Reading Time: 3 minutes As this academic year winds up, I’ve reflected on my experience as a social media rep for the School of GeoSciences. When I applied last Autumn, I thought it would be a great way to meet people, create fun content, and gain some communications experience.    I heard about the position during a School of GeoSciences’ information session […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes Finishing up semester assignments and writing dissertation work has become quite different as of late.

This led me to the UK, to Scotland, and at […]
