Well, here we are at the end of September and for those of you who are off to University or College for the first time you should be settled in (hopefully by now) and for those of you returning you should have just headed back refreshed and ready for the next term.
Over the course of September we’ve looked a variety of tips, tools and hacks that can make your student life easier. In case you’ve missed any I thought I’d round them all up here for you so you can bookmark this page for easy reference later.
The one thing you need to remember is that college or university should be an enjoyable and memorable experience. Sure, you’re expected to (and need to) work hard, money is tight and you’ll be on a budget but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy yourselves a little too after all, going to University all adds to your life experience that employers are so fond of.
Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed the Back To Uni series and have found some useful information that will help you in your life as a student.
