    Hii everyone!
    So i've applied to bath uni to study sociology starting this october, will probably put it as my firm choice but not sure whether to put warwick wah dilemma!

    just curious to see who else has applied to/heard from bath and if so what are you hoping to study? also what attracted you to bath?

    Heyaa
    Ive applied for sociology to, and also hopefully going to put it as my firm choice Got an offer for AAB which is going to be a bitch to get but hopefully i can! The thing that attracted me to bath is that its a good university and good enough night life and near bristol where SOOO many of my freinds live/go to uni.
    I decided not to apply to warwick over bath because from what ive heard its got a terrible night life.
    Im so excited i just want to go know!

    ooh nice one! i've only been using this site for like, a day, but it seemed that there were no pages for sociology, seemed like i was the only one haha. ooh sounds good yeah me too haha they said they'd offer me ABB at the open day and they didn't - messed my master plan of bath being my firm and insurance at the same time (if that makes any sense!?) yeah that's why i think i will reject my offer from warwick and plus on the warwick tread they all got like 15 A*s at gcse which just isn't like me at all! SAME YAY

    nice!

    it depends really, for my firm its out of bath, nottingham and UEA

    for my insurance definetly reading ... so much better than hertfordshire lol

    but UEA have a strong reputation for pharmacy since they started running the course and nottingham and bath have caught up so its gonna be a hard one. in terms of the best uni out of those three, bath wins. (it got sunday times university of the year award xD)

    :yep: AAB too!!

    I know the more i hear surrey dosnt sound very nice, guildford is full of conservative old people. definetly not the kind of place i want to spend the next 3/4 years :/
    Yea thats one of the main reasons i chose bath over other places, doing a sociology degree dosnt put you in good sted to get a job from uni and i think the year out will help alot in directing my study in a particular feild of work so i can be more appealing to employers.

    Im 18 going to be 19 when im there. Seeing all my freinds at uni this year has made me so excited for next year!
