So, September time is the beginning of the school year, but as we approach October it’s also the beginning of a brand new year at university. I wanted to write up something easy but insightful for anyone en route to their first year as I’ve had a few concerned LinkedIn messages now from worried incoming freshers. First thing I’ll make clear is that university could be one of the best times of your life – it definitely was for me. It just brings independence like you’ve never known, and delivers a lot of freedom to do whatever you want to really discover yourself. There are a few periods of my life where I feel like I’ve really just grown; for example I tweeted recently that I’ve never been taught the meaning of hard work as much as I have working in Investment Banking, I also know that I’ve grown a lot in my relationship. University is just another one of those times where you learn… a lot.
