Starting university can be fun, exciting and amazing, but it can also be completely terrifying and as I found out, no amount of googling “what will Uni be like” will put a stop to that.
Excitement, happiness, satisfaction, joy are just a few words that can describe the feeling you get when you find out you were accepted into the university you wanted to study at.
It’s something you will have to do soon if you are joining us in September! It’s the dreading packing up for university.
Uni is a big place, and it can seem even more daunting. But don’t panic – you’re not alone! Going to uni does mean you have to be more independent, but being independent doesn’t mean you’re on your own.
University, whether you’re studying part-time or full-time can be a huge strain on your life, but I believe in making the most of your time as a student, and ensuring that you have had the best University experience when you eventually leave Higher Education.
Before you start university, you will have people throwing advice at you about how to handle student life. The advice comes from all sorts of people; parents, older siblings, cousins and friends.The problem is not all advice is good.
Few weeks into starting uni and strange things started happening to me – I began noticing large creases all over my clothes, which didn’t smell as good when taken out of the washing machine as in past, and I often found myself more exhausted than ever at the end of the day, right after putting that last freshly-clean plate into the tray.
Starting afresh at University doesn’t need to involve a drastic change, and by no means am I going to suggest changing your hair colour or buying a completely new wardrobe.
