    Did the International Baccalaureate in English; for three or so years now been interested in economics and business and teh course in Manchester seemed versatile and suited my interests. Wanted to go to uni abroad and since my English is fluent it seemed like my best bet language-wise so that I'd actually get the most out of my studies. Been studying French quite long too so considered France but the English system with 3yrs for BA and tehn two for MBA or sth is better for me.
    I just graduated this July and am currently at my summer job doing a marketing plan for this new excercising venue in my hometown here in Finland. Must say saving isn't my strong suit either - we'll see how it all goes in Manchester! Just on my lunch break now, looking at flights simultaneously. It's so much more expensive to fly to Manchester from here than to London.

    Where are you working?

    At an Estate Agents, I'm a Secretary and Property Negotiator Assistant. It's been great. Only got 3 weeks left though Your job sounds really cool. Don't you have to pay international fees of like £10,000 or something? Seems ridiculous! Why don't you fly to London and then get the train up to Manchester?

    its sometimes cheaper to fly from heathrow to manchester, if u book in advance it can as cheap as £30 one way on BMI, which is cheaper than some trains cos of all the problems with the west coast mainline! It wud also be easier to get from Manchester airport to the uni than to get from heathrow to euston for the train! depends on price tho!

    Im flying to Heathrow and then getting the train 'up north' cos im gonna spend a few days with my mates in north london beforehand, but if i was to fly im pretty sure it would be really expensive - and you can get a train up for about 45 quid from central london

    I had a gap year too and you'll be surprised how many other people did. So you wont be a year older than that many people. Also, it's just a year, it's not really a significant age gap i don't think.

    That last post, especially the last sentence, was meant to be taken with a hint of sarcasm.

    I applied to Whitworth Park, one of the Grosvenor Group (can't remember which: might have been Grosvenor St. Building) and then Oak House. I don't know which one has been allocated to me; I haven't heard from them yet .
