Hello again fellow accountancy students, I’m back! And this time I’m on LOCATION…
Yes, I’ve escaped the daily grind. I’ve packed up work for the long weekend, successfully shirked all usual responsibilities and an hour and a half’s train journey from Central London later, I find myself in the serene and blissfully peaceful settings of Reed Business School.
I have to say, first impressions were that I was absolutely bowled over by the grounds and facilities here at Reed. I mean I know I’ve predominantly come here to prepare for exams but honestly, I’d be just as impressed if I’d have come here to holiday! With the stunning gardens, roaming deer (yes, wild deer live within the grounds), heated pool and even tennis courts – there’s a lot that could keep you busy if you didn’t have exams looming. But I do and so I’m ready to get stuck into some real work for the next 4 days and I feel that this environment is definitely going to be conducive to that.
I think the best thing about doing a residential course and in such a pleasant environment, is that you can really focus on just the learning. Because the stresses of everyday life are removed it leaves more room to absorb the stuff you’ve been trying to cram into your brain whilst juggling all of your other responsibilities. I’m not going to have to think about work, or cooking, or other chores in my normal daily routine because everything here is catered for – all I have to do is turn up.
I’ve got a 9 o’clock start tomorrow for the first day of revision and question practice (breakfast from 7:45) so I think I’ll sign off for now – back tomorrow to let you know how it all goes.
Ursula xo. 🙂
