My Story

“I'm Philippa, mother of two young adults, living in Switzerland, originally from the UK.”

Are you feeling anxious about starting university? Don't worry, you're not alone! I understand the challenges of making the transition to university and preparing for this major life change. Having guided my own children and numerous students in three different countries, I've encountered and learned from the various hurdles involved in preparing for university.

That's why I've created the ultimate student guide, From High School to Uni, just for you! My mission is to guide you every step of the way, ensuring a seamless transition and a successful start to your university life.

"From High School to Uni is a comprehensive, easy-to-use resource that covers everything you need to know, from planning your departure to gathering essential documents, using our efficient university packing lists, cooking and organising your halls of residence. We also cover student resources, shopping wisely, effective student budgeting and maintaining your mental wellbeing to survive on campus.

Think of it as your own personal Freshers' Tips toolkit, giving you all the tools you need to prepare for university life.
