The length of the holidays when you’re at uni is slightly absurd, by real-world standards, but its existence is well justified. What you choose to do in your 3 months of summer holidays can be either very fun or a great CV booster or both. Last summer I made a fair effort at ticking the ‘both’ option. The … Continue reading What to do over the holidays
“No, LD, a Learning Disability nurse!” A couple of colleagues and I, all Learning Disability student nurses, went to a recent conference with Health Education England (HEE). We met fellow students from London, Hull and Northumbria and many others to discuss the attraction of Learning Disability nursing, the course we are undertaking, any problems we … Continue reading Wait, so you’re an elderly nurse?

Let me explain a bit about how people celebrate Christmas in York. A Christmas market, which is situated in York city centre, was … Continue reading Christmas in York
If A-Level is difficult – is a Degree Still for Me? On the one hand, I loved studying A-Level Philosophy. The chance to explore the ideas of some of history’s best philosophers was a whole new opportunity. So if you’re studying A-Level at the moment, and loving it, you’d have good reason to.

Make a realistic time … Continue reading Top 5 tips for revising for January exams (and Christmas fun!)
This being my first blog post here, I’d better start basic… I love being at York. Corny as it might sound, I really have been so grateful for my time here so far. I had a pretty unhappy time towards the end of school, and actually went to another university to study Anthropology before leaving … Continue reading Why I love Music at York

At the time of writing this post, I have just finished my shift as a Student Ambassador working at one of many upcoming interview days for prospective students at the Law School. Few Law Schools in the UK request students attend an interview, so it can be off-putting to even apply for those that do! … Continue reading An Interview at York Law School
Hello! I’d like to take some time in this post to talk about societies. During high school and sixth form I’d never really been part of a “club”. I did guitar lessons and used the gym, but I never did things as part of a team. I was your stereotypical un-sporty, maths geek type that … Continue reading Societies
