In my blog I hope to inform prospective students hoping to go into Forensic Psychology/other relevant disciplines what to expect in a typical week: with a few social activities mixed in! I also hope to shed some light on the amazing support from the psychology department and all the targeted help they give.
My favourite thing about university is the constant opportunities of independence to build your confidence. You choose what course you want to do, which modules you take, and where to take your knowledge. Psychology at York University really helps you take hold of where you want your future to go.
Christmas at #York is utterly magical. Between the twinkling lights and the infamous Christmas markets, even the Grinch would be feeling #festive! 🎁 With many events taking place, such as @uycu_ ‘s ‘Carols at the Minster’, and @uoyhistorysoc ‘s Winter Formal, Christmas is all around you! Even just taking a stroll through the Christmas markets, or the Kirkgate Christmas Tale Street at @yorkcastlemuseum, you can’t help but smile!🎄 Not only picturesque, the atmosphere in York during the Christmas period is super wholesome! Beautifully decorated #Christmas trees and delicious food stalls fill the streets, attracting visitors from all over the world. The air is full of happiness, and the smell of doughnuts- although I don’t know which is better!🍩 So, grab a Baileys hot chocolate and take a ride on the carousel…🎠 I promise you won’t regret it! Or just spend the afternoon inside decorating your house in #Christmassy pyjamas! The opportunities are endless. York is the place to be during the winter months. My only advice would be to make sure you bring a bobble-hat and gloves🧤, it’s pretty cold up north! However, enduring the north-pole like conditions is 100% #worthit to experience a York Christmas! ✨
