Transition Into Student Life- Amelia

My name is Amelia, I am a 2nd year diagnostic radiography student at Teesside university. The course I am studying is a health and care sector, which means that my university experience is slightly different to most as half of my course is based in hospital placement. Diagnostic Radiography, simply put, is taking x-rays and other medical images (such as ultrasound) to aid in medical diagnosis.

Transition Into Student Life- Eddy

My name is Eddy and I study BSc (Hons) Psychology with Integrated Foundation Year at the University of Sunderland. Some may be unfamiliar with Sunderland but we are a City on the coast located in the north east of England just below Newcastle. This blog will be covering my personal transition into student life and any advice and top tips I think will be useful for any future student considering higher education.

Revision and Stress Management- Lucy

I’m Lucy a final year Politics student at Newcastle University. This short blog post will focus upon how current higher education students, including myself, revise for their assessments as well as staying mentally and physically well during stressful periods.

Managing your workload

Revision and Stress Management- Siouxsie

Revising for exams or assignments can be a stressful business, and if we don’t have healthy study habits it can cause us more worry and anxiety than is necessary. The good news is, if we can find out which study techniques work best for us, we can decrease our stress whilst revising and feel more confident in our chances of success. 

My name is Suzy, and I am a student at the University of Sunderland. I have been studying at university for several years now, completing a BA Hons and an MA in English studies before progressing to my current course as a PhD culture student.
