Here are some things I wish I would known before going to university. No matter how much you enjoy cooking, you definitely will not need a mortar or a pestle. If you hand in your essays at midday and you have a tutorial or seminar at three, it is not a great idea to start celebrating early. Five hours in the library twice a week is not a lot, even if it sounds like it
I love The Uni It has Got An Amazing Feel Of Home For Me !!
Really Good Smaller Uni Right In The City Centre , Definatly the uni to come to if you like smaller Universities but want to be Closer to the City plus graduating in the York Minster Is Amazing
Course and Lecturers
The lectures are amazing , as they always try to give us a hand and lead us. The course work is though out the year so no exams which is great for me and the number of hours in lectures is enough so that way i feel like i am in university life but not to much
I Love my accomidation as it is en-suite and is big and i live with really quiet people so i can relax in quiet but the "party" halls the grange are right by if you want to party.It is also one of the closest off campus houses being litrally a 7 minite walk even at a slow pace, only downsides are that as it is that at £92 a Week for a large room it is pretty pricey
York Is someone between Rural And Urban , It Has The advantages of living near the country but with the conviences of living near a city with all the mod cons especailly with the History of the walls and the minster , it would suit a sort of person that liked this especailly Theology ( Due to the minster and) and History due to the history of the city but really anyone would like it BUT if your a person that likes a variety of clubs and partying it might not be for your as there is a grand total of 4 night clubs in york but we make do and there is always the SU
The Libary is well stocked and everything is easy to find especailly since there is a libarian assigned to every department and you can made session with them if in need of particular help. Wireless though out the libary and in some uni buildings and in SU , the SU is small but suffices but been up dated this year with addintional outside areas
Clubs and Societies
A wide range of clubs and activities to choose from mainly sports but some other such as CU or ScifI CLUB but not really member of any so dont know
Don't really attend only in fresher just not my place but flatmates love it and says it brill
University does PGCE in Religious Teaching so looks really good and even does addiational award for catholic Teaching teachers
Having said what you have said would you recommend your uni?
Spend more time than anything else in the company of those you live with. they will be your friends for at least a year. The people that did not make the big effort in the first few days and weeks seemed to get less from the overall experience of university.
do not become trapped within your flat. All too often, people in a flat will just hang out with each other and not bother to move in wider circles, and after a few weeks a sort of cabin fever can ensue. You were put in a flat randomly with these other people, you can not be expected to get on and hang out with every single one. Try and make friends with people in other flats earlier on, before people get locked in their comfort zone
