A Day in the life of Yuli A Day in the life of Yuli

9am - 6pm

I go onto campus every working day in the morning at around 9 o’clock, and go back home at 5-6 in the afternoon. Most of the time, I stay at our PGR suite. I am doing research on China emission accounts and low-carbon development. Every PhD candidate in our school (School of International Development) has a desk in the PGR suite, equipped with a computer. I also work in the library sometimes, in case I need to borrow books.

I meet with my supervisors quite frequently, almost once a week. They are very nice and always give me valuable suggestions on my research.


3pm - 4pm

Three times a week, I go to the gym in the afternoon. The Sportspark at the university is excellent. Sometimes on the weekend, I attend the sports courses organised by the Sportspark, such as swimming.


6pm - 10pm

In the evening, I usually have dinner with my roommates. I have three roommates who I share an entire house with. Two of them are also PhD candidates in our school. After the dinner, I prepare lunch for tomorrow.



On Saturday, I usually visit my friends and we play cards together. On Sunday, I go to the supermarkets to buy some daily supplies, or go shopping in the city centre.

On some weeks, our school PGR reps organise activities, such as parties, boating, and hiking. Such activities give us the opportunity to know each other better. The activities are posted on Facebook.
