Don't forget to keep in touch with friends and family!

Even though you may have moved away, if there are people at home that you've been able to rely on in the past, it is important to keep in touch with them now.

It is easy in the excitement of the first few weeks to lose contact with your family and friends but if you encounter difficulties later in the year you may still need their support. Keeping in touch every now and then will keep those lines of communication open, will reassure them that you are doing well and you will know about any changes that are happening at home.

You may want to agree before you leave home how often you will speak to family and friends by phone, email or via social media etc. then try to stick to this during the term.
