Trashy Bags, Social Enterprise-Ghana

So as some of my readers may know from a previous blog post I was lucky enough to go on a field trip to Ghana at University. The trip was based at the University of Accra where we worked alongside the Regional Institute of Population Studies and undertook data collection, analysis and then presented our findings to our home…

What’s next Graduate?

This question has to be the most dreaded and hated question for all recent graduates and I can’t count how many times I’ve been asked it since graduating in July. Why is it that people expect you to go straight into a graduate scheme or in a great company, it is not that easy! But…

I’m officially a graduate!! 

So the last few months have been an absolute whirlwind and I can’t believe I’m now able to say I’m a graduate!! My final semester at Southampton went really well even if it was a bit of a come down from my semester abroad in Australia. Easter break turned into dissertation writing every single day and…

Thinking of studying abroad?

So I was lucky enough to be offered an exchange at the University of Adelaide in Australia for the first Semester of my final year of my BSc Population and Geography degree at the University of Southampton. Firstly I was apprehensive of accepting this and was therefore choosing between Adelaide and Amsterdam (very different I…

Row row row your boat 

So as I’m sat exhausted during a heavy week of training with Reading and Henley regatta creeping up I thought it was appropriate to write about my sport at university. Yes you guessed it: rowing. Upon joining university I always wanted to join and become involved in a sport society. In freshers week I attended…

The post-exams slump

Last week when I finished my exams I went straight to….bed. Unfortunately I was the first in my house to finish my exams so I didn’t have anyone to celebrate with that evening. But it actually wasn’t a bad thing considering how tired I was. I came back and just laid in bed completely exhausted…

Australia here I come!

Recently I received some amazing news that I have been accepted to do a semester abroad at the University of Adelaide in Australia! In my first year of University myself and my course friends went along to a study abroad meeting looking at the prospect of partaking in such an amazing opportunity. A year later I…

The end of exams is near 

So it’s the time of the year when university students hibernate in their rooms or the library eating their own body weight in food and hate on life.  Everyone dislikes revision right? I’m one of the many people that starts revision by finding a million and one things to do bar revision-procrastination at its best. From…

Freshers week, University

Freshers week is what all upcoming students nervously await for. Two weeks of little sleep, 3am kebabs and making temporary best friends in the toilets (it’s a girls thing). Honestly, the weeks after freshers you will see many ‘fresher friends’ around campus and will nervously hold off the smile as your unsure if they even…
