What You Need to Do Before You Get to University

Whether you got a university place through accepting offers or Clearing, the summer is drawing to an end with the new journey of your education right around the corner. Here is what you need to do before you get to university.

It can be difficult to remember everything you need to get sorted for when your first term begins, but, your last few weeks at home is a great opportunity to put it all in perspective and to get cracking! Get prepared by knowing what you need to get done before you get to university.

Don’t worry though, we’ve got you covered in other areas before school too. We have a great section on GCSEs and we also have a great selection of articles to help you out with A-Levels too. If you’re looking to start your UCAS application in that time too, then, we’ve got an article on filling out your UCAS application on the UCAS website to help you out as well.
