After anticipating your summer holiday for quite some time you are now ready to return to university. You are probably bored of the tedious tasks of real life. It can only mean one thing; we are agonisingly close to another semester at university.
As students look forward to their homecoming and a break from vigorous work (well, in spells) it can often become boring quite quickly. There are many signs of this and the following are just a few of the highlighted truths.
· You are constantly speaking to your university friends via Whatsapp, Skype and Facebook
· You’re being fed real meals and not just beans on toast or noodles
· All your friends at home have to hear about your university stories and what you usually get up to
· It’s been five days before you’ve been out and managed to have a drink
· When you have been out, you’ve had to pay more than £1 for alcohol
These points bring the contrasts between university and home life to the forefront, you are most likely used to transforming from one life to the other. But as we close in on the summer holidays, you may wish to enjoy the last month of not worrying about deadlines. Follow these tips as you prepare for a successful year.
Get Your Stationary & Essentials
An obvious preparation to any college or university year, yet one that is still overlooked. Get everything you need from paper to a memory stick. Having notebooks isn’t as integral as it once was as many now take their laptops to lectures. But if that’s the case you will still need a memory stick to back up your work. Get hold of folders, notepads, pens, back up hard drives and much more. For more on these types of products be sure to check out our Staples discount codes to find unrivalled offers that could help you save on these fundamentals.
Everything For Your Room
Many people love to decorate their room, adding individuality via posters and other additions. Be sure to have everything ready for your new room with bedding, pillows, a comfortable desk chair and more.
Extra Equipment & Technology
If you’re a little bit of a geek then you might wish to go that extra mile. You may want a dual screen setup for your iMac or a HDMI cable that enables you to stream your computer via your television screen. There are many other sleek ideas for your room such as Bluetooth speakers and more. So find everything you could possibly need with trusty Amazon. Students can find exclusive discounts without moving from the comfortable spot you’ve found this summer, just act on Amazon promo codes from the sanctuary of your home.
Ensure You Have Enough Food
After being accustomed to the luxuries of home food and your parent’s cooking, you may wish to stock up on some tasty foods for now. Get your favourite snacks whilst you have money. The hard times will surely set in and before you know it you will resort to noodles as your regular meal. So make the most of having money (or being able to persuade your Mom and Dad into buying some of your favourite food) and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Look out for the latest promotions and also Tesco delivery codes. You will get money off with our Tesco promotional codes when you shop online.
As you gear up for another successful year in education, it’s key to start putting plans into action. So be ready to stock up on everything you need before travelling to your halls or home.
