    Hello!

    I will be starting university in September and I was wondering if anyone has a good list to follow which has all the essentials and nothing extra or not required immediately.

    I'm in a rush as I will need to get everything ready before the 2nd since I'll be on holiday till late august.

    This is the list that I had, it's probably got more than most people take but a lot of the stuff like stationery can be bought when you're at uni anyway, plus you can adapt it to what you specifically need

    That's a pretty long list, but very detailed. Thank you!
