    Hi all,

    I've recently been to the Open Day, and the only college I got to see properly was St Chads - and honestly, I wasn't very keen on it.

    What are the other colleges like? Are they different?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    They're all hugely different. What are you looking for in terms of accommodation? Do you have preferences regarding self-catered or catered? Formal or more informal? Modern facilities or traditional buildings? Any access requirements? What about college size? How would you feel about sharing a room for a term, or a year, or having to share a bathroom? If you can list off a few of those, then you can narrow down which colleges would suit you and get opinions from there.

    What did you not like about Chads? Any preference for hill or city?
