Has anyone been to an open day for Lancaster Uni? What is it like? I like the sound of the Music Degree and it has a teacher rating of 4 but a miniunm offer which I could manage (which is good!)

I don't get the prospectus when it says students study up to three subjects in their first year - does that mean Music, English and French or Performing, Composing, Purcell's Operas

Yeah, you study three completely different subjects in your first year. I got an offer from Lancaster for Politics which will probably be my insurance, so in my first year I would study Politics and something like Religious Studies And History... in the second year you go more specialised, but you can change to one of the two other subjects if you don't like your original one.

As far as I know you have to do 3 subjects in your first year although you could take music related ones. I have an offer from them for Psych.

In most unis in your first year you have to do a certain amounts of credits each year in the first year they dont offer you the full amount of credits in your first year and so you do other subjects too. For example, I was a single hons english student but I did 60 credits English 40 American studies and 20 economic history in my first year. Its to give you a broad education.

Yeah but in Lancaster you HAVE to study 3 different subjects (unless your doing a joint honours degree then I think it would be just one other subject).You study each of them for an equal amount of time and if you like any of the other subjects better after the first year then you can continue with that one instead!! Works out well for some people I guess.....

I had to do 3 subjects but because of the structure of the courses I had to do less history most people do an equal no of credits for each course. it was disappointing in the end because I wanted to change to history and economics at the end of the first year, I got far better marks in that than anything else and it was far more interesting but they wouldnt let me because they said that I hadnt done enough credits in it so I had to stick to the English
