university student summer plans

Summer is fast approaching around the corner, with exams and coursework deadlines near in sight. The last thing you want to happen is to forget something important and spend your summer panicking trying to fix it. So here's a list of what you need to get sorted before summer.


1. University Course or Placement

For some university courses you may be required to choose what subjects you want to learn about in the following year. For example, if you are studying business management, you might get to choose between a focus on events and festival management or brand management. 

Usually this happens in your second and third year. This is when you decide where you want to focus your skills. So remember to check if you need to get this sorted, otherwise you could get stuck with courses that don't suit you. 


2. Summer Plans

Summer is a great time to unwind from university and make a ton of fun memories with friends, in new places. But this requires pre-planning. Before you hit those fun summer months, plan out what you want to do.

If your planning on travelling, this could mean sorting out your passport (is it in date?), booking up travel tickets and hotels, which you definitely want to book in advance so they don't sell out!


3. Student Storage

Over the summer months, most students have to leave their housing, whether this is a rented house or university halls. It makes sense since most students go back home for the summer or spend it travelling.

But this leaves the conundrum of what to do with your belongings. If you live in the UK you might decide to bring it all back home, but this can be a hassle. But if you live abroad this can be a bit trickier.

Don't worry though, Door2Door Student Storage has the solution! Instead of figuring a way to bring all your belongings home, only to then bring them back for the next university year, store them in student storage.

Then pack up your boxes, we will collect them, store them and then return them when you want. Easy!

This is something you definitely want to get sorted before summer! Student finance in the UK needs to be reapplied for each year. The deadline for this can vary, so be sure to double check when your student finance deadline is.


5. Student Housing

Finally, the last thing you need to figure out before summer is where you will be staying next year. You may decide your happy where your living right now and make arrangements to stay there next year. Or if your a first year student living in university halls, you may decide its time to move out to a student house with some friends.
