You’ve heard the saying ‘your school days are the best days of your life’ but for many it’s the first year of university that takes the crown. There are so many reasons why your first year of university is an unforgettable one, from the new people that you meet and the course you’ve worked so hard to gain a place on to infamous Freshers’ Week events and the freedom that goes hand-in-hand with student life. We’ve put together a rundown of just some of the moments that will make your first year at uni the best year of your life…
Friends for life
In the majority of cases, the mates you make at university are a group of individuals that will share experiences with you for the rest of your life. It’s important to remember that everyone is in the same boat at university and with the prospect of meeting people on your course with the same interests as you, you are certain to find someone that likes what you’re all about, which is pretty special!
You’ll meet people everywhere – on your course, in halls, during part time work, on nights out – and whether it’s just a fleeting encounter or they become regulars in your everyday life, the people you meet will make your experience even more incredible.
A course you love
Having an opportunity to study in an area that you have a genuine interest in is another defining reasons why your first year at uni will be the best and most interesting so far. Discover what you’re passionate about and take those first steps towards choosing the career that you want.
For many, the first year at university and away from home is the first time they will experience that initial taste of independence. It can be quite the shock for most people, but overall this freedom is something that makes your first year extra brilliant.
The party lifestyle
The nightlife of your university town or city may be just one of the factors that led you to pick that particular place to study. Freshers’ Week is the highlight of any student calendar and will help you discover some of the haunts that you’ll frequent throughout the academic year and beyond. Freshers and the many nights out after this offer great environments to meet new people who just want to have a great time.
Another plus point of Freshers’ Week is the many clubs and societies you’ll get to join, another way to meet people with similar interests.
An unforgettable atmosphere
Whether it’s your course, the nightlife, the people or your student halls that define your experience, the atmosphere as a whole is one you’ll never forget.
