My college and me
Cari Davies will begin a Master's training course at the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies in September. Cari recalls her memories of A-level outcomes day and covers the many opportunities that shaped the woman institution knowledge, leading her to become president for the pupils' Union.
A-level outcomes time don't go just as I'd hoped, i did not have the grades when it comes to course i desired to accomplish at university and I keep in mind feeling like all my future programs had been ruined. I cried, a whole lot, We made many hopeless telephone calls trying to negotiate, I think We even begged at one-point.
But I became fortunate and got a location to study at Cardiff University and I also'm so pleased it worked out this way. After graduating with a 2:1 in European Politics and International Relations 2 yrs ago, I'm now going to begin my second degree at Cardiff; a Broadcast Journalism MA and I also won't give consideration to going anywhere else.
The step-up to University from college may be a daunting one and moving away from residence for the first time was certainly nerve-wracking, I'd small to be concerned about however, there is such to get involved with and I had been quickly swept up because of the buzz on university that makes Fresher's Fortnight so interesting.
There clearly was a diverse range of segments to select from on my training course and I also was able to make my selection taking assessment methods into consideration; i usually choose training to exams! There was also the capability to take several segments from another topic, which was surprise bonus. We elected segments in journalism and definitely loved all of them. I didn't realise it at that time however it ended up being the seeds were sown for my future option in a Master's level.
One of the primary facets contributing to my positive experience at Cardiff University was the pupils' Union. I tried an entire number of sports clubs and communities. We even joined up with the custard wrestling community - though never ever got round to actually attending a 'wrestle'. I sooner or later committed to the rowing club and Xpress Radio (the pupil radio station). It's often said, but the pals I made through both these are pals I'll have forever. I also attended my very first governmental demonstration, was published when you look at the student paper together with some of the best evenings away, all due to the pupils' Union.
The Union shaped such of my time at University that I made the decision to stand for election become among officials which run it. I became effectively elected Vice President for Sports in 2012 and the next year had been elected President associated with Union. I am truly happy that Cardiff Students' Union has just been voted inside top five of the best Students' Unions in the UK.
