    I'm so excited to have received a place at UCL but I have no idea what to do now or what I should be doing now to prepare (: Overwhelmed is an understatement.
    How do you get ready to go to uni? What are you doing? Do any current students have any tips?

    If you're in self-catered accommodation, have you got cookware, cutlery, crockery, utensils etc? Have you ordered a linen pack or are you bringing your own bedding? Bear in mind you have to bring pillows and a duvet as well - and you'll have to wash them yourself in the laundrette so no feather duvets unless you're taking them home for dry cleaning!
    Also student bank accounts - have a look as to what the best one is on moneysavingexpert or another website like that. You might be able to set one up now, if you have your confirmation of your now-unconditional offer and you're over 18. Also maybe start having a look at your finances in general - what money have you got coming in, and what is going to be going out again? What is your budget per week looking like?
    Other than that, i am in pretty much the same situation as you since i've done most of these things over the last 2 days...
