Week in the Life of ...

Philip Mahoney
BA Flexible Combined Honours with Study Abroad (French, Chinese and International Relations)


Only 1 French seminar so I make this my French day. I usually spend the afternoon working in the library then I have athletics training in the evening.


I have 2 lectures today. I work between my two lectures in the Foreign Language Centre. In the evening I will typically go on a job with my running club.


I usually meet up with my Spanish friend over a coffee to practice my Spanish oral. Then I have a seminar. Afternoon is athletics training. Evening is sports social night. We typically meet in a pub for a few drinks then out to the night clubs.


My busiest day! I have four seminars – which doesn’t sound that much but is actually exhausting. Given I would have worked all day – I typically have a relaxing evening and maybe go to the gym.


I only have one class today so I use this day to catch-up and get ahead of work before the weekend.


Weekends always vary. Sometimes I’ll go on the park run (a 5km run open to everyone) that takes place down at the Quay. Sometimes I’ll do a day/weekend trip to see friends in other universities. Sometimes I’ll just go into town and do some grocery shopping! Either way, I’m rarely broad.
