Time for an update Thing’s are certainly hectic over here now that the mid semester assessment is coming up. I can hardly believe it, but I’ve almost been here for half a semester now. With 4 exams next week, and two other bits of coursework due very soon, I’ve been trying to focus a bit on more on the studies. Everyone seems to have quietened down a bit since the beginning of semester, but there’s still some fun nights to have.
One thing that I noticed is that, despite them being in the same faculty, the two schools that I take classes in here aren’t as synchronised together as I’m used to. This resulted in things like exam/lecture clashes and days off being scheduled after the exam week had taken place, rather than before/during. It seems here that most people pick a single major, and solely do the modules from that school, which is quite different to the amount of free electives we get back home.
Despite classes heating up, I’ve still made time to get a bit of travel in amongst it all. I find the location here amazing, theres things to see everywhere. There’s plenty of groups here that organise fun, cheap trips for international students. This makes it even easier for students to see the country. I’m in the midst of planning my winter break, which should involve some fabulous travel around Europe. Something exciting to look forward to throughout the rest of this semester
