“Student life” is often seen as going out, partying, making lifelong friends and going to the occasional lecture.
However, with all the contestant additional societal and familial pressures along with a huge change of environment, it’s clear this is having a huge effect on our students.
Education is progressive, that’s why students don’t look back from year 10 to year 7 and recall what they learnt.
This progressive nature slowly adds to the complexities of the classes but as students’ progress through education, life also adds responsibility and the stresses that come along with that.
Then…university. You are thrusted into an unknown environment, the hardest classes you have yet to experience, the pressure to quickly establish relationships, join respective societies and begin budgeting through financial restrictions.
It’s the biggest change faced to date with minimal or no prior preparation. This needs to change.
