    I'm looking to apply to just Economics. When are you planning to send your UCAS application off?

    Anyone know if the joint honours courses less competitive than the single honours, or are they just the same.

    Also do they have the same number of places for each course?

    Im currently on course to have my UCAS form sent of before the start of October and as far as I know, joint honours courses tend to be slightly less competitive. Dont know about the places though.

    I suggest you look on their websites for details, sometimes they will detail the number of people they are willing to take. From what I know this year...... it's smaller in size compared to the other departments.

    They upped up some of their essay based subjects :/
    At least it shows their getting more in demand............ You can do it as long as you can show them that you can offer something no one else can

    Yea, at the open day today I heard the numbers! Were you there?
    And yeah you're right I guess, it's just that I just failed a group interview for a job so kinda confidence knocked but i'm just hoping my passion for englit comes across better than how much I wanted a waitrose job! Where else are you applying?
