LOOKING FOR A STUDENT TO CONNECT WITH?
Meeting other students is always going to be interesting and useful whether it be to talk about your course, finding a job or just to network with and make some new friends. You might be surrounded by students on your course but would like to get to know senior students doing your course or students doing a similar course at other universities and colleges at home or abroad. This might be useful if you want to know what your course will be like the following year or you are thinking about being an exchange student at another institution. Perhaps you are not happy on your current course and want to change or transfer university and would like to contact students studying there to find out what it is like. Alternatively you might want to connect with postgraduate students who are doing a course that you are interested in and would like to know what their experience is of the course before you apply.
