    So who out there is applying to go to Worcester and what for? I'm applying for Archaeology and ecology and it's my first choice (just I think) because its the only place that allows me to combine these and I'm enjoying A level archaeology so much that I wish I could carry it on. Plus doing this joint would set me up with a chance to work for UNESCO because I could do both the archaeology and biodiversity side or also for National Trust/English Heritage.

    You remebered to quote, yayyy lol.
    Well, were should I start. When I got to Worcester I was shocked by the number of students walking to the university with folders and books. This clearly shows they students are well organised and dedicated to work.When I got to the St Johns campus (Not the one in town) I had to find a parking space, there's loads of carparks however, it was rammed yesterday because the pay and display machines had been covered with plastic bags, so nobody had to pay (Only because it was an open day). When I finally found a spot, I parked up, ate an apple (Random, Yes I know). Then I finally got the balls to get off my fat ass and go to the reception (I found it easily, everything was signposted and directed). I signed my name and was given a bag to hold the freebies etc. I then walked around before talking to the course lecturers. I saw the cafe (Looks nice, nice food, nice quiet place to read/revise and very warm). I then saw the gym (Nice place to train, they've got everything). Everone seemed friendly and acknowledged we were new, so they offered loads of help. I then checked out some of the accomodation rooms (They were lovely, plasma TC's, mini-fridges, clean toilets and showers). I then went to the library and it's amazing, loads of computers, books on everything and all you can eat fruit bar (Cost 1 pound per student). They have a tea/coffee machines as well. nearly everywhere you turned had vending machines and water fountains and you know in Argos they have those pencil holders, the university has loads of them filled with rulers, pens and pencils across the corridors, so you'll never need to borrow off friends:eek::eek: The lecture halls were huge and everything else concerning learning rescources was brilliant.
    PS- They're building a bar and pool room, which should be up and running next month

    Did I help?

    Hi, just to add a note to the thread for those applying or thinking of applying to Worcester uni.
    I did my BSc (Hons) degree there. Totally mint place, some awesome lecturers and keep getting awards for the standard of education.
    I'm off to Worcester today, applying for 2011 for a PhD research place.

    Wish you all the best of luck with your applications wherever you're going, hopefully i'll be at Worcester and will see some of you there.

    Cheers.

    How's everyone's applications going? Got my offer from Worcester a couple of weeks ago now archaeology & heritage studies and ecology of 260 UCAS points. It might be my firm or insurance. I'm still not sure whether it would be better to concentrate purely on ecology or study archaeology as well as I find it interesting. Also I've found out that the woman that did the talk on the open day who was not very enthusiastic about it and put me off it isn't even an ecology lecturer. So do they have open days after you get an offer because I could really do with having another look around and actually being told about the ecology course more by an ecology lecturer.
