  • Moving in and Fresher's Week: My advice

    Even if you think that you know exactly what to expect when you arrive at university, no matter how ready and prepared you may feel, you don’t. Having deferred my place to take a gap year, in theory I had...

    On a sunny day in late September I lugged my penultimate boxes up the final flight of stairs to room number 8. I slid the key in the lock, almost falling through the door with excitement. I ran to the...

  • Winter is Coming

    All I can say is why go to Iceland or fantasise about joining the Night's Watch, when you can stay and freeze in England. The temperature in Bath has dropped significantly, and as someone who cycles to their placement (due...
