I've only recently decided to attend York University, where I'll be pursuing an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience.
I've never actually been to York before, and will therefore have no friends when I get there. As I've only recently made the decision to attend, it seems that all the Campus Accommodation is full. Therefore I'll need to find myself a Studio Flat in the City Centre, which is approximately 30 minutes away from the University.
Although I'm not overly worried about being a loner for the next year, it would be nice to have some people I can go out with.
What's the best way to make friends down at York University? Is it worth going to Freshers' week (by myself)? Are there any events?
I've not been to any open days or inductions, due to only recently deciding I'd like to attend, which makes things worse.
Can it be done?
