If you’re off to Cardiff university for the first time or you’re heading back after the summer break, you’re probably equal parts excited and nervous. Each year at university brings something different and you rarely know what to expect. However, there are ways to keep the stress levels down and the fun levels up. Here are six things that will make your student life in Cardiff better:
- Choose accommodation that has everything you need
There’s no better way to keep yourself happy as a student in Cardiff than by finding somewhere to live that you really, really like. Having a great base to head back to after a long day of lectures is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face. Everyone is different and it’s important to find student accommodation that suits your needs. Fusion Students have taken the time to create accommodation that ticks every box; there’s even a gym, party room and cinema room!
- Save money wherever possible
One of the biggest stresses of student life in Cardiff stems from money worries. It can be easy to overspend and waste your student loan; though this may seem like a good idea at the time, it’ll result in more stress for you. Take advantage of meal deals, student drinks prices and BOGOF deals in the local supermarket.
- Take the time to explore the city
Cardiff is a beautiful city and it’s a popular tourist destination, so take the time to explore what’s on offer. As a student you’re sure to have a little bit more free time than most, so head to tourist attractions and cultural hotspots during the week to avoid the crowds.
- Exercise your stresses away
Though university life is mainly fun and games, there are some stresses that come along with it. Any time you feel stressed, head out for a walk or take the time to exercise. Exercise is known to reduce stress levels and it can help you to focus on assignments. Fusion Students’ accommodation in Cardiff has a gym onsite, so you don’t even need to go outside – perfect!
- Invite friends and family to visit
If you have friends and family that are wanting to visit you at university, invite them! Showing others around Cardiff and letting them see elements of your student life is a good way to appreciate just how great it is. Plus, it’s the perfect way to show off some of your favourite local spots.
- Get a fun group of friends
If there’s one thing that’s great about Cardiff is that it’s the ideal place to make friends. Many people make friends for life at university, so be sure to put the time and energy into finding a group you enjoy spending time with. Fusion Students’ accommodation has a party room and games tables, both of which are the ideal places to get chatting to someone new.
