Hello! If you didn't already know, I am off to University very very soon and I am very excited (also very proud of myself for going through with it) and I have written up a few things that I am going to be taking with me to survive my first term there.. And if you've found out that you're going to University in the next few months (a HUGE well done by the way!) then this might help you along the way (if you're anything like me then you have to be prepared!) Boohoo have also designed their very own Student Hub where all-things-freshers are discussed which you can check out here! This post is kindly in collaboration with Boohoo but as always all opinions are my own, thank you!

1. Starting a conversation with everyone you can will make such a difference to that persons day! You'll probably find that person wants to talk to you, just as much as you want to talk to them. Meet and talk to as many people as you can because everyone will be in the same boat and everyone wants to be making friends. It's a strange environment for people who have moved away to study and they don't know anyone, so having a conversation with them can put them at so much ease.

2. Say yes to everything - what I mean by this is there's going to be lots of different clubs and societies and these are the perfect ways to get to know new people and learn new skills. University is a great place to get involved with things that normally you wouldn't get involved with - grab them with both hands. I've done a little research of different things and by the looks of it, there's a club for absolutely everything.

3. I plan to start all my work when it's set and I am quite adamant to stick to this and put my work first. I don't want to be that person that is constantly unorganised and rushing to get work completed and I guarantee you will enjoy it loads more if you're organised! Also, being organised is key for University such as things like packing your bag the night before, so you know you've got the right things for the things you're going to be doing that specific day and then even if you hit that snooze button a few more times than you really should have then at least that's one less thing you've got to do!

4. This brings me on to my next point, designate a day to sort your stuff out! This includes books, folders and notebooks because from time to time, we all just throw things in anywhere and eventually if we keep doing that then we're not gonna know where anything is when we need it and the thought of that stresses me out so much.

5. Budgeting, yay! Yes we all get money for 'free' and that's fab but we've gotta live off it, especially if you've moved away. My biggest tip is to divide your money up so you have an equal amount each month to live off because it's gonna be the worst thing ever when you have nothing to eat and you can't go out because you've blew all your money.
