9 People You Will Meet at University

You’ve just touched down in your new uni village (yes we mean village! As you’ll soon understand that campus is like a little town), and you are unbelievably keen for freshers’ week, good on ya! While everyone’s experience is completely different, we can almost guarantee there will be a few certainties, there are always a few architectural characters that you meet at university, and we’ve got a great selection of memes, to sum up, the nine types of people you will meet at university.

Don’t worry though, we’ve got plenty of useful tips to help you out with any problems that you have at university. We have a great University Advice section for you, which has all sorts of articles, with everything from Student Finance, all the way through to dealing with sexual harassment at university, bullying at university and information on specific qualifications at university, such as an International Baccalaureate.

If you’re still looking for some help with finding a university, we also have a great interactive university map as well as a great compare function for universities as well. Maybe you’re looking for some student discounts? Well, we’ve got you covered there too, we have a great section on Student Discounts, which has everything from Spotify Student Discounts, through to a Zara student discount and even a Currys student discount. Everything you need is right here on University Compare.

If you’re struggling with your personal statement, then we’ve got you covered there too! Not only do we have an awesome Personal Statement Editor, we also have a great selection of Personal Statement examples, that have been submitted by University Compare users, so you can have a great look at the types of personal statements that you need. We’re also ahead of the curve on mobile too! We have a great Personal Statement Editor App, which is available on the App Store right now, which allows you to write your personal statement on-the-go and have some great help from some of our examples that we’ve inserted too!

Anyway, here are the nine people you will meet at university.
