Starting Uni tomorrow,

 

Couldn't wait to start the Foundation Degree and now it is here. I AM NOT SO SURE!!!!

 

The thought of writing essay's, deadlines and coping with the workload scares me to death. I need to learn how to do grown up writing too

 

Any advice would be very helpful

Kate, I felt like that, too!

 

On Thursday, I'll be starting my 3rd year of my FD :o

 

Don't know where the time went and I've really enjoyed it - lots of support from Uni with study skills and loads of help, support, advice and cheerleading from all the lovely peeps on here :(

 

The only advice I can offer is to do the work as it is set to avoid last minute panic ( xD do as I say, not as I do!!) and always keep some reading with you. I've read in the car waiting outside school for my daughter, Dr's waiting room, while the babies are asleep (I'm a childminder).... any spare moment!

 

Good Luck, let us know how you get on.

Hi katehart

 

Im just about to start my second year so i kno how you feel and understand those nerves. My best advice would be to take each week as it comes- attend every lecture/session, and read read read. Take each essay as it comes too and dont stress about what everyone else is doing!! good luck luv

I managed to get through my first day and really loved it. I did toss and turn last night and felt really sick this morning, but i still enjoyed uni very much. I even went to the library and had a good look at what books were available. Had a nice cup of coffee and soaked up the uni life.

 

Only one thing i am 40 years old and have two lovely children, so no night life for me.

 

thanks Kate

  • 4 weeks later...

I am also beginning my second year and I can truthfully say that I felt the same going in to begin year 2 as i felt beginning year 1..nervous...will i cope...how will i cope.... BUT I got through year 1 !!! so once I told myself that I calmed down.

 

I am also a childminder and there have been times when this has been a great advantage to me, so good luck Kate and use all resources available even here, I do xxxxx

It's hard work, but worth it in the end!

 

Over the past 4 years I've done the FD, then the BA, then the GTP, now an NQT in a reception class.

 

I loved my days out at uni, getting together with my 'uni pals', looking back on it, I think the social side outweighed the workload. My advice is to create a group email with your uni colleagues so you can keep in contact about assignments etc.. this was a lifeline for me, especially when I was feeling overloaded...it was nice to know I wasn't the only one!

Thank you !!!!

 

I am now into my 4th week at uni and I have to write a benchmark statement that has to be in on Tuesday and only just started it. Word court 750 words that not bad, is it? I haven't written a essay for years, so a little out of practise.

 

It has been a little difficult, because I was already doing a 6 weeks City and Guilds course (families going forward), for work, which is run by CWDC. The course and Uni crossed over, which wasn't what I wanted, but I had to do the course.

 

It had involved a lot of work and I could only focus on one at a time and the course finishes this coming week thank goodness. As soon as I hand in my portfolio, I will feel much happier,

 

I did enjoy the course very much and learnt a lot and some of the work I did for the course will come in very useful for Uni.

 

Good luck everyone in your studies
