    Really torn between these two Universities!! I've got offers from both of them (to do Design) but no idea which I should put down as my firm?? If you have chosen one of these unis already, as your firm choice, can you tell me why?

    Hi! I'm a current third year at UCLan so I can offer a good insight into what student life is like here.

    It's not a huge city but it has everything you could want from the ideal university experience, besides the busy-ness of larger cities like Liverpool and Manchester. There is a good student atmosphere - all the uni buildings are close to accommodation and town and the nightclubs etc. You can also live in more residential areas (student housing) further away from campus, as I did in my second and third year.

    The university itself provides lots of support for students such as WISER (study skills help), the <i> in the Library (support for all aspects of uni life) and a Student Wellbeing service (you can get an appointment fairly quickly).

    If you're doing Design you'll be based in the Media Factory which has some really cool facilities - your best bet is to come to an Open Day so you can get a feel for the campus yourself. The next one is Saturday 25th March and you can register here.

    Sorry I can't offer any advice about Chester but if you want to know anything else just let me know!

    Molly
