Seeming as there is no sub forum for Lancaster I thought I would start a thread here.
So who's going, and what are you studying? (Grades pending of course).
I'm studying Sociology and I can't wait. I got my accomodation pack through on Tuesday. Lonsdale looks pretty swish.
All being well, I'll be going to do Geography.
I'm in my second year, studying English Lit and Music.
I always wondered, do you like it in Lancaster. I grew up there and I don't really like the place, it's a bit like a one-horse town. What do you do?
i'm hopefully going, if they accept me without the grades they asked for! i'm going for politics&philosophy.
with regards to lancaster itself, i'm looking forward to a more rural setting. i live in manchester and really want out of it for a little while.
lancaster's got one of the finest management degree course in UK
Have you all sent off your accomodation forms?
I have applied for Lonsdale and Cartmel, the two most popular.
I can see me sleeping on the bench outside at this rate.
And I suppose Lancaster is quite a small town, but I personally like to know where everything is, rather than get lost in a big city. It's not too far from home as I will have to go home every weekend for my job, and there seems enough to do.
I'm hopefully going in October too to study History/Politics.
Think I put down Grizedale as my first choice as my sister stayed there when she studied at Lancaster and she said it was nice accomodation.
My sister still lives in Lancaster too and she said the city is really on the up: bar wise and shop wise. If not, Preston is only a bus ride away too.
I really hope I get in, Manchester Met seems a bit too wild and hectic for me.
Does anyone know why courses start in October too and not Septembe?
I think the timetable for lectures comes out within the next 4 weeks too...so you shuld know how many times you need to get out of bed for 9am. You get your seminar times when you enroll which for freshers is within freshers week and for everyone else its queing on the first week back! I spent an hour in one last year.
I'm glad you all recommend Preston. I live there hehe.
Does anyone know when we are likely to find out if we have been allocated into our choice for accomodation?
I chose Lonsdale and Cartmel, and due to them being oversubscribed I will more than likely be sleeping on a bench.
Anyone who has stayed in either Lonsdale or Cartmel tell me what it's like?
I don't think you'll find out for a while after results day. I think I found out about 3/4 weeks before freshers week.
Woooahh see you in October (the 1st My BIRTHDAY!!!!!) lol I've applied to Pendle and Lonsdale...doing End Lit CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!
Im going to Lancaster to in October to study Computer Science. I've put down Lonsdale and Cartmel as my choices, hopefully il get one of them!
I've put down Grizedale and one other I cant remember.
Got in to study History/Politcs.
