Choosing a university: my advice

Congratulations! You’ve made the amazing decision to choose to go to university and experience student life like never before. Here’s three reasons why the University of York was the right choice for me.

A week in the life of a Sociology student

I’m Quratulaien, and I’m a third-year Sociology student at the University of York. I wrote this blog post for students who want to know the general day-to-day life of a sociology student. In the blog I mention how I spend my time as a student, social events you can be a part of outside of studying, and how I tried to make the most of everything available to me. There is a lot to enjoy about university, and I can understand how scary it can be not having an idea about where to begin. I hope my blog can make things a little easier for you and put things into perspective!

A week in the life of a second year Theoretical Physics student

My name’s Elliott, and I’m a 2nd year Theoretical Physics student at the University of York. This blog will give you some fresh insight into what it’s really like to study physics at York. My blog will be a rundown of a typical week for me at the university, detailing the different modules/labs I attend on a weekly basis, my opinions, and what you can expect if you come to York to study Physics. I’ll also give a brief introduction to a few of the non-academic things you can get involved in around the department, such as PhysSoc, or the Rocketry society, all of which I love!
