    I have just finished my BSc at a top London Uni and I have had a tough time throughout the course with anxiety and a real lack of work-life balance.

    I have been very lucky to get an MSc place at another uni and I am really worried about starting my course and the effect it will have on my mental health. I know I need to make the most of this opportunity and really want to enjoy uni this time round.

    Any advice is much appreciated!

    Are you sure this is the right time to be doing a masters? I only say this because I'm finishing my final year of uni too with mental health problems and I think it will be good for me to take a break and recover a bit as the stress just made things so much worse. Obviously you know yourself best so you will know what will be the better thing for your health but I would think about it as you are clearly concerned. I plan to wait until I am in a more stable place before I do a masters course.
