    Hello


    Thought I'll create a thread for 2012 folks applying for university this year.

    After much consideration I'll be applying for science foundation course as it just much easier than having to find the money to do access course and quicker than going through the open university since I already have A levels. I'm 19 now but the curse of having a birthday in September I will be 21 when I start.

    so state:

    What are you studying?
    What universities do you plan to apply for?
    What do you want to do at university?
    What is your favorite snack?

    Hi!

    I'll be applying to university at the end of this year, and am just starting an access course to Health & Social Care at Birmingham Metropolitan College.

    I plan to study Paramedic Science at either Birmingham City University, Stafford or Coventry.

    My favourite snack... hmmm... has to be chilli mature cheddar cheese on crackers. NOM! (The glass of port to wash it down with wouldn't go amiss either!)

    Paramedic Science sounds pretty cool. I would love to own a Stethoscope.

    I love cheese and crackers just had some.

    Hello Sarah
