UCAS Extra is something that not many people have heard of, but can be an absolute lifesaver for a number of students! It allows you to add more choices onto your UCAS application, however, not everyone is eligible for this.
First of all, let me apologise for the length of the title, but there was no other way around it than just to put all of that within. Second of all, lets get down to what this post is really about…
Student life can get very busy sometimes, especially if you have a part-time job alongside lectures and assignments. And it’s so easy to fall into the trap of procrastination until you end up feeling like you’re getting snowed under, both figuratively and literally.
When it came to choosing a university, it went quickly from being extremely stressful, to finding the perfect course for me at Worcester. I am studying Biology, but this wasn’t always the path I was heading down…
Living alone for the first time? University life brings a new amount of responsibility. Students suddenly have to manage more aspects of their lives but fortunately, the digital age makes it simple and straightforward.
Social outings to bars and clubs can often be considered a big part of student life, but if you’ve never been before then it’s nice to get a good idea of what it will be like!
Make the most of student life
Even if I’m not a “typical” student like everyone else, I can still give some good advice on what to do and not to do as a student.
I moved to live in the UK with my family, so like most students I reside far from home, but I don’t have to deal with all the financial issues, bills, etc. which has its own advantages and disadvantages. However, just like every person that goes to study at university, I had to settle in, socialise and get comfortable in the new environment.
The atmosphere, all the lecturers and staff at the University of Worcester were more than welcoming but coming from overseas to a country where everything is new and having to speak different language, you feel like a baby taking his first steps… at least I felt like one. To be honest, even with the support of my family, it was still tough to start my life all over again.
