Hello, just thought I would create a thread for York firmers as I couldn't find one for this year! I am hoping to study biology, maybe going to try for one of the exchange programmes outside of Europe, but will decide when I get there. Also thinking of applying to James college, but haven't really looked into all the accommodation side of things yet. Anyway it would be good to hear from others going to York and we can discuss courses and colleges and York in general............

Hi there! Not put down my firm and insurance yet (still got another open day to attend), but York is definitely my firm! I'm also thinking of applying to James college, the new buildings there seemed quite nice, wouldn't want one of the old ones however...

I've also applied to Biology and am 99% sure I will be firming York, I'm too scared to officially do it though :P I'm also considering James, or perhaps Alcuin.

I've firmed York for English Lit, and I like the sound of Vanbrugh (and I'm not just copying vikingmeg)

Getting pretty excited about uni now! Anyone else? So many clubs and societies to get involved in! But haven't firmed yet, not sure why, it's just making that commitment. Also anyone done their student finance? is it as laborious as UCAS?

I'm flip flopping firming between Politics at York or Edinburgh Uni. Will be visiting and going on campus tours soon. Hopefully it will make my choice better. If I firm York I like the look of James College!

Same here! Lots of exciting societies at York! Student finance is pretty quick as long as you have your passport and national insurance number on hand, not as bad as Ucas and all it's personal statement glory

Ok cool! Good to hear it's not too tedious what are your thoughts on catered vs self catered? I really want to go self catered as to me it's that extra bit of freedom! But my parents are trying pretty hard to convince me to go catered.

Definitely self-catered for me I think. I'm a vegetarian so it's more convenient for me and cheaper in the long run as long as I spend carefully, besides I like the freedom of being able to eat when I want. Plus, I might be wrong but I don't think catered provides every meal so you'd still be spending money on top of that.

Do you prefer ensuite or shared bathroom?

Hi! I applied for deferred entry last year so had York firmed for well over a year now! Excited to be finally going in just a couple of months. I'm going to do chemistry and hoping to apply for Alcuin.
