Scarlett Parr Reid, Print Science Editor, sings the praises of slowing our paces in a world that doesn’t stop.
Has staring at the same library walls for hours upon end left you feeling unmotivated, disillusioned and frankly, a little bit dead inside? It may be time to say goodbye to Forum Marketplace and venture out into the great unknown, as one of these lesser known study spaces may be able to evoke the inspiration […]
There are two possibilities of how my day will go when the sun rises every morning. In this hot weather, it will either be a backdrop for a perfect day in the park, or it will cause an immediate ‘why don’t we have air conditioning?’ rant. After the long cold winter that seems to have […]
A page sits, half-scrawled with ink; the slight silence plays host to a haiku.
For me, revision self care is always about being able to take breaks when I need them. I find it impossible to concentrate if my head’s not in gear, so I tend to take breaks when I feel I need them. This can vary from day to day, depending on what I’m studying, or just […]

“T uition fees: like rainy days, hangovers, and crippling debt, it’s something we university students just have to accept. Although, £9000 going on £9250 for 30 weeks of formatives, summatives, soul-crushing feedback and exams? Sometimes it seems slightly ridiculous.
