Back to Uni? How to Cope With COVID-19 and Venturing Out On Your Own

Covid-19 has drastically impacted the educational industry for millions of university students around the world. Starting university or a new university year is an exciting new chapter for many, however it has now become a nervous and unsettling time for those who have moved away to begin their new educational year.

Dealing with these drastic changes can be challenging, but there are many ways to help you cope. Take a look at our top tips to help you deal with the pandemic and venture out on your own.

Keep in Contact with Your Close Ones at Home

It’s important to keep in regular contact with your loved ones at home; this can be a family member, a close friend, or both. Talking to someone who knows you will help you overcome your worries and doubts. They may even be going through the same situation you are, so being there for one another can really make a difference.

Keep Active

Isolating yourself will make your feelings more intense. Keeping active is a great way to relief stress and takes your mind away from any worries. This can be anything from a daily walk, run, home workout or gym sessions. This is also a good way to meet new friends who enjoy keeping active.

A few minutes a day can help you stay positive which can have a positive impact on your mood and your confidence.

Get Ahead with Your Research

This is the perfect opportunity for you to get ahead with your research to help you succeed within your course. You can find new and creative ways to develop your learning skills and understand what you need to do to achieve success this year.

This self-discipline will pay off greatly in the future, as you used the extra time to develop your educational needs.

Explore Your Surroundings

If you’re in a new city, take this time to explore the unfamiliar surroundings to increase your confidence and make you feel more at home. Go for walks, do some sightseeing, or just get to grips with what’s available on your uni campus. You’re only around for a few years, now is the perfect time to make the most of it.
