With Easter approaching most courses will have a couple of assignments to hand in and quite a bit of coursework to do. After race week, mentioned in my previous post, things in Cheltenham go back to normal. You’ll start seeing Easter bunnies and chocolate eggs everywhere because these are part of the Easter tradition in the UK.
Before the Easter break, especially for those, who like me, are living abroad, I recommend having sorted out housing for the next academic year. The reason for this is because after the break there’s only a couple of months left and if anything does go wrong or needs sorting out it’s better to have time left over than rushing it. Another benefit of getting it sorted out is after Easter most courses will be preparing for exams, with accommodation sorted it’s one less thing to stress about.
In March at uni you’ll also have to choose your module choices for the following year, it’s a good idea to get in touch with your personal tutor, again sooner rather than later, to discuss your career path and what subjects to take in order to get there.
It’s also a good time to start organising and thinking about internships and/or placements if this is applicable to you. Some courses they are obligatory in others they are optional.
March is also the month where most students should re-apply for their tuition loan through the British Government.
With any of the above the best place to ask for help again is your student Helpzone, with one based at each campus they are easily approached and very helpful.
