Going through the last week of lectures for ITMOC leaves a bittersweet taste since I’m both excited to start my summer dissertation but also low-spirited since now I’ll naturally see the rest of my classmates less. The class’s chemistry exceeded all initial expectations I had; and after spending the last 8 months working alongside my […]Read More My ITMOC experience – Paul Anastasiadis
Lectures are an entirely different format of learning than what you will be used to in college/sixth form and, with upwards of 10 hours of lectures a week, you will want to make sure you are getting the most out of this contact time. DON’T try writing down everything the lecturer says. Not only is […]Read More Do’s and Don’ts of Getting the Most Out of Lectures
There truly is no place like home. We’ve all come across this phrase at some point and depending on how we view it we’ve all accepted or rejected it to varying degrees. Personally, I’ve embraced this sentiment (especially my mom’s food and my sibling’s banter!) more so after going to university, but I’ve learned that the […]Read More Managing time on and off campus

I hope your week has been as exciting as mine!

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)
As a postgraduate student, I really can’t describe how fast the time went by. It feels like yesterday I was excitingly starting my first day of the Masters orientation, but now 6 months has passed and it’s already the end of Lent term. During 6 months of study, I might say that I have learned […]Read More End of Lent Term and Hey! It’s My First Spring!
Have you ever felt tired of all routines, assignments, never ending classes or group work? You feel like you need fresh air, yet you’re too lazy to go outside the city or do not want to spend too much money going out? Then… why don’t you explore our own city, Lancaster!

At the beginning of the term, assignments that I (and we?) have might not be as much as when the end of the term is coming. For me, when I have some spare time to travel during the weekend to refresh my mind, I sometimes travel to cities around Lancaster. Last week (1st week of February), […]Read More A Weekend in Sheffield
