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,
