With the vaccine rollouts, it is likely that students may be able to move into the student halls this September once again. It’s important to think about all the little things you may need once you can move, especially for your first year of uni. With this student halls packing list, you will not make the same mistake of forgetting common items like others.
Once it becomes safe to move in, your brain can be very scrambled from trying to think about every single item you will need to live on your own. You may be searching through your university’s website, Reddit, and other forums for answers. To make sure you have all the basics, you can check out our list here and skip the searching.
Even after reading a list of the basics, there are still more items you will need while living in the student halls. You never want to be under packed or unprepared for uni life, so the following items can help you be properly prepared.
So one thing that 2021 has brought with it is the UKs actual, no gracing period, exit from the European Union. Regardless of how you feel about the situation, it's happened and now we have to get used to all of the changes that has come along with that.
One of those changes is that the UK will no longer be able to take part in the Erasmus+ scheme. Something that allowed students to go study abroad in Europe with no tuition fees and also receive a grant for their living costs.
It is a fact that one of the aspects of choosing to go to university is unfortunately acquiring some student loan debt.
So, being a student it is useful to come up with short-term financial goals that you need to look after. If you know the basics of personal finance management, then you would also know that there are some other financial goals that you should focus on while studying!
But how to set goals when Covid-19 is still hanging around? Does this have any effect on your financial goals? Let’s find out in the discussion.
Happy New Year! 2021, maybe a time to finish that UCAS if you haven’t already and hopefully start receiving some offers. If you haven’t received any, don’t worry, there’s some tips for that later on in the blog. I’ll also talk a bit about the very recent situation, which has caused quite a bit of confusion, the cancellation of GCSEs and A-Levels.
The likelihood is that your uni application is done and dusted. In which case… well done! The UCAS process is hard work, let alone doing it during a global pandemic. Put on top of that all the frustrations caused by multiple lockdowns and you’ve definitely got something to be proud of.
I’m sure you get told time and time again, but it has been a mentally and emotionally challenging time so being proud of what you have achieved so far, however small, is the least you can do for yourself. Yes, Shakespeare wrote an entire play during his lockdown in the plague, but, unfortunately, we can’t all be a world famous playwright… so writing a personal statement and sending it off to universities is a perfectly good achievement.
