Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Can anybody tell me what it's like as the website isn't terribly informative?! I'm quite independent but would be going without friends so would I feel like the odd one out?

    Also i'm applying to boarding school for 6th form so don't want a moth away from home in summer- in the 'social action' bit do you stay at home and how much time does it take?

    Are you 15-17 years old? NCS is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Don't miss out this summer. More than 200,000 young people have already said Yes to NCS. "


    Your welcome.

    Hold on, I just answered another thread made by you asking a very similar thing.

    personally I hated NCS + didn't think the experience was worth it! the first week is a residential to somewhere like PGL then you come home on the Friday afternoon + stay at home for the week. the next week starting Monday is a residential to a local uni + you stay until Friday too. for the social action part you stay at home + do something in your local community, so you have to commute to wherever your social action is taking place each day. hope this helped!
