    Hi,

    I'll be starting Chemistry at the Foundation Centre this September and I just wanted to show my face here! I'm from York so pretty close to Durham and I've been allocated Grey College!

    Go on the southerners! I've noticed a lack of historians, who do we share our foundation year with?
    You share modules with the arts and humanities, social scientists (incl. Law) and archaeologists. When I was at the foundation centre there were only one or two history students and about four classics students. The numbers vary.

    Ah well, perhaps you should bring it back when you graduate?
    Not really sure what I will do, but I hope to work in London, perhaps at some historical site like the Tower of London. That would be awesome.
    And I'm really excited, hadn't been up north until the other day, going to be somewhere new to explore

    Any questions about working in heritage, just let me know. I've worked for historic Scotland, English heritage and I currently work at Durham Cathedral and Alnwick Castle. If that's the route you want to go, get as much experience as you can during your degree.

    Hello!
    Also at Cuths and having the same problem haha. I think I'll try to get a gown though! They seem really nice to wear at the matriculation and I'm sure they'll come in handy again eventually

    Hey re: Gowns at Cuths, in the Fresher handbook I received, the author wrote that she had never seen anyone at Cuths wearing one.

    In terms of a timetable if you log in to DUO and head to the Foundation Notice Board, then on the left hand side click Timetables, then your campus and course you should see a timetable for the first semester. I'm not sure if that's an up to date document as some of the others aren't, but a good indication of what to expect first term at least.

    Glad to see a couple of other Foundation students going into Cuths this year though, what have you opted for accommodation?

    Thanks Matt, just checked the fresher handbook and seems like gowns wouldn't be very useful after all.

    Excited to be at Cuths! I applied for a room at Parsons and a single at Bailey for second choice. Both locations seem great. What about you?

    Can't wait to find out where I was allocated to. I think we'll only find out on Friday, but I keep checking anyway.

    Studying Engineering with foundation. You?

    Excited about the Induction week? Harry Potter night seems specially great!

    Yeah should find out this week hopefully. I'm doing politics with foundation.

    Yeah the week looks fun. Not convinced by Harry Potter night though. At least it would be a reason to get a gown.
