Melz talks about Education

Adjusting to university life

The leap from being an A-Level student to a university student is one of the biggest and most exciting transitions you'll ever experience. It may seem a little overwhelming right now, but I’m here to guide you through the differences one at a time.

Firstly, there'll be big changes in your academic life. You'll notice there’ll be less time spent in the classroom and a greater focus on independent study. This may take a bit of getting used to, but it's an excellent opportunity to explore new ideas and develop your own views on a subject.

You'll also notice a big difference in teaching styles. Rather than just having one standard type of lesson across all subjects, your time will be split between lectures, seminars, tutorials and, depending on your course, time in labs or on a placement. While it may seem daunting at first, ultimately everyone is in the same boat. You're also given plenty of time to adjust to the changes - in most cases, your first year marks don't count towards to your final university grade.

Along with all the academic changes, you're also going to have a whole host of new opportunities to get involved in far more than just your degree. You’ll meet new people from all walks of life, explore a brand new city and discover things you never knew about yourself. What's more, you'll be able to do all of this and more with one of the best students' unions in the country on your doorstep!

I know coming to uni for the first time is a huge deal. I remember what it felt like when I first arrived at Charles Morris halls with all my worldly belongings and not a clue where to put them all - fortunately, there are loads of people who will help you get settled in!

Remember - the Union is here to support you through your degree and can really help you find your feet. As your Education Officer, I can help with the academic side of student life, or if you just want someone to chat to, the Exec door is always open. So have a great Freshers’, take time to settle in and prepare yourself for some of the best years of your life.
