Are UK universities going to lose students to the EU?

Hey guys. I stumbled across this article yesterday which left me intrigued: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-31503193 Apparently, British students can now apply to European Universities through UCAS – not forgetting that European Universities will most likely also be charging less than £9,000 per year. As far as I know, the option to apply to European Universities for British […]

Keep calm and carry on… #1

Hey guys! So… apparently Thursday is A Level results day. Not gonna lie… I’m still trembling from the A Level results day I had two years ago. Funnily enough, I ended up going in to clearing and the thing is, I had a funny feeling I would because of a certain exam not going too well. […]

I need more than 24 hours in a day…

In recent weeks, I’ve honestly been crying out loud for more than 24 hours in a day. “Why?” you might ask? Well, the answer is simple. I have 3 exams in 3 weeks time and I can’t revise for them until I finish all of my coursework… Now you’re thinking – well, you’ve had 4 […]

Computer Science ≠ Video Games!

I was talking with a friend of mine a few days ago regarding how their AS subjects were going and what they were considering to do at University. Coincidentally they mentioned ‘Computer Science’. So I thought, bingo, my speciality. I asked him what attracted him to the subject and warned him that Computer Science is […]

Another blog post about revision… with a twist

Hello! Hopefully everyone is enjoying their holidays so far as we approach 2014. It honestly seems like it turned 2013 a few weeks ago. It’s amazing how fast time flies by. So, revision eh?

It’s three o’clock in the morning, you are a Computer Science student, you have a Software Engineering assignment due in at eight AM, what do you do? The answer to the above is quite simple, arguably somewhat of a creed that all Computer Scientists live by… Take over the labs all night, work ’till your […]

Red cups… it’s a sign

Red cups… it’s a sign

Yeah, that’s right… red cups. If you’re a first year, you’ll probably still be trying to get your head around why you keep spending your student finance on Starbucks coffees from the student union. If you’re a second, third, fourth, bla bla bla year, you’ll most likely be thinking what I’m thinking. Yes, that’s right. […]

From the drawing of stick men to the inside of a single core processor to space invaders?

The main aim of this blog post is to give you guys – the readers – a little bit of insight of what my second year has consisted of so far. I started off my second semester learning about use case diagrams as part of a software engineering module. I think it’s safe to say […]

Back to the promised land… again

Back to the promised land… again

A 10 am start yesterday, a 3 hour ride in a car, a dirty washing machine, a filthy kitchen, a mysterious lack of curtains in my bedroom… it was then I knew I was back to good ol’ student life. I had originally planned to come back on Saturday, but the plan had to suddenly […]
