A couple of months ago I wrote an article for online magazine The Student Pocket Guide, and it fits in perfectly with my University blogging series so thought I’d post it on here too!
Everyone makes mistakes, it’s part of life, but if you could learn from the mistakes of others, wouldn’t that make your own life a whole lot easier? University is one of the most exciting times of your lives, but it’s also a huge learning curve. With this carefully researched list, put together with help from real students, you’ll be able to avoid some of things that other students now regret doing!

We’ve all been there, starting somewhere for the first time with questions and worries that run around your head. Some factors of student life are set in stone, like the course syllabus. Almost everything else is up to you. Join societies and engage in group tasks. The friends you can make and the skills you gain are second to none.
