    Yeah I've been to look around, it's really nice. Facilities are great. It's like on the doorstep to the town too. I suppose it just depends on what you're looking for really. The childhood studies course is the best out of the ones i have applied for, you get your own personal tutor assigned to you throughout the three years studying there. that might be the same everywhere i'm not sure, its not been pointed out if so. The rooms are surprisingly big too, bigger than any others I have seen. I don't live too far away from Huddersfield either, so its easy to travel home on weekends etc. How far away is Huddersfield from where you are?

    Yeah that's why i've applied to do this, i'm not 100% sure what job i want, may as well keep my options open.

    its sounds pretty good! do u know what the town is like? and do u think that there will be some kind of invitation day, for people who have offers for childhood studies to go and visit, get more info etc? sorry for all the questions, think i should go and visit there myself soon, i didn't go to any open days
    where else did u apply? i really wanted to go to leeds university but my application was unsuccessful
    so will you be moving into the halls when u go?
    well, i live in manchester, so apparently its like an hours drive away. so its quite close to home which is good

    Erm not overly, I only live about 40 mins away in Keighley but never really visited it! I imagine it's just like any other town really! A lot different to manc though, hudd's not a big city, a hell of a lot smaller!
    Yeah i imagine there will be don't worry about it
    Yeah you should, just to see for yourself, I can only tell you so much, know what i mean?
    Oh that's such a shame, sorry about that
    Yeah i'll be moving into halls.
    Manc is not too far away from hudd really, as long as you're planning on moving in and not travelling everyday, takes about an hour and 10 mins i think, depending on traffic.
    I've applied to Sheff Hallam, Hudd and UCLan for childhood studies and lincoln and york st. johns for Primary ed. I've got offers back from all the childhood studies courses, got to go for interviews for primary education courses though which aren't till like Feb time.
    Where else you applied?
