September is a month of new beginnings for many students getting ready to go to university for the first time.

It can be an emotional process for parents to watch their fledgling adult babies prepare to fly the nest for the first time.

Both children and parents may find this time a bit of a rollercoaster: exhilarating, nerve-wracking and challenging all at once.

This is all perfectly normal. Whether it’s the first, second or third year of university, many families will be feeling the same way about saying goodbye and seeing their offspring move on to the next stage of their lives.

How To Help Your Child - And Yourself!

After the excitement of receiving A Level grades and accepting a place at university, it’s a good idea to chat through some important practical life skills with your child, such as managing a student budget, cooking a few simple meals and doing laundry. Taking time to discuss these matters in advance gives you the space to deal with your emotions and adjust to them leaving. And it will give you peace of mind to know that they are as well prepared as possible for the challenges of their new, independent lives. Even students who are returning to university for a second or third year may well need a reminder. Many new students opt to live in university halls of residence or student accommodation. This has many advantages - not least that you know what you are paying for in advance! However, a university room has to fulfill many functions: workspace, bedroom, leisure area. As a parent, you want to make sure your child is getting the most from their university course, and part of this is ensuring they have a well-equipped workspace, including a comfortable, supportive chair for those long hours of study.

Choosing A Chair For Uni Work

This is a chance for you and your child to pick an adjustable office-type chair that is suitable for university-level work - including reading, researching and writing essays. As students spend lots of time working on a computer, it’s a great opportunity for them to get into good seating habits. A chair that fits well with good lumbar support makes it easier for them to concentrate. And a new chair to help them study also makes a popular and practical gift.

Consider whether the chair will only be used for study - or will it also be used for gaming? Here at Furniture Online, we have a great range of Office and Gaming Chairs that fit the bill, starting from an affordable £85, which also makes them great for those on a tight student budget. Our dynamic chairs not only look good, but they also provide support in all the right places and have adjustable seat height, and many have a recline function too. Some of our models even have removable neck and back pillows and adjustable armrests. 

If you want a comfortable chair that doubles as an extra seat when uni friends come round for a chat or a movie night, consider the reclining GTFORCE Evo CT Gaming Chair. Our office and gaming chairs are available in a wide range of bright, popular colours and are sure to make any student stand out from the crowd.
