    Hey guys!
    We don't have one of these so I thought it would be a cool idea.
    Chat about anything you like, I thought it would be similar to the thread we had going during the summer exams.
    This thread is for people who already go to Leicester, anyone with questions who is a prospective student can make their own thread and will get answered there.
    Thanks

    Just popping into the bullring for a couple of hours and coming back It is nice, though a lot of bussing it to get places. Though thats not a massive problem

    bullring is mental, particularly on a Saturday! I decided to do my christmas shopping last christmas in Leicester rather than Birmingham (where I live) because of the horredous queues. Its not just brummies who shop in Birmingham, at christmas you get people from all over the west midlands going there. I hated it. Leicester has all the same chains as Brum anyway

    I have an offer from Leicester and Loughborough. I like Surrey and Leicester equally though, even though Leicester is technically a better uni academically. Can't decide =(
    Please read the first post!
    I will answer you though, just this once. Leicester is alot better, come to an open day

    Might do.
    You catered muse? Or living out already?
    It's tough getting work done just before 5:30. Maybe I'm just really bad at time management though xD ~ Not good... it's already 7 weeks in!

    Ooooh.... A long timer! This the erasmus scheme? Originally I wanted to do that but it seems that you need to be pretty dedicated with the amount of people applying. How's living out in the big wide world? Any major differences between living there and well.. Halls ^^'

    Did you live with friends during the 2nd year?
    (I've been thinking about this for a while now - I'm a frewbie :p:)

    lol if by longtimer you mean third year then yes :p:
    yes its erasmus, and it wasn't at all competative in my department. Hardly anyone wanted to do it.
    I had a really **** house, and I lived with friends. Don't worry about houses thou, as long as you don't go with Jalaram estate agents you'll be ok. It was better than halls as we had a communal space to chill out in. It was also nice to get better food
