So, year 13 comes around and suddenly your life plans need to be decided.

Okay, so it’s not that serious but it’s still probably the biggest decision I’ve had to make so far. My main advice would be to not panic, and I know how clichΓ© that sounds but honestly as long as you want to go to university, you will be able to get there.

πŸ’Έ A Week in The Life Of An Economics Student πŸ’Έ

So, my week begins with a 9am lecture on Monday – I know right, how unlucky! Besides being half asleep during the lecture, it is actually one of my favourites of the week. The lecture follows with another one straight after. Typically, after this I would chill for a bit because having two lectures straight on a Monday morning is quite exhausting. But this Monday there were birthday celebrations and so having a relaxed evening was welcome. Despite having a fairly busy day, it was a good one and allowed me to be productive as well enjoy myself.

Whilst going to University is an exciting adventure, the task of meeting deadlines and being on track with work doesn’t come easy. University is so different to school in terms of independence and assignments, and for me personally, meeting those deadlines is important as I want to do well at University. My preferred place of studying is anywhere where there’s not too much noise, but I also try to change locations from time to time in order to keep myself motivated!

🌊 Why I Chose to Stay in Plymouth 🌊

🌊 Why I Chose to Stay in Plymouth 🌊

As someone who’s lived in Plymouth my entire life, I’d say I know the city fairly well. Personally, Plymouth has a good balance of the things I’d want in an area. With the sea on one side and the countryside on the other, as well as the city in the centre, the location of Plymouth was a great asset to the University. One of my favourite places to go to is the Hoe. It’s the perfect place to go to relax and have some ice-cream with family and friends! In general, I would say that Plymouth has many aesthetically pleasing places to see, including Mount Edgcumbe and Saltram. I’d definitely recommend visiting these locations!

✍️ My Life at University So Far ✍️

The first week of University for me consisted of Freshers and Induction, and so meeting new people and preparing for my course is what I focused on. As an ambivert, or perhaps even an introvert, making new friends was neither easy nor difficult, despite my apprehension beforehand. What I had forgot was that everyone was is the same position, so everyone was doing their best to fit in and get along with each other. The welcome party on the Hoe for the business students was a great opportunity to introduce the subject and the leaders to the students. Despite my hesitation, the night was fun, full of entertainment and great music!
