Choosing where to go to university is a tricky business - unless of course you're a pre-destined Oxford/Cambridge applicant, or you have a line of predecessing sibblings/friends/lovers who have all studied at a particular institution and claim it is the best. However, for the rest of us slightly...

I recently had a message in my guestbook, asking about Lancaster Uni, so I figured I may as well write my next op on it! Lancaster Uni has a lot of pro's, and a lot of con's. I'll go through the pro's first, then go onto the bad side. And you can all make up your own minds! **PRO'S** Academicaly...

ConsThe weather... and there's no hope for that!

At school, I was always told that I should be aiming for a place at Oxford or Cambridge when it came to choosing a university. Now I had no idea what course I wanted to do, only that I wanted to get as far away as possible from my school and that there was no way I wanted to go somewhere that I...

Myself Im currently a third year at Lancaster Uni and studying Business Studies, so as you will guess I know quite a bit about the place! The main reason that I chose to go to Lancaster was the reputation of the management school. I was informed that it is thrid best in the country (with London...

I had always wanted to go to Lancaster University, ever since my parents drove me round the campus when I was 13. First impressions were extremely good. A long widing road, with grass and trees on either side, takes you up to the campus and almost instantly one can see that students are set back...

ConsLack of funding

Firstly Uni life is pretty much excellent for everyone, so I'll do away with the 'I had the best time of my life comments'. Of course I did, and so do the vast majority of students. But lets be objective about this... Lancaster University is a large college based university. It boasts what could...

“The Best Uni Ever”

ProEverything - a fantastic place to go to University

ConsNot great for those who like big cities.

When I went to the visit day before I applied to UCAS I decided that I definitely wanted to be at Lancaster University. The place is set in an attractive location among hills, fields and a ring of trees. Everything is situated 'on campus'- and there are banks, shops and tons of places to eat...

Although I have never actually been a student at Lancaster University my best friend went there, so I regularly went to stay with her. I think it is quite a big Uni really, it has lots of good amenities and facilities. Its a Uni that I think is developing all the time, The 12 bars on campus have...

I am not a student at Lancaster University but I have applied to go there for entry in 2001. So why I am writing an opinion on it then? Well after seeing the prospectus I decided that this was the place I wanted to go, however, not being too hasty I arranged for a guided tour, I had this tour on...

ConsThe list is too long

I went to Lancaster University in 1997 for four months. Having spoken to students subsequently, I don't think much has changed. I'm afraid I can't be positive about my experience there. There are some good things - I haven't come across a university library as well stocked and laid out; the...

ConsA bit isolated from the city, weather!

I was enrolled on a postgraduate one-year course. The modules offered were very interesting and the syllabus challenging. Overall, the lecturers are very competent and helpful. I particularly found the block-week structure for modules very useful in concentrating fully on the current module and...

I am firmly of the opinion that University life is at least as much social as educational. This especially applies to your first year where you are thrust into a teeming maelstrom of nervous youths and have to use your own personal qualities to keep your head above water. Basically you get out of...
