Tips for a uni drop out going back to uni (2 academic years later)Watch
I have recently reapplied to study closer to home at York St John University and will be doing a similar course. I will be 20 when I return, and will most likely be part way through seeking my ADHD diagnosis.
I was just wondering if anybody has any tips for being a slightly older student at university/ tips for a returning student after having dropped out previously?
Thanks in advance xx

I did the same for the same reasons, and nobody would have noticed the age difference if I hadn't told them, so I wouldn't worry about that! I just feel a bit more mature and prepared this time, which is certainly a good thing on a personal level. I think of the first attempt as somewhat of a warmup or a trial run, and now I'm ready to actually do my best and enjoy a degree It's a good opportunity to remember what worked well last time, and what went wrong so you know what to avoid where you can, and to seek help when you need it.
