    It's my first year and although I know I am NOT going to drop out, I am really having a hard time in my first year. The workload is awful, and I am really lonely here, don't really have friends. And I just wondered if anyone else had a similar situation in their first year and managed to turn it around? Although I am not expecting the workload to get any better lol but hopefully next year I might be able to manage it easier.

    I had quite a tough time with my workload last year. It takes a bit of getting used to, so hopefully your second term should be easier As for the friends situation, have you joined any societies, etc? A good way of meeting people is usually to hang around the bar, etc.
