Going to university for the first time can feel a little overwhelming, but is also a great opportunity to take those first steps into the world and do new things and have new experiences – here are some of the things to think about before going off to your first year at uni…
Sort your Accommodation – Where you will live whilst you are at university is something worth spending some time looking into as places can vary and it depends on what you want from your accommodation. Some people like the hustle and bustle of halls whereas others prefer a house share, or something like an apartment – for example Students click here for Cheltenham Student Accommodation that could be of interest to you.
Look out for discounts – Being a student means living on a tight budget, but there are loads of discounts, deals and special offers available to you that will make your money go a lot further, so have a look out for these. During freshers week it is a great time to find out more about this, so make sure you keep an eye out for those things that you can make the most of!
Find New Opportunities – Something else that you will find during freshers week is the opportunity to get involved in new clubs, activities or organisations. Have a look as there is a lot on offer at university, so if there is something that you have a strong interest in or have always fancied trying, now is the perfect time to get involved.
