    Thank you! I just kept it to computing but discussed the units done in my IT course and work experience and wrote about how it would link to the degree for e.g. problem solving, team work etc. Good luck to you too! I'll let you know how it all goes
    Ah nice thanks for the tips pretty much what I’m doing now, I might get a placement next year and apparently I’m doing a Cisco project as well which I could probably put on my statement, I will let you know when I send it off 👍🏾

    Course: chemical engineering MEng
    Predictions: A*A*A*A*
    Other Unis : Cambridge, Loughborough, Birmingham and probably Strathclyde

    Hoping to hear back soon as I’d love to have an offer in the bag. Visited for a headstart course and it was really nice except for the food and the 3 am fire alarm. Almost getting stranded in Crewe on the way home wasn’t great either!
    I’m thinking the exact same as Lancaster is the final offer I’m waiting for (Oxford has their own process and Durham don’t make decisions till gone January!) They said they’d be back to me ‘very soon’ but that was over 2 weeks ago now which doesn’t seem like very soon to me. Also Crewe is really the LAST place you’d want to be stranded! It’s an absolute trash hole ahaha! (Slightly bitter because I’m unlucky enough to live there.)

    Good luck with your Offers!!

    To be honest the only area of Crewe I saw was the station but when you’re there and the last train home gets cancelled it doesn’t become your favourite place.
    Good luck with your Oxford application.

    Oh do you have accommodation over there or travel? I live near Nelson so idk if i'm going to live on campus or take transport i still have time to think about it but its going to be a problem :confused:
    Most students in first year live on campus but some, like myself, live off campus but still in Lancaster. Most people in second year onwards then live off campus. It is quite a small city so it doesnt take very long to get anywhere. Coming in from Nelson should be fine. I know people who drive from Manchester and Preston every day.

    Lancaster is the most beautiful city I have ever visited, the campus was so amazing, talking to tutors and the students there really confirmed it as the place I wish to go, hence the double application

    yes definitely! let me know when you hear...I'll be putting my application in in the next two -three weeks. is this your first choice?
    I haven't really decided on my first choice as yet as I'm waiting for offers to come through before I make my mind up (plus I really like all of the unis I applied to so it'll be tough to decide ). I think if I get an offer for nat sci at Durham that'll probably be my first but they say that they don't make offers until January so it's going to be a long wait.
    Is Lancaster your first choice?

    It's a first come, first served basis. Last year I got an offer 10 working days after applying.

    Nope, I'm taking a year off and reapplying to try for some other places after getting A*A*A. Lancaster remains one of my choices, though.

    I now have an offer from my second choice for my firm, so I don't actually know if I'll bother taking Lancaster up if they give me an offer.

    Hi👋🏻 I’ve applied for the same courses and I’m also currently doing an access course and predicted all distinctions! Haven’t heard back yet though, sent my application off a couple weeks ago!
