Starting University

Scallan, Melissa


Packed full of helpful advice, this book includes actions students can – and should – take throughout the year prior to starting university, including how to apply for university and the key dates concerning the university admission process, applying for student finance and a student bank account, and applying for student accommodation. It explains how much money they’re likely to have, where it comes from, where it goes and – crucially – how to get more of it. It also shows how to budget and what happens when it comes to paying off their loans. It includes what to expect when they start university and how to settle in: from student accommodation and Freshers’ Week to making friends and study skills. And, if they’re living away from home, there’s helpful advice on living without their parents e.g. how to do laundry, how to cook five easy meals, and how to shop savvy.
