University, whether you’re studying part-time or full-time can be a huge strain on your life, but I believe in making the most of your time as a student, and ensuring that you have had the best University experience when you eventually leave Higher Education.
Starting afresh at University doesn’t need to involve a drastic change, and by no means am I going to suggest changing your hair colour or buying a completely new wardrobe.
We all need a break once in a while, especially when studying at University consumes so much of our life, but with not much money to spare, finding a holiday for the right price can be problematic.
Those who know me will be aware of the huge additional opportunities advocator I am. I find it very difficult to say no when a chance to meet new people and enhance my employability is sent my way, and I like to think that I am getting my full money’s worth by grabbing every opportunity with two hands.
You might be reading this as a fellow local like myself – born and bred in Worcester – but for those who have moved away from home to Worcester, you should definitely be able to relate to these.
For most, presentations are a requirement of the course you are studying so there is absolutely no way of avoiding them. I used to find the idea of getting up in front of a group of peers and delivering a short talk extremely daunting, and despite the presentations on my course being pass or fail, I would still get extremely nervous.
World Book Day is definitely a highlight of March each year – a whole day celebrating the fantastic books written by equally-as-fantastic authors – what could be better?!
There is no denying how much of a step-up University has been for me as someone who transitioned straight from college.
