Now the excitement and the bubble of Fresher’s Week has finally burst for most of us, and the 9am lectures commence along with the a severe case of fresher’s flu that just will not budge – some freshers may start to feel slightly deflated, sad and longing for home.
It’s that time of year again, the two weeks of fresher’s have been and gone and it’s just a matter of time before the dreaded ‘fresher’s flu’ hits. The 9am starts have become a stark reality and yep, that’s right, its flu season yet again and we need to learn how to prevent, cure and look after ourselves…
As a student, money can be a struggle so in any area you can save, you definitely should. Whether that is by cutting back on nights out, doing a little less shopping or visiting some of these sites I am about to give you, it all helps!
If you haven’t already been bombarded with leaflets, free lollipops and invitations to join absurd promotional events, you are obviously lucky enough to live in a University with non-aggressive letting agencies nearby. For those of us who do, the mad rush to find a student house to live in for the next academic year could hardly have gone unnoticed. Hunting for housemates, signing contracts, paying deposits… the whole thing is all a bit bewildering.
