However, unlike a head spin, university is a wonderful, challenging and worthwhile experience where you get the chance to learn, make new friends, and receive outstanding opportunities.

Starting out at university is a daunting, exciting, challenging, rewarding experience. For most new students, there are a lot of mixed emotions. I certainly felt unsure when I started, but I found as I completed each assignment, I gained confidence and new skills. I uncovered some of the secrets to success.
I’ve been thinking about my journey since I graduated last year, and how the secrets I uncovered weren’t about writing academically or researching better (although those skills are important too!). I think the best way to explain is to share my journey with you…
