House Hunting

When house hunting there are many questions flying through your head: who am I going to live with, how many people are going to live in the house, which company am I going to use, are the bills included? And the most important question, where am I going to live?

The library isnt scary - in fact it helps you think critically by Ryan

The library isn’t scary – in fact, it helps you think critically

Many people when they think of a library, especially new students, dream up images of vast numbers of books and resources, stressed students typing furiously and scary librarians that will shush you if you speak. Let’s be honest the first two are true. However, libraries and librarians aren’t as scary or quiet loving as Harry Potter made us think, and certainly won’t shush you if you’re talking. Though one of the students who has 3 essays to submit by the end of the week may shush you instead.

How to travel on a student budget by Hannah

How to travel on a student budget

As a student it is easy to think that debt and loans prevent you from travelling. However the study abroad programme at Leeds Beckett enables students to travel and study at the same time in such a way that it may not cost as much as you think. There are also ways of saving money so that you can travel on a budget. Here are a few tips I have picked up as an exchange student.

Before coming to Australia I had been both travelling and been a student for 1 ½ years, but I had never been both at the same time. Combining travelling and studying in the study abroad programme uses a different set of skills that I have had to perfect in order to make the most of my time here, without falling behind with uni work. Here are a few tips on how to be a successful student and explore the world, for those of you who are considering studying abroad.
