    I know what you mean. It's whether or not they will do that?

    Keep trying, it's still early days. You've got another 3-4 years at uni so there's plenty of time to make friends

    I just get anxious when i'm lonely on weekends or when I see other people in groups. It seems like everyone has friends already.

    I know what anxiety feels like. I've had panic attacks while at uni because I get scared the friends I do have will walk out on me and I'll end up alone like I have been for the vast majority of my life. You just have to push things in the first weeks and make things happen otherwise your worries will simply become a self fulfilling prophecy. Also, once you have a good group of friends, you won't worry about other groups of friends.

    Another thing, for language applicants especially. I've noticed when talking to people starting uni to study languages, they expect to watch the occasional foreign film, go on their year abroad and just swan around the odd café and come back fluent. A lot of people fail to realise just how much work it actually is, despite the low numbers of contact hours. You'll get crazy amount of vocab every week, and you'll have to learn even more in independent study. Also, you'll cover so many grammar points in a very short amount of time, so there's that to stay on top of too. Culture modules also require a lot of reading, with around 10 sources to be expected for a 1,500 word essay, and it's common you'll take at least two culture modules a semester.

    For the year abroad, it's often the case you'll have to sort out your own accommodation, phone contracts, medical check ups and any necessary resident permits, often in places where little English is spoken. This is incredibly daunting but doable if you did well before you went

    Don't mean to scare anyone applying for languages, but it is a lot more intense than people think.

    How to write academically, as a postgrad student I recently had a look at my first year undergrad essays and they were not good (weak arguments, poor referencing, poor structure etc.) I'm amazed how far I've come since then as it massively improved over the following two years. I wish I knew how to write to a postgrad standard before I started my Masters but I'll find out when I get the feedback for my first essay.

    I would have liked to know that it is very much like school. Registers, attendance is monitored actively and we have to take subjects we didn't choose to do.
