Visit the Students’ Union and ask what opportunities are available for students.

The acronyms used within Brookes: PIP, HKSC etc.

ISAS is always there to help.

If you have problems with your modules, contact your Academic Advisors.

You can get student discounts at different shops around Oxford. Get an NUS Extra card from the SU reception.

If you are between 16 and 25 years old, you are able to get a National Rail Card- you can a discount on travelling to different counties by train.

If you can’t understand what the lecturer is saying, you can always talk to PAL leaders who will help you with that module.

Psssst

Psssst…

You don’t have to buy all the books. You can find some of them online and others in the library.

Make sure you make back-up copies of all your work.

You may sign up for societies but make sure you don’t get too tied up with activities- also concentrate on your coursework.

Make sure you have a budget that you stick to.

Participate in group work and seminars

Don’t do things that you don’t want to do just because your friends are doing it.

Enjoy your time at Brookes!!!!
