Over the next few weeks thousands of teenagers will be leaving home for the very first time as they start university.
For some it’s a truly daunting experience. So, with the help of ex BBC World boss, now Head of school at ScreenSpace (part of London’s MetFilm School), Dr Lisette Johnston, here’s a list of 11 things for students to consider before they head off on their next big adventure.
5. Remember to check in
