Hi, hope you're well!

First things first, don't worry about being worried. Nerves are completely normal, and everyone in your class will feel the same way. It's great that you want to prepare though, as that'll help you immensely.

Your university should have some web pages on preparing for the start of your studies. You'll typically find an example timetable, any recommended reading, etc. They may also suggest ways to connect with other students (such as Facebook groups), which can be useful for getting started.

One thing you should definitely find out ahead of time is your first week timetable. This is the week where you'll get introduced to not just your course, but your University and their procedures. You likely won't need to prepare much for this, but it'll help calm your nerves.

In your first year, you'll likely have a relatively small timetable. Outside of lectures/seminars, you'll be expected to do some private studying, such as reading suggested books, as well as completing assignments. You won't be thrown in the deep end, but any preparation you can do now will be really useful. You'll also have contact time with tutors, who can alleviate your fears and cover any topics you're struggling with.

Our advice when you start is to focus on settling in to the course. You'll want to get used to the work load, as well as your typical activities across the week. Spend some time socialising too - after all, the university experience isn't just about studying! Getting to know others will also help ease you into your lessons.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello BashR

It's totally normal to feel nervous! It's a big change with lots of excitement and new experiences. Everyone is in the same boat and is just trying to find their feet the first few weeks (and months!). Don't put too much pressure on yourself, it's a lot to take in in a short space of time.

It looks like your biggest concern seems to be adapting to what is expected from you from your course. This is completely understandable and I'm sure your chosen univesity has lots of support available to help new first years. Here at the university of Brighton we have a programme called Hit The Ground Running, that you would be welcome to have a look at. It has loads of information on what you need to get off to the best start at university. It would definitely be worth contacting your chosen university to see if they offer something similar.

It's also worth remembering If you are holding an offer to start your law course, this means your chosen university believes you have what it takes to be successful with your studies :clap2:

Best of luck
