A few hints & tips!

So, it is getting closer to getting prepared for your decisions for university! Just thought I would mention a few hints & tips to help you make the very important choice which you will have to deal with for the next 3 years!

Open days

Contact uni to arrange a campus tour or a session taster day. You can find out more information regarding courses, finances and accommodation.

Speak to tutors

Discuss with your tutors & listen to any advice they have for you which may be useful in making your choice.

Plan, plan, plan!

Find out as much information as possible. Where is the University? Is it in a good spot for getting essentials? Can you get access to transport easily?

Decide wisely! I hope this helps 🙂

Easter Break

I have thoroughly enjoyed the last three weeks off for Easter!

I had a lazy week, another week back at home and another week at a temporary job which is something I would like to mention today.

I would personally recommend any student to get themselves a part-time job whilst studying. It works out so much better for you financially, keeps you on your toes and also looks good on your CV to see how motivated you are due to working while studying.

This week I worked at Speedy Hire in Haydock for a few days doing food service. The people I met are lovely! And even though I had no idea where I was going, what I was going to be doing or who I would be working with, I settled in instantly! I have to give a special mention to Ben the chef, particularly for his very fine cooking, especially his unique creations such as pie, peas, mash, gravy and brown sauce all mushed up in a BARM 🙂 sounds appetising right haha? I had such  a laugh there but also learnt that you should give a go at everything! When I first received the phone call to find out where I was working, I almost backed out due to the distance and the fact that I was going to the middle of nowhere to work. But it was so worth it in the end! I can’t wait to go back there!

See you all soon! 🙂

Snow joke!

So after having a week of beautiful hot sunshine, it is forecast we are soon to have a week of snow! How quick things change!

Make sure a visit is paid to the duck pond over those snowy days! It may be a bit chilly but it’s a sight you surely should not miss!

And with the weather being a bit poor, it is an ideal time to sort out work & timetables etc. to stay on track of your assignments. Make use of bad weather as well as good!
