Read Seven Bridges Vol. 3

Edited by James Hewitt and Paul McSherry.


Welcome to the third volume of the Seven Bridges Academic Journal. This Journal is fully student led and openly encourages students to expand and maximise their own unique talents: Seven Bridges provides a platform to showcase these talents. This third edition is a continuance of the excellent work carried out over the last two years by the students who worked on the Journal and those who contributed articles.

The subject disciplines have been expanded further, ranging from sport, business, music, physiology, health, cultural sensitivity to project and people management, which illustrates the breadth of work across the college. We have included work from a Level 4 student, literature reviews, articles and condensed dissertations highlighting the diverse range in this year’s edition.

We would like to thank the members of the editorial board for their valuable assistance. We would also like to thank Jonathon Eaton and Laura Elliott from the HE Directorate, Richard Johnson from the library and numerous tutors and college staff for their guidance and support in this project. This issue has seen a progression in the layout and design and we are extremely grateful for the guidance and expertise from Brian Shepherd, IT support staff at the Lindisfarne building, who has helped in this process.
