10 Signs You Are A Joint Honours Student At The University Of York
So you were kinda indecisive when you filled out your UCAS form and now you find yourself with two course loads. Being a joint honours student at York comes with both advantages and disadvantages, sometimes in ways you didn’t even expect.
Here are 10 things that only joint honours students at York will understand.
1. You constantly have people asking you how those two subjects fit together.
2. Your timetable is ridiculous. A lecture in Wentworth followed by a seminar in Alcuin? Really?
If only you had a time machine…or were able to run across the lake…
3. This means that you gain a London cab driver-esque knowledge of campus shortcuts.
Maybe you’ll share them with others, maybe you won’t 😉
4. Your contact hours are like buses – none for the whole morning and then four hours of sitting in P/X/001
on Yik Yak studying.
5. Sometimes people ask silly questions like: “What are you doing this evening?”
“Erm…trying not to suffocate under the MOUNTAIN of work I have!?!?”
6. You have both a supervisor AND a programme advisor.
All the academic support…and nagging…one could want!
7. And you get to choose which academic hat you will be wearing on any given day…
It’s like Choose Your Own Adventure!
8. You have two different sets of course friends.
Which can be awkward when your two squads meet…
9. But it means you get invited to loads more parties 🎉🎉
procrastinate go out A LOT.
10. Although, you do have to sit through two graduation ceremonies…
Almost had you there!
