When you get to University, you might be surprised at how much free time you’ve got on your hands. Your contact hours will drop from what you’re used to and – if you’re lucky (or tactical with your timetabling!) – you could even find yourself with a mid-week weekend.
It’s all too easy to spend those days off lounging in bed, eating cereal or recovering from a hangover: but to make the most of your time at University, you should get together with some friends and see what your Uni town or city has to offer.
Lancaster is a small city with a lot of hidden gems. Not only that: it’s very close to Blackpool, the Lake District, Manchester and Liverpool. You’ve got some of the country’s most iconic places right on your doorstep here so make the most of it!
