Over the three years of your life at university, there will be a lot of social events you’ll be invited to. Whether it’s Freshers’ week, Halloween, a charity event, a house party or a night out with friends – fancy dress will definitely be a fun part of your university experience.
So the hard work is done. You’ve spent what feels like forever writing your personal statement, you’ve got your reference and now it all rests on the shoulders of your chosen universities.
Living away from home is part of the university experience, but how do you know which accommodation is going to suit you?
In all honesty, when I was applying for University, not once did I consider what bursaries and scholarships would be available to me. I didn’t really know what they were all about and I automatically thought I wouldn’t be eligible, which turned out to be so very far from the truth.
I’ve been in Worcester for a couple of years now so it’s safe to say that I’ve gone for a fair few meals out, whether it’s been with my current housemates, first year flatmates, my boyfriend or my family when they’ve come to visit.
I’m very proud to say that during my time at Worcester I have done a lot as a Drama student and as an Ambassador. I co-run weekly drama workshops at The Hive, I assist in drama open events, I’ve assisted with youth theatre and the National Theatre Connections project and I’m also employed as an actor!
On Sunday the 23rd of February I went along to Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair held at Worcester Guildhall after seeing loads of flyers and invites on Facebook. If you’ve read my post Dedicated Follower of Fashion, you’ll know that vintage/second-hand clothes are right up my street and so I’d had it planned for a while that I’d be going.
So you’re at sixth form and you’re applying for uni and you’re excited and everything is going swimmingly – you can almost taste the freedom! And then you fall in love. What happens next?
