Hi everyone, I thought I would write out everything you will typically need if you are starting Uni in September, hopefully it helps someone!

The main things are stationary; notepads, pens, highlighters (which will soon become your best friend) and folders. I had one folder for each module and it keeps everything so much more organised.

Other essentials include a good backpack/ bag, reusable coffee cups and water bottles, tuppaware to fill with lunch and snacks.

If you are moving to London then have a look at Oyster cards, it may be worth purchasing weekly tickets if you are in most days, however if you are only in 2-3 days then it may be cheaper using your contactless card. The same applies to Universities all over- check out the local transport and see what deals are on!

Another transport tip is choosing which bank to open up your student account with. I chose Santander and received a free 16-25 railcard which remains valid for 3 years, meaning I save a ton of money if travelling home! Take a look at what banks offer and choose which deal suits you best.

Join Facebook or WhatsApp chats of your soon-to-be classmates as it is a great way to organise freshers events and make friends before you even start :-)
