Keeping track of time
Attending lectures and seminars, submitting essays and being on time to social gatherings – they’ll all require your son or daughter to have effective time management skills. Being punctual and organised is often one of the things new students struggle with the most.
Studying at university is very
different to secondary school and
college. Students will need to be
motivated to study the books on
their reading list and undertake
their own research on module
content. Making your son
or daughter aware of this will
make the transition
a lot smoother.
It’s important that your child is able to stay on
top of finances while at university. You should
encourage them to work out a weekly or monthly
budget – and stick to it! When your son or
daughter is choosing a student bank account they
should look out for offers such as free railcards.
