Nick

Hey Everybody! My name is Nick, and I am a Swansea boy currently in his 4th year of Cardiff University as a medical student. My hobbies vary including, music, food, extensive retail therapy and exploring all the coffee shops Cardiff has to offer (with coffee becoming ever so important to me since starting my clinical years...)! During my time at university I have found brand new passions ranging from badminton to British Sign Language, and I can’t wait to begin sharing my experiences of studying at Cardiff. I hope to cover a few topics such as studying tips I’ve picked up along the way, what life is like as a medical student, how to make the most of your time at university, and some recommendations of things to do in the local area! If there are any suggestions of topics you would like me to cover, feel free to leave a comment on any of my blogs.
