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…

My Supported Progression journey

The last few years of my life have come full circle. I began my journey to Durham way back when I was in Year 12 on Supported Progression, an access programme for local students who may otherwise be disadvantaged in applying to university. The week I spent on a residential at Van Mildert college in…

I lobbied in Parliament: here’s what it resembles …

Alternative title: The day you realise MPs are human beings too Ok, now, before anyone assumes anything. No, I’m no one important. Like, at all. What I DO do, though, is fight for things that are bigger than myself, and important. When I saw the opening to become a ONE Youth Ambassador for the UK,…

A snowy day without lectures at Durham University!

Abbie DavisHello, I’m Abbie! I’m a second year, and since starting at Durham I’ve been filming the madness that is my life as a History and French student! Alongside my degree and my YouTube channel Kabs Craic, I also have a radio show on Purple Radio, my own column in Buzz Magazine, and I’m Head…

A day in the life of a first-year History trainee

I am a member of the College of St Hild and St Bede – I think my favourite thing about Hild Bede is the close sense of community. Being neither a member of the Bailey nor the Hill colleges, it is easy to forget Hild Bede, but that just means that we are much more…

Day in the life of a Classics trainee

Thursdays are by far my busiest days; ask any first-year Classics student, and they’ll say the same: we have two of our core modules and two language classes. It’s quite a contrast to my Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays when I have no lectures at all. I found it hard at the beginning of the year…
