    It's what I plan on doing - I've just been reading what some of last year's freshers did, it makes more sense to wait I don't know what day they stop selling them but I presume they will be on sale before & throughout Freshers as they must have enough packs for everyone :dontknow: What halls are you staying in by the way? The packs from Squirrels bar are actually for Oak House (I thought I was replying to the oak house thread...it's early ) but they will sell packs at the SU too I think. It'll all be fine anyway

    I do have a question for everyone. I missed by one grade my Biochem offer at Manchester( AAB and I got ABC, Bio was very close to an A so wasn't the issue at all but Chem I got the C which was the issue) but I have been offered and accepted the opportunity to do a Life Sciences foundation degree for a year before I can actually start my course. Being the case, will people who go to do the Foundation courses be welcome to go to Freshers Week, its been on my mind for the last few days just how exactly it works. Hopefully next year I can start my course proper, really excited and not at all bothered I have to spend an extra year at Uni
    Foundation year students are treated the same as any other, it doesn't change anything except what you'll be studying.

    The only way to find out is to ask.

    You would be at a slight disadvantage if you decide to live at home, but there's no reason you should miss out on the social side of things. You'd just need to make sure you make the effort to make friends through societies and your course. If you're really worried about missing out, living in halls would definitely be the 'safest' option.

    I was in your position too but I'm gonna be coming from home you can still be social, you'll just need to get involved as much as possible (societies, things happening on welcome week, get in touch with people on your course through Facebook pages) so it's all good!
