    Cardiff and Exeter are lurvely. Reading, in my experience, is a bit of a hole though. Mind you, I didn't like Nottingham, and lots of people do, so it's very personal. What did you think of Notts?

    I went to Exeter, Nottingham, Birmingham, Cardiff, Oxford, Warwick and Reading last year, and next year I'm planning on going to Newcastle, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds and Bristol. But then, it will be my second year of applying.

    Which isn't always a good idea. Make a list of Universities you're interested in, then narrow it down and see if you can visit a few. When you get to deciding on the final six it usually helps if you've visited the universities beforehand.

    I'm going to lincoln, hull, bradford, salford, and de monfort.

    I hope they display the 2005 dates on their as well, because their websites on display the open days that are form sept - dec 2004.

    Bradford and de monfort open days are on the same day, do you think I should go to both or one of them, or go to one of them in 2005?

    Ooh you should go to the portsmouth one! The university isn't on the same level as those others, but we have lots of nice shops, and at the end of the day thats the most important thing.

    They have the dates of open days in 2005 as well as 2004.

    Low budget airlines.

    By all means whittle down your options so you're not making 50 Easyjet flights across to the mainland, but it doesn't cost much for cheap airlines nowadays.

    Easyjet fly to Bristol, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Glasgow, Liverpool, Luton, Newcastle, Stansted.

    Bmibaby fly to Cardiff, Manchester, Nottingham East Midlands, and Teesside.

    Jet2.com fly to Leeds/Bradford Int.

    The whole of the country covered.

    That or go foot passenger on the Irish Sea services !! :eek: (£20 Dublin - Liverpool return (Seacat))
