Visit Your University Options
Visiting your uni options may sounds stupid but it’s so so helpful, after all if you accept you’ll want to know where you’re going to be living and studying for the next few years of your life. Visiting your choice will help you get a better understanding of where things are on campus and other things like where the best places are for you to live. If you’re not able to visit all of your university options try to visit your first and second choices.
Sort Out Your Finance and Accommodation
It’s never too early to begin thinking about your finance and especially your accommodation. So many other people will be applying for both of these things so it’s best to get in early and get started, avoiding the last minute rush. Most university accommodation applications are open now and finance usually opens around the beginning of March. Check out the Student Finance England Twitter @SF_England to keep updated with exact dates.
Explore Social Media Groups
Social media is such a good place to find course and flat mates. The likes of Facebook have so many groups already for various things including student housing, events and general advice. I’m already in a few and it’s helping me but also getting me more excited to start in September.
This goes without saying that before you know it September will come around and university will be here! Although this is a stressful time for a lot of people what with exams and results, try not to let them get to you too much. Enjoy your time now and get ready for the hard work to begin!
