If you’re preparing to go to uni, you probably have A LOT of questions. But, what are the questions that really matter? We asked the professionals (you guys on insta who are already at uni) what you wish you knew before you went and here is what you said...
It's hard to adjust but it gets better
What the best student bank account is
Eating pasta every day is a bad idea
£300 is not a lot of money
A bad grade isn’t the end of the world
Take each day as it comes! Don’t worry if you don’t understand, chances are no one got it!
It’s not always as fun as people make out
I wish I knew there is no timeline on my own success
You won’t get along with everyone and that’s ok
Time flies when it comes to writing essays
It’s hard work
Get a printer
That being friends with someone does not mean you will enjoy living with them
Never wear white trainers to a student union bar
How to cook
Flatmates can be idiots
Just talk to them and become friends
Not everyone lives the same as you
How to have a good time and not be uptight
Take modules for you only, not for your friends to think you’re cool or to impress others!
Look at the course content (I had to change courses)
A lot of people take drugs but it doesn’t make you cooler than them
Being lonely is different to being alone- going on coffee dates on your own is ok
Everyone will steal your food
Do not procrastinate
