Induction at the University today, brilliant set up and although today was very much going through the motions it was great to get that insight into Uni life.
Having never been to University I expect one area I will really need to work on is academic writing – although I have been writing business proposals, plans, project docs etc for years I get the impression this is quite different. Time to start pestering the tutors (on their recommendation).
A superbly international student body, out of approximately 75 Marketing orientated students there are only about three English. I think this is great as we really will get a global perspective and input into the programme.
Did have a bit of a shock walking round the campus and seeing all the Fresher stalls, music, face painting etc – I really am a mature student!
Tomorrow we have a 3 hour lecture on essay writing to look forward to – bring it on!
