... so hopefully that will get all approved ASAP. I've been busy selecting the classes I want to take. I have a good mix of Spanish language and culture classes as well German and so history classes. I've also been looking into accomodation for when I'm in Hull. Idealy I'll get a spot in the campus-run houses or the larger dorm-style residence.
I can't tell you much more about that part of the trip for now, as things aren't fully organised yet. It ...
