Preparation for returning to university

With summer coming to an end and the cold weather already showing it can only mean one thing – we all have to return to university/college/school. Whether you’re returning to university after a looonnnggggg three or four months off, or you’re returning to school after six weeks (which wasn’t long enough) you’ve inevitably got to return.

For me, I have had a very long summer. So long that it started in December. I haven’t been in university since December due to falling ill and being unable to complete the year (my final year too!). This means that I have been out of education for, wait for it, 9 months!!!

I forget how to study after the three months of summer so i honestly have no clue how i’m going to get back in to the swing of things this time. I have tried researching topics for my dissertation but this hasn’t helped as I have no clue what I want my dissertation topic to be.

I’m also really nervous to return due to the fact that i’m still unwell (i’m probably even worse than I was when I stopped uni last year). I’m worried that I will struggle to attend lectures as the university is a good 1 and a half hour commute (as I no longer have my car so I have to get the train). I’m also worried that I will only have one friend this year, and he is only in one of my modules which only runs until January! after this, if I have made no friends, I will literally have no one for support.

The only thing that I can do is try again and hope for the best (and try my hardest, I am aiming for a first!). I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer and good luck to everyone who is returning to their studies!!

  1. It’s totally natural to be nervous and even a bit scared in this situation! I’d be feeling exactly the same. But as you said yourself, all you can do is your best. Nobody can ask for more than that ๐Ÿ™‚ best of luck x
