Applied Business Management

Final Semester…..

I finally made it into my final semester! I have only one class left (consumer psychology), and my dissertation and I will be finished… It has all gone so fast and feels like I only started my final year a couple of months ago!

Here is a quick update on what I have been doing so far in my final semester. If you follow me on my Instagram I am sure you already have an idea!




I have been spending most of my weekends in the library, the weekends are the best because the library is usually empty! As you can probably see,  I am doing my dissertation on a hospitality management subject, as I am using my placement year to collect data from. I am currently working on my Research Methods and trying not to get behind as I don’t work well under pressure at all!


2. Trips around the UK


My friend and I took a break from the library to Hadrian’s Wall! It was really beautiful, it was only a 30 minute drive from Sunderland and had some amazing views!


I also went to York, here i am with my friend Sam at York Minster, which is the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe.


3. Lives Online Photoshoot!


All of the Lives Online Bloggers recently had a photoshoot for the prospectus! We got the full treatment, including getting our hair and make-up done! It was a really fun day so keep a look out for us when the prospectus arrives!


4. Consumer Psychology

As I said earlier, my final class is Consumer Psychology, I did psychology at A level so I know quite a bit about it already, the course is really interesting so far! The assignment is also really fun and different from any of my other modules, we get to analyse our own key purchases over the next few weeks and analyse the factors influencing our deisions.
