If you didn’t already know by my countless tweets, blog posts, Instagram posts and even mentions in YouTube videos (oh yeah, I have a YouTube channel now), I started uni. I know, right? Bet you never would have guessed. In all seriousness, I started my undergrad degree in Communication and Media just over a monthContinue reading “Five Reasons To Live At Home While Studying”

For those that have known me for many years, no one could have ever expected me to take such a route in life (I mean it’s only a year long, but it could well shape my life as I know it), and honestly IContinue reading “A Day in the Life of a Marketing Apprentice”

And trust me, there will be more posts about that process very soon.Continue reading “What to Look For at a University Open Day”
