University is a period of any young adult’s life that they greatly look forward to. This opportunity for further education presents itself as a way to find yourself and further define the rest of your life it terms of career and lifestyle expectations. For many people it is the first time they have moved away from home and we relish the freedom this will give us. Often it’s just one massive three year party alongside lectures whilst you’re essentially living out the weird social experiment that is university halls. However, as much as all of this appeals to us, there are plenty of things that are left out when you’re in the process of university. I may only be in my second year but I know that these overlooked details can make or break your university experience. Before you make the biggest investment/decision of your life, maybe have a little look at the things you should be prepared for that not a single UCAS event will mention.
