    University Notes and Stationery

    So Uni has officially started again, although I’m not in until Friday, I know plenty of freshers have already started their inductions and lectures so I thought I would share some ways of staying organised and how I will be taking my notes this year- thrilling I know. This will just be a short one because really I just wanted to share my cute stationery with you. So in first and second year I literally turned up with a notepad and pen and copied up the entire 2 hour long powerpoint word for word every single week, which resulted in pages and pages of notes that I didn’t understand and…

    How to Save Money at University

    As my Back to Uni series continues, I thought it would be a good idea to address one of the biggest issues facing students, money. As the start of a new term brings a fresh student loan, students will fall into 2 categories, 1) they will have so much money they want to spend it all at once or 2) Their student loan doesn’t even cover their accommodation let alone living expenses. Lucky for me I fall into the latter category so I thought I would share with you some tips I have picked up in the last 2 years at Uni. Food Buy Food in Bulk and cook in…

    What To Take To Uni

    We are fast approaching Freshers week, some new students have already moved into halls but most will be making the move this coming weekend. As if potentially moving halfway across the country isn’t stressful enough you’ve also got to decide what to bring with you to Uni and try to cram it into the car. Now that I’m in my 3rd year I feel like I have a pretty good idea of what essentials you actually need whilst at Uni and what is a waste of money. Over the next couple of weeks I’m planning a Back to Uni series so if you have any requests or questions please let…

    I Finished 2nd Year!

    This year has flown by ridiculously quickly, it feels like yesterday I was moving into my new house and now I’m already thinking about packing for moving out and that’s because I’ve just finished 2nd year of Uni! At this point I’m getting slight palpitations about the fact I am 2/3 of the way through my degree and I still don’t know what I want to do with my life hahaha (that is a nervous laugh). So today I thought I would talk through some of my favourite things about 2nd year and just what it’s like in general, I touched upon some of this stuff a bit more in…

    Life at Uni

    So today I thought I’d chat about what it’s like to be at University in the UK and I’m assuming people will either read it and relate or they might read in disgust of how we students live. I’m currently in my second year, studying History at Sheffield Hallam University and I am never in uni. Literally I attend lectures and seminars for 9 hours a week and the rest of my work is just reading to do in my spare time (which I have a lot of). Now this is going to sound a bit rich coming from someone who’s never in, but uni can get really stressful, especially…
