Are you about to start your studies or are you about to start a new semester? Then there is a lot for you to do now. As soon as you have made your choice of study, you have to deal with the topics of housing, finances, insurance and much more. It’s easy to lose track of everything. With the following tips, you will be on the safe side and can look forward to a relaxed start to your studies or the new semester. We have also summarized the most important questions for the start of a new semester.
Think early enough about how your daily routes will look like in your university life. If the university or university of applied sciences is further away, you will have to think about how to get there. You should plan for possible consequences such as a move in good time. If you are commuting between the university and your current place of residence, find out what public transportation is available. The following points are particularly relevant regarding your mobility during your studies:
Money is a big challenge for many students. That’s why it’s important that you approach the topic of student financing in a structured way. A financial plan or budget book are good tools.

As you can see, there are various ways to keep your head above water financially during your studies. If you are short of money, these tips will help you save money during your studies. Pay attention to the income limits if you receive state support and work. In addition, when you enter the working world, the topic of tax returns will come up. This may sound a bit dry at first, but lucrative refunds await you if you invest a little time and effort. Everything you need to know about this can be found in our article Student tax return.
Finding a place to live is often a headache for students. After all, affordable housing close to the university is in high demand. As soon as you have checked your finances, you should immediately consider which accommodation is right for you: should it be a shared flat or do you want to live alone during your studies? The latter offers significant advantages: Privacy, quiet while studying and your own realm. However, your own apartment is more expensive and it’s easier to make friends in a shared apartment. However, living with others is often a compromise, even if a shared apartment is a cheapest option during your studies. Of course, you can also look around for student dorms. If you don’t feel like compromising and time constraints, check out MILESTONE Design Apartments.
