Hi there, I’m Nicola! I’m currently in my second year studying Management with Marketing with Industrial Experience. This summer, I will start my placement year, which is incredibly exciting! To secure a placement or internship (including summer internships), most companies have an application process that includes a job application form, CV and Cover Letters, psychometric tests, interviews, and finally an assessment centre. The aim of this blog post is to share my experiences with interviews and assessment centres, sharing some tips that I have found useful.
Super duper late but recently, I took over our Students’ Instagram account to show everyone what it was like to study English at Exeter. As the Beast from the East snowstorm came upon Cornwall just midweek and cancelled classes and meetings, it was a pretty chilled few days for me; a contrast to my usual hectic schedule! (more…)
Last week’s theme on our @exeterunilife Instagram account was WORKING FOR THE UNI. I asked students who work for the University or the Guild to talk about their experiences and shared their stories on Instagram. In case you missed it, here are the highlights of the week along with some general information about working on campus. (more…)
As a first year, one of my biggest worries whilst applying for Exeter was student accommodation. How do I apply? Are there catered halls? How easy is it to walk to the nearest grocery store? Luckily, the page for Residences on the University of Exeter website as well as the Accommodation tab on the Falmouth Exeter Plus website answered all my questions. With the help of the images and descriptions provided, I made the decision of applying for Glasney Student Village.
It’s that time of term… assignments piling up, deadlines approaching, exams on the corner. Days in the library seem long and daunting and you can’t even think about Spring break at the moment. Right now, take a short break (at least to read this blogpost) and allow yourself some time to relax, smile and be happy.
On the INTERNATIONAL DAY OF HAPPINESS, we gathered our ideas of happiness and answered the question ‘what makes you happy during this period of term’.
I worked in Italy, as a Communications and Marketing Assistant at an NGO. The experience wasn’t easy and I still think that studying is more enjoyable. But no one promised me that something would be easy. I’ve significantly developed myself as a professional and gained some important skills, such as flexibility, teamwork, the ability to plan and use my initiative. Also, because I was abroad, I’ve become more culturally adaptable, learnt to communicate effectively with people from different backgrounds. Placement is a lot of fun as well – it gives you the opportunity to travel and to meet new people!
