Emily A - Week at a glance
My week at a glance
Hi, my name is Emily and I have just finished my first year at the University of Hertfordshire on the Film and Television Production course.
On Sundays before the week starts, I like to go through the lecture slides and make any notes in the margins of my notebook to prepare for the lectures I have that week. I also do any directed reading at the weekend to get ahead. However, now that our lectures are online, I just listen to and make notes on all my lectures at the start of the week.
As my course is quite practical, we have workshops throughout the week, as well as seminars, so I always try to do a bit of extra reading before those sessions to prepare.
My friends and I also work on our own film projects outside of the course, so it is important to be organised and complete classwork early to be available for these projects.
On a non-course related note, I also like to meal prep at the start of the week, by washing and chopping fruit and vegetables and keeping them in the fridge, so that I always have healthy snacks on hand, as the week gets busier.
I also have a part-time job freelance editing, so it is important to me to plan my days so that I can fit in my editing work alongside my uni work.
