Training Time – Sport in Leicester

We all know somebody who makes a new years resolution to go to the gym for whatever reasons. Well, it’s currently February, and I am still waking up at 7am frequently to hit the weights. Only 11 more months left! It’s a great feeling when you leave the gym knowing that you’ve produced an exhilarating […]

10 credit modules vs 20 credit modules

Being the only person to pick two 10 credit modules instead of one within my circle of friends, I was worried that this might mean more effort required. However, after a couple of weeks into my modules, I’ve realized that it is beneficial to me specifically.   Firstly, if you are someone who prefers coursework […]

Accomodation choices

If you are thinking of coming to Leicester University and you live in a different city, it’s likely that you will be moving out so accommodation is a priority. It’s important to have an idea of your living standards and expectations. Do you want to be catered or self catered? Would you prefer to live with […]

Religious places in Leicester

Hello all, I hope that the new year has started smoothly for everyone. I have a good feeling that this year will be different (like every year). This year, I decided to visit the temple and perform a small prayer for my exams (which have not gone too bad) and I was surprised as to […]

With Christmas now over, it’s time to get our heads down… and play with our Christmas presents! Of course, this is what I want to do but the constant reminder that exams are approaching makes my holidays jam packed with revision. So if you have a January exam coming up, have a look at these […]

Where to revise at the university?

Christmas is approaching and for me, that can only mean one thing: time to push ourselves and finish off coursework, assignments or anything that can prevent us from having a stress free holiday. Now of course, we all have our own places to revise. Whether it’s your home or local coffee shop, there’s no denying that some […]

Exploring Highcross

At the heart of Leicester City Centre lies a very popular shopping centre. Whether you’re looking for those warm winter clothes or fancy restaurants to dine at, Highcross has it all. What always attracts me there are the fashion shops, there’s a variety of them to suit your needs. My number one concern is normally […]

The 3 phases to get past our academic mistakes

This week, I got my results on a test I recently attempted (which was worth 20% of my overall grade). When I saw my results, I was surprised at how poorly I did but I thought “Doesn’t matter, I will just revise harder next time”, thinking that I could remain cool. Then later that evening, […]

Dealing with the neighbor next door

Last Friday at approximately 1am, I was trying to get some sleep in preparation for an early start on Saturday. However, constant noise and disturbance from a party upstairs woke me up.  Then, at 3am, the fire alarm goes off! There flew my chances of getting a good nights sleep.   We could all use […]

Where to eat on London Road?

If you enjoys eating at restaurants close to the university rather than taking a long 20 minute walk into town (like me), then I’m sure you are aware of London Road? It’s about a 5 minute walk from the university and is full of different styled restaurants. Whether you’re looking to wine and dine or […]
