1) Try and get a part-time job.
The word ‘try’ must be emphasized as it is very difficult to find a place willing to employ workers for the summer and the summer only. From first-hand experience, I can say that it will take a lot of perseverance and will be very time consuming to find a summer job but it is possible! It is also perfect because with a part-time job you have the joys of pay day without having to work every single day so you, in fact, have time to enjoy the money that you are earning!
2) Find a new hobby/interest
This one is perfect for those University students with a lot of spare time on their hands. There are many hobbies that you can do such as joining the gym or reading/writing a book. You could even learn a new instrument or write a few songs! Similarly, with finding a new job it will take perseverance but will be worth it in the long run! Imagine that, going back to University and seeing all of your other fellow students and them asking you ‘So, what did you do with your summer?’ and not only can you tell them but you can show them!
3) Prepare for your next year at University
No matter what you are studying there is always a way that you can prepare yourself for the next year. Here are some examples…
If you are studying English you can write Articles or your own blog!
If you are studying Business you can run your own small business or even research into bigger businesses to see how it’s done!
If you are studying anything science-based you can widen your knowledge by looking at science videos or reading up on your subject online!
4) Spend time with friends and family
One thing you miss the most when at University will be your close friends and family. So don’t have any regrets, make sure you go out and make as many summer memories with them as possible! Also, when you are with your friends and family try and make sure you make the most of the sun. By being British I pretty much mean head down to your nearest beer garden, order a fruit cider, and say over and over again how ‘It’s well hot’.
5) Go to every single Fat Poppadaddys event!
