Managing your time whilst at university - Francis (BSc Business Administration and International Relations)
Well, I had quite a lot of social activities, so societies, erm, I did joint football, I did join jujitsu, I joined some debating societies. You see, in the first year, you are quite eager to learn all these new things, so you join all these new interesting things. Then you find that you haven't got the time, so you have to start cutting back on things, and prioritise. So, think, firstly,' what's important?, it's my degree', then socialise, then these additional societies. So you start cutting out what you don't need and focusing on all the important things. So, I did that, and by the third year, I was much more relaxed. I didn't have to be rushing around, erm, running home and having a quick dinner, a quick lunch and then coming back to an event and doing this and doing that. Ok, it does help in that you meet a lot of people, and you make a lot of friends, doing that kind of thing, so, it's good for the first year, but I started focusing on the really important things, erm, which was my degree in the second year.
