✅ Third Year Bucket List ✅

✅ Third Year Bucket List ✅

Seeing lots of graduation pictures on Instagram made me so excited to graduate next year, but equally made me come to the scary realisation that in one year I will have finished my degree and will be entering the real world! With worries but also excitement about what to do next, I know already that I will miss being a student at Plymouth so much. I cannot believe how quickly these 2 years have gone by (I know everyone says it, but it genuinely feels like I moved to Plymouth yesterday), and I feel like I’ve achieved and experienced so many things which are memories that I will treasure forever. I want to make the most out of my last year here at Plymouth, so I thought I would make a list of things I want to make sure I do. Hopefully I’ll read this back next year and tick them all off!

🏖️ A BBQ at Bantham Beach 🏖️

🏖️ A BBQ at Bantham Beach 🏖️

A few weekends ago, we were blessed with sun in Plymouth! Our instant reaction was: we need to have a BBQ on the beach! Being so close to the sea, there is nowhere nicer to enjoy nice weather than in Devon. Lots of people went to the Hoe, but as a couple of my friends have cars, we decided to take a trip to Bantham beach. Located about a 45-minute drive from Plymouth, we took a detour to a supermarket on the way to pick up some BBQ essentials and of course the disposable barbecue itself!

I want to encourage anyone who may be scared to commit to a degree in the arts, or who may be scared away by the job prospects, to apply!

✈️ Art History Trip to Florence!

✈️ Art History Trip to Florence!

The trip really made me realise that Art History is where my passion lies, and I really want to work as a curator in a gallery like the Uffizi in the future. Due to the time of the year, lots of artworks were having restoration work done to them, so it was really interesting seeing the work that goes into preserving these artworks too. Thank you Art History for the most amazing trip!

📅 A Day in the Life of a Student

📅 A Day in the Life of a Student

I’m currently in my second year of BA (Hons) Fine Art and Art History, and I thought it might be useful to explain what studying at university here in Plymouth is like! My course is a little different in the sense that it is a ‘joint honours’ degree, so I do exactly half the Fine Art course, and exactly half the Art History degree. I graduate with one whole degree qualification, but in two different subjects. What I love about my course is that every day is different.
