Is this the beginning of the end?

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 […]

Clearing? Let’s clear that up
Posted by Faheema in Sociology on June 10, 2018
My journey here at the University of Leicester started off in clearing process and lets say it is not a decision I regret! The clearing service was so simple, straightforward and quick! During the initial phone call where the advisor just asked what course I was interested in and what grades I had achieved, I […]

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 […]

Coming through ‘clearing’
Posted by Faheema in Sociology on July 10, 2017
When I initially applied for universities while at college, I was dead set on moving out which meant I ended up firming a university in London as my first choice. However, as the year progressed I realised that I wasn’t actually ready to move out. So, when results came round I had to contact universities […]
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 […]
Easter means complete rest, right?
Posted by Faheema in Sociology on April 27, 2017
It is now the end of the easter break and I have run out of ‘tomorrows’ to start on my work. I gave myself the first week of the holidays to catch up on sleep and not think about the load of work that needed to be done. But my week off turned into multiple […]
Semester one, that is officially a wrap!
Posted by Faheema in Sociology on January 22, 2017
Even though in my mind semester one finished the day we broke up for Christmas, it officially ended on the last day of exams. I have now submitted my first ever pieces of academic/university essays as well as sitting my first ever university exam, all very exciting things. The one really weird thing about all […]

All three essays were handed in last night. Of course there were some last minute panics, but all is well and it’s finally the last day of the semester! Its been a whirlwind, a good whirlwind mind you, three months. All the worries I had before starting, have vanished and I can now say I’m […]

Now that Easter is done and dusted it is, sadly, time to begin concentrating on summer exams (how is it that time again already?!). Through my three years studying here I have consistently achieved decent grades in exams which means I am probably a good person to speak to about exam tips, so here are some […]
