Student panel: Question time

Yes you can

Join mature student, Louise Usher and Academic Support Librarian, Ros Smith as they talk to a panel of current and recently graduated students about their start at university.

When we speak to students about their start at uni, they often tell us that although they feel happy and excited, they also feel anxious and nervous about what they will find. 

This is your chance to ask your own questions and hear the views of past students on how to prepare for your start at uni and what you should do to ensure you get a good start.
