Once your exams have finished you’ll be looking forward to the start of September when you can share a new house with your closest friends. It’s going to be an exciting time and you’re sure to have lots of fun, but before you all go home for the summer, it’s best if you decide o
Perhaps after exams you’re hoping to earn a little bit of extra cash over the summer holidays to boost your savings... maybe you’re thinking about bar work or a shop job... or you could join our student team here at Accommodation for Students!
Right in the horizon after all of those exams are the summer holidays... three long, lazy months – how are you going to fill your time? You feel like after sitting all of your exams, you should congratulate yourself on all your hard work/commiserate the bad grades you’re certain

Poor housing is one of the biggest stress triggers for students living away from home for the first time, according to groups helping depressed students.

Work experience: like it or lump it, you pretty much need it. We’re living and learning in a day and age where a university degree is just not enough. The competition is fierce, with thousands of students nationally graduating with the exact same qualifications as you. How are yo
Failing an exam has to be one of the worst feelings ever. You put your heart and soul into something and it turns out you just missed the mark. Alternatively, you didn’t study hard enough in which case it’s your own fault! We’re human beings after all, we’re genetically programme
Back in last summer, it all seemed so rosy. You and your mates had signed the rental agreement for your very own house. No more living in halls with random people imposed upon you by the university accommodation department.

1. Bring water, and lots of it! Dehydration can cause fatigue, and you'll want all the energy you can get.
2. Gather everything you need first. That way when you sit down to start work, you won't keep interrupting yourself to find another vitally important book.
3. Take healthy
Revision sucks. There’s absolutely no two ways about it. It is an obstacle you cannot avoid, and university exams boil, simply, down to this: if you don’t revise, you won’t do well. It really is that simple. However, revision itself is a slightly ambiguous beast and though we are
