Since I myself is likely to be entering university soon, I’d like to talk about some tips on how to get yourself prepared for entry. Many people could easily get a shock on entry as life in university is a lot less spoon-fed and you are mostly left to find, research and learn on your own.

Do also read on the syllabus for the course ssru, and try to have a concept of the what the topics are about. Some universities also provide prep courses for students to learn up before term starts. If they are available, don’t miss out on a chance to equip yourself with some knowledge before entering university. As lecturers in the university aren’t likely to spoon-feed you with information, you may find these prep course invaluable in helping you understand what is taught during lectures.
If you have the possibility, go your university campus and have a tour of the environmental surroundings, merely to familiarise yourself. Record enough time taken for travel so that you can plan your trips when term starts in order to not be late. Personal alarms might be of use if classes end late in the night as the campus might be dark and quiet, and therefore dangerous.
Not forgetting the fun part of likely to university, you are able to shop for new clothes, bags, stationery, etc. so that you look good and feel confident when stepping into unfamiliar surroundings. Take advantage of the sales to truly get your equipment as the cost of these things can actually pile up.
