You've survived freshers' week and the first lectures. Perhaps you've made a few friends and have been busy sussing out the best nights out. You might even have completed your first few bits of work well before their deadlines - it's early days, after all.

But the first few weeks at university can still come as a shock, even if you’re an adventurous extrovert. Fortunately there are a number of ways students can make the most of this time and help themselves to settle into the swing of university life. 

Firstly, friends are great. They can point you in the right direction when you’re lost (literally or metaphorically), provide companionship when things aren’t going to plan (and when they are) and have a myriad of other handy uses. 

Secondly, don’t ignore the budget. It can be tempting to blow the whole loan when it comes through, but remember that it needs to last a lot longer than a week. Or even two. 

Thirdly, don’t neglect your studies. This shouldn’t need stating of course, but while it’s acceptable to not have the same desperate dedication to duty that will (inevitably) come, giving yourself a chance from the start is always good.

Lastly, don’t forget to eat. Now as a demographic, students aren’t exactly known for their ability to whip up delicious plates of gourmet food, but food is pretty essential. All that slaving away at the library (or dancing in the student union bar) until the early hours requires brainpower – and brainpower requires fuel. Luckily, there’s more than one way to obtain delicious food than preparing it from scratch yourself. and gentlemen, we give you - Chinese takeaway restaurants and delicious Chinese food.

Takeaways are great. And there are some very good reasons for their enduring popularity, especially amongst students. They are inherently social affairs, great for bonding with new housemates. There’s no need to worry about washing up, which means no (or fewer) arguments about washing up, which is great for halls or house relations. There’s no need to worry about being judged on cooking ability, or having to eat other people’s inedible culinary offerings with a fixed grin on your face. 

There are other takeaway options, of course. Who could argue with a chicken korma, a lamb rogan josh or a veggie bhuna? You might also in good conscience go for Italian, Thai, Tex-Mex or good old fish and chips. At JUST EAT we love the variety of options out there. 

But even these noble contenders can be brow-beaten into submission by Chinese restaurant takeaway and Chinese food. Not only does it tap into our love of tasty, filling food, it's also typically jam-packed with vegetables and healthy spices. The balance of protein and carbohydrates and sweet and savoury flavours can help to balance blood sugar levels and keep you feeling fuller for longer. Which all aids a restful night’s sleep and helps you study more effectively. What more could you ask for?
