Many students arrive at university with the idea that this will be 'the time of their lives'. However, some students find that being a fresher is not all it's cracked-up to be: they are not immediately at ease with university culture and find it hard to deal with the day-to-day issues arising from living away from home. The Student Life Handbook draws on the experiences of over 160 students from all over the UK to offer practical advice on balancing domestic demands with university study. Covering many aspects of university life such as finance, accommodation, leaving home and joining the social scene, this guide will help students reap the greatest possible benefit and enjoyment from their time at university.
