Lets talk dream jobs...

Well pretty self explanatory.. I am a journalism student, so I want to be a journalist! SHOCK!

This is a question that you get asked continuously throughout your life and I don't know whether you ever stop getting asked the question really. We all go through the stages when we are younger of becoming a teacher or a nurse or a train driver or an astronaut… and in all honesty I think our dream jobs change all the time! I know mine do!

I finally decided about a year ago that I wanted to write, I wanted a job where I could be creative and write. When looking round universities, degrees like psychology (which I originally thought would be my dream) was just not and then I happened to sit in on a journalism lecture and knew this is what I wanted to do.

So what area do I want to go into? Honestly I have no real idea. I love the idea of being an investigative journalist and uncovering the truth in all corners of the world and its an area that really grabs me but equally PR is very enticing.

I suppose only time will tell as to what I go into and it will probably change next week again.
What is your dream job? Or career aspirations?

Love Niamh x

How do you begin to explain one of the best experiences of your life? Seeing the world (well 5 countries) and making the best memories. This is my journey interrailing around Europe with my friend Amy.

Lets start at the beginning in Paris, which we were lucky to see, considering we narrowly made our train. On your interrail ticket it says to arrive at the station half an hour before your journey, be there an hour before! We arrive in Paris and after wandering up several wrong streets we find our hostel, Which is basic at best and the facilities were indescribable and its probably best I don't describe the shower anyways... Nevertheless we set out for the afternoon in true tourist spirit and saw as much of Paris as we could and getting the most candid photos possible. The Eiffel Tour, the Musee du louvre and the arc de Triomphe all featuring. The second day in Paris was spent in Disney land where Amy achieved her ambition in owning gold sparkly ears. To say this day was magical wou…

Applying for university...

I applied to university in October 2017 and will be starting in September 2018..hopefully! I was accepted on to 5/5 of the courses I applied to with 4 conditional offers and one unconditional offer, these offers included 2 russel group universities. I did university tests and completed an individual interview as well as a group interview. This was a highly requested post and as the next year are starting to look around universities and complete UCAS applications it was a perfect time to write this post.
Personal Statement Your personal statement really needs to stand out, you need to show that you are excited and engaged in the course but NEVER use the word passion!!! (Everyone uses it and its better to prove you have a passion rather than just stating it.) Its good to do an introduction - why are you excited about applying for the course, show an interest in a particular part and show your knowledge. The second paragraph you could talk about your current courses - what you have enjo…
