What's it all about?
What is life really like as a student?
It can be whatever you want it to be, but for the most part students split their time between studying, taking part in other aspects of university life (such as clubs, societies and volunteering), socialising, and part-time work. Each individual has their own priorities and experiences – it’s about taking advantage of the opportunities that are available and balancing study, leisure and work. If you get the balance right it will be a challenge, but you’ll have a fantastic time.
