    I'm going to firm Outdoor Adventure and Environment for September, super excited, who else is going to Ambleside???? I live in France (born in England) so I'd love to know some people before going! Also have some questions for people already on the course: do we get to sail?

    Yes I'm so excited!!! These seven months are going to go by quickly, though. Exams and lots of things to do 😂

    left college a few years ago and been working since, decided now to go to uni and saw this course located in one of my favourite places on earth. My mind was pretty much made up then haha

    you?

    Idk I don't really want to be stuck in a classroom for three years and it gives me a chance to do everything I like so...

    That was the reason I didn't want to go to uni in the first place, never knew a course like this existed!

    Nor did I 😂 I just had this totally random brainwave one day and looked up courses to do with the outdoors etc. The environment/natural sciences side of it is really interesting too.

    Yeah it seems to be the only course that I could find that really combines the adventure side of it with the environmental aspect!

    Exactlyyyyyyy. Plus the location is really stunning and offers lots of opportunities to do things. I'd imagine that the environmental aspect will broaden our career options, too. I've never done any climbing but I'm looking forward to learning.

    Those too 😂 one of the main reasons why I applied. I've been dinghy sailing for years so the lakes are obviously an attraction. And we get to take the boats out whenever we want, which is definitely a plus!!!

    For free as well! I've never sailed before so hopefully I'll get the chance to try it!

    Ah well it's definitely one of the best sports in the world (and I'm totally not biased), could be chilly in the depths of winter though haha.

    You're the first I've found, I think it's a little early atm. You have until March to make a decision on your choices so hopefully by then a few more people will have come forward

    Yeah true. Gotta wait for them to come out of the woodwork 😂 but it think if we've already firmed then in February we're more likely to get our first choice for accommodation

    Nahhhh I don't know yet. Because I'm an expat we're not sure if I'll be able to get a maintenance loan (although my sister did) so I think I'm going to go for one that offers the cheaper accommodation options. I also don't want to be lugging laundry around town so either Helvellyn, Howes or Wansfell I think. You?
