6 cleaning tips every student needs to know

When you move away to university, there can be a lot to adjust to at once. It's a time for meeting new people, expanding knowledge and living independently - and for many, the first time you've managed your own cleaning. Here are the eight tips every student should know, for a happy and healthy university life.

Create a rota

Students want two things: top grades and endless fun. If cleaning wars aren't on your university agenda, it's best to create a rota from the outset.

Get together with your housemates and create a list of tasks, then rotate each week. To make the job seem less daunting, split the rota into tasks, not rooms. This way, the rota is easily flexible, to cater for inevitably tight deadlines and exams.

When you move in, take the time to find out your waste collection day - and note this on the rota.

Organise the fridge

The secret to a sparkling kitchen is an organised fridge. Avoid food waste and foul smells by keeping a box for items approaching their use-by dates on one of the shelves, so you know what to use or clear.

Clear items from the fridge every few days, and take out kitchen bins. Food waste is the source of many student kitchen nightmares - stay on top of this rotation, and you're already enroute to a sparkling home.

For those new to Indianapolis, you can find a huge number of great entertainment activities for students. Here is a sampling of what you might like to do.

Check Out the Latest Breakout Rooms

While you want to keep your mind sharp, you want to get away from physics or programming for an evening. Why not check out the latest breakout rooms? An hour in an Indianapolis Escape Room might be just what you need. Take along a group of friends and work together as a team to solve the challenge. You are given exactly an hour to break out of the room by solving the mystery or puzzle. Beat the clock and you win. Let the time run out without finding the solution and its game over folks. Fast and fun, this is an activity any student will love.

Tips for foreign students in the workplace

Having a good degree can open many doors for you, and your career is very likely plotted out in some way. However, these days, a degree is simply not enough, and if you want to optimise your future, you need to consider ways of making your CV look more professionally rounded. In a time when competition is fierce, and every job has more applicants than they can feasibly interview, it is vital that your CV gets you into the interview room and that you have something to say when you get there. The best way to accomplish this is through extracurricular activities, and whether that means a part-time job in a field relevant to your studies, unpaid work experience or even simply volunteering for a local charity, having non-academic achievements on your CV can go a long way to improving your interview chances. However, before you start applying for every job you can find, it's important that you're aware of your rights.

Going to university in London is quite an exciting time in your life, and even though you are young and anxious to get out and about in the world, you may have little time on your hands to go out 'prowling.' Whether you want to really focus on studying for that degree, or simply don't have the budget to do a lot of travelling, there are many things students can do without ever leaving London. Here are a few.

Study Foreign Languages for Fun and Future

Most often you are in school to learn a specific career. Although there may be a few electives that enable you to take an odd course or two, the tuition you've paid covers your degree courses and typically there isn't much left over. Even so, what happens if you are studying for a career that is likely to bring you to foreign lands to work? Wouldn't it be nice to study foreign languages on the side, such as Mandarin Chinese or Spanish? Those are two of the languages most used in commerce, other than English that is, and you simply can't go wrong taking the time to learn another language that will help further you in your chosen field.
