I’m hoping to study psychology in Lincoln starting 2019 but I’m worried about moving out. I have diagnosed anxiety I take medication for and i rarely go out clubbing or socialising, i’m much calmer by myself in my own space. Do you think I’m going to really struggle at uni? I’m thinking of getting a studio room so then I have my own space to cook and eat, I really don’t want to exclude myself cause I have no confidence, I’m terrible at making friends. Can anyone share their experiences of uni with anxiety? Was it terrible or did it help you? Any tips?

Hello Noodle1975, :thumbsup:

It is totally normal to feel nervous about starting university - whether you’re moving into halls or staying at home. But there is no need to worry as there should be lots of support offered at your chosen university.

For example, we have a Student Development and Well-being department who are available to help with things such as; mental health, learning support, counselling, homesickness and anxiety support and much more. I'm sure other universities will offer something similar and will be happy to inform you of their services once you arrive at university. You could also contact them ahead of time to arrange a meeting to discuss the support that will be available.

Please do not worry about making friends at university, even if you prefer to not go out drinking/clubbing. University is much more than nights out getting drunk, in fact many students will feel exactly the same as you do. I know at our university for example, some students would much rather spend the night in watching movies or ordering a takeaway. In fact last year we even had a Harry Potter society which brought students together every week to watch one of the films. Whatever university you decide to attend I am sure they will have societies like ours, where you can meet like-minded people.

University is an exciting time and I wish you the best of luck in your studies.

Hope this helps,

Tom :five:
