• Everyone has sex in Freshers week – This simply isn’t true, while there are many people that do, they is still a large majority of people that do not. Don’t feel you need to have sex and certainly try not to go out every night in Freshers’ week with the aim of having sex at the end of it.
  • You can only have fun if you get drunk and enjoy nightclubs. Again not true, most universities have absolutely loads of clubs, some more wild and drunken than others, go along to the sports and activities fair and choose a few that might be right for you.
  • I have multiple choice exams in my first year, they’ll be easy right? Wrong! Multiple choice at university is substantially harder than any multiple choice you have faced before! Be warned!
  • I will be mega stressed at uni, too much work and no time to make friends. You will have loads of time to make friends, uni doesn’t take up too much of the day, and as long as you keep on top of the work load your should be able to get a fair number of days a week free from uni work.
  • I’m going to miss my boyfriend/girlfriend and family too much! You may within the first week but give it time and you will find that you are able to cope with living away from your family and friends back home. I would recommend strongly not bringing boyfriends/girlfriends or friends from home with you in Freshers’ week as you need to make new friends within your halls or house, and Freshers’ week is when everyone is trying to make friends, so its a much easier time to try than at any other time in the year.
