A BA in Brexit Blues?

The prime minister of the United Kingdom triggered Article 50 on March 29, beginning a two-year transition process wherein Britain will depart from the EU. The exact date of separation is planned to be the of March 29, 2019 – exactly two years from now. As a consequence, there will be a number of profound […]

My experience as… an Erasmus student

Upon receiving my Leaving Cert results, I spent some time reflecting on the precariousness of what constitutes a “success” in these exams. I eventually came to the conclusion that the success I achieved in my results rested entirely on the fulfillment of certain conditions, both long-term and short. Much like that gloriously recurring biology experiment […]

What Irish unification means for students

  At first the debate over unification may seem too abstract to be of any real concern to students. This is far from the case. Irish unification relates to a number of student issues including fees, student debt and Erasmus. As a student from Northern Ireland I am only too aware of my stake in […]

The case for going off-books

It’s December; the Toy Show has passed, the nights are longer, and the procrastination more intense than ever, meaning only one thing — Christmas is on the way! Once a time for peaceful reflection, the four week break now spells a beautiful season of Roses-gobbling, Netflix-binging, essay-scrawling and exasperated research-doing on whatever mind-boggling aspect of […]

Letters to home: Far from bored in Bordeaux

“There was, however, the sneaking feeling as I boarded the plane that I needed this. I needed this push out of my comfort zone, this lovely bubble I had created for myself.”   I must admit that at the end of August when Erasmus was looming I wasn’t looking forward to it. Frankly, I didn’t […]

Letters to Home: Leuven, Belgium

“Hi, what’s your name? Where are you from? What do you study? Do you know…” Taking the plunge and venturing off on Erasmus for the year is a lot like being a Fresher again, except you’re in a foreign country and it’s a lot more difficult to go home on the weekends. That being said, […]

March for Education: observations from afar

This week, Dublin city came to a standstill as thousands of determined students made their intentions as clear as that Wednesday morning and marched for Free Education. They tossed aside their timetables, they decorated posters with gusto and witty captions. Their voices echoed in the autumnal sunshine and their rhythm of their marching feet, alongside […]

Student life in Helsinki

        It is indeed a unique and wonderful experience for this year’s freshers to walk through front arch and begin their college years. Starting your university life is a wonderful and special feeling that you will never experience again, or at least that was I thought up until now.   Just over […]

Erasmus: Declassified

  Before I left for my year abroad, in a little corner of my mind, I naively rejected the belief that Erasmus wasn’t going to be a typical college year. Naturally, it was going to be a little different, I thought to myself, but what I had in mind was Trinity with some pasta sauce […]
