    I'm off to Hull as a mature student mate (29). I'll still be living back in Beverley though, wouldn't be able to concentrate living in halls, nearly past the 'partying' stage

    Hello pal,
    I'm currently looking at renting a one bedroomed in Hull near the uni, don't think I could face halls either. What are you studying and how do you feel about it all?

    I'm doing chemistry with a foundation year... Done an access to combined studies last year. I'm looking forward to it too. I was in Beverly not long ago it's nice there. How long would it take on public transport to get to the uni from Beverly? My names chad by the way, I'm in bridgwater at the minute, ****hole near Bristol. Moving to my mums in Leeds in 5 weeks.
    What's Hull like as a city?

    I moved to the area 6 years ago, I find Hull a rather friendly place, and everything feels human-size! Plenty of night life not far from uni, bars, cafes and all that, and the Student Union seems to be rather well regarded for their entertainment provisions, although I am a bit passed clubbing. Quite easy to go around by bike as well as it is all on the flat. There is no shortage of shops/supermarkets for part-time jobs, and it is sort of all on your door-step
    The student union runs a mature students group, which organises a lunch in freshers' week. I was just having a chat recently with a mature student from Hull, she told me that she has had more contacts with the people she met on the group than with other students on her course.

    PS: all things being well I'll start a nursing degree in September, waiting for the exam results.

    Hello

    I'm a (very!) mature student starting a foundation year with History at Hull in September. I already live in Hull and have family and part-time work commitments.
    I don't mind admitting to everyone I'm absolutely petrified:eek:
    Would love to chat with anyone in the same boat for some mutual moral support.

    Hello... I'm a bit anxious about it all too. Looking forward to it loads though. I'm moving to Leeds on Sunday to live with my parents again before going to Hull in September. That's more nerve racking I reckon! I'm always available to talk so keep in touch.

    I'm looking forward to it, my problem is that I'm worrying that I won't make many friends because a) I'm not staying in halls and b) I'm 29, so may have a tough time trying to relate with some of the people on my course who may be you get than me

    I am not that petrified but I think your excitement will dissipate nearer to the time. Glad to hear that there's a few mature students going. I don't feel alone loo 😊

    aaaw, Bless you Lauren. Well one small advantage I have is that I already live in this wonderful city and will be happy to tell you all about it. Sure you'll soon get to know all the fellow students on the same course, as will I. But if there's anything you need to know, or want to inbox me about anything or even meet up for a coffee when term starts (I'm not that ancient lol, and we are doing history right?!) just say the word
