    Ok, don't worry too much about reading lists etc. You are not really expected to have done reading in advance for most subjects. If they want you to work in advance they will let you know- have you got the big *green* book of Part 1 courses yet? It will give you some guidance.
    The timetable business looks a lot more complicated than it is. What it says is that if you are doing EPR 100 you will have one lecture on Thursday at 4.00and one on Friday at 1.00. This will be the same every week until the middle of summer term (weeks 1-24 of the academic year.) For Religious Studies (RSt 100) you have one lecture on a Tuesday at 2.00. All the other courses are Part 2 and you don't need to worry about them.
    You will also have seminars (prob 1-2 per week) to add to your timetable after you register in Fresher's Week, and if you have a 2nd minor that will have to be added as well.

    Don't worry too much. I don't do EPR, but I do RSt, and if there's anything you need to read,the library or a reading pack will suffice.

    that, and Paul Fletcher, the guy who oversees EPR and the first year of religious studies, is a lovely chap. So if you run into any problems, then he'll happily sort you out!
