purpose of the UIR Student Listening and Counseling Unit is to welcome, listen to and provide counseling to UIR students who are going through individual or personal circumstances that induce stress, pressure or even anxiety, whilst ensuring absolute confidentiality.

The objective of the listening service is to provide a safe place where UIR students can come and talk about the challenges they encounter during their academic career and try to find solutions.

The listening service also aims to contribute to students’ growth, development, fulfilment and better psychological and social well-being. It helps students to mobilize or acquire the attitudes and skills most useful for achieving their academic and personal goals, to develop their potential and thus become more autonomous.  

The mission of the listening service consists in offering the company personalized support, empathetic listening, advice and guidance through a series of individual or group interviews in order to enable students to find solutions to the problems that hinder their success or development within the university. It helps students in their relations with their environment, to communicate differently, to see themselves in a different light and to rebuild their potential.

Appointments can be made directly by calling the following telephone numbers: 06 69 67 68 72 or le 06 93 97 08 11
