It is that time of year when everyone is slowing down and gearing up for the Christmas holidays. The city centre is well lit and campus has just hosted its annual Christmas market (the best food is eaten here!). But as a third and final year student, this point of the year is basically the […]

Options, options, options

It is that time of the year when deadlines are fast approaching but we’re all braving through this knowing that we do not actually have to come back for any teaching, just exams we might have during May/June. But this also when we get the email asking us to choose our options for the following […]

“4 weeks till Christmas Faheema” is what I keep telling myself as soon as I wake up. I was under the illusion that second year would not be that different to first year but the first half of semester one was an eye opener to say the least. Not saying that first year is a […]

The November grind
Posted by Faheema in Sociology on November 2, 2017
It’s that time of the year when the Christmas holidays seem so close yet so far! But don’t worry, there’s just over a month to go! This time last year, as a fresher, we were getting grilled about deadlines from all of our modules and the library was starting to fill up with those writing […]

So, what exactly do you do?
Posted by Faheema in Sociology on May 15, 2017
“So, what exactly do you with all the free time you have?” – This is a question I have been asked over the year on many occasions and to be honest, I am starting to get pretty annoyed. I am fully aware that during the teaching periods us sociology students have very few contact hours […]

And so the essays begin…
Posted by Olivia W in Sociology on March 27, 2015
For many of you at university it has got to that time of the semester where the essay writing has started (or for the lucky ones that time might have passed…well I say lucky but you probably still have essays or exams looming). Anyway, a few months back I did a blog which included my tips […]

A merry Christmas and a happy new year
Posted by Olivia W in Sociology on December 28, 2014
This is just a mini post to say I hope everybody has had a great Christmas and has a happy new year! I hope lots of food is being eaten, time is being spent with family and friends and lots of films are being watched (well that’s the story for me!). And of course I […]
It’s essay time again!
Posted by Olivia W in Sociology on November 10, 2014
It has already come to that point in the year where the essay writing has started (how on earth is it November already?! This year is going far too quickly…) but even after having survived two and half semesters I still get myself so confused when I start writing essays because I have pages and […]
How to combat those feelings of anxiety.
Posted by Amy-Rose in Sociology on January 16, 2013
Upon my recent return to Leicester, I have rapidly realised my biggest drawback in most aspects of my life is the crippling anxiety I face when under times of pressure. Usually, I’m a major advocate for anything which can present a challenge and have a habit of setting myself the most ambitious (and often unrealistic) goals. Yet, […]
