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.
Social media is now well and truly part of our everyday lives. I am on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat and Instagram. Of course, I primarily use these to connect with friends and to share things about my day, but since I’ve been at University (studying for a Journalism and Media degree) I’ve thought often about Read more
There are countless – and endless – lists online advising you on what is best to take to university when you’re leaving home for the first time. I don’t want to state the obvious – I’m sure you’ve thought about taking your clothes, shoes, etc. and that’s why I’ve made a list of the things Read more
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

It’s an individual project that you see through from conception to completion, and Read more
I feel that this is going to be quite a deep and reflective entry. It’s probably because I’m nearing the end of my degree – it’s that last week of lectures, all that’s left is my dissertation and finals – and because of that, my thoughts are becoming quite reminiscent of my time at Cardiff.

So this is part 2 of me being super geeky. Some more of the REALLY COOL things you’ll learn on the course. If you haven’t yet, read my last blog post – part 1. It basically explains that as humans, we fall prey to a whole host of biases when we make decisions, and without Read more
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
