Uni open days - Doing the rounds?

My eldest is hoping to be off to university in a years time, and wants to study Marine Biology or Marine environmental science.

We've been down to The Penryn Campus of Exeter Uni last Saturday.

Off to Plymouth Tomorrow.

And up to Bangor on Saturday.
Thinking of finding a travel lodge Friday night for this one.

Anyone else being a long distance Taxi service at the moment?

Apart from anything else, Penryn was lovely, I'm tempted to become a mature student at the moment.

Liverpool is awesome as a Uni destination and I have lots of Vet mates that loved it. I am not long out of uni and liked liverpool so much I bought a house in it! (though a move is on the cards due to GFs job)
