I've graduated!

Graduation Day

Hello! I’m sad to be writing my final blog post which happens to be my final piece of writing for the University of Leicester. It’s been a great year full of hard work, but it’s been nice to take some time to write a more relaxed blog post every week or so. And what better […]

The End of an Era

The End of an Era

On the seventh of June, I had my last ever exam at the University of Leicester. As I put down my pen and raised my hand to leave, I reflected on how quickly the past three years had gone. It feels like only yesterday that I was sat in one of the university’s biggest lecture […]

Revision Tips

It’s that unfortunate time of year again when the nightmares of every student roll around – the exam period. With my first exam looming just over a week away, I thought I’d write a special revision-themed blog about how I try to cope with the stress and pressure of exams. Reward yourself This is my […]

The New Sports Centre Building

D Day – Dissertation Day, that is

Today has been a good day. I woke up early to meet my friend at the new gym the university has recently purchased. It’s a lot bigger than the old one we have on campus, and best of all – there’s a swimming pool! I had a gentle work out which was followed by a […]

Opal Court

The End of the Spring Semester

Hello! I hope you’ve had a wonderful Easter. I’m feeling very fat after overindulging in chocolate and felt like this was a good time to take a break from revision and write a blog post. I’m going to briefly mention my time in Opal Court, the halls of residence located in the city, and then […]

Accommodation Part Two – Student Housing

Accommodation Part Two – Student Housing

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a great week. I’m here this week to continue my story about accommodation, this time about what it is like to live in the city. If you haven’t read my post about life in Oadby, the student village, you can read it here. Towards the end of the first […]

Living in Oadby – the student village

Accommodation can be one of a student’s biggest worries before starting University. It’s a new home, possibly miles away from friends and family, where you’ll be living with total strangers. But you shouldn’t worry, because living in halls can be the best time of your life! In my first year of University, I was living […]

Winter Break and Future Thoughts

As I sit here writing this, a little heavier due to overindulging in chocolate over Christmas, I can happily reminisce about a winter break well spent… seeing the family (and family pets!), spending lots of time with friends and relaxing after a stressful term. Even the odd night shift where I work was enjoyable and […]

Another Term Gone

Another Term Gone

Today marks the end of another fantastic term at Leicester, and the realisation that Christmas will very soon be here!  Personally, I can’t believe how quickly this term has flown by. I remember last year saying “I can’t believe we are half way through our degrees”, and now I only have another semester left. A […]

Deadlines, Inductions and Malaria

This past week has been really busy, what with three deadlines in three consecutive days and a 6 hour induction course today. Let’s just say, I’m ready for an evening off (and perhaps a cheeky trip to Club Republic)! Essays are definitely one of my most dreaded things, but they’re something we all have to […]
