    How do! I'm Leanne, I'm 19 and I'm going to be studying English in September. I've applied for Lewes Court phase 1 but I kinda like the sound of East Slope now! I'm vegetarian (student cliche!) and I LOVE going to gigs, I'm going to Download Festival very soon, which is gonna be fun. Has anyone else taken a gap year? I'm a bit worried about being a older than everyone! xxx
    Hey Leanne, I wouldn't worry about being older, I am 20 now and will be turning 21 only a few of weeks into starting at Sussex. I don't know whether that makes me a mature student or not but it doesn't seem to matter at uni. One of the reasons I like Sussex compared to some of the other places I applied to was that It appears to have healthy percentage of of mature students. I looked on their website at some sort of pie chart thing and there were as many students age 19 as there were 18 and the 20 - 25s weren't too far behind so I don't think you'll be alone at all!

    P.S. I am a veggie too

    Hello Leanne! I am really very jealous, I went to Download 2005 and it was the best three days of my life, ever, and all my friends are going this year, but I can't because I have an English Literature exam on the Monday

    And, the real point to my reply, I wouldn't worry about being older. I'm 17, and it seems to me that looooads of people have taken a year out, or are just older. I'm worried about being younger than everyone else!

    There's obviously the bulk of any students at any uni who are about 18/19 when coming in to uni. Though, I've found on my course a lot of people are 23/24 yet you couldn't even tell. It really makes no difference as you have a great laugh anyways.

    I'm just finishing my first year and at 21 am definitely not the oldest. Most people are 19, but there are quite a few in my halls who are mid/late twenties.

    Hi guys, sorry if you feel this is the wrong thread to be posting this in but I couldn't find anywhere better... :rolleyes:

    Just letting you know how small a world this really is, my Father just returned from a golfing weekend with his friends and he met a man there also golfing with his friends. Anyway, they got chatting and my Dad mentioned that his daughter would be starting at Sussex Uni in September (hopefully!) and this man was like- no way, I lecture there!!! :eek: His name is Emmet Hayes and he teaches something like marketing if that means anything to anyone??

    He seemed to really love the University and only had good things to say about it so this has got me even more exited about coming here now, just have to work hard to get those grades!!!

    Haha, my cab driver the other day did her BA in exactly the same subject as me, at Sussex, then went on to do her MA and DPhil at Sussex. She taught one of my lecture tutors back in the day!

    It's a small world indeed.

    Personal reasons meaning she needs to be free to drop everything at any point.

    That, and, hey, maybe she LIKES being a cabbie.

    Please stick to English in the forums (except things like the International Lounge). We need to be able to moderate, and I don't speak Swedish.

    Yet.

    Well, when you decide that Swedish is the language for you, I'm sure that Wiicked will agree to teach you Than you can join in our debate about who's right, Wiicked or I.

    Until then I (at least) promise to keep it totally Swedish free..

    And Wiicked of course we call a truce..
