About the author
When he enrolled as a fresher at Durham University in 2017, Jack Edwards decided to take his camera along with him and document the whole experience on YouTube. He hoped to shed some light on the authentic British university experience, in order to make uni a little bit less intimidating for those currently applying.
Now graduating from Durham, Jack continues to share tips for incoming freshers – from personal statement advice to study motivation – attempting to increase the accessibility and inclusivity of higher education for all.
University can be a daunting prospect, but Jack seeks to comfort his loyal viewers with honest, real and practical advice, from one student to another.
