      I get pretty good holidays compared to the average holidays people get. I can choose when I take my holidays, and if I had them all in a row, I would get 7 weeks off. That includes christmas, easter and other bank holidays though. Enjoy the long holidays while you can! (btw at Uni you get even longer holidays, you only really spend about half the year actually in University! best experience ever)

      I get to choose my holidays, I get 6 weeks to take when I want throughout the year…..plus my Easter, Christmas and Bank Holiday’s! That’s the good thing about being paid to be a student…I get a wage and good holidays! Sadly my holidays aren’t as good as the Undergraduates…..they get 13 weeks of summer, then 3 weeks for Easter and normally 4 weeks for Christmas!! I can also take the odd day off during the week…..I just work Saturday or Sunday instead. No one really minds how many holiday you take, as long as the work gets done 🙂
