Three months off is a long time – a very very long time! Plenty of time to see friends, family, have a good catch up and even earn some money. However, it is also plenty of time to gain some valuable work experience in an industry your degree potentially leads to or perhaps one that […]
Not got any plans for Not got any plans for the summer yet, as a result of your cleared out bank account? Think as a student you can’t enjoy your summer break with a festival? Think again! Summer is the season of festivals, yet despite the UK weather being slightly hit and miss, we have […]
Phew – another year done and dusted. Whilst many of you are wrapping up the end of what I’m sure was a stressful exam period and having a well-deserved rest, some of you may start to think towards finding summertime work to replenish your funds (that have no doubt taken a hiding over the […]
Pizza – renowned for being the ultimate student food, not to mention the one and only cure after a big night out. In this time of need, you want something hot, delicious and made exactly the way you like right there, right then to dig into. And let’s be honest, frozen pizzas don’t seem to […]
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.
As the dreaded assessment period draws ever closer once again, you may be starting to look at your never-ending revision checklist. But first off, ask yourself a few questions…
Most couples nowadays have to limit the amount they spend on each other for birthdays, Christmas and day to day activities. For student couples, this can be even more difficult. So when it comes to Valentine’s Day, as much as you might want to splash out and treat your loved one to an outlandish evening out (pretending not to worry about the mounting bill) your bank account may not agree. Valentine’s Day can often mean bars and restaurants bump up the prices and restaurants will no doubt be heaving.
As many of us are now back at university, a new semester is as good a time as any to try and better yourself in areas that, perhaps in your first semester, were lacking slightly. For example, want to try and improve your attendance or grades? Maybe try and lose some of those pesky pounds you put on over the last few months? Or even being more frugal with your loan?
Around this time last year, my current housemates and I started the search for our new digs for second year. Traditionally second and third years will move out of university halls and into a private student home with a letting agency. Some universities will recommend ‘student approved’ letting agencies that deal specifically with student homes, for example, my university endorses Liverpool Student Homes.
Something that’s not the first thing that springs to mind when discussing student issues – depression. If you ask most people to sum up their student experience in a couple of words, you will most likely get something along the lines of “the best years of my life”. This is what makes depression and students so dangerous – it’s under the radar and very rarely talked about. So what about those students who aren’t lucky enough to have the same experience?
Hallelujah! We made it through the dreaded month that is January, usually full of rainy, cold weather and exams, revision and lots of stress. So now that it’s over, you (well, some of you) might feel all that hard work should be rewarded.
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...
WRAP suggest that 60% of all household waste is caused by the misunderstanding of food labels. Considering the scares in the food industry lately, this is completely understandable – nobody wants to risk eating dodgy meat. However, it is not necessarily the date that is important on food labels. It is the pesky phrases that come before it that are causing the confusion.
Trying to navigate student life on a budget is one of the biggest challenges faced by young Brits across the nation. Of all the everyday expenses that students face, food is by far one of the most important, helping to keep them healthy, nourished and ready to revise.
Fairtrade Fortnight ended on Sunday 10 March, a fortnight designated to raising Fairtrade awareness. However it’s not only during this fortnight that Fairtrade should be chosen, with many brands providing Fairtrade goods without you perhaps even realising; and they also don’t cost as much as you may think.
