my top tips for freshers

1. learn some basic cooking skillsi've covered this in my 'cooking at uni' (on the way soon) post but please god just do it.  a student budget cannot accommodate you eating ready meals and take-away pizzas every night! (and even if you can you're better off saving it for more interesting things!)

2. get involved in something. i made some of my best friends through clubs and societies. these are the elements of my uni life that have made my uni experience! i've loved getting involved in the volunteering and the sports teams. it really is all about throwing yourself in and getting involved in a new activity or an old favourite!

3. register with a gp asap. you will be glad you did when you feel so ill you can hardly pull yourself out of bed but can't go see a dr. filling in the forms can take a bit of time so have your vaccination history and you nhs number handy. if you get it done straight away it's one less thing to think about!

4. bring biscuits. biscuits and tea were my tools for luring my flatmates out of their bedrooms on the first day. no one can say no to a nice biscuit and it's a homely touch. also great for grabbing in the first few days when you're in a hurry!

5. wedge your door open. its so much more welcoming. people will feel like they can come and say hi and introduce themselves. i also found that this sets you up for the rest of the year. people soon realised that when my door was open people were welcome to pop, but when it was closed i was busy and didn't want to be disturbed. i got so much more work done this way.

6. go to the library. i found that during the exam period i couldn't get any work done in my flat. it is so easy to get distracted! so instead i would head over to the library or the computer building. once you're there it seems almost too much of an effort to walk home, forcing you to work!

7. don't sweat it. at most uni's your first year doesn't even count so missing the odd lecture isn't a big deal. make an effort but enjoy yourself. settle in, get to know your surroundings and throw yourself in. you'll get less time to do so as the years go on!

have you got any tips form your time in uni?
