Hey there <<First Name>>! 
 
As you prepare for the impending onslaught of turkey, trees and tinsel, Push is busy thinking about what lies ahead. What does the future hold for you?

WHAT'S NEW?
TREATING YOURSELF THIS WINTER

Winter is more than just Netflix binges and hot chocolates (we're boiling the kettle right now...). As the festive period dawns on us, how we approach it is like being presented with a turkey wish bone - or a Quorn one vegans (although we're actually not sure how that would work): we can pull one way yet and be convinced good vibes are coming our way, only to be surprised by the eventual outcome... read more.
THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS SURVIVAL GUIDE

You’re probably looking forward to the festive season. But as you know it can be a stressful time as well as a happy one.
 
If you’re a student, then returning to the family home after a period of independence is challenging. Plus the most wonderful time of the year is also the most expensive!
 
What’s the best way of avoiding pressure at Christmas, whilst taking the strain off your bank account? Our guide is here to light the way... read more.
GLOBALLY MINDED GRADS

In the world we live in, it’s increasingly more valuable to be as internationally minded as you possibly can.
 
And no, we don’t mean that you should be mixing up your weekly tikka masala order, and would be better off getting the occasional Chinese or Italian takeaway instead.
 
Being internationally minded - where you’re open to different cultural behaviours and attitudes, and can embrace new ideas from beyond your bubble - is a crucial and invaluable attribute... read more.
WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING?
For year 12s
 
Your mates in the year above might be able to breathe a sigh of relief having submitted their final UCAS and apprenticeship applications, and rightly so. But for you, the process is quickly becoming a reality. So now is a good time to  splash some cold water in your face, puff your chest out and start an exciting research project called: what I’m going to do at 18.​.. read more.
For year 13s
 
If your plan for next year is university (or a higher education course via a college) then you’ve already submitted your application, right? If not, then get a move on. The UCAS deadline (January 15th) may be the official cut-off, but a lot of places will have been filled already. It’s like a queue: being at the back still means you’re in, but the good stuff might be taken by the time they see you... read more.

THE ULTIMATE UNIVERSITY PACKING LIST

One of the biggest steps when you’re leaving home to go to university is deciding what to take with you. You may find you need to go out and buy a load of new items for your new life! It can feel overwhelming when you’re moving away from home for an extended period of time but there’s definitely no need to panic. With careful planning, you can make sure you’ve got all the essential items you need for your new life! Our ultimate university packing list is here to get you started... read more.
SOFT SKILLS: THE FINAL FRONTIER

If you asked a handful of under-10s what they want to be when they grow up, chances are at least one of them is going to say astronaut. You might get a few more who’d come out with YouTube slime reviewer or professional Fortnite dancer, but space explorer is a timeless classic.
 
We’d be lying if we said it doesn’t still sound like one of the coolest careers out there... read more.
MONEY... DOES IT REALLY MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND?

Studying abroad in Rome, taking a year out to backpack Asia, working a placement in New York - the chance for young people to get out and see the world is just as popular as ever.
 
And why wouldn’t it be? Now’s the perfect time. No obligations, no career commitments, no pesky mortgages to pay.
 
Once you’re free from the grips of school, the world really is your oyster.
 
But there’s something that anyone hoping to trot the globe has to worry about, and that’s how to fund it... read more.
