Once the exams are over, and the deadlines are just a memory, you will have 3-4 months of summer spreading out on the horizon. And making the most out of this time is great for your rest, relaxation, and recuperation. But it could also be a great time to get some much needed work experience, or to spend some time catching up with the friends and family members you’ve probably been too busy to meet up with over exam season. Here at Let Pads, we are Preston’s leading student accommodation experts, and this is our guide to help you make the most out of your student summer!

Effective options for maximizing your student summer break

If you want to make the most out of the long summer ahead, there are a number of things you can consider. These include:

  • Catching up with friends and family
  • Finding paid employment
  • Travel, exploration and growth

Grab some social time

The past few years have not been a great time socially, and this is the first summer without masks or limits for travel and freedom since 2020. As a result, you could consider cashing on this social freedom and catching up with friends and family. This can be one of the best ways to help you de-stress and feel fresh. Your friends are no doubt missing your company, and the summer is a great time to meet and make some new ones. So why not check out a festival, or host a world cup themed barbecue? There are also plenty of events on in Preston over the summer.

Make some cash

While many students have a job throughout their time at university balancing work with studying can be a challenge. So over the summer, why not put in some extra hours at your usual job? Or find a different one? To give you some much needed cash ready for the next academic year.

Explore and grow

If you already have some cash saved, why not use some of it to go travelling? There are many options aimed at students, that would allow you to also volunteer in another country. Whether its with animals and conservation, or teaching, health or farming, this summer could be a great opportunity to explore and grow. Especially now many of the travel restrictions have been lifted internationally.
