Updated: Sep 10

As Freshers' week approaches, our Conscious team will share some of our own Freshers' stories. Freshers' week is exciting, but it's also a huge change for many of us! For some students, it's the first time they have lived alone or even made their dinner for themselves! It takes some time to get used to living alone whilst balancing your studies at the same time, but we, at Conscious, are committed to helping you through your new university life.
