10 Things I Wish I’d Known Before Starting University

I remember feeling like a rabbit in the headlights when I started university. There was so much advice flying around about what was important, what I should be doing, how I should be managing my time and annoyingly, most of it was conflicting. Here are a few things I wish I’d known before the start of the first term. I’m now two months into my Master’s degree – I’ve learnt a lot since first year! Buy second hand books It’s…
