    It's a brilliantly interesting, varied and relevant subject to be studying, so good choice. I bet you'll get into it in no time!

    A positive attitude really helps a lot - honestly if you go into something thinking you won't be able to do it then chances are you will struggle. Uni is a new experience but it's not a major shock to the system, you'll be fine. And there is a lot of support available during first year and throughout, so if you are struggling all you have to do is ask one of the many people available for help. And if it's something you enjoy, then you should find yourself having a good time

    Well university still provide extra support Its no different. If anything the help is enchanced and more personalised You really dont need to be scared, you just do what you can do! University isnt as hard as people think. Its just the lifestyle change that scares most i think :/

    Good you feel better I've never heard of "residential schools" but maybe it's where you go away for a period of time to learn something specific or for experience? It sounds pretty cool to me tbh.
