End of summer 2012, looking forward to my final year

Since the Olympics I've been busy working with the enquiry unit team during clearing, and now it’s only a fortnight before the new term begins. Where has the time gone?

A side from working, I was able to get home for the bank holiday weekend and spend some time with my family and friends. It was a lovely weekend, I was spoilt being taken out for dinner and some long overdue catch ups were had, even though it was only for a short time it was worth it. Hopefully I’ll see them again soon.

But now back to the start of term, something for everyone to remember, whether you’re a new or current student, is registering. You need to log onto your online portal and click on your online registration and follow the instructions. You will receive emails giving you instructions of what you need to do to register, as well as your username and password. If you haven’t received this or are unsure about if you can register contact the Enquiry unit on 020 8331 9000 and they’ll be able to help you out.

I have been online and completed mine and am awaiting the arrival of my new 2012-2013 student ID card with that special photo of myself I love so much…….or not love in my case. Alongside this I had to make the decisions on which course option I was going to choose this year, I've considered the options carefully and will make sure that when I start this option course it is the one for me, my tutors are very good and give us the chance to change, if the space is available, to choose another option. The option I have chosen is sporting events, this is an area which over the last year I have become more interested in and would like to expand my knowledge further.   

Although it’s a scary thought thinking this is my final year, I’m really excited to get started again, it’ll also be great catching up with everyone I haven’t seen all summer. I have been preparing for my dissertation already, looking into my research topic further and how I am going to undertake my research. Also, I am looking into some further work experience opportunities and finally, to be extra prepared I am looking into getting my CV up to scratch so I can begin my job search when I finish university and enter the big bad world.  Which is proving a bit of a challenge, but I will be sure to use the Guidance & Employability Teams (GET) services to help me do this.

All the best of luck to everyone returning and starting university, remember to enjoy your time cause it will go quick, even if daunting at first you will have the time of your life!  J
