So summer is well and truly here, hopefully you’ve finished to enjoy the sunshine being carefree! For this blog I thought I’d talk about what a typical day at uni on campus looked like for me!
8:00am: My alarm would go off and after about 10 minutes or so I’d get up and get ready.
8:45am: Set off walking to my lecture, from ForestCourt most places on campus took 5-10 minutes max to walk to leaving me good time.
9:00am: My lecture would start normally around 9am, but not all do! I would sit with and talk to my friends as the lecture began I would take notes, listen and talk to the lecturers.
10:45am: Around this time we would normally be given a comfort break, meaning we could have a snack, drink and relax!
11:15am: The lecture would continue around this time in the form of a tutorial where we would answer questions based on the lecture. The lecturer is still available to ask questions during this time if you want more information or get stuck!
1:00pm: The lecture would finish around this time. This means dinner time! In first year I occasionally pre-prepared my dinner, went back to my uni flat to have dinner or even tea out occasionally if the budget stretched!
1:30pm: Another lecture! For me these lectures in one day mostly contrasted between the maths side of my degree and the education part.
3:00pm: Another comfort break.
3:20pm: The lecture begins again! Normally with a tutorial like activity, working individually or in a group! The education lectures promote conversation and topical debate! The sharing of good practice is also promoted and extremely useful!
5:00pm: All finished for the day!
This then just left the evening to have some tea, complete work and get ready for the next day! Between this time you should talk to your flat mates and enjoy living in a the student community!
So in a few months time you’ll be in your own little routine! Enjoy it!
