Absolutely! This is something I was a bit worried about before I started uni (I'm going into my second year now), as I'd never been clubbing before and I wasn't a big drinker. I quickly found that because uni draws in such as wide range of people, fitting in happened really naturally. There are so many clubs and societies that don't drink or go clubbing- there really is something for everyone- and the phrase 'sober social' is more popular than ever before. Personally, I have a group of friends that don't go clubbing or drink lots, and then another group that are the opposite (I can hang out with either group depending how I feel)! In summary, I would say you really don't need to worry about this, but if you still feel unsure then I would reccomend speaking to a student mentor once you arrive at uni- they are regular uni students who want to share their advice on studying/living at uni. Hope this helps.

Hey!
I think this project is on pause for a little bit but definitely look out for when we post next! My other recommendation is to spend some time at uni before starting an AMA- it is much different when you start compared to a term in :rofl:
Hopefully we can add you the next time we add threads though, thanks for offering your help!

Read this post:

Generally, yes it is. But it isn't impossible to be a commuter student and have an active social life at uni (covid permitting of course).

Hi I’m really stuck on deciding whether to go to a midlands uni or Hertfordshire. Like I want to have a good uni experience in terms of city life (like what you can do in the city), social life, nightlife and the overall unis themselves. I’ve heard Hertfordshire is quite boring and at the weekends people would rather go home and go out in their own city because there’s not much to do in Hertfordshire. Any opinions whether it’s from personal experience or not would be so helpful!

Hi!
Since there is no AMA for Hertfordshire, it is probably worth looking in the TSR guide for it here and posting on the forum here.
I would provide information if I could but I'm afraid I know nothing about the uni, I hope that these links help :yes:

Hi dj_atmos,

Whilst living in university halls is a great way to make friends there's so many other opportunities to do so as well. These include your course, sports teams and societies. I would encourage you to get involved with as many different societies and put on events as possible to open yourself up to new people!

How to start your personal statement for UCAS?

Also, I was wondering if you have any tips/advice for it?
Avoid using clichés such as : "once upon a time, for as long as I can remember etc... Remember that universities have hundreds and thousands of applicants, they don't have time to read your life story. Get straight to the point, talk about why you want to study your chosen course. Talk about how your current subjects will help you in your degree. Also talk about your work experience and the skills you have gained from it that you can use in your degree.

Hope this helps,
Aisha.

Might be better to ask on a medicine forum but that seems unlikely.
