Morning Time to wake up I start most mornings by forcing myself out of bed (like most students, I am not a morning person). I then get ready and organise everything that I need for the day ahead. Lectures and Seminars A typical day for me will either consist of a lecture or a seminar. … Continue reading A day in the life of a 3rd Year Philosophy Student

Day in the life of a Natural Scientist
9am – morning lecture I’ll try and be as honest as I can here. As a natural scientist student, you’ll get used to early mornings!! Studying multiple subjects means that your timetable is always pretty busy, so lie-ins are few and far between. A 9am lecture over in chemistry starts the day. We share all … Continue reading Day in the life of a Natural Scientist

A Week in the Life of a Languages Student
The first thing to mention is that languages at York are actually taught in the language you’re studying (that seems obvious, but it baffles me that so many other unis teach in English)! And you’re in seminar groups of around 15 students. This means you get a lot of speaking practice which is really beneficial. … Continue reading A Week in the Life of a Languages Student

What it’s like to study Computer Science at York
Modules and lectures As a Computer Science student, my typical week starts off with lectures. First year Computer Science students have about 16 hours of lectures & practicals sessions per week which is above the average and means we have less learning to do on our own. Our modules (uni word for ‘subject’) include ICAR … Continue reading What it’s like to study Computer Science at York
