    It was awesome! Gotta be up at 8 for breakfast though =P Hope that's not a problem, I know it was for me xD

    You get lectures on managing time and finance and stuff, I cant really say all you do because its tonnes! But the evenings were awesome! Spent time in the Source and went into town twice to two clubs (Though I only went on Monday night) and then Karaoke on the last night! Hope I didnt just ruin it all then xD But you did ask lol!

    You'll have a great time! Its an awesome experience and will be so glad you signed up to go!

    Make sure you have plenty of sleep before you arrive, as many people like to stay up late :-)

    Not in a million years, I wish I'd been smart enough to ask that before I went.

    They supply towels, bedding, food, pens (though they're rubbish!), and folders.

    The only things really needed are toiletries, clothes, and money and ID for going out in the evening.

    And you'll probably need to bring a suitcase, most people did. Only the fools (like me ) brought just a rucksack, I sadly found out that 2 changes of clothes was not enough!

    Thanks for sharing that info, will need all the help i can get before i go in August. When you say money, how much on average dya reckon people take/need? as, as i've only been on a night out in manchester i'm unsure how much a 'night out' is in preston as it can be pricey in manchester.

    Cheers for any help!
