Excellent, congrats!

I have family in Bristol and IIRC my aunt is the head chef or something at UWE. Or maybe she used to be.

So no saying the food's rubbish

Congrats. Don't get so hard set on your initial study emphasis though. College is about exploration: physical and intellectual. I never thought I'd be in the profession I'm in now. Use the opportunity to broaden your knowledge with different types of classes, if it's a liberal arts college of course. I don't know.

Took a year out after 6th form, planned to go to uni, but ended up in a partnership running PC repair shops.

Not going to uni has been great.

Congrats though

Lol, my brother is a fresher at UWE doing business. Seems to enjoy, but the first year didn't look that challenging, basic A level business concepts and work on information systems such as databasing.
