    Hey guys!!
    I thought i'd let you know that Leeds was the last uni I heard from when I got my offer for zoology. I applied on the 17th of november and on the 6th this month I got a conditional offer of AAB (I didn't get a confirmation email off of them so don't worry if you don't get one!!).
    Best of luck to you all and hopefull I may some of you in september x

    What is the conservation area like there? Do you get to do a lot of field work in your 1st year?

    There's a volunteer club that does conservation work every... Wednesday afternoon I think. There's also an area called Harris gardens, where a lot of the work is done- it's a really pretty park area, but it's quite hidden away and it used to grow loads of different species of plants. As far as I know, that's as close as it comes to a specific "conservation area", although when you come here you will probably notice that as the campus is mainly parkland there is a fair amount of field work in the Ecology module in first year that happens on campus. There is also a compulsory field trip to Sussex, Borneo or Devon (it used to be Cumbria, which is the one that I went on, but then it changed so I can't tell you much about the other ones. However, the vast majority of the field courses will be field work). There's also the Cole Museum, which you can volunteer in and which is really useful, especially in third year!
    Hope that helps!

    I liked it It is a city, but a small one which is probably why I liked it :P The city is nice - good for shopping. Supermarkets close to uni. The surrounding area is beautiful as well. The department was quite dated but nothing wrong with it really :L just looked a tad dated... I'm probably going to go back to look at the accomodation and stuff but that all looked pretty modern
    I've applied to Bangor, Aber, Swansea, Reading (got offers) and waiting to hear from Exeter
    Anything else i've missed just ask

    Wow! Congrats!!! Im sure you will get an offer from Exeter! Many thanks for your help, Bangor seems really cosy! Never lived in a city before, so glad I have that as a backup! Did you attend any lectures there by the way??? Thanks!

    Nice!!! Wow, well done for getting in this year!I really want to get into Leeds too! What do you find its like there??? Is the course content interesting? When I applied to Leeds I choose it primerily becasue the course looked fascinating,(plus got a brother in York!) but it would be great to hear what a student who's in there thinks! What about the area for work experience in parks or zoos? Is it easy to find work there? Thanks so much for being patient with all my questions!
    ps: What work experience did you do in your gap year if you dont mind me asking?

    I'm really worried about Exeter because it's the only one I haven't heard from yet and I sent my UCAS off ages ago It's my favourite as well!!

    Same! I applied for the year abroad course and the 3 year one. I'll be gutted if I don't get an offer for either!
