Firstly, I should explain how I am currently undertaking the PhD in Organisation, Work and Technology (OWT) with a focus on […]Read More About My Degree: PhD Organisation, Work and Technology by Rachael Barrow
From the moment I set foot at Lancaster University, I knew it was the one for me, and there was no doubt in my mind that this was where I would end up a year later. After a long time scrolling through the universities course list, I came across ‘Management and Human Resources’. Initially I […]Read More About My Degree: Management and Human Resources by Millie Everingham
My two main passions have always been management and international relations (IR). I vividly remember watching the humanitarian response to the 2010 Haiti earthquake, while marvelling at the sheer scale of planning and organisation that would be required to manage an international relief effort of that magnitude.

Individuals, who are part of a movement, striving for change for a more sustainable world, surround me.

I hope your week has been as exciting as mine! Although it feels as if we, freshers, have been thrown into a whirlwind of work, at the end of the day, it’s comforting to know that you can head back to your flat, relax and share a laugh with your flatmates. Or, for those who […]Read More Is Being Catered Worth It? Or Am I Just Lazy?
My first year at Lancaster University was one of the most exciting and challenging experiences of my life. From beginning my first term making new friends, starting modules, and learning how to do laundry (easier than it seems; still no fun); to ending my final term performing real-life consultancy work for a large company, participating […]Read More Beginning My First Year at Lancaster University (Again)
