My top tip and top picks for starting Uni!

Hi guys


I just wanted to write a little blog post for anyone starting College or University in the next couple of weeks, or if you've already completed a year or two and are heading back to finish off! 

So if you're a fresher this year, you'll be super excited about possibly moving out of home as well as meeting loads of new people and making new friends for life! I studied for my degree at Loughry College which was quite close to home for me so I travelled during my 4 years there. But after graduating, I moved to Glasgow to study a masters in Human Nutrition at The University of Glasgow, so it was a totally new experience for me and I loved it! So my top tip would be, work hard and play hard; enjoy all the experiences uni life has to offer, but remember to work hard because at the end of the day that is why you're there! 


Here's my top picks of what you will need to get organised and get through your first year of uni! 


Our academic planners are an absolute must have for anyone starting uni this year. They run from August 2019-December 2020 so means you won't have to think about getting a new one too soon after your purchase!
