VCR: The School of Life

In this new series we’ll be picking out some of our favourite YouTube channels and letting you know why we think they’re so great. From advice on how to ace a job interview to relaxing videos to help you achieve total mindfulness, you’ll catch it all on the VCR (Video Channel Reviews) feature.

Today we’re talking The School of Life. This channel covers quite literally every aspect of life – topics range from comedy, to relationships, to self, to capitalism. Everything you have ever thought about, even a tiny bit, they’ve got it covered.


If you fancy easy to watch videos that can either fry your brain or make you laugh, then this is a great channel. You’ll click one video and find yourself still watching more an hour later.

Their videos aim to answer all the questions of life with the help of culture, which is great because they make accessible content that everyone can get on board with.

Top Picks

Take every video with a pinch of salt and a lot of laughter. But definitely head to their relationship section for some content that will ring true for many people. From “The Fear of Intimacy” to “How Not to Break Up With Someone“, these will make you laugh and cringe.
