I really like the look of Northampton uni and after deliberating over which universities to apply for I think this one is definitely going to be one of my choices.

Is anyone else applying for the Business Entrepreneurship FDA or any other business courses?

Same for me really plus I like the flexibility of being able to leave after 2 years or completing a third year if you decide to.

I haven't been to see the uni yet but I really want to soon. What did you think of the accommodation?

yeah thats also a bit i liked the idea of, i didnt see the accommodation when i went but i have looked on the virtual tour and they look nice, some of them are a bit small but they look alright, i like the look of the kitchen space in all of them tbh, but i would have a kettle in my room for tea coffee and chocolate so i dont have to keep going to the kitchen lol.

you can also hire laptops for the day i like that idea as my laptop is slow

Yeah it does all look nice on the website. I'm really glad it's all on campus too! Would be good to just be able to walk like 2 minutes to be at a lecture. Think I would try to get a standard single room as I don't think its worth the money to have an ensuite.

Haha I would definitely have a kettle in my room too! Im constantly making drinks so it will come in handy

Yeah the fact that it's on campus is really good for me because it will give me a break from having to cycle to and from the bus stop for a 30 minute journey

i don't know whether I would go for a small single or a standard single?

Yeah that is a long time! Ohh yeh I didn't realise there were different size rooms. Think I would rather just have the small and have more money to spend on myself!

Where else have you applied to? Other uni's ive decided on for definite are Keele and probably Wolverhampton. Keep changing my mind about the rest.

Yes my first choice is Northampton or Keele but Wolverhampton is more of a back up as they have lower requirement so I know I will get an offer from them.

Well the others are between London South Bank, Canterbury and Durham. Durham is to do a foundation year first. I've spoken to them and they said I fit the criteria and should apply but the competition is soo high.

I need to complete my application but the page on ucas is down :/ I am applying for the foundation courses at Northampton and Canterbury as well as the full Ba(Hons) and then ive just applied for the full Ba(Hons) at Manchester Met.

i suggest you apply for Durham because if they say you fit in than all you need to do is make sure you ps stands out.

That's lucky. Well good luck! Hopefully they will get back to you soon with offers!

I dont have that much to write about tbh other than my qualifications and job but it's only in retail. Written a lot about wanting to run my own business in the future so hoping this will be enough along with other bits about how a degree will help me. Can't wait to just send off.
