So, it’s that time of year again - stressful whether you are in your first year or final year, whether you feel prepared or unprepared. Now we're nearing the end of exam season, the summer break is calling and concentraction levels may be waivering. Follow the 5 points below to help you make it through those last few weeks...
It is old news that toasties – particularly cheese toasties – are the typical student’s favourite snack, especially in times of need. But, when you think about it, there is nothing separating the humble toastie from the pretentious panini – it’s just a sandwich, after all...
Everyone knows that person. That person who, in some magical way, achieves exactly what they want to achieve, when they want to achieve it. Maybe it’s a friend, family member, someone you love or someone you hate. It could even be you.
University. It’s all about socialising, having fun and gaining life experience, right? Or perhaps for you it’s all about learning, exploring your interests and improving yourself. For whatever reason you are or want to be a student, you will undoubtedly find something about it appealing.
Don’t get me wrong – I have some good memories from Valentine’s Days past. But now that everything red, pink and fluffy is appearing as soon as Christmas is over, Valentine’s Day seems to be getting a bit old. Unlike other holidays there is no guarantee of presents, no reason to get drunk that doesn’t involve self-pity, and no greater meaning to be taken away at the end of it all. Even if you like endless teddy bear cards, there has to be something better to do on the 14th of February than watch some non-funny rom com while waiting for an acceptable moment for a PDA.
If you haven’t already been bombarded with leaflets, free lollipops and invitations to join absurd promotional events, you are obviously lucky enough to live in a University with non-aggressive letting agencies nearby. For those of us who do, the mad rush to find a student house to live in for the next academic year could hardly have gone unnoticed. Hunting for housemates, signing contracts, paying deposits… the whole thing is all a bit bewildering.
It can be so tempting, can’t it? Walking down the aisles of your food store of choice, browsing the gorgeous goodies on offer, particularly with Christmas coming up... And all those offers and brightly-coloured badges, they mean you’re saving money in the process too. It’s a win-win situation, right?
£90,000 in lunches. That seems like a crazy amount of money, and it is. But, as shown by a study published earlier this year, that is the very amount you could end up spending on food throughout your working life.
Maybe you have just moved into student accommodation, or know someone who has. Either way, you might want to pay attention to some pretty startling news about fire hazards in Halls of Residence.
So, you’ve started University. You’ve done Freshers’ Week, met some new people and (hopefully) had a good time. But when the real stuff kicks in (i.e. work) you may find yourself coming back down to earth with a bump. You might realise that something is missing.
The worst bit about revising can be sitting at the same desk, at the same paper of notes for weeks on end. It’s no wonder really that we find any excuse to avoid it, my flatmate once even cleaned the fridge (!) just so she could put off doing any revision for that extra half an hour…
Do you find yourself hopeless in lecture halls without a cup of coffee inside you? Can you not kick-start your morning without a caffeine fix? If you’re the type of student who needs to fine-tune their focus and elongate their attention span with the help of a cup of steaming coffee, you probably spend your […]
You don’t have to be the Naked CV Writer or a Domestic CV Goddess to cook up a tasty interview-winning CV, here’s a foolproof recipe to feed one or more talent-hungry recruiters...
It’s that time of the year again when freshers undergo the transition from living in halls or shared uni accommodation to finding a house for the next academic year and are probably panicking. You may not know where to go, where to start or even what you should be looking for. A few years ago, I was in the same position, so therefore I have come up with ways for you (as a fresher) to remember when hunting for that year long accommodation.
At this time of year long and gruelling library sessions are inevitable, especially if you find working at home is too distracting. Some of you may as well call the library your second home. But if you’re anything like me that usually ends up about 30% work 30% procrastination and 40% people watching.
