Making my final university choice (Shaheen)

Would you believe me that I simply googled ‘Cheapest University in the UK’? If you are a home student there is no difference in tuition fees, but for an overseas student like me it’s a major factor. £15,000 vs £22,000? I picked £15,000 in a heartbeat. I asked these questions to myself before choosing a…

What I am doing to make myself more employable (Amber)

For many people at university the only things on their mind are meeting deadlines and getting the grades. And that’s how it should be! It’s important to focus on uni work and make the most of the experience, but as the years progress you might find yourself thinking about what’s going to happen after university….

Coping with deadline stress (Georgie)

Deadlines are stressful, there is no denying it. So much work and research goes into them and more often than not, not enough time to give it your all.  Pressure to get everything done, and to a high standard, all while coping with all the other elements of life can take its toll. Firstly, don’t…

My experience commuting to university (Toby)

Commuting doesn’t exactly have the best reputation. Especially up North. We’re looking at you Northern rail. They have, however, just been nationalised, so hooray for that! Even though, I’m just a little bit bitter because Northern acquired the service in 2016, when I started university and will now be renationalised one month before I finish…

How my final year is going so far (Georgie)

So, here I am, a few months into the final year of my undergraduate degree and how is it going? I don’t quite know yet. I started the year by telling myself I would stay completely on top of all my work. It is final year after all and it’s time to get organised. Honestly,…

My plans for 2020 (Georgie)

Happy New year to everyone, it’s 2020!  The beginning of a new year, not only that but a new decade, ‘the twenties’, which makes it feel like a new chapter in a whole different way. Is it going to be ‘roaring’, we will have to wait and see. What’s 2020 looking like? Well for me,…

How my final year is going so far (Izzy)

Final year is a bit stressful. The jump from second to third (final) year is huge, and it’s difficult to describe if you’re not in that position. The workload has increased massively and it’s all a bit demanding – however the end is in sight. As a Combined Honours student, I’m not doing a dissertation,…

How my first term has gone so far (Heather)

Let’s be real – I didn’t think studying a MSc programme would necessarily be a walk in the park. However challenging at times the first term of my course has been, it’s also been fun, enlightening, and successful. Here’s a lil play-by-play of how I’ve found my first term studying at Manchester Met. Freshers Week: Like almost…
