Forensic and Applied Biology lecturers share some insights into what their students are up to.
Hi, everyone! Saludos from Barcelona, Spain! That’s right…I’m still here, I have two more months until I finish my semester abroad and I can say without a doubt that this has been THE BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!
Finding the right place to live while at university is hassle enough without weighting in the problems that coming from a foreign country poses. So here’s what I’ve learnt from my experience and the issues I’ve faced.
Social media is often used to record what happens throughout life. Through tweets and Facebook posts, a story can be told and what better way to tell the tale of my time at university.
As a person I am prone to worrying, I worry about worry lines… I do it that much. So it’s understandable that I had a few concerns when at 18, I decided to move 124 miles away from home to go to University in Worcester.
Since I started the University of Worcester, I have always been asked why I chose the course I study and whether I would recommend it to anyone.
When I moved to Worcester I was unaware that it was in the Midlands. I was also unaware that the Midlands meant ‘middle of the land’ and, therefore, there would be no seaside which I am so used to at home.
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.
