    I have a conditional for international development, social anthropology and politics with overseas experience. I'm going to visit the uni next week but with any luck it will be my first choice

    I totally fell in love with it! Unlike other unis I had visited, UEA had a whole department specialised in International development. They did explain the modules, however I can't remember what they were! But I'm sure it's on their website but defiantly put UEA as your number one choice. What others unis have you applies for?

    Yeah, I like the idea that it is a whole department specialising in the subject. I'm putting it as my first choice hopefully but my other choices are Leeds, Chester, Derby and then Hull which is a slightly different type of course.

    Does anyone have an invite for a Visit Day yet? I'm going on the 15th February.

    I was going to Apply for Leeds - however was massively disappointed on the open day. I could not gather hardly any information on inter dev and they couldn't answer any of my questions. Aghh. I applied for Sussex and Essex also for dev do you go on the UEA open day?

    I went on the open day in the summer but once you get an official offer through UCAS you get sent some information about a visit day which is like an open day but more specific. There's a programme of the day on their website: (www.uea.ac.uk/visitdays).

    I get what you mean about Leeds, when I went it was OK but not great-think it was focused more on the Politics and the other subjects which were part of the same department.

    Which DEV courses have people applied for? I applied for the one with Overseas Experience, it sounds like a really good aspect of the course.

    My UEA pack came through the post yesterday! 15th of Feb visit day invite - not sure whether to go or not? Are you going? And I applied for two UEA dev courses because I really wanted to get into UEA! I chose inter dev by itself and dev with social anthropology, politics with over seas! And other dev courses I have applied for are at Sussex, Essex and Portsmouth ( which i'm kinda regretting) ... What about you?

    Yes I'm going on the 15th Feb, I live 5 hours away but it's half term If anything, it lets you see more of the Uni and Accomodation again but also you get to chat with lecturers and current students. Have a look at the programme for the day on the link I posted earlier and see if you think it's worthwhile. It's upto you.

    I've applied to Leeds, Chester, Derby and then Hull which is a different course type.

    Hi I'm just gonna casually hijack the thread and say that UEA is badass and you should all definitely come here.

    On a slightly related note, I walk past the Int Dev department every Thursday to get to a seminar, woot

    Hey all you empathetic developers :P

    I've applied for International Development at UEA, Sussex, SOAS. I'm swayed towards Sussex right now because they have the Institute of Developing Studies there and also SOAS, if I do get an offer to SOAS which is slim. What does UEA have that could sway me back?

    I got offers from UEA (ABB) and Sussex (AAB/A*BB), I haven't visited Sussex - but I totally fell in love with UEA! The area was amazing, the course looked amazing!!

    Ah cool, what's the feel of the uni like? Did it have lots of student activism? What I liked about sussex was that there was a lot of alternative culture. I went to York last year and it was full of stuck up Abercrombie-esque wearing bigots....

    If you are interested in Development then SOAS may be an option to consider - they are well known for development. Also 'my' uni does Development Studies if you fancy going Manchester

    Yup, i've applied to SOAS . I already have my grades with an AAB but SOAS are looking for AAA. I'm just applying there on the off chance they like my personal statement because I think i've gained a lot of experience from my year at uni, although I hated a lot of the course.

    I don't know, the thing that puts me off UEA is that they had "climate-gate". That really doesn't make me trust the academic staff too much when they sex up their results... I'm sure all uni's do it, but the fact that UEA were found out makes it a bit iffy...
