    I'm off to University of Cumbria - Lancaster to study diagnostic radiography at age 33.
    I'd originally wanted to go to Carlisle so I could commute, but after being put on the waiting list I've been offered Lancaster.

    It will be my second time at Uni, but I think this will be very different to my younger days.

    I'm 30 and hope to be starting costume construction/interpretation in September.

    I've only just applied though and there's only a couple of places left on my two choices so it could go either way but I'm living in hope, feverishly getting my portfolio sorted out!

    I'm feeling slightly better about being 30 and starting HND Technical Theatre at Swansea Met in September.

    I've got a bad feeling I'll be the crustiest person on the entire course.

    Don't worry about that, I started an HND two years ago (finances got on top of me at the time, hence why I'm now trying to go back in a better position) and I was in the mid range of ages, we had a few school leavers all the way up to a retired lady, it was really nice and we all integrated really well within class and on trips.

    I'm still waiting for replies from my two unis, spending every day jumping every time I get a new email and checking UCAS every 5 minutes, it's killing me!
