Hi, I’m Nikkii, I study Sports Coaching at Worcester and here’s my view on moving to university. As a student at the University of Worcester, I can say I’ve experienced the best of both worlds now – living at home and in halls.
So, it’s time to decide whether university is for you and you have hundreds of questions racing through your mind; ‘how will I afford it?’, ‘what if I don’t like my flat mates?’, ‘how will I fit everything in?’, ‘How will I have time?’…
The average University of Worcester student, teachers and nurses aside, spends between 8 and 16 hours in lectures a week.
It is not difficult to be happy at University. Seriously, it’s not. But, you know, the world’s not all sunshine and rainbows, and occasionally times get tough at University just like they do everywhere else.
As well as studying hard for your degree, having a social life is a very important part of University life and over my three years of being a student, I can definitely vouch for that.
Everyone can remember a time when popularity was a big deal. If you didn’t experience it at school, it’s more than likely that you will have seen it in a film or two.
Throughout University, it goes without saying that you will be VERY busy.
Despite the jokes most people of a slightly older generation make about living the ‘easy life’ as a student, realistically, it is a really busy time for students.
It can be easy to forget that there is a whole other world out there whilst you live at University. You live in this little bubble of your friends, your social life, your workload, and the odd bit of work and lectures as well!
