    I've also applied to Leicester and UEA.
    I didn't get to attend a Leicester open day, so what did you think of the dept and what was the uni as a whole like? (Presuming you attended an open day).


    Had offers from:

    UEA - ABB (IR and Modern History)
    Aber - 300 points inc 1 A-Level B. (IntPol and IntHis)
    Hey!
    Yeah i did attend an open day for Leicester. I was quite impressed. The campus is lovely, the department all see friendly and close knit. All the pol+IR department and passionate. The Lecturer who was also the admissions tutor for the dept seemed quiet lenient on entry - in terms of qualifications he said he'd accept any Alevels - inc General Studies, Finance etc, aslong as the candidate can show their absolutely passionate about the subject.

    I went to UEA open day aswell, (but i didnt attend the Pol lectures as i was looking at a different subject at the time). Im comparison UEA seemed more 'professional' than Leicester. But Leicester is a nicer looking uni and city (in my opinion) so at the moment im pretty torn which one to choose for my firm choice!

    Hey - thanks that would be so helpful! May I ask, how you honestly feel about the course and whether it's lived up to your expectations?

    I'm only in first year so I only have experience of 4 modules.

    What are your exact interests?
    I'm interested in Asia but I don't have any modules on that region specifically. You can write essays based on your interest though, so that's fine.

    I'm happy with the course.

    Some modules are difficult for me: the one on Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli. Etc.
    Your course may not have this module though.
