My First Year || Interview || Chantel

1. What course are you studying?
 I was studying International Business Languages with Management which is a long winded way of saying a joint  degree in Int. Bus. Man & Spanish. Now I'm in the process of dropping the Spanish part so I'm on a flexi course right now with no name!

2. Did you move into halls or stay at home?
I moved into halls and it was the worst decision ever. I couldn't have stayed at home as it was a new city but I really wish I got myself a flat because it honestly would have made the year 10x easier.

3. What have been some of your favourite parts of university so far?
The people! Through moving city I met sooo many people that I obviously couldn't have met otherwise - that part's pretty fab. And the opportunities that arose from moving to a new city too.

4. What have been some of the worst parts of university so far?
Um... most of it for me! The past year has basically been horrible with issue after issue and the stress of uni really didn't help. The main uni issue for me though was that a teacher decided she really didn't like me, like, at all. They're the reason that I'm changing course because I couldn't stand the thought of studying under them for the next three years! I'm hoping that cutting out that stress will be such a benefit for me next year because if second year is anything like my first then I'm dropping out!

5. Are you happy with your choice of choosing to go to university? Would you change course?
Yes and no. Yes because going to university has been a dream of mine since I found out it was a thing when I was 7 also, I'm the first person in my family to even complete high school (i.e. not drop-out), never mind go to university so I feel like going to uni will be a good thing to show to my little sisters when they're a bit older. But also, sometimes I feel like I maybe should have just carried on working in a company and eventually worked my way up into a management position. As for my course, I think I would have enjoyed it if it weren't for that teacher. Languages are my number one favourite thing of all time and I'm sad that I need to get rid of it from my degree for the sake of my mental health.

6. Do you have any advice for freshers or any other words of wisdom?
Please take note that my year is basically a freak year. Most of the people that I have spoken to haven't had a year from hell like I have and odds are, your first year will be great but I wanted to share my answers IN CASE something like this were to happen to anyone else so that you know that someone else has been through this and that it's okay - things happen! My best tips to give you are: work hard, make sure you take semi-regular trips home to get away from it all if possible, if you're moving to halls and have things you don't want to go missing keep them locked in your bedroom, and don't get alcohol poisoning during Freshers' Week. That's about it!
