Adapting to university life

Adapting to life at university can be challenging. It means learning to work independently, usually with much less structure than you may be used to and for many students it means living away from home for the first time. 

Time management

Time management is not just about getting to lectures on time, doing your reading and handing asignments in on time. Effectively managing all aspects of your life (from doing your washing and cooking nutritious meals, to making sure you have time to relax and spend time with friends), will help you to cope with your new life.
