    I'm worried about:

    1. Getting lost
    2. Horrible flat mates
    3. Not making any friends
    Lost wise, after a while you'll get used to it. If you ever feel like you dont know where you're going, just ask

    Hmmmm... thats a tricky one, I think you can flat swap through the Uni

    Everyone worries about that, when I first went to college, I thought I wouldn't make any new friends. But we just have to remember that we are all in the same boat

    It depends whether you really enjoy your course. If you don't, it will be difficult. Hang on in there!

    Having bad flat mates and not liking my course.
    Have you had any tasters for your course? Flat mates can go both ways, but you can always flat swap if it gets bad.

    Loneliness
    Just try to keep in contact with your friends - perhaps if its a city with a big centre you can meet up or even use social media

    I'm worried about not enjoying my course, and therefore not doing well. In all honesty, I only picked my degree course because I did well in the subject at A Level and didn't know what else to do

    Not really, I mean I had an interview and they showed me what the course is and I like it, but anything can happen really. Oh okay, that's great to know that

    Oh, did you enjoy that topic? Have you had any taster sessions? If not, they would give you an idea of what to expect

    An interview? What have you applied to do? :happy: You don't know what to expect until you're there

    You could always do what my brother does and allocate shelves in the fridge/freezer - so all the food on that shelf is yours and unless they ask you, they can't touch it

    I didn't enjoy the subject (Geology) as such, but I discovered that I was very good at it (I hope that doesn't sound arrogant!). I don't have any other academic interests or career aspirations, so doing a degree in Geology/Geoscience seemed like the most logical choice. I haven't had any taster sessions, but I've been to course overview talks on open days

    Ooohhhhh that sounds interesting Ah I'm sure you'll get it! Just look at me, for example, I didn't expect to get more than one and in the end all of them accepted me. Except for one, which declined it, then sent me an offer for another course, and then invited me for an interview as they now have more places :laugh: You can't win! :rofl:
