  • Dealing with Homesickness

    Although many people will try to tell you they don’t miss home, or that they were so busy with new things they didn’t even think about it, it’s very likely that it’s not true.

  • Keeping in touch at uni

    I’ve got to be honest, I’m surprised how well I have kept in touch with my friends at home over the last three years.

  • Home Sweet Home

    As Easter is quickly approaching many people may be considering going home for a while. I travelled home this weekend for the first time since Christmas and I had forgotten how much you need to remember and how many things you need to do before you leave. My first piece of advice for anyone thinking of going […]

  • Combating Homesickness

    Moving away from home can be really difficult, especially if you’re moving far away. Homesickness can really affect you at any point of uni, or it may not affect you at all.

  • Work vs Life Over the Holidays

    It’s no secret that in university you get a lot of work, even over the holidays – especially over the holidays.
