    I was just wondering who might be going to Bolton 15/16 in September to do games art

    I would just like to know your feelings and thoughts about going as I feel nervous going and just discuss anything else. Thanks ^_^

    If all goes to plan I'll be there, but I'll be starting on the second year since I'm currently finishing up my HND in Games Development.

    Really excited to start, need to plan my means of transport though since I'll be coming in from Manchester. Oh, and I should probably open up Maya and get used to that instead of 3DS Max. XD

    Why the nerves? ^^

    I should have expected that lol my bad. I've just stopped reading people's username on here, it really messes with your brain when you're dyslexic

    As for getting used to the whole feeling of being at uni. It should be a gradual transformation and as we are a small and friendly University you should fit in much easier and the first couple of weeks of freshers activities and just familiarising youself will help. You mention that you've been out of education and slightly worried about fitting in. I can assure you will not be the only student in this situation plus we have a dedicated student services department that are there to help in all situations. Have you joined the freshers and university Facebook groups?
