They Call Me Sweden

21 year old Swede living and studying (BA Journalism, Media and Sociology) in Cardiff, UK. Originally from Stockholm. Loves food, to travel and my dear friends.

Last year at uni and soon to be a graduate!

Hello there!

I’m back in Cardiff now for my third and final year. It feels weird that this might be my last year as a student. Life as a graduate feels quite distant, but I have to admit that I look forward to it. It’s something I’ve been waiting for since my first day as a student in Cardiff. It will be so exciting to rent the gown, to attend the ceremony and celebrate with my friends and family. The university released the dates of the ceremonies last week, so I’ll be graduating on July 16th. I guess ‘real life’ begins after that date, but what happens then? I’m currently organizing my applications for postgraduate diplomas for journalism. My first hand choice will be Cardiff University (their diploma is really good and high ranked, but it would also feel quite ‘safe’ to stay another year, at least), but I will apply to other universities as well. I’d like a career in news journalism in the UK so I have for that reason decided to stay in the country.

So I was wondering whether any of you have any experience with NCTJ accredited courses, which universities are good and do you have any advice regarding this? Would be great to get some advice!


Me, just now in a staircase at a hotel, I’m in Llandudno in North Wales at the moment. Snowdonia is so nice!

"It’s typically a bad sign when my hometown makes news in Sweden. St. Louis was in the headlines here a few years ago when a tornado struck the airport.
