I'm Hannah, a Journalism, Media and English Literature student originally from Nottinghamshire. I've been involved with Cardiff University's student magazine, Quench, whilst at University and I've been really keen to get as much work experience as possible. I've completed the Cardiff Award also.
Yaaaaayyy!!! I’VE GRADUATED!!!! I can safely say it has to have been one of the best days of my life. As I sit here trying to think of the best way to tell you about it, I realise I won’t be able to do it justice. It’s the small and cliche things like wearing the Read more
So that’s it!! I’ve done the coursework, survived the exams, got my results and now my undergraduate degree is done! I am now supposed to be making my way in the real world – that is the scary bit!! (and where the hard work starts). I’ve had a number of questions asked of me now Read more
Ok, apologies this one is a little late! It has been relatively intense lately what with the dissertation deadline.

So this is another one for those psychologists out there. This includes a couple of the REALLY COOL (yes I am a psych geek!) things that you will learn on the course here at Cardiff. If you’re not looking to study psych, then I encourage you to still read on, as it makes for interesting Read more
Hi all, So now my future job plans are looking towards a career working as a researcher. Now this is pretty ideal, as the course here at Cardiff is very much centered around research. So what can I say the course has given me when I am looking at my career options, and what learnings Read more
Hi all, So this month has gone ridiculously quickly – as anticipated! And boy is it good to be back! I’ve got to admit I was a little nervous about returning to university from placement. How would I settle back into being a student? What would it be like living with a group of new Read more
Hi all, So this week I’ve started the moving in process ready to embark on my final year. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone! It genuinely feels like I moved to Cardiff for the first time only yesterday. I really can’t believe it’s three years! In fact the other day, I went Read more
Once again I’ve been asked a really good question this week via Facebook that I thought was a good idea to share with all of you. That question revolved around how to prepare for studying Psychology at Cardiff and in particular what reading can be done before the course starts. With subjects like Psychology, you Read more
