    I'm a little (or a lot) concerned by the degree that I am supposed to study next year. I missed my firm by a lot (offer of ABB, achieved BCE...), but my insurance accepted me anyway (offer of BCC from Chester University).
    I didn't (and still don't) particularly want to go to Chester. It is pretty far from home, and I'm somewhat apprehensive about the course - I have a friend who studied at Northampton who had her course cut half way through, and I'm worried that Chester might also do something like that.
    More concerning is accreditation. I'm pretty sure that the course isn't accredited, but not entirely sure what impact that will have. I've read that the only point studying a non-accredited course is if it is in a subject that doesn't have an accrediting body (like decorative teacosy designing?) or if you don't need a degree in the subject (like, you're just doing it for fun). Is this right?
    Does anyone have any advice on what I should do? I have no problem with not going to Uni this year, but I think my mum is worried that I'll not do anything for a year.
