Finding it hard at universityWatch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
So I'm going onto my second semester now of my first year at university and am struggling quite a bit. I struggled with home sickness, making friends and feeling left out in my flat. Although I've made a few friends, I have yet to make any close friends with people on my course and this is really difficult as I find myself feeling very lonely at university and am really struggling with keeping up with the work load as well as trying to achieve good grades. I feel i'm failing already as I've only applied to a few spring weeks and have been rejected by some so far and feel as if I have no set plan for the future. Everyone makes it out as if I don't land a spring week, I won't get a summer internship or a graduate placement but it's just all too competitive. I'm feeling very lost and down.
