The Truth About Uni|Why I Chose Everything

Welcome to my new blog series/collab!

So as you may have gathered, the series is called ‘The Truth About Uni’ and it is in collaboration with some other great girls (links will be at the end).
Each post in the series will be a different uni-related topic. With this collab we hope to give some of you a heads-up of what to expect, some tips and just share some of our experiences…hope you enjoy!

My Course

The course that I’m studying is Law and I’m currently in my second year.
No one I know is a lawyer so I pretty much applied to the unknown. I started thinking about what I wanted to do when I was 14…you know when you have to make a my-world-of-work account and take that quiz?! (Is that still a thing?)  And a lot of the careers that were being suggested I just didn’t fancy. I think it was maybe my guidance teacher that suggested looking into law, so that’s what I did…5 years later and that’s what I’m doing.
My degree is 4 years long and then if I want to be a practising solicitor, I have to do the Diploma of Legal Practice which entails some teaching and a 2 year traineeship in a law firm (note: this is for Scotland).
I still haven’t really settled on a clear cut answer as to why I decided on law.
One thing I like is the wide range of areas of law you can go into. For example, you’ve got commercial, criminal, family, succession…and a lot more! It just depends what grabs your attention and what you could spend time on. Because trust me, you will spend A LOT of time reading up on cases and legislation.
Another reason I like studying it is because it’s very clear-cut and structured. There’s no experiments or formulas, you look at the law and you apply it.
If you have any more questions about studying law feel free to leave me a comment or send me and email (link is down below)

My University

I’m studying at the University of Aberdeen. I chose this uni for a couple of reasons:
1) Aberdeen is my home and I didn’t feel ready to move away. All my friends were staying at home and I didn’t feel ready to leave my parents.
2) Aberdeen Uni is actually pretty high up on the teaching scale for law so I’m quite lucky that I had a reputable uni in my city.

I like my university – the buildings are historic but classic. I’ll try and take some photos of some of the classic buildings for a later post, but just have a quick google search – some of them really are beautiful!
But besides looks, I’ve come across some great lecturers! One that I currently have doesn’t just explain the law, he tells you how to use it…how to be a good lawyer. And I like gaining knowledge from those who have had the experience. You can tell that some of them really care about delivering some fresh, respectable lawyers, and that’s important to me.

Once again, if you have any questions about anything I’ve talked about, feel free to leave a comment or send an email to – glamourreel@gmail.com

Welcome to my Blog!

whatta-melonHello and welcome to my new blog – The Glamour Reel 

So if you have came from seeing my Twitter posts (@GlamourReel), then you will know that I recently had a blog over on Blogger. After doing some research, I have decided to give WordPress a go.

I’m still getting used to A LOT of new features and customisation so please bear with me! But I hope you will enjoy seeing my latest posts on here.


My Blog

My blog will consist mainly of beauty and lifestyle, but I will also be throwing in the occasional fashion or movie review blog post. I used to do movie reviews on my older blog but I’ve decided to mix it all together and give blogging a proper go in 2017!

A new post will hopefully be coming tomorrow (no, I’m not usually this organised but this isn’t a proper blog post to me).
