So the final year of University is getting closer and closer… to say I am slightly apprehensive would be an understatement! I will be going back for my final year of my Business and Marketing degree, at the start of October 2018. So far I have been trying to prepare myself mentally for possibly one of the most stressful years of my life to date.
I go to Coventry University, and it has been an experience, and so far so good with my grades, (surprised myself massively not going to lie) hopefully this will continue into my final year as I really want to smash it!
I think getting back into the studying routine is quite a challenge when you have had so much time off doing nothing. However, part of me feels like I am ready to go back as I feel like a routine will do me some good! Although, there will be a lot of work this year, I am normally quite good at organising myself for my deadlines and doing everything on time. Also, wasting my time in the Cosy Club sat on my laptop pretending I know what I am doing.
I don’t know about you, but I am one of those people that needs to start an assignment as soon as I get it as I stress if I leave it to the last minute. So I start early just for my sanity’s sake haha. I have picked my optional modules today, is it bad to admit that I chose a module just because it was all coursework and one less exam? Probably, but if there is any chance of me reducing my stress level then I am going to do it… The other module is 50% exam 50% coursework which could be worse I guess.
It is quite daunting to think that when I leave University in May, that I will have to go out into the real world and get myself a job. You alway’s hear that when people leave Uni they struggle to get jobs after they finish, so fingers bloody crossed that I do alright, else I will have to limit the amount of clothes that I am buying (tragic but true).
I have already started to think about my Dissertation topic and what I would like to research. I am focusing my study on Consumer Behaviour and how or if we are ethical consumers online. I don’t want to be stuck with a topic I get bored of half way through and can’t be bothered to look into, so with this one I feel I will stick too. I definitely need to get it right or god help me… I am going to make sure I remember to take time out this year though and chill, as sometimes I overdo it and don’t give myself time to rest and then my brain just turns to mush haha.
If you are going back to uni let me know your thoughts and how you are feeling about it, because I know how stressful it can be! Any questions, please feel free to ask.
