So you have finally finished university and the world seems to be your oyster! So, what’s the next step? First of all congratulations to all graduates it is a great achievement and not a easy feat at all! I got a few friends to share their experiences and thoughts on life after school, to offer some perspective and encouragement to those in a state of confusion about their next steps and for those who are in eager anticipation of achieving this amazing accomplishment. Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing their replies.
Psychology, University of Leicester
1. What were your expectations for life after university?
My expectations was to get relevant work experience that would help me continue with my development. Also to go out and live life to the fullest as uni was the last ‘necessary’ education. So I felt I am now free to do, explore and live to my desires
2. Were those expectations met?
3. What would be your advice for those in their final year looking forward to life after school?
4. What is one thing you wish you knew when you were in your final year in order to better prepare you for life after school?
You can feel lost in not knowing what the next stage is. Not everyone is sure, there is no more structure to follow. Take you time, find your own structure and direction because only then will you fully commit to it.
Huge thanks to Peter for sharing his knowledge and experiences.
