I am considering going there for physics so

It is a beautiful campus based university that has a small student population and excellent up to date sports facilities. I do believe that more introverted people go there so it might not be a 'party university' like Manchester or Birmingham and it also is described as having a community feel to it and even though I'm applying there I literally can't remember anything more than that

Are you likely to firm it?

I'm contemplating whether to go to Lancaster for computer science, I have doubts about the costs and the idea of living away though.

Very likely. Have you looked into the costs of living at university? I assume you are aware of the maintenance loan and if you check the amount you are entitled to against the cost of accommodation + food, travel, events and nights out, washing machine/tumble dryer usage and extra equipment for the course, you should be able to identify how much money you really need.

Hope this helps

Thanks, that really does help but I know I am only entitled to the lowest amount for the maintenance loan because of how much my dad earns, however, I am too scared to plan for living in university accommodation lol

Roughly £4000 is going to be your loan, amount? I'd recommend looking at bursaries, scholarships anything like that but also part time jobs which would be good to do anyway because then you get experience and something to put on your cv so it works out great. lol I know how that feels and it is big responsibility. Just know that taking on anything that scares you will build your confidence

No you won't be, Lancaster has 13,000 so I compared it with somewhere like Manchester which has around 40,000 students.

Edit: I should probably add that you could look at the Student Union - https://lancastersu.co.uk

It's hard for me to say but it's quiet to some extent though but you'll like it if you're introverted
