As a student, food shopping can be an event much like laundry: an annoying but necessary task that we often try do as quickly and with as little thought as possible. However, by taking stock of the various shopping options available in Lancaster, planning ahead a bit, and being a savvy consumer, you can save […]Read More Food Shopping in Lancaster
I remember finally booking my flight tickets, after reviewing every travel website in existence this time last year, and immediately thought of a million things I wanted to take to university (my new home :D). But the flight tickets came with baggage regulations and thus of those million things, I could only get the most […]Read More Travel List
Last week I completed the final exam of my degree and so for me that means that my summer break is finally here! At Lancaster University we get around three months off for summer and whilst this provides the perfect chance to take a break and recharge I have also found that the summer break […]Read More Ways to make the most of summer
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
Okay, I’ll admit it… I’m a bit of a nerd. I’m also horribly indecisive. And a chronic worrier. That combination of traits meant that for me, personally, it was very difficult to decide what I wanted to study post A-level. I enjoyed all of my subjects and simply wasn’t sure which one to choose. I […]Read More “Major” and “Minor” Decisions
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.

As both a mature student and somebody who’d never studied business before, I was naturally more than just slightly apprehensive about starting a Marketing degree at a university as prestigious and well regarded as Lancaster. What if I failed to understand any of the lecture content? What if I found the work too challenging? What if everyone […]Read More Adjusting to degree-level study
Lancaster is an amazing place yet it can also be a bit quiet, especially when you want to party or chill out. This does not mean that you completely ignore the social life and only focus on academic life. It just means that you study hard while studying as no other activities at Lancaster can […]Read More How to beat the blues at Lancaster during the weekends?
One of the best things I really like about the University is, there are many things one can try over their study here-especially when one is doing his or her Masters. There are two places in particular which I think is really important for a student doing a one-year course. My academic writing was […]Read More A few of the facilities the students are entitled at Lancaster University during their Masters
