    Every case is different. Maybe someone liked it more made loads more friends, and someone else hated it and regretted it.
    Why do you want to change unit?

    Hello,

    I've never been through this personally but have friends that have been.
    It isn't much different to starting university as normal - of course, experiences can differ. You'll enter a course where everybody is still really open and you can make friends and what not - then you'll enter ones where everybody has their 'cliques' and such and it can be difficult. However, it's the same as usual, it depends how much effort and how approachable you are in order to make friends.

    Finding a flat/accommodation works along the same principle really, look at halls and such - if not, look for people advertising rooms. Look at the student section of 'RightMove' and other such websites - it isn't too hard!

    Good luck!

    Thanks for response, the course I want to move to has option to study abroad which I want to do, also I'm at Newcastle university and originally from the north east and regret not moving away and experiencing somewhere different. (Even thought the NE is great)
