With summer having begun for many university students and just around the corner for the rest, there are now 2-3 months ahead to spend however you wish. It is worth having a think about what it is you hope to get out of your summer break, so the time doesn’t just pass you by.
In my time before and during uni, I’ve used the Summer as a time to catch up on things you don’t always find the time for during term: getting work experience, travelling and relaxing. It is also sometimes necessary to get in a bit of study to keep your mind at work. I’ll go over each of these in turn to offer some ideas and tips for getting value out of your time off.
