After highschool I found it a bit difficult to make close friends I have people but they are more like acquaintances, I move out for uni thinking it would be better for me to have a fresh start. I’m a girl and all I ever wanted was a best friend or at least 2 close friends, I thought if I do nursing as it is female dominated course I would be able to make some female friends but I found out the uni I went to recently just started to do nursing so every and I mean EVERYONE is older then me some are in their 40s some are 25 some are even 47 and I’m the only 19 year old there, I love the course I want to become a nurse but what can i do to make some friends I can’t really join society bc of covid and not only that my flat mates do not talk they do not want to socialise honestly I haven’t seen any of them since December

Try not to worry, I feel like this sometimes but sometimes put my expectations really high to do something and when it doesn't go to plan I feel like I have failed sort of. This year is hard for maintaining friendships and making new friends are there any online societies you could join? Maybe you could speak to someone at uni about speaking to others within the uni to meet more people. There may also be group on facebook etc to meet people in the area or at uni. Hopefully when things starting open up more you be able to see more people and make some friends. Try not to feel down, you've got this!

Hi there,

I thought I’d reach out and recommend getting in touch with your University support facilities / academic advisor? They’re role is to help you out whenever, and I’m sure that they will be able to listen to you, and recommend solutions to you that may seem helpful 😊
As well, I know you said that you couldn’t really join a society – but could you get involved with some volunteering? This may be a good way to meet new people, as well as develop some of your skills at the same time. There are even opportunities to do some virtual volunteering at the minute, keep an eye out on the onlinevolunteering.org page!
Lastly, I hope that you are finding time to do some things that YOU enjoy. At the moment, the world we live in can be very stressful, and often we can feel as though everything is getting on top! So, make sure that you’re giving yourself a bit of break and doing things that bring you happiness 😊
