Back to University Essentials…


So I am going back to university to study my masters. It has been a couple of years since I have been at university, but I am aware of things that I will need for my course that will help me.


1. Pens

For me I go through so many pens (mainly because I seem to be good at misplacing them), therefore it’s essential for me to have a lot of pens. Especially as you will be writing in lectures or just making notes all the time.


2. Notebooks

These are definitely recommended because you will need them in your lectures (unless you prefer to type on your laptop). I always buy about three to start off with. I love these college ones I got from WHSmiths because they have a timetable chart at the front inside cover. Always handy to fill in your current term timetable so you know where you are going haha.


3. Added extras

These are some extras that I personally like to have. Highlighters are great for me to go over my lecture notes and pinpoint bits that I feel are most important or to further research etc. In addition I’m a sucker for a post it note, don’t know why but I just love them. Lastly I always love to have a stapler as its just handy for me to keep my work all together. These extras are completely up to your personal preferences.

4. Map

If you are going to a university where you do not know the area I definitely recommend getting a map as soon as possible. I got lost so many times when I first went to university, and the map came in handy.

Also there might be other essentials that are specific to your course like; rulers, calculators, flasks for hot chocolates or teas etc which I have not mentioned. Every course is different but you should have a rough idea of what you will need for your specific course. Also there is other little bits which I have not mentioned here but I will consider as well.

Thanks for reading, good luck if you are heading off to university. What are you studying? Are there any essentials you love to have at university?
