    Loved the applicant day yesterday. Shame they didn't show any other accommodation than Lee House. Is anyone thinking about Shaw? The Criminology group seemed really nice as well, don't know if anyone on here went
    Yeah I did I am looking to do Psych & Crim joint honours but because the psych department was a bit of a let down I don't think I'll be choosing Roehampton...

    I went to the offer holder day today and loved it, I'm just a little worried because at 21 I was the oldest person there and the only one who has already finished college and been working. I know I'm not much older but do you think this will make a difference socially?
    Hey Ayee!

    I just saw your post here, I'm TaylaGrace and in my first year at Roehamtpon. You shouldn't worry at all about being 21. On my course there are quite a few people that I know of who are in their first year that are your age and there are even people who are older. It's completely normal As for making a difference socially, it won't make any. Everyone from all years go to the social events, if you think about it the majority of students from second and third year will be 21 or some over anyway... So don't worry at all and I hope I helped put your mind at ease.

    I'm going to the applicant day in April also for Criminology I'd probably put Shaw as my second choice but I know I'm going to put Lee House as my first. I don't know if you've seen on the accommodation page on the website that they've increased the prices for accommodation :confused:

    We had 2 lecturers, the first one spoke about the history of prisons and if they work or not, and the second spoke on transnational crime and graffiti. It was really interesting! Lecture style but with a few questions a group work like a seminar. Lasted for about an hour and a half which sounds like such a long time but it went really quickly! Then we had a talk on social life and then a campus tour and looked at Lee House I hope you enjoy it in April! I met loads of lovely people when I went

    I got a conditional for Education - am so pleased. I have heard great things about the reputation etc. Would be good to see if anyone else is in the same boat? Also, if anyone knows where to find information about how many students they accept per course per year. I prefer smaller groups so will affect my choice in the end.
    Hi, i have applied to the same university but for a similar course just wanted to ask, do u know how long it took for them to reply to your choice?

    Hey Monica!

    I'm studying English Literature with Creative Writing. I love it here, I wouldn't change it for anything. Roehampton is very accommodating and everyone is so friendly and helpful. I think for me, my favorite things about Roehampton have been getting to know loads of like minded people from a diverse range of cultures and backgrounds. Also, aside from being able to study the subject I love, the social life here is great. There are also so many opportunities to get stuck into uni life.

    In regards to my course, I feel very supported in that I can speak to my lecturers about anything. The course content is stimulating and exciting. I have had a lot of freedom to dabble with new ways of writing and literature as well as fully immersing myself in the things I personally prefer. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

    Are people looking at accommodation that's in the same place as most of their lectures?

    Decided I am going to insure Roehampton. Still have some apprehensions about Whitelands but loved Southlands and I like the community feel here. I'm hoping I have made the right choice, but time will tell although fingers crossed I get into my firm xx
