Tips for life after university

Here are ten top tips for life after university, taken from Routed: a resource from Fusion and LICC for journeying with God post-graduation and into the world of work. 

SLEEP

You need this to function as a human being, especially when you are adjusting. Try and get as much as you need as often as you can.

SABBATH

Set aside one day a week for Sabbath rest: time out from work and life admin, to be refreshed and to reconnect with God. Consider a ‘digital Sabbath’ too.

CHURCH FAMILY

Commit to a church family early on. Join a small group so you can know others and be known more deeply.

SERVE

Serve the body of Christ – get on a rota, join a team, give financially.

BUDGET

Make and stick to a budget – spend less than you earn.

GIVE

Give money away, no matter how little or much you make. (10% of your pre-tax income is a good start).

READ SCRIPTURE

Read a psalm a day, out loud. This is a simple, sustainable quiet-time habit to start with and build on.

PRAY

Try a ‘commuting prayer’. Choose a few landmarks on your way into work and use them as ‘triggers’ for prayers.

BRANCH OUT

Have a variety of friends – Christian, non-Christian, work friends, church friends, hobby friends.

BOOK IT IN

Intentionally foster sustainable relationships. Show and tell how important they are to you, and get out your diary and book in another catch-up before you part ways. 

Routed gives students a vision for life after uni, laying out biblical mindsets and practical steps for whole-life discipleship. You can get your copy of the workbook from our website too.
