Almost a year since my previous blog post so I will fill you in with what has been going on in my life!
Last year shortly after my blog post I successfully applied for a position at Buckle Consulting, a local web design company close to campus. The job was ideal: web design being a familiar area to me, course related, part-time and working from home. I have recently finished my employment at Buckle Consulting to focus on my third year project (COMP3020), which is slowly consuming my free time.
I helped out the ECS UCAS tours through the winter and spring and will be doing the same again this year, so if you’re reading this I may well be showing you round!
In terms of the third year course, the workload has again increased with a gradual transition to the majority of the work being self-motivated. This year we were allowed to select the modules we wish to study (minus a compulsory Management module as I’m studying the MEng Software Engineering course).
I’m also attempting to gain a Graduate Passport this year, which involves building up 200 points from a range of activities in extra-curricular activities. The Graduate Passport scheme is something definitely worth considering when joining the University and over three years 200 points worth of activities should be a doddle to attain.
I think that brings me roughly up to date so I will leave it at that for now.
