Hi, all. This article contains a quick update on what I’m up to now. I’ve finished all of my exams and I’ll be graduating in July. For me, it’s almost the end of an era.
I’m now taking some time to relax. My exams went pretty well. I started my revision early and I put in many hours, which I’m sure will have paid off. I’m looking forward to getting the results back to find out how well I did.
It seems weird not to have any more lectures or exams. In a way it’s a good thing, but I’m sure I’ll miss it, too. For me to now be able to say ‘I’ll never have to study economics again’ fills me with mixed emotions.
This year has been a good one, but it hasn’t been all that exciting. At times, it seemed like the most excitement I got was from studying at home rather than in the library. I suppose that it’s pretty much the same for many other students in their final year. That having been said, I enjoyed my modules this year. They were all challenging in different ways and they have given me useful tools and perspectives to think critically and to better understand the world.
I feel like I can come away from my experience at The University of Leicester with a great sense of pride. I’ve met many interesting and intelligent people and I got involved in a number of different things. For example, I was a Course Rep in my first year, I was in the East Midlands University Officer Training Corps in my second year, and last year, I studied abroad in Copenhagen on an Erasmus exchange. This year, I did the Leicester Award Gold and I put my head down and worked hard to do my best.
For now, I plan be in Leicester for about another month. I’m going to the gym at least three times a week and I’m making time to relax and to plan for the future, too.
