Hi, I’m Malaikah and I’m a second year student studying International Relations here at the University. I wanted to give you an insight into the life of a student within the Politics department here at the university of york and tell you a little bit about why I love my degree. In my blog I will talk about my degree, what a typical week looks like for me, as well as how my first year modules helped me understand what areas of study I was interested in and how that helped me to decide on my second year modules. University is about exploring your degree subject and figuring out what you like and what works for you. It’s not just about having a set career path, it’s about exploring and embracing the options around you and making the most of your time at university.

Studying Global Development at York: a Field Trip to Saltaire
Hi! I’m Isla and I study Global Development at the University of York. I wanted to let you know what it’s like to study this degree at York. One of my favourite things about the degree is that it has a small cohort, this means we all know each other very well and it can make trips and group work super fun. Going on trips can be a really exciting part of the university experience, but we also learn useful things to implement within our work. Saltaire is a small village, and it is the first trip of the global development cohort. In my blog I’m going to talk about my experience of the trip as well as it’s wider impact on our degree and what offer holders can look forward to when studying global development at York.
