This year, not only am I working as an ambassador for my university, but I also signed up to be a college parent, which means helping to mentor a few first years in the same college I’m in. One of the questions I’ve gotten a lot of over the last few months is around gap years and honestly I can understand why. These are not normal times, and for many the idea of starting university during a pandemic isn’t awesome, so a lot of people are considering gap years. So today, because I was serious about wanting to do lots of university-advice related posts, I thought I’d chat about why I took a gap year, and how it connected and impacted my experience going back to university so I hope you find this post helpful!

Sooooo… here are my 12 tips for surviving your Fresher’s week at university! I hope you enjoy it and find it helpful!

Hey everyone! So I’m starting university next week Monday and moving-in-day is looming and let’s just say I’m more than a little nervous about it all. I don’t think the transition course I did about prepping us for uni life helped.
