|Book for University Students at Hale Bookshop|
Alex's University Tips is by local author Alex Remizo, who attended Altrincham Grammar School and then went on to study at Manchester University. The book provides students with what they need to know to make the most of university.
It's available from Hale Bookshop in Hale Village. Alex comments "Hale Bookshop is a professionally run and highly reputable bookshop. I'm proud to have them as a stockist in the Altrincham area."
Before Alex’s University Tips was written, there was a learning curve for students to finding what university offers, how best to study, and dealing with university issues. For many it took until second or third year to realise it all.
This book collects together the authors’ experience and the experiences of other students and graduates, so the reader can make a head start and make the most of university.

A Note From the Author
I have started university twice – once in Sheffield where I successfully completed the first year, then changed to Manchester where I did a 3 year degree. By the second time around I’d learned how to make the most of university – the best ways to study, how to find the best entertainments, and much more. Also, for this book I spoke to hundreds of students and graduates about their experiences and what they wish they had known when starting university and in first year. It’s all included here, so now you can benefit from tips and advice to make the most of university.
The book is available from Hale Bookshop in Hale Village.
