We all know that university is hard. It is three years of focused study on whatever course you picked, but I think we can all agree that some years are harder than others.
Third-year especially. All of a sudden, you are given double the workload from the previous year. You have a dissertation to prepare for. God, that dissertation. It is probably going to be the biggest document you will ever write and you know that it has the most weigh-in in terms of grades.
There is all this expectation from you, and to top it all off, you have to start thinking about what’s next. A job? A Masters? This year is full of choices and hard work!
Although I found the first semester of my second year at university the hardest, my final year was equally as hard. It requires dedication and hard work.
I remember I panicked because I spent a lot of time on my dissertation compared to my other modules. But in the end, it all turned out fine. It all turned out fine! I graduated with a 2.1 from the University of Derby.
I’m happy with that, and as I said, I am now doing a Master’s Course. Ma in Writing for Performance at the University of Derby.
