Hi all,

I have an unconditional offer for a master ma/msc programme for Spirituality, Theology and Health. Starting in October 2014.

I am looking for mature students who are having trouble like me, choosing the right college to live and work in.
As I live in Holland, I can not come and visit the colleges.
My choice of college is set by tomorrow, for as from Monday on I understood the selection date wil start.

At first I thought: well, then I should apply for St. John's. But later I thought, mayby there is too much Christianity in my studies already, so it would be a bit of relief to be in a college with a more different atmosphere.
So that's why St. Chad's came in the picture.

Are their any other mature students with the same issue?
The issue is: I will have to choose by tomorrow wether I would like to live in St. John's or St. Chad's.

Important is for me:
- A more spacious room, since I am used to my own (very quiet) house.
- A small community
- Friendly people to make new friends easily
- Traditional aspects of the college
- Some nature around the college, like trees or a yard etc.
- Not too much noice from undergraduates, as I am older (nearly 40) and I will need my sleep regularly

Should I think: you study theology so just go for St. John's?
Or should I think: avoid too much theology and go for St. Chad's?

Any advise, especially from postgraduate (mature) students, is highly appreciated!

If anyonce could show me a pic of a more spacious Postgraduate room in St. John's college would be very helpfull to me!

All help is much welcome!! Thanks!

Oh sorry, I am pretty new to this forum.
Do you happen to know which board would suite this message best? Would that be the Durham forum in general?
Thanks!
