    Hi mira786x,

    That's really exciting! Are you looking forward to it?

    My advice would be to try and compile as many questions as you can into a notebook. The shadowing scheme is the perfect opportunity to ask questions and find out more about higher education, direct from the most reliable source - our students! Ask about modules, field trips, placements, extracurricular opportunities, the SU - anything that takes your interest.

    Ask for a tour of the campus and the city if you're not familiar with it. Ask them their favourite places and get the chance to see it through a University student's eyes. Talk with them about accommodation, finances, application tips - anything and everything!

    Make sure you dress for the weather and plan ahead - layers are good as it may be colder/warmer than where you're coming from, if this isn't Plymouth

    It would also be good to engage with the academics and the student's friends, to enquire about the course and find out about the university experience from multiple sources.

    I hope this helps a little - I graduated from the University last year, so I'm more than happy to help you with any further questions you may have!
