[00:00:03] Olivia Hey, guys, my name is Olivia, and today we're going to talk about how to make the most of your university experience.

[00:00:14] Olivia Make sure you're part of the uni community, whether you join groups or societies or just being active in your course or making friends at the Students' Union. There's so many ways that you can get involved. So personally, I just tried to throw myself into things and I've made some really good lifelong friends here at university so make sure you're just talking to people and getting involved.

[00:00:37] Olivia So on my course, I've had access to so many amazing opportunities and opportunities to travel and to see things I might have not done before. And recently I've been involved in Fashion Week, which has been an amazing opportunity for me personally. So make sure you're getting yourself involved. After all, you're here for three years then is a great experience.
