How to enhance your student experience regardless of where you’re studying

It is often said that your university years are some of the best years of your life, and it’s easy to see why. You can come and go as you please - there are no parents around to tell you what to do and when to do it. 

While many argue that university is simply an opportunity for teeangers to party and have fun with new friends, alongside their learning of course, it actually has the potential to be far more than that. What a student makes of their time on-campus is their choice.
