Adjusting to final year has been interesting. It feels a lot different to second year, and it definitely feels different to being on placement. I’m finding myself forgetting where to find everything, I even forgot my login for the computer in the first week, I’d been away from uni for so long. The biggest issue Read more
Hi All! Sorry about the late post, I thought I would wait until I had finished my first week of final year to write this one. So final year has officially begun and I am terrified. Not only does this year count for so much, it’s also the year that I have to make some Read more

Hi – my name’s Chloe and welcome to this little corner of the internet where I, along with other Cardiff students, will be sharing our thoughts and experiences of university.

So it’s approaching that time of year. The moment most students can’t wait for, but most parents are dreading. It’s time for you to leave your comfortable family home for university. For a lot of people this means moving away from home for the first time, and most probably beginning at least a three Read more
