'We help graduates to pass on advice and inspiration to where it can make a difference.'
First piloted in 2006, advice to sink in slowly is an ongoing series of posters designed by graduates for the purpose of passing on advice and inspiration to first year students. The posters are given as a welcoming gift to first year students across the UK.
- Everyone has a piece of advice they wish they had known earlier, but often don’t have the chance to pass that advice on to where it can make a difference.
- Advice is subjective. But, by passing on advice in a creative way, it is possible to create something that can last, that people will want to live with and which can let the advice sink in slowly and be there to help out later on.
- The prospect of University can be scary and it can take a while to feel at home and comfortable in new surroundings. As well as passing on advice, the project aims to help new students to feel welcome and bring a sense of belonging and continuity to their first days at University.
- It is the attempt at the exchange that matters most of all.
What our supporters say:
"These posters supply the sort of inside advice Freshers won't get anywhere else, in a medium that is powerful but not intimidating. New students are inundated with tips, but they're likely to remember these for a lot longer than the rest."
