things I’d tell my university self

Hindsight is an excellent thing isn’t it?

I loved my experience at university, but there’s definitely a few things I’d change.

Hopefully some of this advice might help others starting out at uni.

  • You WILL make good friends, I promise. It’ll take time and effort, but it WILL happen.
  • Take better, more comprehensive notes. It will make the world of difference when it comes to revising for end of year exams; saving a huge amount of time and an inordinate amount of stress.
  • Take advantage of every opportunity. University comes with endless opportunities and although I definitely took many of them, it wouldn’t have hurt to have taken more. You don’t necessarily get these kind of opportunities on a plate once you leave. 
  • Budget wisely. Budgeting sounds rather boring and tedious, but it’s 100% worth doing to make the most of your student loan and to not waste it on barely worn clothing and deliveroos!
  • Make the most of your free time. Time is precious and I reckon university is the one time where you actually have plenty of free time to play with.

    Aww this is great advice!! I laughed at the one with the ‘don’t know what’s going on here’ because ours recently have been games of tic-tac-toe in boring lectures and you’re right, i hate it when it gets to exams and I’m confused !

    I’d definitely tell myself to be more organised – to start revising and writing essays well in advance, instead of leaving it to the last minute. I’m trying to better at being on top of things now I’m going to university second time around!

      100%, also the sense of achievement you get from being organised is the best x

    I’ve never been to university because I was always so overwhelmed by the idea of it – so if I do ever decide to go, I’ll keep all these in mind 🙂
    I’m so glad you loved your university experience!
    Great post 🧡

      I loved uni but it’s definitely not for everyone and definitely not a required life experience xx
