Being in my third and final year of University was always a time I have been dreading the most… not so much because of the 8000 word dissertation, which I will admit does sound intimidating, but the prospect of ‘what next?’.
The University of Worcester has a fantastic Careers and Employability Service, which is open to all current students as well as those who have graduated within the last three years! It offers several different types of advice and help that can be really useful to take advantage of during and after your time at the University of Worcester.
When I go back to my first year, I remember that the reality check showed I needed a part-time job to cover all of my costs. Money were flying away as it was the year of exploring Worcester, travelling around England, my new home, attending many social events and buying all the books I needed for my course.
The V-record – something that every Worcester student should know about. This dainty little book is the key to something special!
I’m very proud to say that during my time at Worcester I have done a lot as a Drama student and as an Ambassador. I co-run weekly drama workshops at The Hive, I assist in drama open events, I’ve assisted with youth theatre and the National Theatre Connections project and I’m also employed as an actor!
As you know from my profile, I do a lot of voluntary work in my spare time working with children and adults with special needs. It all gives me good knowledge and experience to pursue my dream of being a Special Needs teacher.
Life can be VERY good for a sports student at the University of Worcester, if you know how to take advantage of what the uni has to offer.
