Degree: English Literature
"I am about to finish my second year doing an undergraduate degree in English Literature at the University of Bristol. University has provided me with lots of opportunities to pursue my love of writing, which I hope to one day turn into a full time career. In my spare time I enjoy strolling around museums and galleries, cooking and have recently begun taking yoga classes, from which I am yet to reap any reward apart from pain!"
Degree: History & Politics
"I'm a second year History & Politics Undergraduate at the University of Warwick and an aspiring journalist, amongst other things. I hold the post of Deputy Editor at Warwick's student paper and elsewhere I blog with the Huffington Post UK and The Student Journals. I've been known to venture on to student radio and TV from time to time too. Otherwise, I'm a full-time badger enthusiast, armchair political pundit and rugby fan. Journalists have a human side too, you know!"
Degree: English and Drama

I study English and love reading and writing, and ultimately aim to have my own novels published in the future, as ambitious as it sounds!
