Hey, so I am a mature student, I started university 5 days before my 25th birthday. I am studying Speech and Language Therapy. I have lived on campus during my first year and am planning to live on campus in my second year too!
I am currently adding several new posts every week leading up to September. I’m going to be posting about everything from packing, moving in, getting organised, food to settling in. So remember to subscribe to email notifications if you want to be first to read the new posts!
Anything you want me to write about or research for you? Just ask!! See the contact me form in the main menu.

There are a few easy ways for you to budget, which will make your student finance go further and will keep you eating real food all term.
With just over 2 weeks until the moving in process starts for most universities, I thought what better time than to write a list – well, a list of last minute things to do and check before you go.
Let’s talk stationary, you probably don’t need as much as you think you need.
Generally, when we think of uni students, we think of the party lifestyle, shopping, the societies and sometimes studying. But there are lots of other ways to have fun at university, which require little or no money. I’ve also tried to think of things that students can still do with the current Covid-19 restrictions (I’mContinue reading “Cheap things to do at uni with your flatmates…”
Everyone knows when you are a student you need to be on the lookout for how to save money. But other than searching for student discount everywhere you go, how else can a student save money?

At uni, I need to easy to cook, cheap food but I also want food that is healthy and vegan. I often cook in bulk and freeze the rest, meaning most the time I pull something out the freezer. By cooking meals in bulk it means I am only cooking a few times a week as opposed to daily – it is also much cheaper than buying convenience food, ordering in or cooking daily

It goes without saying that this year will be very different from past years but some things will be the same. Most students will still be moving into student digs, all students will have to settle in to uni life (either physically or virtually) and all students are going to start term – even if it is a bit different to usual.
So you are going to university, your accommodation is sorted and now you need to make sure you are taking everything you need. Instead of buying everything at once, I brought a few things every month leading up to uni, I was also very fortunate to have my Grandparents help me buy lots of the items I needed.
I love to eat this recipe. I is easy to make and can be frozen.
So I have finished my first year at university.

Unfortunately, like all students, this year was cut short and changed due to the pandemic. But I thought it is still a great time for me to look over my first year of university…
I have finished my first semester/term of university and here is a summary of my time.
