16. And of course, realising graduate life really isn’t that far away.

18 Stranger Things Reactions You’ll Recognise If You’ve Been To University


Your eating habits can be likened to Eleven’s and trying to meet your deadlines feels like trying to kill a Demogorgon. Sometimes, uni feels like an episode of Stranger Things.

7. Mostly because nights out at university get a little… crazy.

15. You start to question whether you’re really doing the right degree for you.


16. Or whether you want to continue pursuing a degree at all.

The 22 Stages Of Writing An Essay, As Told By ‘Bake Off’


Being a contestant on The Great British Bake Off and trying to write an essay at university are more similar than you think. In fact, the stress of trying to meet your deadline can be likened to that of a technical challenge. *contestants gasp and groan*

1. You begin the only way a student ever could: by convincing yourself that you don’t need to start just yet.

Image result for bake off gif

2. You’re not here to listen to anyone who brags that they’ve already finished theirs.

3. But then, as if in the blink of an eye, the deadline is suddenly only a few days away and panic inevitably ensues.

4. You thought you’d be fine because you thought this one would be easy.

Image result for bake off gif

5. But you were so wrong.

6. It takes you an entire day just to write a plan.

7. And you’re just running out of time so quickly.

via giphy.com

8. So you make a start…

Image result for no context bake off

9. But every time you try to focus you get distracted very quickly.


10. So you venture to the library for some inspiration.

Image result for bake off gif

11. But you can’t find any of the books you need…

12. And you quickly get annoyed with every single person in there.


13. You begin to question whether you’re really cut out for university at all.

14. Eventually, you resort to an all-nighter to get shit done.

15. Which then results in you forgetting how to function around early morning.

via tumblr.com

16. By the time you’ve finished the essay, you’re too exhausted to feel happiness.

via tumblr.com

17. Probably because you plagiarised a little bit, too…

via tumblr.com

18. Just when you feel relief starting to set in, you realise you still need to do your referencing.

via tumblr.com

19. You quickly read through the essay, only to realise it doesn’t actually make any sense.

via giphy.com

20. But you submit it anyway, because there’s no going back now.

via tumblr.com

21. You promise yourself you’ll never leave an essay to the last minute ever again…

22. But deep down, you know that’s a lie.

4 Ways To Find Accommodation In A New City

accommodation in a new city

Moving to a new city can be both exciting and frightening at the same time. A new culture, a new language, a new environment; it’s something to look forward to.

Before you finish up your packing and say your final, tear-inducing goodbyes to your family and friends; you’ll need to sought out a place to live in your new city. It’s certainly no secret that finding accommodation in a brand new, unfamiliar city is no easy task; but, trust us on this, the whole process doesn’t have to be quite as scary as it sounds.

In an attempt to help keep your stresses at bay and help you relax in preparation for your big move abroad, we’re listing a few ways you can find accommodation in a new city.

1. Make a list of what you want.

Image result for make a list gif

Before you get started, it’s a good idea figuring out what it is you actually want in terms of accommodation in your new city. Ideally, what do you want it to look like? Would you prefer a room in a shared apartment? Would you prefer a central location, or do you like the idea of living on the outskirts? How much are you willing to pay each month? Answer these questions and you’ll help to narrow down your own search process.

2. Look online.

Image result for search online gif

Doing a simple Google search for “rent in X city” will, undoubtedly, bring up a plethora of options for you to choose from. You can also try to look for niche Facebook groups with rent offers in your new city, as they could be listed here before anywhere else online. When searching for accommodation online, always be sure to look for credible offers complete with photos, as they will help you gauge an overall idea and feel of the place.

3. Talk to people who have lived or live there.

Image result for i have questions gif

Talking to people who have lived, or already live, in your destination city is the best way to find accommodation. They will be able to tell, from their own personal experiences, the best locations to live, where will be more budget-friendly, etc. They may even have friends who are looking for tenants, and you might just fit the bill perfectly. Get talking!

4. Choose the easy way.

Image result for this is great gif

UniPlaces helps students around the world find accommodation without having to put too much effort in; and it’s simple. All you have to do is think about your ideal accommodation, give it a quick search and adapt the filters to your liking. Then, simply request and book a place! One of the main advantages of using the platform is the fact you can begin renting your place before you even arrive in your new city. That’s one less thing to worry about!

Student Entrepreneur: How To Balance School and Business


Universities and colleges are a hotbed of innovation, so it’s no surprise that students are starting up their own businesses from their dorm rooms. If you’re a business owner and a student, you’ll know that it can be difficult balancing all of your responsibilities. Here’s how you can run your business and keep up your grades at the same time.

Pick the right classes.

Firstly, it’s a good idea to pick classes that can help you. “I took classes in creative writing and business management,” says Paper Fellows founder, Daniel Peterson. “These helped me improve my business and writing skills, and I could even use some of my business projects for credits in class.” Take care in picking your classes, and be mindful of how much time you have to dedicate to both school and work.

Know how you work best.

Before you even think of making a schedule, you’ll need to know what conditions you need to work in. For example, do you work better in a crowded library, or the calm of your own dorm room? Are you an early riser or a night owl? Find out when and where you’re at your most productive, and use that information to your advantage. You can use your productive times to tackle work emails or assignments, so you get more done.

Get ahead.

Most students will leave an assignment ’til the last minute. That may work for them, but you have a business to run, too. Get ahead of yourself whenever you can. When you get assignments, get them done early, or make a part of it every day. Don’t forget to proofread it using Academized or another proof-reading service so you can be sure you’re not up against the deadline. This gives you space to breathe when you need it most.

Create a schedule.

All of the best entrepreneurs use a schedule, and you can too. You’ve already got a structure, as you have classes that you have to attend. Make sure you’re striking a good work/life balance by scheduling in time to eat, relax and socialise. This way, you’re ensuring that you know what you’re supposed to be doing, when you’re doing it. This will help you get your day organised, and you’ll find that you can actually get a lot more done.

Use the tools available to you.

At college, there’s a lot out there that can actually help you strike a balance between work and study. Talk to the student support teams at your school, as they can give you a lot of advice on how to get help. Use school resources while you can too, especially in the library. There’s also plenty of online tools that can help with both school and work. State of Writing, for example, has writing guides that can help you with any writing task.

Make lists and stick to them.

It’s always a good idea to have a daily plan of attack. Write lists every morning and create a plan for the day. Nothing is more satisfying than ticking items off as you complete them, and it helps to ensure that you’re not forgetting anything. When you make these lists, identify your most important tasks. Ensure you do them first every day, so you can keep them on track and on top of what you have to do.

These tips will help you to find that perfect work/study balance whilst at university. Make money and keep your grades up at the same time, without burning out, or worse, having to drop out. These tips show you that it really can be done. See for yourself!

7 Inventive Ways To Travel And Make Money As A Student


We all have that friend who is going travelling and has a seemingly unlimited bank account to fund an epic year of sun and sea, with no real need to pick up a grotty bar job in the Philippines. If you aren’t that friend and are sweating about how you will keep your finances up whilst globetrotting, here is a list of fun ways to earn money whilst on the road.

1. Camp America

If you are looking for an all round experience, you simply can’t go wrong with Camp America. Once you have applied, the placement process is really hassle free. Many of the schemes include flights and visa applications, you get paid between $600 and $1200 for the summer on top of included meals and accommodation, and once you have finished, your visa is valid for 30 days further travel in the States.


Getting qualified as a TEFL instructor before travelling can secure you work across the world. Being able to teach English as a foreign language is an invaluable skill to have whilst travelling. It is not enough to be a native speaker, having the proper qualification to back it up will secure work in almost any country. The qualifications are reasonably priced and not too taxing to complete. Once you are qualified, you can prearrange teaching spells throughout your travels or just see what is available when you arrive. Be sure to check out this page for TEFL discounts and bonuses.

3. Become a model

Hear us out, for this is not as far-fetched as it sounds. There are big opportunities in the Asian market for those with European or Western looks to model. Don’t believe us? Read the Balance’s blog. No previous experience necessary and no need to be 5’10.

4. Fruit picking

An oldie but goodie; picking fruit has always been a sure-fire way for broke travellers to earn their keep abroad. There are recognised schemes and sites that you can prearrange work with. Picking Jobs is a good place to start as it lets you search by country and pairs farmers and pickers directly. It is also worthwhile keeping an eye on noticeboards and local papers whilst travelling to see if anything is available.

5. Become a scuba diving instructor

If like many before you, you plan on starting your travels in Thailand then make sure you hit the islands. Koh Phi Phi and Koh Sumi are not only some of the most amazing places to dive in the world but some of the cheapest places to become PADI qualified. Factor in a one to two week stay around this area of Thailand and get qualified, then when you move on to other places like Bali, Fiji or even Oz you can get a job working at a diving school developing your skills.

6. Work on a cruise ship

Working on a cruise ship is good way to combine travelling and earning potential. If you aren’t too bothered what you do or where you go, a cruise might be the perfect option for you. There are so many roles to chose from, if you already have skills see if you can put them to use, if not opt for a porters role or something simple to get yourself on board. All Cruise Jobs has an exhaustive list of positions and cruise operators to chose from, if you can’t find something on here you probably aren’t the cruise ship type. The best thing about a cruise is all travel, accommodation and often meals are included.

7. Teach an Exercise Class

Fancy yourself as a yogi? Get in some training before you go travelling and set up shop in each location you visit. Other travellers love to take part in fitness and wellness classes and the market is huge. If you can secure just one or two classes a week that can be enough to cover your food expenses without dipping into your travel funds.

Off travelling or off on a year abroad?
