For me, it is a time of preparation.
Everything I have been studying since Christmas is jotted on notes and textbooks I’ve used. Lecture have now finished so I have about three weeks to look over everything & be ready to answer what ever questions might be thrown at me in the two exams. I’m sure you all know that exams are usually not as bad as we all think they will be – STILL, it will be nice to have them out of the way.
A few of my group have been studying together, we just discuss our views on topics & quiz each other – it’s useful and a bit less stressful than doing everything alone!
For every one who has their own College exams – good luck!
Get in touch with any questions : )
All year long auditions have been running for the production of Alice in Wonderland on the Edge Hill Campus. By about Christmas time the cast was set & the rehearsing started all the way back in January! Anyone could apply, so the cast is full of drama, dance, sport, business, english & maths students! They seem to have had a real ball creating the show, and the costumes look brilliant.
All of the cast members I managed to get a hold of said that it had proved a welcome distraction from Uni work & a way to relax and have fun in a positive way.
Rumours are that next year the production will be Snow White……who knows? 🙂
The show will be a sell out and another great example of the extra curricular stuff you can get involved in free of charge and free of stress at Edge Hill!
Hope Easter was good for everyone, keep all the questions coming! : )
Have Taken a short passage from the University main website for you all to take a look at (posted below this paragraph). Hopefully you are part of these record breaking figures! I look forward to meeting you next year, especially History students. As always, keep the questions coming because I know this can be a stressful time in your life & I will do anything to make it run more smoothly!
Numbers of UCAS applicants have increased by 11.28%* compared with 2011, compared with a reported sector-wide decline of 7.25%. Attendance at applicant open days has been at record level across all subjects.
The University’s Vice-Chancellor, Dr John Cater, said: “These figures are very pleasing and demonstrate strong demand across the full range of our degree programmes. Despite the continually changing nature of the higher education sector, the things that are important to Edge Hill remain constant: providing a high quality teaching and learning experience; and raising our profile nationally and internationally. Our increase in applications is testimony to the hard work that we put into achieving these goals.”
The past 12 months have been one of the most successful in the University’s history, ranking top in the north-west and in the top four amongst English public universities for graduate employability, top two in England for students’ personal development in the 2011 National Student Survey and being shortlisted for the prestigious Times Higher UK University of the Year for the third time.
The University is one of the most financially secure institutions in higher education, reporting a fifth consecutive surplus of £13.8m and providing the capacity for continual investment in the student experience and teaching and learning facilities. Following the opening of the £13.5m Student Hub last year, work has commenced on expansion plans worth £55m, which includes an Olympic-standard sports complex and further on-campus student accommodation.
Lucky we have officially the number one careers / volunteer service in the UK then!!!
