  • Time Management (Note to Self)

    In my third year at university, starting in September, I will have quite a lot on my plate. I’m hoping this blog post will serve as a guide to others as well as a note to myself to remember how to manage my time next year! So, from September I will be: treasurer of the […]

  • My Favourite Things I’m Involved in at Uni!

    As it’s almost the end of my second year and third year is when everything gets real, I thought now would be a nice time to reflect on some of the things I’ve been involved in at uni and what I love about them! They aren’t in any particular order but I would strongly recommend […]

  • A few words to young international students.

    I attended secondary school in a small town on the East coast of Malaysia, Kuantan.

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

  • University Open Day Tips

    At the end of the month I’ll be helping out in my first open day of 2019 and I can’t wait! I’ve been helping out as a history ambassador for almost a year now and I love it. The best part is definitely meeting the prospective students and their families, and being able to help […]

  • Accommodation for Students as Experienced by Students

    It’s possible, no matter what year group you are in, that you have had an email sent, or a leaflet through the door, asking you to decide where to live next year. The experienced students know that these messages usually come in before the Christmas holidays and there is usually a mad dash to get […]
