What’s it really like being a History student at York?

Hey, I’m Laura! I am a third year student studying for a BA in History at the University of York. I just wanted to let you know about the things I get up to as a history student, and what it is like studying at York. In my blog, I’ll mention how I plan my week around my seminars, dissertation work as well as having fun out and about York. University is about opportunities and making the most out of the experiences that are offered. I’ve been lucky enough to be selected to work on projects for the National Railway Museum and the York Museums Trust. There is absolutely no pressure to get stuck into everything, but university is the perfect time to try something new, pick a module that covers a topic you haven’t covered before, join a new club- I joined college football to meet new people and I love it! Just remember to enjoy yourself and make the most of what’s on offer as 3 years can go really quickly.

How to survive as a mature Archaeology student

Hi! I’m Cath and I’m a 3rd-year archaeology student at the University of York. I wanted to share some things I love about being at university and what life is like for a mature student parent at York! The archaeology department is like a family, and it is looking forward to welcoming you! The staff are knowledgeable, inspirational, and kind, and I have never felt more at home than I do at King’s Manor. My blog will cover some of my favourite things about studying at York, with some information about studying as a parent, while working, and the effect the Covid-19 pandemic had on studying (and how fantastic the department was under the circumstances). I’ll also talk a little about commuting, and what a typical week looks like for me! I hope you’re looking forward to joining us!
