    HEY yeah i do have a few questions

    Is there a lot of younger (16-20) year olds at the course??
    Did you have a single room? if so do you think that sharing a room would be better for social aspects or did people in a single room socialise just as much??
    Did you attend the Hadrians Wall Trip?
    IS IT WORTH IT?

    thank you x x

    There are a reasonable amount; it's the only one of the 3 summer schools which also has a large amount of older people - which I felt made it a nice mix. There were around 30 16-25 year olds, 10 25-40 year olds and 20 over 40s. It means you get to meet a lot of different people which is nice.

    I shared a room, you pay extra for a single rather than it being random. I was in a room with 6 beds but only 2 of us were in there so it made it very spacious. I would go for sharing if you dont mind it, the facilities are adequate and its nice to have people your age to share with. But if you would like to have your own private space then go for a single. People tended to socialise outside of the rooms, so it doesnt matter either in that regard.

    Yes I did go on the Hadrians Wall trip - it was very nice

    Yes I would recommend it; it's slightly more disorganised than the other 2 summer schools, but it has a more laid back feel and I felt the teaching was more personal and its nice to have a big age range.
