#UniHasMadeMeRealise: The Best Things Learnt at University

For many of you, exams will have finished and another year of university is coming to a close. Whether it has been your exciting first year, or your more strenuous final year, no doubt you'll have learnt something about yourself and life over the last 12 months.

On Twitter, a hashtag has been trending this morning with people revealing what their university experience has made them realise. From how much sleep they need, to how they deal with deadlines, to what food they'll eat when desperate, it seems university teaches you a lot about yourself.

7 Best Blockbuster Movies of 2013 - With Trailers

June is here, the sun is out and the arty cinema of Cannes is over. All that means one thing- the season of the blockbuster movie is just about to hit cinemas.

Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness may have whetted your appetite, but there are PLENTY more big hitting films coming out this summer. 2013 more than any other year appears to offer a feast of stunning looking sci-fi and fantasy films.

With big special effects and even bigger budgets, these are the sort of films that demand to be seen at the cinema. The plot may not always make sense, the characters are often pretty shallow and the acting isn't always that great, but they are sure to be spectacular. Plus, they always make for the best trailers.

Here we round up seven of the very biggest and best blockbusters coming out over the next six months (in order of release date).

Who Tops the 2014 UK University Rankings?

The Guardian released its annual university rankings yesterday, with Cambridge (above) taking the coveted top spot for the third year in a row. Alongside the overall university rankings, the newspaper uniquely also creates individual subject tables, allowing you to find the best universities for your chosen course- which you can search here.

Universities are measured on nine different criteria, including course satisfaction, teaching quality, staff-student ratio, the amount of money spent on each student, value-added and the percentage of graduates who have a job within 6 months of leaving.

Champions League Final: German Football is Coming to London

German football fans will be descending on London in their hundreds of thousands this weekend, with an all-German Champions League final at Wembley taking place on Saturday night. Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will be battling it out to be crowned champions of Europe, whilst fans will be trying just as hard to get their hands on an elusive ticket to the match.

Wembley is hosting the showpiece match for the second time in three years, and each team will have 25,000 supporters inside the stadium. However, it is expected that those lucky enough to be at Wembley may be dwarfed by the number of those in London without a ticket.

When the tickets went on sale, a grand total of 502,567 Dortmund fans applied for one, with less than one in twenty of them getting allocated one. Similarly, over 250,000 Bayern fans applied for their allocation of just 25,000. All that adds up to a lot of fans willing to travel to London who are without tickets.

The Metropolitan police are (very) conservatively estimating that several thousand German fans will be travelling without tickets, plus there are the 300,000 Germans who are currently living in the UK. When they are all added up, experts are predicting as many as 150,000 German fans could descend on London.
