You think when you end up at University, that it’s finally the end of those school trips to the local park or to see the amateur dramatics society for the umpteenth time. But luckily enough for all the budding Maths students out there, the highlight of first year is the annual jaunt to the ACTUAL […]
As fun as it might be going to the regular haunt every weekend or even the weekly visits to that same branch of Nandos, why not try to mix things up and see what else Leicester has to offer. So tie up that man bun and put on those fake glasses and let’s shine a light […]
Welcome everyone to the first of (hopefully) many blog posts! Firstly let’s give a big hand to last year’s blogger Lois for doing a great job for the department and we wish her the best of luck as she begins studying her MSc in France. Now, there’s a little bio at the bottom of the […]
Hands up if you’ve ever been told that it’s hard juggling a part time job and a full time degree? I’ve heard it thousands of times and whilst it is true, it can be done. It’s all about good time-management. In my first year of uni, I worked part-time at John Lewis and got a 2:1 but I had […]

For a Leicester student, the month of March means a few things: 1. The end of the second term. Deadlines everywhere. Crying into your coffee in the SU and your sneaky energy drink in the library. Many cries of ‘SEND HELP’, followed by a trip to the pub moments after the deadline, or crawling into […]
Today is the last day of my penultimate term at university, and as I’ve said, that’s terrifying.
