Academic life A typical week in the maths department involves lectures, seminars, problems classes and possibly a practical. This term I am taking 5 different modules, all of which are ones that I have chosen. In first year, everyone does the same modules so that you can get a good introduction to the main areas … Continue reading So, what do maths students actually do? A week in the life of a Maths student.
Hi, I’m Will a third-year student in my final year of studying for a degree in Maths. So far, this term has been a busy one for me.

I’ve just sat my third set of university exams, we have … Continue reading I’m addicted to coffee… and in about 10 months you will be too
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

You’ll go from being a big fish in a small pond to a big fish in the Atlantic ocean… …and all the other … Continue reading How to uni…

The third and final year of my degree is, in theory, the year I make plans for after university ends. In theory. The reality has actually been very different, but it’s not the end of the world! I always knew that I wanted to come to university. I wanted the experience of living away from home and … Continue reading Back to the future
University is a great way to try new things and discover your passion for something previously unknown; whether it is an academic topic, a sport, or a society. At the end of my first year, I went to the University of York Swing Dance Society’s first ever lesson, simply because it was free! Since then, … Continue reading Keeeeeeeeep dancing!
