    Hey all

    Im heading for Lincoln uni for my first year in September to study business and management. Im 24 and a so called "mature" student. I still enjoy crazy nights out and the messing about that us lads do.

    Love to hear back from people on the same course and also I've chosen to stay at aquahouse so if anyone has any info on that it would be great.

    Bring on September

    Hi! I'm a second year Business Studies student @ Lincoln. We only do one module different to you in the first year so if you have any questions or looking to buy your textbooks then give us a holla :

    As for being a 'mature' student, I really don't think it matters. I'm 19 going on 20 but I'm friends with people who 21 and 30. From my experience, they party just as hard if not harder!

    I found a few of the older students tend to be better to work with and are nicer as they have had a few years out from education!

    Hope you enjoy Lincoln

    Hey that's great, how do you find your degree so far? I was originally for doing a science based degree, like forensic science or some sort of chemistry based degree, I studied science for my alevels and have not done any business related learning since gcse level, so yea a huge direction change in course, just hope I can keep up with all the young guns who studied business at a-levels.

    Oh there's still alot of party left in me, I haven't properly been on a night out in ages except for the odd wee bar.

    How do you find Lincoln? You enjoying it?

    I really enjoy my degree. I did business at A Level and GCSE so I knew a fair bit before I started.

    First year is pretty much teaching you everything from scratch. I know people who have done completely different a levels like yourself, and have flown through this year. I think if you get yourself involved, try your best and have an interest then you will be perfectly fine.

    You will find there are some older people on the course, if us young ones get a little annoying. I've friends with a lady who has two kids, her own business and decided to come to uni for the fun of. There are loads of different people doing Business courses.

    I personally love Lincoln. I think it definitely is the uni and the place for me to be. Everything is in walking distance and there is no need to catch a bus or anything to get where you want to go. The only thing is the supermarket is quite far out but I tend to shop around on the High Street and go to the fruit and veg market so it's cheaper anyway

    That's good very glad to hear it. When I turned 17 I joined the army as an infantry soldier and left last year so just adapting to the whole civilian way of things.

    I live in Northern Ireland so I just need to book my flights and that's me sorted. I lived in Shropshire for 6 years and cant wait to return to England.

    Whats the possibility of a part time job while studying, how many days / hours are you in uni a week.

    Yea I was looking on google maps at the location and it looks like a nice spot to me, also everything within walking distance just makes it ideal.

    You have 4 hours of long lectures, and 4 hours of seminars a week and the occasionall extra one so you should be able to hold down a part time job while studying

    Everything is so close together and you are within a mile of everything!

    Oh sounds handy enough, I've applied for a few jobs and now just waiting for interviews. Ive also applied to re-join the army as a reserve which I just got through successful this morning and now I just need to choose which unit to go to.

    A few extra pound for the double vodka redbull fund is critical.
