I was wondering if any current/past students at Lancaster university could tell me what life is like there. My dad works nearby in Preston and so it would be great to move up closer to him. I would be studying Fine Art (any replies about Fine Art specifically are more than welcome!)
I understand that Lancaster isn't the most 'happening' place in terms of nightlife and music. Do people tend to travel out to Manchester and Preston for this, or is it just kind of accepted that you just stick to the Sugarhouse and college bars and make do? I know lots of people say that they don't feel that Lancaster is the 'full university experience', but this is usually from people who DIDN'T go to Lancaster and are just assuming - I just wanted to know if anyone who has actually been there could tell me about their experience?
Have you done any of these?
