i really like the uni. it's laid back and quite welcoming. as first years (this is probably true of any univeristy) you dont have a lot of work, it eases you into studying at univeristy level. there's a compulsory tutorial programme where you're with 3 or 4 other people and work though specific things each week for different modules, it helps you get a better understanding for each.

the location of the uni is amazing. everything is within walking distance. your accommodation is right on the doorstep (unless you're in danesgate) so you dont have to wake up until right at the last minute haha do you know where you will be staying?

is there anything else you'd like to know? i love talking about it lol i spent a lot of time here before i was even accepted (my boyfriend goes here) and i found it so helpful knowing a lot about the uni before i actually came here

this semester i'm doing 6 hours of lectures a week. I have no early starts and have tuesdays and wednesdays off. last semester i was doing about 7-8 hours a week with one day off.

there are a few nightclubs here...engine shed being the main one as it's like 2 seconds away from any accomodation and is actually on campus. it can be really good in there provided you're with good people lol. There are plenty of good places to go on a night out. There's at least 2 clubs with 'special' nights every night. I can't think of a night where you wouldnt be able to go out because there's nothing happening. There are some really cheap places. There's a bar called Lloyds/Square Sail..it's a wetherspoons esentially but there;s a dancefloor, a huge ass disco ball and loud music. The drinks in there are really cheap and loads of people tend to go there before going to a club to drink, it's open until about 2am so if you don't feel like going out somewhere else (it's so easy to get comfy in there lol).

i know what you mean with the accommodation! i think i would have cried if i had got somewhere that wasn't ensuite. however, there's like 1 or 2 places i know of where you have to share and they're usually the very last place you'll be put.

lincoln is so convenient (you probably noticed that when you came?) there's shops on every corner, the gym is close to wherever you stay (not that that will motivate anyone ha). the main perk being you dont have to pay for taxis/buses to actually go out

I'm in Hayes Wharf. I didn't choose this one in particular, they sent my accommodation form to me about 4 months after everyone else had already got theirs so I got allocated to private accommodation by the uni. I am so so so glad I did though, I stayed in the Courts last year a lot cos my boyfriend was there and HW is so much better, you get much more for your money. The only problem with private accommodation is that you're not guaranteed to be living with first years (however, they do try to place you with them as much as they can).
Unfortunatly I know little to nothing about sports haha erm.. my BF did rugby last year and dropped out after the first 2 months or so because it was so culty and they had weird rules and stuff. I know other people that do football and hockey and they love it, especially those doing hockey.
As for the job part, there is a university "job shop" where businesses will contact the uni letting them know of any positions they have and then they get posted online on the lincoln uni jobshop website, it's really useful! It's also quite easy to get a few leafleting jobs from the clubs that are about. A girl I know has 3 jobs in Lincoln, 2 of them are in a bar/club and the other is in primark.

I can try and answer any more questions as much as I can
