“I know that this time in your life may be full of questions and uncertainties. Is university the right choice for me? Should I live at home or move away? How do I manage studying on top of day-to-day living? What support am I entitled to? Will my flatmates understand my situation? And, most importantly, how on Earth do I fit all these pyjamas into just one drawer?”

★★★★★ – “The most comprehensive guide available – covers everything from applying to getting through the course to saving energy on cooking and cleaning. It touched upon many aspects of the process that I had not even considered. I know that I’ll come back to this book many times during my degree. Strongly recommended to any chronically ill person who is applying to uni or already there.” – Sophie, Goodreads Review
