Liverpool or Manchester URNU

Hi
Just looking for some info about recruitment to a URNU I am starting at the University of Central Lancashire in September and trying to join a URNU but I got in touch with Liverpool and they told me it was Manchester to join and Manchester tell me its Liverpool.
I was just wondering if there was any uclan students in that could help me.

I am 26 and was in the RAF for 5yrs and was looking for some info on recruitment and what the medical is like.

It’s more learning new skills and socialising which I think a URNU would be just what I am looking for really. And no offence taken lol.

As a former member of M&S URNU I can state categorically that UCLAN Students go to Manchester. Only ever had one though. If you want any further details pm me.

From a purely admin point of view, Manchester is a lot easier to get to from Preston.

Trains to Liverpool form Preston are v. awkward

I did think that Manchester was going to be the answer as the RN website says that the URNUs recruit from areas within an hour's travel to them by public transport. When I looked at the train timetables, it seemed to me that the journey times from UCLAN to Manchester were generally under that hour, but that the journey times from UCLAN to Liverpool were over an hour.

Do you think someone has warned them about you?

Seriously, give it a go. My daughter was in the URNU at Uni and she loved it, and got a lot out of it too.

(Mostly hangovers, but she can passage plan, apparently.)

We will be put on Oxford Road recruiting during Fresher's week. During Fresher's week, just pop along to the unit for a chat and to make yourself known, and to sign up for our recruiting night (usually a presentation, beer and pizza). At the recruiting night, sign up for an interview and then just go with the flow!
