Welcome by Professor Alison Blunt, Head of School of Geography
As part of the Succeed Project, an initiative by the School of Geography to encourage current and prospective students from various backgrounds by providing virtual academic advice and resources, these are a few videos on current students, their journey to and through university and their tips and advice for new students! You can find the entire playlist here.
“I didn’t face many challenges when it came to studying at university; however, I think what did lighten a bit of the stress was the support that I received from staff and other people on the course who were more than willing to discuss things I was interested in within geography.” – Tanzina
“The biggest challenge for me when I went to university was definitely leaving home. But once I got here, everyone helped each other settle in and all those fears quickly vanished.” – Katharine
“With university, don’t underestimate your free time because you should really be using it to advance your studies as much as you can…” – Mohammed
