What I wish I’d known as a student: uni shouldn’t just be about studies

Your time at university should never be just about the theory. That’s what Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic says. He’s a top academic who, despite his success, believes that practical experience is just as important as theoretical skills.

Tomas believes there are many useful skills you can learn at university, and not all of them through your degree course. You can develop your leadership skills in a variety of ways, whether by joining a society or creating your own group or enterprise. And this of course will help you stand out with prospective employers.
