Writing a personal statement (as an international student)

  A personal statement is exactly what it sounds like – it’s a chance to tell the uni why you want to attend uni, and what you wish to achieve there.   The key to writing a good personal statement is realising that everyone has their own story to tell and that all the skills […]

I left Leicester

I left Leicester

  Yesterday I moved out of Leicester for good.     It was a surreal day – one that I thought would take forever to come around, but it was over so quickly. Too quickly.   I can remember getting out of the car in Beaumont Hall in Oadby on my very first day. September […]

Let’s Disko: Sausage Rolls, Angels, and Three Years of Memories

Let’s Disko: Sausage Rolls, Angels, and Three Years of Memories

  One constant in my life at Leicester for the past three years has been the uni club (the O2)’s night out on a Wednesday called Let’s Disko. I ended up going pretty much every single week for three years – now that’s commitment! It’s the cheesy pop hits night, which is so my thing. […]

Freedom!

  Thursday 11th May – otherwise known as ‘JOHN MAYER DAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!’ to me and Lucie. It has been months since we’d booked the tickets to see her favourite artist, and the excitement was UNREAL. Lucie cried hysterically when we saw an underground tube sign that welcomed the John Mayer fans and wrote sentences by including the […]

You’re you, not them

You’re you, not them

  One thing I advocate a lot is the fact that we should not compare ourselves to others. This is a particularly pertinent issue during exam time when everyone is working towards the same deadlines.   If there’s anything I’ve learned it’s that every person is different. Me, personally? I hate working during the day. […]

It’s that time of the year again

It’s that time of the year again

  Everything is so hectic right now with essay deadlines just around the corner and exams in mid-May.   A small insight into exam life at Leicester:   Okay. So… I was going to write about how annoyingly packed the library is and how important snacks are, but no one wants to hear about that. […]
