If you’re thinking about travelling after uni, a great way to get a taste for it is studying aboard. It allows you to explore another culture, broaden your outlook on life and adds an interesting dimension to your uni course. Depending on the type of course your doing and your uni, you can either go for a single semester or a full year.
You’ve got three assignments due for around the same time.
Passing your driving test and getting your car is like the ultimate freedom. No more lifts from mum and dad, no more relying on public transport, you got your wheels and your wheels got you!
It can be both exciting and nerve-wracking living with people that you’ve never met before. As with all happy families, be prepared for the enviable conflicts and drama that will occur from time to time.
As a first year uni student, lectures will be completely new to you.
Now that freshers' is over and done with, it’s time to get into a ‘proper’ routine. You’ll probably still be feeling all the repercussions of those late nights, junk food and lack of sleep, so it’s a good idea to flush all the toxins out your system.
What happened? Where did it all go wrong? You had more party to give, dammit…
You're fresh out of uni and about to start your first day in the real working world. All the hours, days and months of job searching, writing tailored CVS and cover letters, preparing for job interviews, have been leading up to this moment.
You did all the prep, you practiced the questions and answers with your mate, you read about the company till you felt like the CEO and you know exactly what you're talking about. But when crunch time wheels round, you find yourself struggling to remember the name of the interviewer, let alone why you're good for the job.
Third year is intense with a capital I. There are constant deadlines, the work is more advanced and you’ve got plenty of revision to do. The important thing to remember is that you WILL survive and get that degree.
