    Hi what is parking like at the Uni as I am going to be commuting ?
    Students are not normally permitted a car parking permit but there are some exceptions to this which are listed in the Student Car Parking Policy.

    As you are commuting the exception which may apply for you is number 7, which is for students living outside of the core urban area. The link to the map of the core urban area doesn't work but can be found here.

    Hopefully that is helpful, if you have any questions the Car Parking Office can assist by emailing [email protected] or telephoning 01524 592179.

    Thank you, also when do we find out who's in our accommodation with us?
    Sorry for the delayed reply, I needed to confirm this answer with a colleague from our accommodation team. You will only find out on arrival day who you will be living with. Many students often bring something with them to 'break the ice' such as a box of sweets or chocolates or a picture of yourself/your name to put on your bedroom door, though this is entirely your choice of course! Hope that helps

    Trying to choose minors but unable to find out which modules within a course are/are not taken by minors. I doubt there's a free choice so it should be documented somewhere?

    Maths
    Thanks
    There's no formal restrictions on what you can take alongside maths as a minor but popular choices include psychology, economics and philosophy. You don't have to choose your minors until during Welcome Week and they will be explained more fully then.

    Two parter, sorry.
    When meeting with the departments, is it possible to change my major provided I have the grades required for the change?

    If I do maths and computer science part I, is it possible to specialise in Software Engineering in part II?

    Thank you and have a great day!

    As Alice advised you in the Ask the Admissions Team thread, changing your major is something we would recommend you discuss once you arrive at Lancaster.

    In regards to your second question, I believe that you would be able to switch after your first year as Computer Science and Software Engineering are very similar in Part I, though this is something you should discuss with your department once you start your studies.

    Hello, I'm worried about my timetable. I'm doing Economics and International Relations, and on my timetable I only have 2 hours per week of politics and around 3 or 4 hours of economics in the whole term. Is this normal? I'm really interested in Economics so it worries me a lot that I only have like 2 lectures in the whole term.
    Thank you in advance.

    Fylde is pronounced fi-lde (pronounce as if a capital I, not filled!)

    Hope that makes sense!

    There may be a number of reasons for this, one of which may be that you will be asked to pick optional items once you arrive at University (such as the days you have seminars on). In addition, you generally have less contact hours at University as we promote a shift towards independent study. All of this will be explained by your department when you meet with them in Welcome Week, so if you still have any worries, it would be best to discuss them with one of the academic staff then.

    As you say, the first rent payment must be paid on or before the second of October. All payments are made through our secure online portal. If you have any more queries please do not hesitate to contact the accommodation office on +44 (0)1524 594910 or [email protected].

    Hi again, when are adjustment students likely to get their offers for accommodation?
    For the IBS Biomedical Science students, will the non-elective course structure allow for a semester abroad and still lead to accreditation?
    Sorry for the delayed reply, I needed to confirm this response with a colleague from the Faculty of Health and Medicine. I'm afraid you wouldn't be able to study abroad as part of the IBMS accredited degree (B990). If you wanted to study abroad you would have to apply for the flexible Biomedicine (Study Abroad) course (C704). there is also a four year MSci course which enables you to study abroad (C705).
