Year Two

Summary

Over summer I was able to have a great time relaxing by going on a cruise and an unexpected trip to Texas. I also got the chance to prepare for university by looking into some of the modules that I will be taking in second year. To have a full detailed view of my summer 2016 visit one of my earlier blog posts. After receiving a strong 2:1 in my first year and incredible signs of improvement in the later assignments in the summer it has meant I am ready for the second stage in university. I started my second year in early October 2016.

Modules

List of Modules: Doing Human Geography Research (Dissertation preparation), Key Methods in Human Geography, Social Geographies, Globalisation and Development, Barcelona Fieldtrip and Understanding Cities (Town Planning Module)

Field trips

Barcelona Fieldtrip Module (More to follow)

Societies

I intend to continue my Newcastle Geography Society as I intend to do the summer and winter ball again. It would be great to get the chance to go on the NGS trip to Amsterdam as I missed out on Dublin last year. I also want to join another society like the photography society and possibly look into other sports societies.

Experience

During the summer I became a mentor for first-year students joining the university and currently keeping in touch with these mentees.

I also took part in volunteering during the Summer 2016 Great North Run by taking photographs. After a positive afternoon, I was asked to do more volunteering around Newcastle Universit, which I’m looking forward to.

In January 2017 I will be looking at routes into teaching.
