A Day In The Life Of An English Trainee

It’s well known that arts and humanities students have, for better or for worse, very few contact hours. That said, I reckon English could give the rest a run for their money in the ‘what’s a lecture?’ league table. Indeed, life as a third-year English student involves careful management of my own time and cracking…

Day in the life of a third-year Physics trainee– My commercial...

As a third-year Physics student, I was looking to develop some skills applicable to the commercial world rather than just a research environment, but I wasn’t able to spend 12 weeks doing an internship. When choosing my modules, I discovered that the Physics department offered a module called Team Project, where you are put in…

So … You’re considering studying Sociology

What is Anthropology? Anthropology asks what it means to be human, a social animal capable of extraordinary imagination in a rapidly-changing world. Anthropology is an exciting discipline that challenges us to rethink who we are, where we came from and what our place is in the world today. The discipline ranges from the natural and social…

A Day in the Life of an Earth Science Trainee

Being an MSci Earth Science student, no two days are the same! After 3 years of attending lectures and practicals, with roughly 17 hours of teaching a week, this year is completely different. I am conducting my own Research Project on a volcano in Iran called Mount Damavand, and the other modules I am doing…

Libraries of Durham

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a student facing the impending Easter term must be in want of a study space. Whichever method of examination your degree requires – whether trial-by-exam or essay-based evaluation – every Durham student will undoubtedly find themselves in need of a place to work, write, and/or procrastinate which is…

A day in the life of a Natural Sciences trainee– Arranging...

Being tied to a single subject like Maths or Computer Science never felt quite right to me. Studying Natural Sciences, on the other hand, allows me to select modules across a range of subjects that pique my interest. I’m able to tailor my education to what works for me and to what enables me to…

A day in the life of a Law trainee

Normally I don’t have many contact hours and often manage to get away without having any 9 am lectures, but today was not one of those days. At 8:15 am, I dragged myself out of bed after having snoozed my alarm three times – I’m not a morning person, so only just managed to make…

A Day in the Life of a Computer Technology Trainee

It’s my fourth and final year studying Computer Science at Durham and I am already trying to juggle and prioritise multiple pieces of coursework, compulsory meetings and workshops with my favourite things to do outside of work. I’m looking for a seat in the bustling Calman Cafe, grappling with my laptop, running some neural network…

A day in my life: Over 2000 km far from house!

Morning workout It’s 7 am and my first warning alarm has gone off by now. I say warning alarm because I usually set about 3 to make sure I actually get out of bed. By 7:15 am I am up and groggily make my way to the bathroom while trying not to wake up my…

Working as a Research Study Researcher

I graduated from Durham University in the summer of 2018 with first class honours in Natural Science (Biology and Physics). I spent the following summer and autumn working in a local shop in my hometown. Whilst the nostalgia of being back at home was nice for a while, I was keen to begin a career…
