Hiya, thats great! The nightlife is so good here- theres plenty of clubs and bars, as well as constant student based events so it never gets boring! We also have a student only club which is great! There's also plenty of things to do during the day around the city. In first year I had about 12 hours of lectures a week plus some workshops, problem classes etc. If I attended all of the additional support like problem classes, drop ins etc I wouldn't need to do loads of work outside of that. If you balance your time well there's still plenty of time to join whichever societies and sports you want to as well as socialising- I probably thought I had a similar workload as my friends on other courses. This changes throughout the year though as my friends with loads of coursework/essay based modules/subjects seemed to have a lot more deadlines throughout the year but had much more free time around exam periods etc.
