Adapting to new surroundings and locations can be tricky, and Endsleigh Student Insurance reveals some of the main reasons that students struggle to settle in quickly and easily. Unfortunately that does result in students dropping out of university, so why does this happen?
Losing valuable possessions
Students generally study away from home and with that comes some risk. Leaving home means taking prized possessions with to university and that could result to them disappearing, so be prepared by taking out a student insurance policy that will provide sufficient cover for your possessions should they go missing. Nothing is more disheartening than getting home only to find an empty room.
Too much too soon
Student life is fast paced, or rather, the social aspect of being a student is, and that is why it is vital to make some “me” time. Take a break from the busy schedule and spend a night at home every so often, rest up and return to classes refreshed and relaxed. Do things that encourage relaxing, so refrain from night after night of not getting proper sleep. Students ‘burn out’ all the time and it does cause quite a few students to drop out, but it can easily be avoided by taking some regular ‘me time’.
Lack of preparation
Whether it is exam time or just settling in, coping with stress is a vital part of surviving university and dealing with it effectively can make or, worst case scenario, break a university career. The way to make friends and connect with people is to continue doing things that spark personal interest, because likeminded people are more likely to get along.
By adhering to these guidelines settling into university shouldn’t be too difficult and avoiding dropping out should be. Remember that being precautious is important when it comes to protecting your belongings so a good student contents insurance policy could help provide some peace of mind, just in case something does go missing, at least it can be replaced!
