About Me

Hey guys, my name’s Kelty and I’m just about to go into my second year studying Psychology at the University of Greenwich.
How I ended up going studying at Greenwich isn’t exactly straight forward, as originally, I had a deferred place at Staffordshire University, to study Forensic Science and Psychology. As it was a deferred place it meant that I had a whole year off before I had to attend, which I intended to spend working for 6 months and then travelling for the rest, it really didn’t work out like that though as I spent money as fast as I was earning it :p.
As my gap year progressed, I began to dread uni more and more, and actually refused to think/plan about starting, as every time I did I would get this sinking feeling in my stomach. I think a large part of why I felt this way was because of the sheer distance Staffordshire was from London, and my reluctance to leave my friends/family/bf etc….but as far as I was concerned I had my place and Staffordshire was where I would be going.
It was only until one day in the middle of June something just clicked in my mind, I was literally like ‘OMG.  London has universities. I can go there and stay at home’. The thought seriously had never crossed my mind before that I could go to a university in London. So that evening, without telling anyone, I contacted Staffordshire to withdraw my application and create a new UCAS application and applied for 4 courses at Southbank and just one at Greenwich just to feel space. As I had applied in June the Universities were under no obligation to even look at my application, let alone consider me, and as such I was turned down for all 4 courses at Southbank, but luckily Greenwich accepted me onto their Psychology course.
Now, I realise that was one of the best thing that could have ever happened. Im so so so glad now that Southbank rejected me, as I got to experience everything Greenwich has to offer. I love everything about the uni life at Greenwich, from my course, to the social events at the SU to the general positive atmosphere that the campuses have, it’s hard to walk across campus without seeing at least one friendly face.
So yeah….because of that I am now an extreme believer in the saying ‘Everything happens for a reason’ as things turned out better than I could have imagined J …and yeahhh, I guess all that’s left to say is ‘Welcome to my blog’ J.
