It can be tough when trying to organise everything for university, and although you understand that it is a big change in your life, there are lots of things you need to do to mentally prepare for uni and that new chapter.
Let yourself know what things you are scared about university, and why you feel this way. Otherwise they may all appear at once and you won't be able to deal with them
You just be you, gurl.
Because they will be none the wiser when you leave
Cry before, during the journey and when you arrive at university. If you need to - let it all out
It may sound cheesy, but it is the best advice when you look at it in the simplest terms
It can be really tough to deal with, but that doesn't mean that what you're doing is the right thing for you! Let yourself feel sad, call home and then get on with your day
Many students state that they'll get a first in their degree, and this is actually quite tough. Try your best but don't feel like a failure if you get a 2:1
Whether it is your teacher, classmate or dorm mate - you just have to push through it
It will definitely place a positive outlook on the entire thing
Especially during Fresher's week - budget for this effectively
Because it will be a complicated relationship when you get to university
And that's okay
You don't have to party every night to feel like you are 'doing the university thing right'
All new places are daunting to begin with but this is normal
Even if it is in the middle of nowhere
Because those memories will travel with you to university
You'll get through it fine!
