Nail this academic year with A+ preparation

If at all possible, take some time over the summer to sit down with a detailed academic calendar and a calendar planner to plan out the next few months of your life. Whether you’re heading to university for the first time or again, let us help you get organized.

Step 1

Buy what you need before the semester starts

Just as you would at home, you should start preparing for university as soon as possible. If you’re going to start university in September, some things you should think about buying before you go are: a USB drive, a pair of headphones, notebooks, pens, and so on. Feel free to browse our list to find out all things that you need.

You should always make sure you have a back-up of all your important documents and information.

Step 2

Save money on university supplies

A few inexpensive ways to save money on university supplies include: buying single-use items in bulk, buying items from the dollar store, reusing old school supplies, using public service announcement (PSA) coupons, and using store coupons. If you’re interested in a particular course or subject, you might also consider looking into student discounts and scholarships.

If you’ve decided to bring everything to university with you, it’s a good idea to bring a large clear plastic bag with you to university to store everything in.


Want to know more?

Most students choose to buy their books online, but keep in mind that this is an expensive way to go. Buying books online can be good if you’re buying a large number of books or have a specific deadline to meet. Plus, you have the added benefits of being able to return a book at any time and having your books sent straight to you.

However, the better way to go would be to visit a local library, or look for second-hand books and textbooks before buying new books online.

While planning out your entire academic year, it’s also a good idea to think about how you’re going to manage your time. How are you going to fit everything you have to do into one year?

The main tip we can give you is to not underestimate the amount of time it takes to get a degree.
If you’re just a few credits short of graduating and have a deadline to meet, you should talk to a librarian or your head of department to see if there is any way they can help you out.

Before you head off to university, make a list of all the things you’re going to need for your new lifestyle. A notebook and pencils/pens are essential for every student and will likely be the first thing you purchase. Depending on the course you’re taking, you might also need a laptop, charger, books and maybe even a phone.

Stick to the plan

Now that you know more or less what to expect, it’s time you created your own university supply list. Feel free to use our template and add what you think should also be on the list, as well as take off anything that you wouldn’t otherwise buy.
