There I am, a little 5-year-old girl clutching a postcard from Oxford that has just arrived in the post with an aerial image of Oxford, reading ‘Life is beautiful in Oxford. I hope one day you’ll be living it too’.
It’s reaching that time when everyone is starting to feel a little uneasy about the list of assignments fastly approaching. For us last year students, it’s all about the dissertation preparation as well… and for a lot of us, we also have placement to think about!
So, since my last blog I have been to the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro, moved into my new house and started my second year at University. It has been a bit of a shock to the system coming back to University after a couple of months off and fitting in training alongside lectures.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the biggest day of the year for all of our ears is here! (Rhyming not intended).
Coming to university is a step towards a new way of living, being more independent, taking care of yourself and last but not least doing the laundry and the cooking on your own.
University and students, on the whole, are depicted in many different ways in various forms of media.
There are plenty of helpful resources for students and it’s useful to know a bit about some of them. You may know and use them already, but I thought they are worth mentioning.
Living alone for the first time? University life brings a new amount of responsibility. Students suddenly have to manage more aspects of their lives but fortunately, the digital age makes it simple and straightforward.
