Starting university is filled with so many emotions and it’s certainly a daunting yet exciting experience. There are so many firsts and ‘what ifs’ but so many amazing opportunities too.
 What were some things you wish you’d known before starting university? 

Natalie (Student): “When I started university, I got so caught up with my new course, going out, and socialising with my new friends that I didn’t really make the most of the opportunities and societies that university has to offer! It was only in my third and fourth years that I ended up joining the societies that I really enjoyed, and if I could do it all again I would try something I’d never done before.”
Luke (Student): “Finding your feet and meeting friends will take time, so don’t force it. You will find your group. Be open and receptive to new experiences as daunting as they may seem. And don’t be afraid to reach out for help if you feel lonely or are struggling it is perfectly normal after such a big change!”
