Whatever school you attend or where you study, one thing remains constant: being a university student is stressful. There will be difficult periods at school, in your social life, and in your profession.
Maintain contact with your relatives. They will always be there for you to succeed, no matter how far away they are. Keep in mind that colleges have systems that can tackle several problems at once. Simply inquire if you have any questions.
When it comes to luck at college, it may not always be on your side.
Don't be scared to try new things and fail. Always be willing to try new things. It's time to switch on your inquisitive and exploratory mode!
Often, the errors you made in college will turn out to be some of the most valuable lessons you will ever acquire. Accept and learn from your errors.
Another key life skill you may develop is the ability to prioritize your goals. Make a list of what you want to accomplish at the start of each term so you don't go too far away from your final goals.
Find the study methods that best fit your personality and use them consistently. We all know that cramming notes the night before an exam is a waste of time.
It is not always the case that what works for others will work for you. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to learning... Except to be a “night owl” before every exam.
You will be happier if you begin learning sooner rather than later.
Begin by eating well, going to the gym, and choosing an exercise that you enjoy. Learning to prepare a few basic foods is an excellent method to develop healthy habits. Cooking also allows you to meet new people and save money. Even if you're living in a dorm with no permanent kitchen access, learning to cook for yourself is one of the many rites of passage to adulthood.
If your school is not near to your house, you will be responsible for doing your washing and folding.
A word of advice: to minimize shrinkage, dry your garments in cold air, never combine colors and whites, wash your bedding at least once every two weeks, and hang up your lovely items.
Some students attend university in their hometowns and live at home; many foreign students, on the other hand, opt to rent a room or an apartment with friends rather than reside in campus dorms. While dormitories aren't the most luxurious accommodations, they do teach students valuable life skills. You'll learn to appreciate and adjust to your current situation. You'll find out how successfully (or poorly) you engage with other pupils when they're under duress (like exams or 8 am classes). Living on campus will be an educational experience that will teach you not just independence but also codependence. Even if things don't go as planned, you'll figure out how to make the best of it.
There are several advantages to having a long list of activities and accomplishments on your CV. Leadership roles and a track record of devotion to an activity excite employers. It will help you get into graduate school. You can even learn new talents by joining a group or association. However, the most significant advantage is that it will assist you in expanding your social network. It will assist you in making contacts with individuals in the club (supervisors, professors, and other students) as well as future networking by allowing you to connect more readily with alumni and other people active in a similar club or activity.
Managing your own finances may be scary, especially when your bank account is depleted and you're hungry. You may save a lot of money by learning how to budget your money. Make a note of how much money you intend to spend on things to do at university each day. One less cup of coffee per week can make a significant effect.

Notes on post-it notes

Note: When deciding what to bring to the university, resist the need to spend a lot of money on stationery. Stick on a tight budget since you'll go through paper and pens like a mouse through cheese!
