So it's Friday the 15th August and that means yesterday was A Level Results Day. For a lot of people that will have meant a very exciting, stressful, upsetting or nerve wracking day waiting on results or phoning unis hoping to get a place through clearing. So congratulations on making it through your A Levels and getting in to uni. Hopefully everyone has either got their place at the uni they hoped for, or has found another option through clearing and you're now ready to start preparing for your university experience!
Im currently going in to my third and final year of uni and I thought I'd use my experience to offer up some advice to those just about to start their exciting university lives. So I've created 'A Guide To Starting Uni' and for the next 8 weeks I'll be posting advice and tips on all the different aspects of starting uni!
Obviously I am no expert and I can only use my own knowledge and experiences, everyone has an individual experience of university life, but a lot of people starting uni have similar feelings or questions and may experience similar things which I'll hopefully be able to help with through this series.
I'll be covering the before you move in areas such as planning, packing and making sure you've done everything you can to be as prepared as possible. I'll also make sure to prepare you guys for actually moving in and starting uni, from Freshers Week to starting your course, homesickness and how to make the most of your first year at uni.
If you've got anything you'd really like to me to cover in a post, please leave me a comment, or if you've got any questions about anything to do with university, student life or anything else feel free to message me on twitter or send me a email.
