Back To Uni!

After a year of saving up, I’m back at UWE for a Science Communication Msc.

So far it looks like an amazing opportunity, but also an incredibly scary one. The sheer amount of things I’m going to learn this year, and the amount of new experiences I’ll get to have, feels awesome. On the first teaching block, just being in a room with people who care about similar topics and ideas was enough to get me feeling more motivated.

On the other hand, I’m not confident in my ability to progress. I feel a bit overwhelmed by how challenging many of the assignments will be for me. Also, I feel like I rushed into the course; the other students are already older and have professional experience, while I only have my first degree and no evidence of what I can do.

So right now, I’m not sure what I’m going to be doing, or whether I’ll succeed. And not knowing isn’t something I’m good at.

One thought on “Back To Uni!

  1. I’m sure things will get better soon – you’ve managed to handle a degree before, so you can take this in your stride! Having a degree under your belt is no easy task, and this won’t be either. But your enthusiasm for the subject should pull you through and you’ll have a great time! Good luck with the rest of your year :)
