Moving On

Moving On

I’m going to start this blog like I have another, three years ago, around this time I was probably on holiday trying hard to enjoy myself while having a silent turmoil within my mind about university results and my future. Today, I write this post having graduated last Wednesday and in the process of moving […]

Work experience

As you might have already heard me say in some of my previous blogs, at university there are plenty of opportunities were one can gain some work experience/part time jobs. So in this post I thought I would describe some of the things that I’ve been involved in over the last three years. Hopefully it will give […]

Languages at Leicester

Languages at Leicester

Like Maths, languages was one of the few subjects I was certain I did not have any desire to take forward to my AS and A – Levels. I didn’t stop to think if either one of these would be useful when I come to apply for university courses or graduate jobs, I just knew […]

Facebook. Twitter. Email. Anybody else with me?

18 Days

It feels only like last month that I had my sixth form head, parents and friends telling me to get my personal statement sorted out and my UCAS application sent off. It feels like 3 weeks ago that I came to visit Leicester and popped into all the other universities I got my conditional offers […]

Be prepared, firms are not friendly!

During December a number of companies have their deadlines for their respective graduate schemes. My thoughts during this period were – concentrate on January assignments and exams as they go towards determining your final grade. Then there were a few deadlines in the beginning of February and my thoughts here were – I’ve let the majority of […]

Globalisation, then boredom, then fear!

Okay, so it has been about 4 weeks into lectures of the second semester and I’ve had my breakthrough thought! By the time you reach third year, a lot of the modules overlap in their contents. At the beginning of my final semester, I still felt there would be something completely new for me to […]

To introduce myself, here’s a bit about me…

Hello everyone, I’m Samyu, a third year student studying BA Management Studies at Leicester. A degree I find truly fascinating, especially the bits that allow me to attain a greater understanding of how and why consumers behave the way they do. Along this theme, for my dissertation this year I’m studying into the effects our […]
