A Week In The Life of an MA Student - Ally Vitale


A Week of Studying Abroad

Are you interested in studying a Master’s abroad? Curious about what a week in the life of a graduate student is like? I’ve whipped up the highlights of my week for you to get an idea.

I hope you enjoy it!


Today I went to the library straight after breakfast. My mega 3000-word Translation Theory and Practice assignment is due tomorrow, so I wanted to take today to find some extra resources for my bibliography and brush up my final paragraphs. The library closed at 6pm, so I relocated to the language lab. A lot of my classmates were in there already, and since the majority of them are not native English speakers, I ended up popping around helping them with spelling and grammar. Around 8pm, my friends and I walked across Roehampton Lane to our French friends’ flat where we had crêpes and played games. I needed a good laugh!
