    Hey there,
    I got my offer yesterday (unconditional) for Psychology, no I'm not a genius that no matter what gets a place - I'm a gap year guy :cool: , so it's always going to be unconditional as I have the grades lol! but yeah I got my offers for
    Hertfordshire
    Lincoln
    Huddersfield
    CCCU
    and I have chosen Lincoln as my firm (and therefore only choice, had to decline all the others)

    I was wondering who else knows they are going, or are aiming to go

    Good luck

    I will definitely be going. Am in a similiar situation to you. I've been out of education for a couple of years now (already have my a levels) so received an unconditional offer to study international relations.

    Hey! Congrats to everyone who has offers!

    I'm in my first year at the moment (doing Interactive Design ), but just thought I'd mention something about the Student Village (Courts). I've known a few people who have lived there for their first year (there's a couple on my course living there right now) and quite a number have said it isn't worth what they charge you for. Isn't it close to £100 a week now? I'd just say, make sure you get viewings at quite a few other places before you send your form off, so you can make a good choice and so you know what to expect . Oh, and definitely put more than one choice down! I had my heart set on brayford quay (gorgeous flats!) and didn't put a second choice down, so I got shuffled into flat at Cathedral Street Apartments that I didn't particularly like at the time xD. Got used to it now, so all is well! Worked out tonnes cheaper too, just lacks an en-suite bathroom haha. Shared bathrooms aren't too bad once you get used to them

    Hey there! I got an offer at Hertfordshire too! I decided Lincoln though, whatuni.com is a brilliant website to compare, gives you student reviews etc! I found that Hertfordshire lacked the citylife (nightlife basically), and I just love the look of the Lincoln campus! But yeah they're both great and I had trouble choosing. Good luck! xx

    Thanks for the kind advice! I've already sent off my application forms, with Courts as my first choice though! lol They look so awesome, but basically I haven't had time to visit lincoln yet, but they look sooo good, I think I've made Brayford Quay as my 3rd choice or something, have you visited the Courts yourself, and are they up to scratch with the others? Thanks xx

    Ahh well thanks I'm going to have another look round both soon b4 I definitely decide but weighing up their good and bad points, it looks close.

    Lincoln is definitely a beautiful city but I think I need to double check the nightclubs

    Whatuni is a lifesaver haaha

    Hi guys, got a conditional offer from Lincoln for Business Studies. Only problem is I haven't received an offer from Winchester and am still undecided as to which I want to study at.

    Have family in Lincoln and love the city, uni is really nice and accommodation is just what I'm looking for. Winchester is close to home though and a really nice place, I'm a mature student (will be 21 when I start) and its quite a quiet little place which will benefit me. I also have friends that study there and really enjoyed it when I went down to visit.

    I keep making a decision and then changing my mind lol.

    when do people usually start applying for halls?

    The main bonus about living in Student Village is that you're guaranteed to be put with first years. I lived in Pavilions in my first year and was put with all second years. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad experience in the slightest but still, going to Student Village a few times it's definitely got the most studenty feel to it. Everybody is in the same boat, whereas with ALL other accomm in a lincoln its a mixture of all years. I'd personally go for the student village if you have the chance..

    I think since the University has reserved hundreds of rooms at a time with various accommodation places, and whole flats at that (last I heard), first years are pretty much guaranteed to be put together for the next academic year anyway . Most places are now full 'cause so many flats are reserved for first years. A lady in the reception at Park Court told me they usually have places right up until Easter, and when I signed for my room a couple of weeks ago, they were literally down to their last few (single rooms in separate flats). Apparently they have never filled up so quickly. I think it's the University trying to avoid what happened with this years first years, where many ended up in Houses 'cause all the halls were full. I do agree that with Courts you are absolutely guaranteed to be with other first years, but I do believe the chances of being with mixed years are significantly reduced for this next year at the very least!
