So if that’s the way you’ve always wanted to do things, make the most of fresher freedom. If none of these tactics work, and your homesickness or depression is prolonged or feels like it’s getting worse, contact your university’s counselling or advice centre, which will be able to provide you with support.

They are organised and offered by universities and by other organisations such as educational trusts and charities. Most are restricted to students whose families have low incomes, for example students who are paying the maximum tuition fees (£3,225) and are receiving the maximum Maintenance Grant (£2,906) will be eligible to receive a bursary from their university. This is about £319 for the year, but can be a lot more – so ask your uni.
