Freshers’ First Day

The start of September can only mean one thing – UNI IS BACK! Not only is the excitement real for all of you new, budding freshlings, but also it means that my third and final year is officially here.

Summertime madness

It is crazy to me that the academic year is over. Exams are finished, lectures are done and FND’s are now no more until October – I’ll miss you so very much Cogs.

Getting over that exam crunch

Even though I am currently on a placement year and when I go back to studying, my degree is fully coursework – I do understand the pressure of exams.

Open days 101

Open days can seem like a really daunting experience especially when it is your first time going to one, but they’re extremely useful when it comes to making that all important decision of choosing what university you want to attend.

On the other side of things

Having already completed nearly half of my placement, I thought I would share my experience of being on the ‘other’ side of university life.

Perks of the placement

I’ve always been one for travel, whether it’s closer to home and a quick camping trip to Wales, or sampling basically every culinary dish I could in Singapore.

Winter is coming

This month has been a bit of a whirlwind for me – I think I say this every month but it truly seems to have just flown by!


Back in the swing of things

So it’s official – all you Freshers have arrived and I am now (technically even though I’m on placement) a third year.
