University can be an amazing experience, living in a new city meeting new people and getting involved with activities you never pictured yourself doing can be life-changing.
However, once all the excitement of the first couple weeks wears off, you’re going to realise that most people are there for the degree at the end of the tunnel. With the Christmas break over and first semesters exams looming, I figured the best topic I could write about are my top 5 study tips!
“For 6 weeks over the summer of 2018, I travelled to Indonesia to a remote island called Hoga in the Sulawesi National Park. I spent my time there completing my open water P.A.D.I and collect data for my dissertation on Coral Reefs and their Interaction with Sponges.
This summer I was very fortunate to have a three-week amazing volunteering experience at Mankwe Game Reserve. My experience while I was out there was packed with fun filled activities.
To help you get the best start as a student here, we’ve put together some online activities called Hit The Ground Running.
Taking part in this programme isn’t compulsory and it’s not a test, it’s just a good way to prepare yourself for your studies and get to know your way around our online learning platform, studentcentral.
Congratulations to everyone who’s received an offer. If you’ve had your place confirmed, you’ll be able to enrol from today.
There are a few things to do before you get here, including the first stage of your enrolment and getting started with your email account and course materials.
Once you’ve enrolled online, you’ll also be able to see all the essential details about your course, including your start date, welcome events and a draft timetable.
See you soon!
Paper towels are more efficient at drying and cleaning hands, according to research at the University of Brighton.
Despite the rising popularity of hand dryers in public restrooms the research shows traditional paper towels do the job better – and leave behind less bacteria.
The scientists are now calling on hospitals and other health care facilities to consider withdrawing air dryers altogether.
The research was conducted by Biomedical Science BSc(Hons) graduate Samantha Crockett, now Senior Quality Assurance Microbiologist with GlaxoSmithKline, and Biological Sciences BSc(Hons) graduate Gregory Andreou, a microbiologist at Industrial Microbiological Services Limited. They were led by Dr Sarah Pitt, Principal Lecturer in the university’s School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences in Moulsecoomb, Brighton.
When your place has been confirmed you officially become a University of Brighton student!
