Common Student Concerns when Heading to University for the First Time

If you are heading off to university for the first time this year you will probably have a lot of worries and concerns. It has been a strange eighteen months and student life hasn’t been what it was before covid, but as we gradually ease out of lockdown and with the vaccine rollout still going well, hopefully the new term will be a better one for students and a return to more of a normal student life.

Of course, as well as covid, there are the normal worries of heading to university for the first time – for many, this is the first time living away from home and although it is exciting, it can also feel quite daunting!

Once you have found accommodation for your first year there, such as this student accommodation Cheltenham you can do some things to make it more homely. Photos and pictures make a place your own, and you can also make a place feel cosy with things like comfy cushions and string lights.

Finances are something else that are a worry for most students. Many students find it better to get a job during the first year as this is not only a great way to improve your finances, but it also helps to meet people, make friends and get to know the local area better, as well as giving you valuable work experience to put on your CV.
