"I’m Lucy, and as soon as I graduated I realised how much I’d learnt since freshers’ week. Not just academic stuff, but how to avoid getting ripped off whilst renting a flat, staying on top of your mental health amidst heavy work deadlines, cheap and healthy ways to cook, and how to get a First without trying…too hard. I’ve grilled tutors, current uni students and graduates who’ve only just taken off their mortarboards for their top tips to help you have the time of your life. Have an incredible time!" Lucy
"A Guide to Uni Life is a brilliant read, a must-have for all students heading off to university - and very useful for parents left behind too. It really helped my child feel ready for fresher life, from what to pack to funding and study advice, and answered a lot of my questions as a dad too."
