Having worked with many thousands of students at – and beyond – many colleges and universities both in the UK and internationally, I have seen firsthand many of the most common problems students experience and have also been involved in solving them, so I I feel I can provide some commentary here.
Therefore, in this article I will now try to provide you with guidance on some of the areas where the most common problems have arisen for students studying in college and/or university and how these problems can be solved. This is because it is an unavoidable fact that studying in college or university in modern times can be both a daunting and enjoyable time in your life which has only been exacerbated by the current economic problems of the world which are being experienced internationally in almost every country .
As a result, it is perhaps no wonder that money and financial matters are a central concern for students. This is because nearly all students are consistently underfunded and must find ways to finance housing, food and, of course, their entertainment. Therefore, it cannot be overstated that now more than ever students are looking to work within a budget and plan what you will do with your money throughout the entire academic year – you may even find that getting some part-time work will help , then go to your college or university’s employment office and see what they can offer you.
Another common problem: Those of us who experience the dreaded “Compensation System” will know how bad it can be! – is with getting the course you want in the first place at the college or university of your choice. You need to understand that the more popular your course is with students like you, the more difficult and competitive you will find it to get a place studying that subject. Therefore, you must try to make your own decisions and enroll in the course you wish to have a place in as quickly as possible in order to have better chances AND also try to have a reserve second choice subject or institution in mind where you may run into problems.
You also need to ensure that you have time to work AND study both during the course and as part of your homework – these problems are only further exacerbated when you need to work to make ends meet. Consequently, this often means studying a lot in a short period of time. You can help yourself by planning your time carefully so that you have time to go to class, study AND work so that you can meet all your deadlines both in your personal and academic life so that you can get the results you are looking for
Classes can also be difficult in practice where the arrogance or conceit of your teachers/professors affects a student’s professional relationship with their professor or their actual grades. As a result, unfortunately, at worst there’s often a need to bite your tongue and do some big-time “sucking” in order to maintain a good working relationship that allows you to get the results you need. Of course there are many, many great teachers who will go out of their way to help you in any way they can, but there are also others who have been tainted by the profession and don’t have as much fun as they once did.
Now let’s move on to another significant problem: drugs and alcohol.
The sad reality is that, in college and/or university, despite efforts by the institution’s administration to limit their availability, drugs and alcohol are also as common a problem as they are anywhere. Matters aren’t helped either by the fact that because college and university students are adults, they often take full advantage of them at the expense of their studies, social life, and health. Therefore, you must try to avoid temptation because students died from drug overdose or alcohol poisoning, so you must get help as soon as possible where you think you need it as the consequences can be dire.
Likewise, you need to be aware of the dreaded hormones as well. . .
This is because while colleges and universities (as well as high schools) do their best to raise awareness of the potential for the spread of STDs/STDs (STDs/STIs) and unwanted pregnancies, the responsibility falls on the individual . Therefore, the simplest advice I can give you is to take precautions (e.g. condom, pill, etc…) and, if there aren’t any, simply DON’T do it!!
