I’m Molly and I am a final year student studying Politics and Economics at York! I want to tell you about why being a part of the School of PPE is an amazing experience and some other things about what it’s like to study one of the PPE programmes here.

What can you do to just relax and unwind after a difficult exam week and all the study you had to do for that beforehand? Well, I have a few personal … Continue reading Exams are over… what now?
Internships are like test drives. They give you an opportunity to test out different industries and to weigh up their pros and their cons, before you decide which one to pursue. I have always envied those with a grand plan for their life. Those who knew from the moment they locked eyes with a dolphin … Continue reading A dozen top tips for getting the most out of your internships
As I am writing, it’s two weeks until New Year’s Eve. My main concern is where I will spend it – probably at home, watching a reality show, feeling like I should have done something special.
