Open Days – Join us!

On Saturday we had a great Open Day! New excited students willing to join the university. My part was to work in the registration team and it was really nice to see everyone smiling as soon as they have entered the university, ready to look around and speak to the academics. I know, it doesn’t sound too exciting but it honestly was – especially since the transition from college work to a degree is such a huge step. The open team tried their best to make everyone at ease!

The good thing about student staff working during Open Day is that we can answer questions about how we find the university, from accommodation to studying. You can ask us anything, without hesitation. It would be so nice to see familiar faces at the campus, so even once you do start your course – I am always here to help!

Even though I did work during the weekend, I have four deadlines within the next four days; being organised is such a huge part of my daily routine as without it I wouldn’t get anything done at all.

I will be posting again soon, but for now – adios! J

Chill Out!

Hey guys, I hope you are all well :)

Within the Business School, most deadlines are between now and April so many students will be panicking. I don't mean as in, call a friend to say that they are stressed out. I mean spending the entire night in the library (yes the night, whilst everyone is asleep) so that they can meet deadlines. 
If the deadline is not met then that will be a failed grade straight away - how upsetting is that? So I have to make sure I submit everything on time as well as revising for my examination in May. 

It can be done, I did it all last year but it’s hard to get started, once I get started with my essays, they flow so easily and can be completed in no time. In terms of presentations, I find them the easiest way to be graded on my knowledge, because a lot of preparation goes into it and there is a main title to focus on, just like with an essay - you could consider it as a spoken essay :D The exams are the hardest for me, as all the knowledge has to be stored at once and once I start the exam I start to panic… Not the greatest of reactions but it happens. I have to make sure I plan and prepare so that I can feel as calm as possible.

Not to worry, it will all be done by May! 

For this year anyway…
