University Series #2 My Journey

 I’ve just had my place confirmed! It was annoying as I knew I had the grades, I just couldn’t wait to see it all in writing so what better to write about in the second post of my University Series!?

 If you didn’t already know, I’ll be starting at Manchester Metropolitan University in September studying PR and Digital Communications and I cannot wait, even though I’ll be living at home as I live close to the campus, boo! Before I created amyjanealice, I wrote a blog called The Journey To University as part of a college project, and on there you can find all sorts of information from how to apply, to what to look for at universities, to what to take with you if you’re moving out. I don’t write on that blog anymore, but for any students who will be first years this year, there’s information that would be helpful to you and also to people who are still in college, it might be useful for you to have a look as I find it’s always best to think about things like this way before it comes down to it! You can see this blog here.

Now I have my confirmation, and my student finance is pretty much sorted, I can start getting even more excited and getting everything sorted for September! You can expect to see posts about my first day, freshers week. things about my course and the university itself, tips for prospective students etc. When I mentioned this on Twitter I had a great response so I can’t wait to get writing more about the journey as it all begins properly!

Is anyone else starting MMU this year? Or university at all? What kind of posts would you like to see? 🙂

Thank you for reading,

Amy x

    Congrats! I went to MMU as well and I loved it! There were some not so great times as well but that's part of the whole experience. Will you be in the Business School then? You're lucky that you're from Manchester as you'll already know all the fun/cheap places to go! 🙂 xx

      Aw yay I can't wait! University is all about the experience so I'm expecting ups and downs! Yeah I'm in the business school, it's all very modern haha. Yeah true! I'm hoping to discover more too. Thank you for commenting 🙂 xx

      This post is making me feel all nostalgic 🙂 Fresher's Week is SO knackering. It's hard being sociable all the time and making extra effort with everybody. Yeah the Business School is cool but a bit too grey for my liking. Yeah there's always more to discover or new ones pop up 🙂 x
