Post-secondary education, the most exciting and stressful time of any student’s life.
University can be difficult. Luckily for us, Ibrahim Mohammed has a video to help us through everything it has to offer, from cooking and gadgets, to Freshers Week and everything in-between. You might even say he’s our guardian angel, making sure we’re able to achieve the marks we want while also taking in all this experience has to offer. (Which is a lot.)
Let’s get cracking with the nine times Ibz made university life so much easier!
When we learned to cook a quick and cheap meal
A whole host of people don’t really know how to cook cheaply beyond the staple of beans on toast when they first start university. That’s not a bad thing, it’s just that beans on toast happens to get stale pretty quickly, especially when you’re eating it three times a day. Thankfully, Ibz and Jasmine have our backs with this incredibly cheap and easy recipe for chickpea curry. With a summary of how much all the ingredients cost, there’s really no excuse to not get cooking!
When we were reminded what we need at university
Who doesn’t have a fond story of the very important things they forgot to take with them during their first year of university? Hopefully, future students who watch this video or at least see a portion of it have a little more of a chance than the rest of us. From laundry to seasoning, here are 10 must haves.
Best of luck with the next semester with your newfound knowledge.
When we got the gossip
Whether you attend one of them and want the dirt on the other universities, think they’re very overrated and went somewhere else, or have an opinion in-between, we all love a bit of gossip. If university life is getting you down, don’t worry. You’re about to gain the dirt on all the UK’s top universities, from UCL to Manchester.
Okay, maybe this isn’t the most useful of videos, but it’s well worth a watch. Also, a cheeky plot twist of positives regarding each university is something we all sometimes need reminding about.
What we should and shouldn’t buy
Technology can be a life saver whilst at university, but if you buy everything it can add up in no time at all. Luckily for us, this handy video exists, giving us recommendations for what we should buy, as well as the gadgets we definitely don’t need. (As much as we may feel like we do.)
Your bank account will definitely thank you for watching this!
Societies: yay or nay?
When you first start university, the number of societies available to you is honestly overwhelming, but should you bother joining one at all? Don’t ask us – watch this video and decide for yourself!
Does getting into a good university mean you’re smart?
Did we forget everything we learned the second we got our exam results back? Of course not! Well, maybe… Ibz tests this by asking GCSE-level questions to university students. Let’s see just how smart those working toward their degrees really are.
(Thank goodness we didn’t get interviewed…)
Can you work alongside your studies?
Many students have to work part-time and even full-time jobs alongside their studies in order to earn enough money to get by and pay for their schooling. With a few handy tips, Ibz and pal Chiedza Matsvai are here to help viewers work out how to cope with studying, as well as work.
Is it worth it for you? Watch the video and decide for yourself.
When we got a sneak peek into his life
Sometimes Week In the Life videos are all you need, whether to satiate your nosiness, get a glimpse into what life is really like for our fave creators, or simply because they’re fun to watch. If you’re about to start university and want an idea of what to expect, here’s what busy weeks can look like, as shown by Ibz!
When we learned how to survive Freshers Week
Ahh, Freshers Week. Some students love it, others loathe it. Prospective students have heard endless rumours about it, which means they might not know what to expect, you included. Here’s a whole bunch of advice, regardless of your specific Freshers Weeks plans.
Our tip? Don’t spend all your money on drinks.
So there you have it…
Through A levels and a degree, Ibz has given us a whole host of videos to help us through our studies. Is there a certain video you think we missed? Be sure to send us a tweet to @TenEightyUK and let us know!
