So… you are at this page because you want to know more about studying at Manchester?
I am here because I want to tell you all about what I have been up to and what being a University of Manchester student is all about! First of all, let me give you a quick introduction. My name is Hannah and I am currently studying for my masters degree in organisational psychology within Manchester Business School. I am 21 and have come to Manchester straight from my undergraduate degree where I studied Psychology and Counselling.
I am originally from Manchester and wanted to move closer to home to do my masters degree but I knew that I wanted to study organisational psychology. It worked out quite perfectly for me that one of the best business schools in the country did the exact course I wanted to study and in my home city! Yet, on my first day at Manchester I sat down in a classroom with students from almost all corners of the world, some of whom had never been to the UK before never mind Manchester. I think that has been my favourite part of the experience so far, meeting new people, some who have lived in the city for years but you have never met before, and others who are here for the first time and have all new experiences to tell you about.
We are now in the tenth week and time has flown, I am so busy! Particularly with our extra Level A and B course that qualifies us to administer occupational tests. Next week we have all our assessments for that module so it will be a busy week with exams and practicals, but we get to finish the week with a Christmas party organised by our tutors which we will all be looking forward to! Then we will be enjoying Christmas and coming back in the New Year which I’m sure will be even more exciting when we start new modules.
I know I could keep talking all day about everything I have experienced at Manchester so far but I will keep updating you with all that is going on with our course and in the University!
