    I heard this is a common thing - you're first year friends won't be you're second year friends and the friendship group will continuously change?
    Worried about making friends at university and then having to find a fresh new group later on?

    Your friend groups change fluidly so if you get a decent set of friends during first year it's unlikely that you'll need to actively look for more later on.

    I still have the same friends from my first year, but in the second year I also made a lot of new friends and grew closer to some old friends. Your friendship group will change, but it doesn't mean you have to ignore all your old friends if you don't want to!

    Personally I had lots of friends in first year. In second year the number substantially dropped due to people dropping out, changing courses, going on placement or just drifting away. One guy who was one of my closest friends who I ended up living with in 2nd year shown his true colours and became an absolute insufferable ****** (this was after we had signed the contract and so was stuck with him). He made our 2nd year house hell.

    At uni you will quickly realise the people who are your true friends. People I thought were good mates turned out to not give a ****, but it works both ways, people I considered acquaintances turned out to be good friends.

    Hello ,

    It just depends - just because it happens to some people, doesn't mean it'll happen to you. It's not like you'll get to the end of First Year and then have to go round asking people to be friends with etc. In my experience, it does happen. My friendship group changed from first to second but I didn't stop talking to my friends from first year, I just had more in common with other people!

    Good luck
