Going to University this September?  If so, we’re going to prepare you for the student lifestyle. Check out these 16 students you’ll run into during Freshers’ Week!

Most Uni’s and colleges have extremely diverse communities. You’ll be exposed to some strong personalities and discover many new cultures, beliefs and ways of life.

This is great, as you’ll get the chance to mingle with people you probably wouldn’t normally meet back at home; however, the shift in cultures and personalities may mean that making friends at University is a little tricky at first.

If only you knew the kind of students you’re likely to bump into…
