Preparing for life at University
Transition to University
(but we are sure that there will be more).
- How might you feel when you are in bigger groups at University and if this seems daunting is there anything you can do to help yourself?
- What is the best way to organise yourself at University when most of your study will be independent and in your own time?
- Do you think your lecture attendance will matter very much?
- What do you think it is like to live away from home with a new group of people?
- How good are you at looking after yourself and doing your own cooking and washing?
- Have you had a go at making your own meals, using food you have shopped for yourself?
- How good are you with organising money so it lasts and do you need any help?
- Have you thought about registering at a GP practice?
- Are there any social and sports activities you’d like to be involved with at University?
Here are some handy checklists and guides to help you:
