Work Experience: Interning

I hope my fellow classmates remember this time as fondly as I do. We had just finished our first year at university. Hand ins were complete, exams were non existent due to our heavy coursework load and the weather was finally heating up from the cold winters of Edinburgh. But, we had one last obstacle….

Thoughts on Lockdown

Lockdown sucked. Not just for me, but for everyone. I felt stuck with being inside all the time and of course not being able to see my friends. This was further exasperated by a break up and the very quick change from being completely independent to being back in the house and obeying someone else’s…

Interview Help

It has definitely been a while since all of my university admissions interviews. In fact it has been nearly three years. However, during my boredom of this lockdown, I found all of my interview prep notes and thought it would help another creative student out. Some of these interview styles must have changed in the…

Loughborough University

I wasn’t so keen on Loughborough University. It has a very sporty atmosphere which does not suit me at all (if you ever met me, you would understand this).

Regents University Fashion Show

This was my first ever fashion show and I tell you it didn’t disappointment. We visited this fashion show as a result of a girl at school winning a competition. This was a fantastic opportunity to see the type of work as a result of the Regents fashion course. The fashion show took place in…

Leeds University 

I visited Leeds a couple of weeks back and I really liked the city. However, for me, I didn’t like the Textile course there. Leeds is part of the Russel Group universities and has a large emphasis on research and has academic qualities. Course: This is a four-year course instead of the usual three as…

Edinburgh University

I visited Edinburgh this week and I loved it. I know I have only seen one other university, but I feel like I have already made my decision. Course: This is a four-year course instead of the usual three It is a very structured course with the opportunity to work independently and in groups Only…

Falmouth University

A couple of weeks back I visited my first university, Falmouth. It is a beautiful seaside town where the university campus is only 10 minutes by bus from the centre. I was not able to get pictures of the university but I have some beautiful pictures of the town which I will attach. If you don’t know…

University Decisions

It has now come to the time to make decisions about a university, which is very daunting to a 16-year-old. I have decided to write a post about all the different universities offering the course of Textile Design for people in my position as well as for me to clear my mind about what each university…
