    ONLINE UNI & QUARANTINE - how we are handling it!

    Hi lovely listeners!

    Welcome to our virtual podcast. We of course are keeping our distance but are still eager to record podcasts. It's a bummer that we can't record them as easily as usual but we have the make the most of what we've got. Nina is literally on speaker so if she sounds a bit funny just go with it!

    We discuss how we are getting our work done effectively and efficiently now that uni is completely online for the semester! Also some tips as to how to not go absolutely insane in self-isolation during these difficult times.

    We are all in the same boat guys - hang in there!!! Stay safe & stay home if you can.

    Please be assured that any advice that we give regarding university is based on our own experience, and that what we have learned can be different for everyone. There are alternative services that can provide you with professional information and advice.

    Hi guys!

    We are excited about this episode because... WE ACTUALLY USED A DECENT MICROPHONE!!! So the quality is a bit better for your ears.
    This episode is one that we are excited about. It is raw, truthful, and you can tell how passionate we are about the topics we discuss. We hope you enjoy listening to us ripping apart assumptions that people have about university - some in our view are accurate, and others are completely not!

    Our experience of studying Public Relations!

    Our experience of studying Public Relations!

    In this podcast, we discuss what Public Relations (PR) is, how we came to study it, the ethics behind it & examples of publicity stunts that we have become aware of during our studies thus far. This was recorded in 2019 if you are wondering why the information is a little outdated!
