It’s that time, when students have obtained their grades and are moving on to a new chapter in their lives. University is upon us, freshers and stocking up with pots and pans, parents are packing the food parcels and the clubs are getting ready for the fresher events.
As new students move on to independence, they are often unprepared for what University has to offer. So here is my list of essentials to undergo a fantastic year at UNI.
*The little black dress
Every girl has ‘the little black dress’. An essential for uni, tone it down with a denim jacket for casual evenings, or glam it up for a night of dancing. Get this little number at Riverisland for £35.
*Stationary, You don’t want to go empty handed to your lectures. If you want the perfect looking stationary go to Paperchase or Whsmith. Folders, pens, post it notes and diaries is all you need to get through Uni.
*Pots and pans- Your independent, now is the time to learn to cook and put all that learning to practice. Maybe start simple with beans on toast.
*A new University bag.
Depending on your course, you will have to carry round books and endless pages of work. A new bag for University is the perfect excuse. Here is one of my faves from Topshop at £125. Or check out this rucksack from Topshop at £34
*Glasses, plates and cutlery! A Uni essential especially when your mates come over to pre drink, you can’t expect them to drink from the bottle. Check out these cool glasses from notonthighstreet for under £7.
*An endless collection of DVDS to watch with your flat mates. For cheap deals check out CEX.
*The heels you wear everywhere. Check out these ones from newlook for £29.99
*Laptop- If you haven’t bothered to purchase a laptop for Uni then maybe you shouldn’t be going!
*Printer- Rymans have great deals and offer student discounts
*Interview outfit- You never know when you need to look smart, whether for an interview or presentation. Check out this outfit from next for £32
*Earphones- For the long walks to University or the awkward silences on the Uni buses. I love these from newlook at £5.99
*Alcohol- A must have for Predrinks before a night out
*The cute little winter hat for when it gets cold and snowy! Check out this one out from riverisland at £5
*Cute Pjamas for when your hungover and lounging around your flat. I love these ones from Topshop at £28
*A travel mug- For when you need coffee to wake you up whilst in a boring lecture. Or a flask for vodka if you have a late lecture. Check out these from urban outfitters. Travel mug, £15, Flask- £12
So to the newbies of Uni, Have a blast! Enjoy the best years of your life and make many memories
