From Quidditch to Veg Soc: My Clubs and Societies at Durham

I can clearly remember my experience of Freshers’ Fair in my very first week at Durham – although it’s likely that I’m confusing that with attending it again in my second and third year (they were giving out free burritos this year – you can’t blame me). The first time was a whirlwind of grabbing…

My year abroad, and how the pandemic has affected my plans

As you may know, the third year of all language degrees in the UK is dedicated to spending time overseas, developing your language skills and immersing yourself in the culture of the countries whose languages you study. This has been a bit different this year due to what has been happening in the world. In…

A day in my life – Second-year Law

A typical day for me might, or might not start with a 9 am lecture. I actually prefer when they do – academic commitments are a much better alarm clock than the sort you can just keep hitting “snooze” on! If I’m being particularly productive, I’ve done some reading for the lecture already, which helps…

The transition from school to university…..

Or… How many books should I be reading a week? In my last blog post, I took a trip down memory lane to address my sixth-form self, and as I’m getting quite a few questions around this time of the year, I thought a great follow up blog would be to talk specifically about how…

What’s being a student really like?

My Durham journey

“It’s not what you have but who you are” Your time at University flies by and you rarely take the time to reflect on who you have become because of it. Like so many students who are reaching the end of their degrees, I have started to reflect on my Durham journey (something I am not…

A day in the life of a (very keen) Classics student

A note is necessary before we start – I absolutely love studying and am an unashamed workaholic (we love a bit of nerdiness). This little snapshot into my day to day life may seem, but is not meant to be, daunting. What should be taken from this, is just how much you can do here…
