It is so hard trying to find motivation to revise for these last few exams. The end of University is so tantalisingly close – I only have two exams this semester as I picked mainly coursework modules, my dissertation is handed in, and my last exam is in three days. I’m currently sat here writing Read more
I am currently job hunting, however it is ridiculously hard to balance this with final year exam revision. I obviously want to dedicate the majority of my time to my University work, so that I can get the best mark that I’m capable of…but I am also so very aware of my dwindling student loan, Read more
I have to walk through first year halls to get to my flat, and I had a bit of a weird nostalgic moment last night. As I was walking down the path, littered with playing cards presumably from drinking games, and hearing a truly awful group performance of Bleeding Love coming from one of the Read more
Hey Guys, I’m currently in the middle of writing my Speech and Language Essay, my Human Factors Essay, and my Final Year Project, so I’m trying pretty hard to balance my time. Luckily I much prefer coursework to exams, so I’m actually quite thankful that this year I am doing more coursework based assessment. In Read more
Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t posted anything for a while, I’ve been a little stressed with exams, then post grad plans, and now my Final Year Project write-up. Last time I wrote about how you totally can apply for a PhD, even if you are feeling a little doubtful. This time I want to cover Read more

I know I post something like this pretty much every Semester…BUT it is a good way of reminding myself, and everybody else to do these things. It is very easy to forget very basic stuff when you’re in the last year of your degree. I also like to tell myself I have learnt and grown Read more
Hello! Sorry it has been a few weeks before I posted anything, I’ve been stressing about revision and doing a lot of testing for my Final Year Project. I have now collected all of my data! Woooo! I just need to remember how to do Statistics aha…help. My supervisor is going to talk us through Read more
I’ve been dreading writing a blog about something like this, as it would mean I was terrifyingly close to the end of my degree. Help. I initially went into Psychology hoping it would lead to a career in Forensic Psychology. However, as soon as I got to uni I completely forgot about those plans and Read more
Adjusting to final year has been interesting. It feels a lot different to second year, and it definitely feels different to being on placement.
