Your First Week on a New Course – How to Survive!

Last updated September 15th, 2017

Starting a new full-time course can be an exciting, but daunting time! The first week particularly is the one where emotions and demands come fast, furious and full-on and can leave you struggling to survive. So, now’s the time to consider how to get through it all across three areas of student life which have a big ‘first-week’ impact – the environmental, social and academic sides of studying a new course …

1. Environmental essentials

The chances are you’re not just settling into the course, you’re also settling into new accommodation away from home, so you might appreciate a little advice for not only making the most of this new environment, but also enjoying it:

2. Socially speaking

New students have lots to say about the social side of settling into a new course, because having a strong social network can make a difference to how you settle … and study!

3. Academic Advice

Ultimately you’re there to study. Achieving a balance which allows you to study and rest effectively. can require a bit of juggling to start with, but Event Academy alumni who’ve survived the rigours of study advise …

And finally, our alumni have all been where you are now and, along with our lecturers, can share a golden rule for the first weeks: get used to doing things as you go, to save you time and stress later in the term! Seriously, sorting it now rather than later is a way of using your time wisely, which will really help that first week in your new course – and beyond!
