Author Bio

Hi! I'm Malthe! I was born and raised in Silkeborg, Denmark but I have lived in Greenland when I was younger and in the United States as an exchange student in 2013. This summer I graduated from Silkeborg Gymnasium and now I'm searching for new adventures in York, UK, where I study Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of York. I strongly, maybe naively, believe that the world will become a better place if we try to explore every corner of it. My hope is that this blog will encourage more students to do so. I hope you'll enjoy it!

Back in York – The Life of a Student at the University of York

Published: January 16, 2017

It has been more than a month since I left York to go back for Christmas and New Year’s in Denmark. Christmas break passed by so fast. I’ve already been in York for almost two weeks now. Time flies. Christmas at home was wonderful. I got to see friends and family and my former host-family from Texas even came all the way to Denmark to celebrate Christmas with us. It was a blast. New Year’s was spent with friends and it was really good to catch up on how everyone’s doing. A few days in between all of this was spent…

First Term – University Life at University of York

Published: December 9, 2016

My 1st term at uni officially ended a week ago. Tomorrow morning I’m leaving for Denmark to spend Christmas and New Year’s at home. The past week I’ve spent revising and preparing for my philosophy and maths exams which are coming up in January and writing my summative political theory essay. My initial plan was to finish revising and writing before going back and leaving all my books here… But then end-of-term coffees, end-of-term dinners, end-of-term gin and tonics also happened. Suddenly the week passed by. It’s a bit difficult to describe how this first term has been. So much…

Autumn in York

Published: November 14, 2016

The colours of the leaves are slowly fading, the days have become shorter and the hours spent in the library have become longer. Time goes by incredible fast and there’s only a few weeks of lectures, seminars and practicals left before we all go home for Christmas. The past weeks have been busy; there’s been essays to write, plenty of worksheets to turn in and difficult practicals to do for maths. All the time in between has been spent on drinking coffee with course mates, on pub crawls, on a spontaneous day trip to Leeds for a James Blake concert,…

Hello!

Published: October 17, 2016

  I’m writing this post on the train on my way back to university York after a weekend-trip to Germany. This week StudyAdvantage goes global and I think this is the right occasion for me to introduce myself and explain a bit more about why I’m writing here. I’m Malthe. I’m from a small city in Denmark called Silkeborg. Three weeks ago I moved to York, UK to attend the University York where I will be studying a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) for the next three years. The first three weeks of uni-life at University…
