The Next Chapter: Finishing University


Despite all the advice from the previous third years and the lectures your tutors give you, I don't think anything can really prepare you for the inevitable time when you say goodbye to university life. Whilst studying at university the prospect of leaving is something that gives you daily excitement, but when you are finally met with the end and the door closes on the way out, a fear of dread suddenly strikes upon you. 

I am lucky that I have loved almost every moment of my course and met the most wonderful people that have made the last three years enjoyable at the University of Huddersfield. I always thought that I would be happy to see the back of university life, but when I handed in my university work for the final time on Friday, I suddenly went numb. My mind was full of emotions - what now? Where do I go? How the heck do I start looking for a job in my chosen career? But then, I was met with happiness, the warm feeling of accomplishing something you never thought you could and the anticipation for my future career.

What I have realised is that whilst I studied at university, it became less about the piece of paper that I receive at the end of my course, but more about how university shaped me and made me the person I am today. I am more confident, enthusiastic about my work and much more skilful. University has also given me the skills to progress with my blog and helped me believe in myself in times of struggle. I already have interviews lined up for jobs and the future is looking bright, I'm looking forward to the next chapter of my life and the new things I will have to write about here at Forevermissvanity.com.

Have you been to University before?

  2. It was actually 3 years ago today that I handed in the last of my university work and I felt exactly the same!

    Uni was such a safety blanket for me at times and all of a sudden I had to enter the real world and get a job, which meant I would have real life responsibilities! Part of me started to worry but the rest of me was so excited to see where my future would take me!

    Since then, I've got a job I love, I'm now studying for further qualifications through my work (which makes me realise how easy I had it at uni! Studying and working full time is a real challenge!) and I'm now living with my fiance as we plan our wedding!

    Life after uni is so different, but if nothing else, the life lessons you learnt while you were there will shape the way you live the rest of your life! Make the most of the options available to you now hun, I wish you the best of luck!

  3. It is definitely hard to leave the school years and jump into 'real life.' Honestly, it took me a while to get settled and start to define my path. I wish you all the best with this new chapter!
