7 thoughts students have when they finish uni for the year

After all the late night study sessions and worries of how to stretch your shopping budget beyond pot noodles, this is it: university is over and you are finally free to enjoy your summer holidays! 

Yet while many will be glad to leave their academic commitments behind, there’s a good majority who will miss their social life. Here’s a roundup of the most common thoughts students will have during their summer break:

1.      I can get up and go to bed whenever I want. To be fair, several students probably did this regardless – but knowing they have no lectures to attend, will definitely be feeling a lot less guilty.

2.      I have SO much free time. With no timetable in place, you’re free to do whatever you want, whenever you want! Within reason of course.

3.      I have TOO much free time. Once the novelty of having all this free time to yourself wears off, it can be slightly strange going from a packed university schedule to a lazy summer break.

4.      I can take a long holiday. While for many students the idea of a long summer may feel like an extended holiday, some prefer to take the opportunity of this long break to go abroad. Especially once students get a full-time job, they’ll be hard-pressed to find an employer who will allow them to enjoy two months’ worth of annual leave.

5.      I have no money. But in order to enjoy said holiday, you’ll need to find a way of saving up for it. If you’re lucky, maybe the bank of mum and dad will help you out but if not…   

6.      I need to get a job. If the thought of surviving on pot noodles is enough to give you nightmares, then use the summer to find a job so you can save up for the essentials when you go back to university. OK, so it might dent your plans of having a free schedule, but a free schedule is not going to pay for your food and university nights out (and maybe a holiday if you have some spare cash).

7.      I am going to eat better and exercise more. If you’re back home, then take this chance to stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables. You can’t beat home-cooked food, plus you can kill two birds with one stone going spending quality time with your parents and enjoy family walks together.
