The 8 Emotional Stages of Going Back To Uni After Christmas

Being at home for almost a month over Christmas is a luxury. You go back to your doting parents in a house where the cupboards are filled with food and it’s just like being a child again. So much so that it’s easy to forget what is looming when you go back to your student life in January…

Here are the stages all students go through when they finally get back to uni after Christmas:

1. Excitement.

You and your friends will finally get the chance to catch up on all the gossip from home and enjoy being independent again.

4. Regret.

By this point, late nights spent cramming in the library are the only way you’ll stand a chance.
