It's been a very comfortable transition from being at home to being at university. The staff are immensely supportive and if you have any problems then they are more than willing to try and help you. All the people I have met have been absolutely lovely, and when you move to university you're all in the same boat so if you are feeling really worried then know that you're not the only one feeling that way.
