University Posts

These are all my posts about my further education. I started with BA (Hons) History with the Open University in 2010 and graduated 2015 with a first class degree.

I am currently studying Twentieth Century History MA at University of Liverpool.

Below you will find all of my university posts. They have been written over a number of years and reflect my thoughts, fears, aspirations as I continue with my education. I have always been a busy parent and worked as I have been doing my degrees, so the posts reflect the difficulties of this. If you have any queries you can email me

This post is a full-on 'review' of sorts of the course, written after I had finished. I tried to pack this full of hints and tips to help people, as I really enjoyed this course but it was quite the rollercoaster ride! I hope this is helpful. I had just had Alice when I started this one, so it was quite good to just switch off from new-mum mode and stick my head in these books.

  1. You are doing really well! I did the first module - Introduction to Social Science, all I remember was it was all about Cardiff but never got further than that. I think it was because there wasn't that contact with other people I found it hard to stay motivated.
