    I love it, it's got the perfect mix of academia and social stuff. The accomodation is all quite standard tbh. Everyone I've met her has been really nice as well.

    Obviously you do get some rah-y types, but that's expected at any top university.

    The city is also amazing for shopping.

    Sounds a little strange, but all the buildings are really nice too. Check out the Wills Memorial Building (law/earth sciences) and the Victoria Rooms (music).

    What course are you going for?
    German and Spanish, and I've heard the language facilities are amazing Is there lots to do for people who don't drink and/or party very much?

    A lot can change between your position now and filling out your UCAS.
    I went from wanting nothing to do with University, to really really wanting to go.

    Granted, I've got nothing to do with Oxford/Oxbridge but this is my two pence.
    You've probably never been to the university and besides, you might prefer Cambridge! You do know that you can only apply to one right?

    After some digging, I found the original news article. You should read 'em, they'd help:

    Additional Note: http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6056959

    Hope that helps! Basically, do a ton of stuff that's relevant to your subject.

    And it's cool that you're interested in physics. I did it at higher level at the IB and, although challenging, I love it! Going to study it this September.
    Thanks. Physics is amazing.

    I've got loads of friends doing German and loads doing Spanish and they all seem to be loving it! Don't know anyone doing German and Spanish together though.

    I guess there is lots to do for people that don't drink. Bristol is the 8th biggest city in the UK (I think) and the 4th most visited (apparently...) so there's plenty to do for everyone.

    I'm sure you'll find like-minded people that don't like to drink. Bare in mind that you don't have to drink to have a good time in a club.

    I find clubbing at uni is a different experience to that at home. It's much more about who you're with. You can be at the crappest of clubs and still have a great time as all your friends are there, which is why Lizard Lounge is so popular I guess (also the cheap drinks and cheesy music help).

    I wasn't a great club person before uni, but it's something I've definitely become accustomed to since coming to Bristol.

    There are so many societies for you to become part of so I'm sure you'll find something to your liking!

    It's a bit early for this thread, so I'm locking it for now. Come back in six months or so and there'll be more interest and it will be more applicable.

    Not everyone thinking of applying is in Year 12...

    Some of us are in Year 13 (gap year incoming...) and have been searching for courses and universities to apply to for a while now

    The law course looks quite a bit different from others I've seen, can't decide if it's for me though.

    In the same predicament! Also prefer the look of the Cambridge admissions process for Law. Hmmm.

    Your username is really cool.
    It made me look at your sig, which only confirmed my deduction that you are really cool.
