You need to get that form done this week mate, i did mine in June and ive just got my final letter yesterday! Plus because the deadlines have passed you are already at the bottom of the queue, the longer you leave it the longer you go without it when the year starts. Suppose it isnt all bad though seen as youve no rent or anything to pay.

Couldn't imagine going to a uni and staying at home. Part of the reason I wanted to go to uni in the first place was to get away, learn some new skills, gain independence and go to new places.

Have had one for years, i just left the University of Ulster there in May. You need one like, so you can use the interest free overdraft facility.

Do yer get a letter sent when they have sorted out your finance form?, reckon mine could be slightly late even though I got it in just before the deadline, I had to send in a form in the post with my parents income as I had forgotten it.

accounting and finace. not too bad, 8 hours a week  :celb: :celb: :celb:

 

Just you wait!

 

8 hours teaching maybe, but to get the most out of any finance related degree you have to put in a lot of out of classroom time. All about applying theory to the real world today.

 

Will be an interesting time to study it to what with the aftermouth of the credit crunch, economic slowdown, high (relative for the last decade or so) inflation etc

Lawlz, you're doing exactly the same course at exactly the same Uni as one of my mates. [/irrelevant]

 

I'm hoping to go to Sunderland too, but it's still another year away for me.

I'm a few years behind me like. When i left school i had the total wrong attitude, and i done fuck all until nearly a year later then i got a job labouring. Was there for a while then i've just pissed about with shit jobs on and off for a few years. So i eventually decided to go to college last year at the age of 21 and i done the First Diploma in ICT and now i'm going onto the National Diploma which will last 2 years. Quite dissapointing that i'm gonna be 24 before i leave college, but i'm not angry with myself for not going when i first left school because i know i would have messed about and been a prat then not passed anyway and i would have totally given up. Doubt i would have went back if that had happened. I've learnt the hard way like i suppose, but i've learnt a lesson and i've got the determination to do it now. Was a few marks of an overall distinction last year (i still lacked a little bit of determination at the end because if i had stuck in a bit more when i had already passed the course, i would have got the distinction i think). Don't know what option i'm gonna take if i pass this course yet. Better late than never i suppose.

My mate does Music Technology and LOVES it.

Theres a unit where you start a band ffs, how fun must that be?

Im a bit nervous for meeting the people on my course

 

Hope not! I'd be useless if I had to play anything, if it's computer based I may scrape through but I was hoping the course would be more the recording/mixing side rather than performance. yeah I am too, it's the same college I've just left which means it's full of emo/zany 16 year olds, ugh.

You get a letter telling you what you are recieving, i got mine about 3 or 4 weeks ago, then you get another one with dates which is the one you take to registration. You can also use their website to find out your status, i knew what i was getting about 2 weeks before i got the letter about it.
