Five tips for getting your business studies off to a flying start
If this your first taste of university life, then you may not know exactly what to expect. To help our business studies freshers get off on the right foot, we asked former students for their tips – they should help you make a good start:
Attend the introductory events.
You’ll find all the important information there, plus you’ll get to know your fellow students and make your first friendships. Don’t be intimidated: everyone feels the same at first.
Manage your time.
The first few weeks fly by and everything seems relaxed. But appearances are deceptive: precisely because time flies, it’s soon time for the first tests and coursework. Stay up-to-date and keep reading the required reading material; write summaries and keep an eye on your time management.
