Welcome to Degree Diaries, a new series on my blog where I will be reflecting upon my feelings at different stages of my degree. I am studying BA English Literature at a UK University. 

I have just finished my first week at university. Studying at degree level is a change, but it is a welcome change for me. At A-Level, I was used to studying a Shakespeare play for months on end, but at university, I will be studying a Shakespeare play in a week. The expectation is that you read faster but deeper. I am well aware that hard work is ahead, but I am ready for it. The concept of having three years stretching out ahead of me that will shape my life and I can push myself as hard as I can excites me. The lecturers at my university are extremely passionate about their subject — it truly is infectious. Being part of an academic community is really special, as you're surrounded by others with similar ambitions and interests to you. This time last year, I only knew of two people who had similar interests to me; now, I am truly content when I am sat in a lecture theatre with nearly one hundred people that are just as passionate as I am about English Literature. I honestly couldn't be happier studying a subject that I love.
