  • A week in the life of a law student

    Sometimes I study harder, occasionally I remember to bring a packed lunch to save money, and I’ve been known to go to the gym more. But what follows is an honest account of a typical week in the life of a law student.     Monday   8.30: Get off the bus outside uni and […]

  • What to do when the deadlines are coming in hot

That means we’re halfway through the semester and if you’re one of the lucky ones not yet overwhelmed by many many deadlines, don’t worry, they’ll be coming in soon! And what do you […]

  • My Favourite Things About the Library

    As a history student, I spend a lot of time in the library on campus. I heard this saying once and I’ve always remembered it: the library is our lab. As in, in the School of Humanities, you don’t have timetabled lab sessions, but you do need to spend time outside of class consolidating what […]

  • Weeks One and Two Round Up

    Weeks one and two seemed to be over in a flash! I can’t believe week three of classes is already fast approaching. I thought I’d do a quick realistic review of my first two weeks. Firstly, on the weekend of freshers fair i.e. right before classes started, I finally got a part time job here […]

Both of which I quite happily strived to achieve. I […]

  • Week 1 – Let’s Get Organised

    We’re back! Christmas is over, the New Year doesn’t feel so new anymore. It’s time to get organised for the semester before it’s too late! And week one is a perfect time to do it, with less work than any other time in the semester we’ve got plenty of free time to get ourselves sorted! […]

  • Exam Season

    For a student, semester one changes from Summer to Exam Session. It is easy to spot, dark cold and wet, the only thing keeping you in the library. The semester is beginning to wind up and student flood to the library, in the hopes of warmth under the pretense of studying. In my third year, […]

    It’s nearing the end of November and that means, at least in the Humanities, that all your deadlines creep up on you at once! We’ve all experienced maybe being a little unprepared for this so here are a few tips on how to avoid it this year. Firstly, always keep track of when all your […]
