I'm going into my final year of product design and technology in Ireland. Really enjoy the course and think it's a great base to do whatever you want after uni- even a few options within the paddling world ;)

Really fun and real world useful degree, it's a blast ;)

Bangor rocks, but by looking at the amount of freshers we have posting about going boating in resit week, we spend quite a few too many hours boating! I still think boating in the dark the night before an exam was a great idea! Unfortunatly my results didn't reflect this! lol
Go to Bangor, its awesome! Just dont clunk too much!

I hope* they get some monster assignments, becase 3 hours is bloody rediculous!

*in the nicest possible way, and not at paddling times.....

It has to be more than 3 hours! I get 6 hours contact time a week and that seems to be the minimum for all our courses. I do get loads of assignments...I do...really!

Firstly I have to say I am deeply upset to be not going back to uni in September due to the fact that I've graduated. This saddens me particularly because I didn't start boating till my final year so missed out on 3, yes, THREE prime years of boating (this probably directly contributed to me passing all my exams)

And secondly you're all part timers apart from Cam who clearly knows what a decent course is!

What's Chemistry then? ;)

Are you the Emma that was on a course with Tom P at CT a while ago, when I was severely hungover?

Firstly, congratulations.

Secondly, Oxford has apparently has a very strong club and compete against Cambridge every year as it's a half blue sport.

Classy

Next year, but the chances of a boating related argument having me living in a tent for the last year of my A-levels is increasing dramatically.

Whoops, must be the fact I'm watching boating DVDs and Photoshopping, and on here.

RE boating unis, man up, its you, not your parents who are going to Uni! Took my dad a couple of days to get over that!!

Yep, I paddle with Oxford (though no longer a student myself - I live in Oxford and pretend to work every now and then...). There are some pretty reasonable paddlers around - it's not the biggest student club - but is pretty active and there are generally people to paddle/drink with most of the time (except encouraging Oxford students that they want to miss their lectures in favour of paddling at Hurley every morning of the week is more difficult than it would be in some other places!)

Stuart (currently sitting in an internet cafe in Katmandu waiting to head up paddling in Tibet and wondering why thinking that spending a week of doing cultural things was a good idea when I could have gone and done some boating...)

New uni paddlers

Post by lochie99 »

What is the score with non uni paddlers paddling with uni clubs. I have just returned to the UK and joining a proper club sends shivers down my spine due to past experiance.
I know some places have old boys groups and i have a few years ago paddled with derby uni which was a good laugh.

I met some Sheffield paddlers a while back at Sunbury. One was doing physical geography and the other human I think.
