Revision is over, all nighters and lack of sleep done, sunny days spent in the library are no more! Exams? Completed! Which means one great thing: summer is FINALLY here!

With a lovely long few months ahead of you to do pretty much whatever you like, we figured you might need a few ideas to help bulk up your summer to-do list. We have comprised a few suggestions of things you can do to make it that little bit extra, because after all you deserve it.

Go abroad

Be it a city break or a beach holiday, go somewhere you haven’t been before and get some guaranteed Vitamin D - because a break from our beloved British rain is sometimes needed.


Go to a festival

Go big with a festival like Reading and Leeds or Creamfields or go for a smaller, more local festival like Truck in Oxfordshire or MADE in Birmingham. Whatever type of music you like, the UK is bound to have something that fits your taste, with hundreds of great festivals happening all over the country throughout the summer months.

Go to the beach

Pack a picnic and head to the coast – after all, it’s not a true beach trip without some sandy sandwiches!

Explore your local city

Be a tourist. Go on a walking tour; see things you wouldn’t in a car or bus! Take pictures of yourself with the famous(ish) landmarks! Discover things you never knew existed, down roads you’ve never been down before. Find new shops and cafes!

Go to London and explore the city on a hop on and hop off bus!

(and if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in London for a day or two, make sure to check our some of the great accommodation sites we offer there!)


Get some work experience to bulk up your CV!

If you want to be a bit more productive with your weeks, it’s always a good idea to get as much work experience as you can while studying so you are always improving your employability. 


But of course the most important thing to do is enjoy yourself after a stressful few months!
