Gustavo is studying the MSc in Software Engineering.

It is a nice morning, and so I walk to the Department for my morning lectures.
After the lectures, I make my way home to do some reading and work on one of my assessments which is due in very soon.
I live with 25 other students from all around the world, including China, Korea, Japan, USA and Brazil. Tonight, one of my Brazilian housemates is cooking for a few of us – I’m looking forward to a fantastic meal!
After coffee and breakfast, I go straight to the Department for a lecture in Software Management.
I have lunch with friends from the course, and then we go to our lecture in Concurrent and Real Time Programming, followed by another lecture in User Centred Design.
When I have finished, I go to the Sports Village for a game of squash with one of my housemates – a great way to relax after a busy day.
I have another lecture this morning, followed by a practical. Afterwards, I go to the Ron Cooke Hub and have some lunch with friends.
In the afternoon, I go to the Masters Lab and work on one of my projects. I also do some reading to prepare for tomorrow's lecture.
I am a member of the Latin American Society and, on Wednesdays, we have a 'Movie Night'. This is a great opportunity to meet with other students, watch a movie, and discuss it afterwards. After the movie, I go for a quick drink in one of the bars on campus before going home to bed.
After breakfast, I go straight to the Department for a lecture and a practical session. In the afternoon, I go to the Masters Lab to catch up on some programming.
At 3pm, I meet my Supervisor and we discuss the work I have done so far. After the meeting, I head back home and decide to go for run with two of my housemates.
I have a practical session this morning. Afterwards, I have time for a coffee in the Ron Cooke Hub with a friend, before heading back over to the Masters Lab to finish some work.
Tonight, I am heading over to Wentworth College to help teach salsa – great fun, and often very funny! After a good night, I go home and chat with my housemates in the Common Room.
There is a festival taking place in the centre of York this weekend, and so I walk into the city with two of my housemates to see what is happening.
In our house tonight, we are having another ‘International Dinner’: everyone is preparing a traditional dish from their country. These evenings are always great fun, and I enjoy relaxing with my housemates.
I have an early start today, as I am going out for the day with the Outdoor Society. We often have day trips at the weekend, and today we are going to Robin Hood’s Bay on the Yorkshire coast. I have been told that I must try the fish and chips!
