Top Tips

Get covered this Freshers

Heading off to uni for the first time can be daunting, but with over 50 years’ experience in student insurance, the team at Endsleigh know a thing or two about surviving freshers’ week. Here are their top tips to make your first week at university a success.
  1. Take the plunge – As daunting as it may be, freshers’ week will involve meeting lots of new people, some of whom may end up being lifelong friends! Strike up a conversation in class, leave your room when you can hear people talking in the kitchen, or prop your door open to let people know they’re welcome to come in for a chat. Before too long, you’ll be laughing about being so nervous the first time you met!
  2. Look after yourself – This goes way beyond eating and sleeping. Freshers’ week can be a whirlwind of new faces and new experiences, so make sure to take some time to relax and recharge. If it’s all getting a bit much, the students’ union will have resources available to help make the transition to uni life a bit easier.
  3. Get organised – Getting stuck with a big bill or a broken phone is not the best way to enjoy freshers’ week, so get organised ahead of time! Check if your accommodation provider’s insurance covers your possessions at home, and make sure your gadgets are covered too. The average smartphone is worth £400, so don’t let one night ruin the fun with flexible protection options from Endsleigh.
