The Uncensored Student (working title)
With university fees rising and degree certificates devaluing, young people are questioning more and more whether to go to university or not. This is a book for prospective students (and their parents), with the aim to transparently explore the experiences of university life. Topics range from initial decisions about whether to go to university or not, to housing & dealing with landlords, to gender issues, to mental health and post-uni life.
This will be the first comprehensive book in the UK written for to-be-students to get a feel for what’s in store.
A platform for students in the UK and life-long learners all over the world. Our mission is to make University accessible to everyone, through sharing quality advice written by students, for students.
