You should invest in a Young Person's Railcard when you get here. It'll cost you £20 and is valid for a year, it gives you large discounts on the tickets and will save you a lot in the long run if you have to keep taking trips to and fro the airport.
That's definitely true, I've saved a fortune with my card this year. However, the ticket I got was without my Young Persons card so it is possible and if you open a Natwest student account they give you a five year Young Persons railcard for free.

Quite often the saver return tickets turn out to be cheaper, though I tend to buy tickets on the day of travel so prices can be pretty variable.

My mum is coming up with me for £47 return with two cheap single tickets whereas even if she had a railcard a saver return would be £60. Usually saver returns are the best deal because most people do not book journeys two months in advance!

Anyway, I received my accommodation pack this morning.

Last year it had to be in the week before Freshers' week for Direct Debit, unless you're paying by cheque, where you go to the Finance Office in Freshers' Week.

Ok, i've decided to put standard college room as first choice, ensuite as second choice (even though the accomodation doesn't look as nice i want to be in one of the older colleges as they look more fun!) but for third choice, what would people recommend? i was thinking maybe fairfax house, but is there any way of putting something where you are living on campus as third choice? (really don't want to be in halifax, as i didnt really like the house system or the fact that it's not right in the middle of everything)

Also, which college (if any) is Fairfax house part of?

It's our duty to help Johnny Foreigner - if we help them get here they might bring edible food with them.

You're allergic to English food? Hmm. I love French food as long as it's vegetarian, any chance of some chocolate? I'll bake a cake.

That sounds wonderful. In a pub here your food is prepared in a factory, put in a plastic bag and microwaved. Rare steaks are in different bags to medium steaks and may not be converted to medium steaks by extra microwave time. Watch out. Does English cuisine even exist?

The heart attack caused by eating it would be far more traumatic.

I'm not the type of person who eats in restaurants...don't give much credibility to such distinctions...each person has their own taste, maybe english people love the "fat duck"...rather give much more value to local specialities...

like in savoie its the fondue...don't need to go to a restaurant to eat a nice, cheesy and winny fondue...
