I really made the most of being in university and the opportunities I could attain. It’s more than just a university for studying, it’s a whole life experience. I used the library a lot, and I also made use of the student services for advice and guidance if I was ever in doubt. The lecturers were great and I would not be the confident young lady I am if it wasn’t for them. Special mention to Mike Leat, Hilary Duckett and Jasmine Kelland.
Besides your course there are so many opportunities to grow and evolve as a person. There’s so much room to try new things and conquer some of your fears, it’s a great stepping stone before you enter into the real world and they will ensure you are as well prepared as you can be.
My main challenge was group presentations – although many students detest doing group work you have to be mindful of which way you look at it. At the end of the day the lecturers are preparing you for the real world in that you don’t choose who you work with, neither do you choose whether or not to present a case study or do research. I’m grateful I went through all that.
