I decided to study Marketing and Advertising at university as I come from a business background but I’m also quite creative. However, I didn’t realise that some content of my degree would actually require me to be skilled at designing visual content and using programs such as Photoshop and InDesign!
Another semester almost finished, which means I’ve almost completed my degree in Marketing and Advertising! Last term I had a project to look at the Marketing Strategy of Ryanair, and this term I had a project to look at Branding Through Celebrity Endorsements.

During my second year of university I lived in a shared student house with 7 of my friends; so many people, I know! But looking back at it now, there really was 10 hilariously annoying things, that today I can laugh at, but at the time were so annoying *sigh*. If you live in a student house you’ll probably be able to relate to all of these, and if you are thinking about living in a student house don’t let me put you off…
What is Fresher’s Week?
In short, an alcohol fuelled week to ease you into university life, and help you to mix with people just as drunk as you are.
Fresher’s week is most probably the best week you will have at university. And what makes it even better is that you get to experience fresher’s week every. single. year. (until you graduate of course)
So whilst you are getting yourself ready for university, packing your room up and meeting your new flat mates and course mates on Facebook, I have put together what I consider to be the top 10 things you need to know about fresher’s…
