What am I up to?
Updated: Jul 27, 2018
In short, I've finished my 2nd year at university and I'm taking a year out for my placement.
I'm at the University of Bournemouth and if anyone is thinking of going there I could not recommend it more. I love it down there, I mean not only is the uni campus cool with some really good resources, the course is good and the town is amazing with plenty of things to do. I’m sure I’ll write about it in more detail at a later date but to give you a taster, there is a beach, in fact it’s the 4th best beach in Europe, there are a tone of shops, including New Look, Primark and Top Shop and then there is the nightlife. Which is just the best! There are events going of every night of the week and there will always be a student night somewhere, which is a very lethal thing!
As I said, I am on my placement for a year so I will be living at home, which isn’t too bad really. I mean, I get home cooked meals which are to die for and their free! I currently work for Toyota in Epsom. Even though I’ve only been there for a month and I am really enjoying it and defiantly feeling part of the team. Also, having a company car doesn’t hurt!
Again, if anyone is debating whether to take a placement for a year or even just for the summer, I would recommend it 100%. There are so many people leaving uni with great degrees nowadays and you need something to make yourself stand out. It also gives you a chance to see what its like to be in the real world while still having the support you need.
