    This was of my own volition, by the way, as I'm off to do more Postgraduate.
    Now, in the three months before I start in Manchester what can I do? So far I have:
    1) Reading
    2) Cycling
    3) Growing a beard

    Beard?
    Is that a requirement to be a post grad?

    In addition to the beard...

    Think you need to sew some leather/faux-leather patches onto the elbows of an old tweed jacket.
    Obtain sandals and wear them with socks.

    That's definitely the answer. During which you can read, cycle, and grow a beard.

    Is it peer pressure preventing you from growing one? ;)

  14. Brooks saddle with massive springs, and an old leather briefcase that looks like a Scotsman's wallet... ie: old, battered, contains nothing and is hardly ever opened except to give moths the right to light...;)
    (Postgrads in Madchester these days eat ciabatta at Pret a Manger...no need to carry sandwiches to 'studies' either).

    I've just finished an MA at Manchester and I can assure you I never ate pret a manger ciabatta butties. Although I did live in Chorlton so there was plenty of opportunity for right on organic, hand knitted yoghurt and the like to eat while reading the Guardian.
