    Okay seeming as Lancaster have let prospective students know of this site, we may as well make good use of it.

    So any questions you want to ask, go ahead, and me and whoever other current student is online will try and ask them as best as we can.

    To help matters, I study Sociology, Criminology and Education Studies and am in Lonsdale College.

    So ask away.

    I moved from the midlands, just below Birmingham. It's about three hours up the motorway to Lancaster from where I live.

    Btw, to follow LubyLoo's example, I'm studying English Lit with Creative Writing and Women's Studies and I'm in Cartmel College.

    A likely story! Even I have a slight brummy accent and I live about forty minutes drive away from the city itself! :p:

    Lol seems like quite a few brummies go to Lancaster!

    I live about 30mins away from B'ham and am hoping to come to Lancaster next year!

    Question.....Im intending to study English Language, anyone heard anything about it? I originally applied for Media and Cultural Studies and the people there gave me the impression the English Language department was really boring?? lol

    Also, would it be possible to study minors in Media and Cultural Studies and Creative Writing? If anyone does these subjects, do you enjoy them? Worst and best bits?!

    Thanks!

    As a part of the english department, I can tell you it's definitely not boring. Especially not the creative writing side, that's excellent. George Green, who is head of creative writing, is brilliant and really funny. Obviously I can't talk about language as I'm doing literature, but the department as a whole can definitely not be classed as boring.

    Hope that helped in some way!

    HAHAHA! I think I like him even more now. Although, I shan't be stalking him. I don't like him that much.

    You say that like its a bad thing! I come from Newcastle, and there cannot be an accent which makes people sound thicker than the geordie accent. I'm planning to study French and Spanish. How many hours of lectures do you get a week?

    Could someone explain doing the 3 subjects thing and if you do law do you just do law?

    If you do Law, then that counts for two modules, so you only need to pick one extra. My housemate does law and in the first year she picked Psychology, because it covered a lot of the A Level (which she'd done), which meant she could concentrate more on the law modules. They tend to explain everything pretty well at the open days

    I'm a third year, but in the first year I did economics, management science and OWT (I do business studies so don't actually have a major).

    Hi, if you don't mind me asking where did you move from to Lancaster?
    I moved from Liverpool, it's about an hours drive but takes nearly two hours on the train! :rolleyes:

    I'm studying Geography (which counts for two subjects) and Biology as a minor. I was a bit confused about the major/minor system, but when i got here they explained it pretty well.

    --------------

    ooh, forgot to add, i'm in Lonsdale college (flat mates with Luby Loo)!

    I, personally, haven't met any people from public school... I mean, there's bound to be some but I haven't ran across any. Or if I have, it hasn't been an issue that's been raised.

    whats the best college?
    Entirely based on personal opinion. :p:

    Is it hard to get used to budgeting, and is it easy to get home from Lancaster? x
    I haven't found it hard to stick to a budget but then I'm a bit of an organisation freak, haha. I have a budget of up to £70 a week maximum, I prefer not to spend that much though. As for easyness to get home, depends where you live! There is a train station though and it's on a mainline up to Edinburgh so there are a lot of trains north and south.
