Course: BA (Hons) Primary Education Studies

Hi I’m Rhiannon or ‘Rhi’ / ‘Breeze’ - as people sometimes struggle to say Rhiannon and the second part of my name interests most people because it’s unusual. 
I am currently in my second year studying Primary Education Studies.
The thing I love about my course is that I’m gaining loads of employability skills such as public speaking, team work and academic writing. These will benefit me if I go on to do my MA in sociology and feel really supported by my lecturers. 
I am part of three societies, Wildlife, Sustainability and Yoga, although I do not get much opportunity to go to them all the time due to clashes with my lecturers, I stay in contact with them via email and Facebook. It’s obvious that the people who run the societies are passionate about what they do because they always keep me updated and make me feel included despite not having met some of them in person.
The thing I love most about the ARU is how much opportunity there is to earn an extra income via our Employment Bureau, while being flexible around my time table. It makes me feel supported and financially secure throughout my time at uni where my student finance may not be enough. 
In my spare time I enjoy painting, baking/cooking or going into town for lunch with my boyfriend, who I also met at university which makes my experience even better. 
One of the most interesting things about me is probably my ability to multi-task, and by multi-task, I mean watch Netflix while scrolling through Facebook. But I can cook alright too.
