All new students joining Teesside University this autumn will be offered a 'health MOT' throughout their higher education career.
All undergraduate students will be able to sign up to the programme, which will monitor their diet, exercise and lifestyle so that they can be made aware of any potential health issues.
All data gathered by School of Science & Engineering's BSc (Hons) Food and Nutrition students, who are running the scheme, will be fed back to each individual with recommendations on how to stay healthy, both physically and mentally.
Dr Laura Brown, Senior Lecturer in Nutrition, Food and Health Sciences, said: "The Health MOT is a free, bespoke service tailored towards the needs of students to offer individual guidance on diet, alcohol, sleep and exercise patterns.
