Hi all is there a chat on Mumsnet or a Facebook page that is available to discuss and give tips about your child going to university? smile

I am not sure there is but I am up for that. My DD2 is off to Bristol to study Anthropology in September. She is my baby. Seems strange that she is flying the nest. DD1 has already been through uni so i sort of know what to expect this time round.

Well, you're in the Higher Education section, which is probably the best place for such a discussion smile

There's a fairly recent thread about what they should take with them, there's the long running empty nest thread, and many more if you have a look back.

Thank you I'm new to this! How do I get back to the thread about what to take to uni? Also new to being a parent of a university child/adult - scarey stuff

MN's own tips
One from a few years back grin - don't know why that came up in my search and the one from a couple of weeks ago didn't - but the answers are pretty standard
One from earlier this year

It get asks quite a lot - worth hanging around both 'Higher Education' but also 'Secondary Schools' threads as people sometimes post useful stuff in there, too.
Welcome smile

If you look at this Higher Ed topic you can scroll down to Starting Uni 2016 - what do they need... or EMPTY NEST SUPPORT THREAD - PART 4, or if you go to the Secondary education topic you'll find Continuing Year 13: January 2016 which will probably also be useful.

Basically just have a look around smile
