Now that I’ve finished up my final year at UTS, here are my five tips for making the most out of your time here:
1. Find a degree that you love or are passionate about
If you do this, you will never study a day in your life again – there is a constant drive to continually learn, develop and grow your knowledge and skills and that initiative opens so many doors that you never thought possible!
2. Take on as many opportunities that you can
University is a unique time of your life, it creates unique opportunities that can shape your personality and your future career. You never know what something can potentially lead to if you don’t jump in and try!
3. Meet new friends
University is the perfect time to meet like-minded individuals who share the same interests and career goals as you do. Having a social group is very beneficial when it comes to study sessions as everyone wants to make sure that you all get the most out of your university experience. You might find some life-long friends on the way.
4. Build your future career pathways from the ground up
University isn’t not only about the study. You’re surrounded by a wealth of support services who want to make you are prepared for all challenges ahead of you. By taking up consultations, like how to build your resume or mock interviews, you’ll have the best opportunity to network with industry professionals and draw out your unique career path while being able to study at the same time.
5. Just have fun
You’re at a time of your life in which you will more than likely never get to experience again. Study what you’re passionate about, meet a range of new and interesting people, and make the most of your time on campus. These are the special years that will shape your personal and future career identity!
