Your final year of university is the year you need to get your head down and work your butt off. It will no doubt be exhausting, stressful and maybe even a little bit emotional. We have some top tips to help you make it through as stress-free as possible.
– Organise Yourself
Don’t just organise your studying timetable. Organisation for stress-free living needs to be much more than that.
* An easily accessible calendar will be the key to your organisation success. Put EVERYTHING on it. Any plans you have, doctors appointments, food shopping, socialising, workouts, and even meal times.
This way you can see where your studying fits in and prioritise what is important.
– Healthy Eating
Yes, we know, it may sound boring especially when all you want is to pick up a dirty burger or get something delivered directly to your door BUT eat rubbish, feel rubbish.
Junk food makes us feel sluggish and tired and healthy foods make us feel good and make our bodies function to the best of their abilities.
It’s a no-brainer.
Water, water, water!
Of course, you are going to drink other things other than water and you will probably have alcohol when you socialise. Socialising is good for you so don’t think you can’t join your pals for a couple of beers. It will more than likely be a welcome break from studying.
When you aren’t socialising in that type of environment though, drink water. It has ALL the benefits you need in life.
1. Increases energy and relieves fatigue.
2. Natural headache remedy.
3. Flushes out toxins.
4. Boosts immune system.
5. Aids digestion.
6. Improves complexion.
You can’t study for hours on end and practice your best work without study breaks.
Take half an hour to get a bite to eat and a cuppa or take a day trip. Any type of break will mean you can come back to it with fresh eyes and possibly a little more concentration and enthusiasm than before.

I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
I loved it there !
Brickworks is a great home for whoever comes to live in Dublin for a while.
The friendliness of the staff along with the welcoming environment make for a great place to live. When I first entered the room, it felt like a hotel room : comfortable, modern and very liveable.
The neighborhood is as calm as it gets and you get to the most animated streets in 15mn.
The sunset view on the rooftop is the cherry on the cake.
Excelente ubicacion, atencion y servicio. Muy cuidado todo, las recepcionistas siempre ayudando y dando atencion. Lo recomiendo.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
