    Sainsbury's really isn't that much more expensive than the other big supermarkets. I shop around a lot and the difference isn't so great. Plus, they have some amazing special offers and a great Basics range, which keeps costs down.

    To go into Morecambe itself, you can jump on a bus on campus and go all the way [on the same bus]. Takes around 40 minutes. Asda is in a slightly odd place. You can jump on a bus on campus, carry on through Lancaster and then make it to Asda with a walk or you can swap buses at the bus station. Asda is a bit of a faff without a car - not impossible or anything, just a faff - which is why many people have things delivered. It works out at around £3 for delivery, which is possibly cheaper than the bus fare.

    As mentioned, there is a lot of variety. All the big supermarkets are represented, plus Booths and Co-Op - with Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrison's [and Booths & Co-Op] being just one bus from campus - and there are lots of independent and specialised places to buy from as well.

    Thanks for that all that information.

    I have a question about the sport at Lancaster, do you know what the cricket is like at the Uni? Amount of pitches and League wise. Tried searching on the website couldn't really find much.

    Thank you for that. I was wondering, what supermarkets are there in Lancaster? i've heard there isnt many which can be a problem? Apparently theres only a sainburys near the bus station and that's pretty much it :/ did you struggle with food shopping etc?
    Affinity89 has done a wonderfully comprehensive list of the variety of supermarkets in Lancaster I assure you, you won't find a problem at all. I know two boys who last term did not leave campus for eight weeks - yes, EIGHT WEEKS - because they simply got all of their food delivered to their accommodation from Asda. I wouldn't recommend not leaving campus for eight weeks, but a lot of people get the bulk of their shopping delivered Also, although the Spar supermarket on campus is generally quite pricey, if you go early evening you can get some great bargains sometimes (yesterday I got six Muller Rice for 99p and a big gammon steak for £1!)

    I was wondering about the fees. Do anyone know whether it's gonna increase next year? I thought it was gonna be fixed.... but on the website it says:

    Note that fees are reviewed annually and are set to increase significantly in 2012.
    For those starting in Sept 2011 - fees will be around £3290 per year (and will increase slightly each year I think)

    For those starting in Sept 2012 - fees can be a maximum of £9000 per year (not sure if they will increase slightly each year after that or not).

    If you're starting in 2011 you will not be subject to the increase to £9000 at any point of your degree, you'll carry on through your degree at the circa £3290 rate.
