Your summer holiday is here, Hooray! Don’t fall down the rabbit hole of Pj days and eating pizza in bed at 10am. Don’t sit there scrolling through your Instagram feed and looking at your friend’s ‘amazing summer’. Take a look at these tips to help your summer become more meaningful and fun.
Before you know it, it will be September and all you will have to show for your time off is that you made your way through three entire series on Netflix.
Find A Summer Job – Many companies will offer student contract jobs just for working with them during the holidays. You could mix it up by working a part time paid job and also volunteering. It will look great on future CV’s.
If you can find something relevant to the University course you are studying then go for it. It could bring up some amazing opportunities for you, especially if you manage to impress your employer.
Go Travelling – Not only is traveling amazing fun, it can also teach you new skills and educate you without you even realising it. You could even try a working holiday.
Study – I know, it’s summer, who would want to study whilst supposedly being study free BUT if you are going into your final year particularly then you may want to reap the benefits of being extra organised during these weeks. Just doing a little each week will make a huge difference and impact your final year in a positive way.
Prepare – If you are going into your first year of University then summer is your time to prepare. Packing your life up, buying all your new bits and bobs and preparing to move to a new city. Have everything packed and ready well before you are due to move so you still have time to have fun and maybe attend that Festival you wanted to go to.

Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
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.
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 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.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
