    • Get experience in the field you want to study
    • Travel - so many gap year schemes out there to do free voluntary work abroa, apply ASAP before spaces get filled up
    • Get a job - earn some money, would be very handy to have extra cash on top of maintenance loan while at university
    • Do any other sort of voluntary job
    • Find a hobby, would be great to write in personal statement
    • Maybe do a part-time course if you wanna learn something new? (They're so expensive though lmao)
