Inspiring, challenging, fun and fulfilling are just some of the words that can be used to describe student life.

There’s really no typical university experience – it’s as individual as the student themselves, and it’s down to them to get the most out of it.

We all know the cliché of the lazy student (spends most of the day in bed, only gets up to answer door for pizza etc. etc.) but it’s almost impossible to be bored at uni. With most places offering countless clubs, societies and work experience, there are plenty of things for your child to get stuck into.They’ll be able to make lifelong friends, keep fit, boost their CV, and enrich their lives in an experience they’ll never forget.

They’ll be learning a lot too. Not just about their chosen subject, but about themselves and others. University life is full of lessons, whether it’s learning not to leave an essay until the night before, learning to cook their first meal from scratch, or learning the hard way that red socks and white shirts are a laundry disaster waiting to happen.

Universities are designed to help young people grow, and develop into adults who will go on to shape the world. Whilst student life will give your child a newfound independence, there’s still plenty of support, both academic and pastoral, which will help them make the most out of their time.

Ok, you probably won’t want to know about everything your child gets up to at uni, but you can find out more about student life by viewing the video on the main student page.
