    haha im still not sure what they like tho :/ the tour guide person didnt give me much info.... some of the accommodation at Wolverhampton (walsall campus) is shocking, its like a 70's concrete jungle or sumit.... but seems way more sociable, i thik its all down to personal preference
    I like to be social but I felt I've met no one here, Headington is the best campus to be at but is half an hour/45 mins away from Harcourt, not worth living there, since all the lectures are based at Harcourt, which reminds me of a school. You're put together with all teachers so it's understandable as to why they do so for the benefits of the course (i.e everyone has placement at the same time); however it's annoying as you don't mix with anyone new/from other courses, a massive part of uni first year.

    And Oxford is tiny, the nightlife gets the same after one night at Lava (the main club to go to). If you come from Cheltenham, Brighton or Aylesbury then you belong here cos you'll find the nightlife "amazing" and varied, when it really isn't!

    Where else have you applied?

    im curious as to know where the wheatley sucicide figure came from.

    Wheatley isnt that bad, honestly. I have classes there and have been in the halls. the rooms r much bigger than those in other halls, with alot getting bigger beds. It is the only catered site as well so if u dont fancy cooking then here is where you should be.

    Its rubbish, i havent heard of there being a suicide there in the 2 and a half years ive been here, if it was that bad there would have been one.

    There has been one suicide in my first year that was at warneford.

    if you look at accommodation for next year on the website it lists the new harcourt building as being self-catered not catered.

    I've applied to do History and Sociology at Oxford Brookes and haven't heard anything from them. I haven't even recieved an application acknolwedgement from them, should i be worried? My grades are higher than what they're asking for and i have offers from elsewhere but it would be nice to know when i might hear from them.

    Don't Worry, if you haven't got a place they would have told you they don't ignore you. Likely-hood is the admissions tutor for your subjects haven't looked at them properly and haven't yet made a decision

    I haven't heard anything either for my course. I am guessing it's because they are waiting till after the deadline before looking at everyone's applications and giving out offers. We already have the requirements, but there could be someone else who is applying which could be better than us :erm:
