Hi, my name is Victoria Evans. I am a student at the University of Reading studying BA English Language. University is a daunting experience at the best of times, but without someone you know who has been through it before it can be both stressful and nerve-wracking. Preparing in advance is key, both physically and mentally. Make sure you have read the various literature about your course, halls of residence and your university. But don’t stop there as information from the uni itself is unlikely to fully prepare you, especially as those who have written it may not have experienced it as a student for a number of years. A student’s perspective will provide you with that extra knowledge about what you may encounter on your new venture, so have a read of my blog posts and don’t hesitate to contact me with any unanswered questions via the contact form.
