HIYA ALL,

I'm a first year drama at UEA so if anyone has ANY questions about the English and Drama, Drama or Scriptwriting and Performance course or anything about living on campus or in Norwich then let me know!

I'll do my best to help

Soph x
Hi!

I've firmed UEA for Scriptwriting for Performance and I honestly can't wait! What would you say are your favourite and least favourite things about the course? Also, I hear there were only limited places?

Thanks

I'm probably going to be looking at Campus Ensuite, then Village Ensuite. As much as I really like the social aspect of Norfolk and Suffolk, I really don't think I could survive without my own bathroom. Plus, I just generally felt the ensuite rooms were nicer. Oh, and I hear that Norfolk and Suffolk's rooms turn into greenhouses in the Summer because of the wonderful big windows overlooking the broad. Me and heat go together like heat and Magnesium Oxide (lol chemistry joke, so bad).

What about you?

UEA are known to be lenient to those who miss their offer (except in the English department) so you should have a good chance of getting in.
A) that is a massive relief, however I have an offer for culture, lit and politics at ABB and I'm likely to get BBB will they still let me in?

B) Jelly not to sound like a stalker but what do you do or are planning to do at Uni as you seem to pop up in a lot of the threads I read apart from Uea

nooo its fine. Well I don't know about this year but at the Politics department open day last year (2010) we were all told that they had given people places because they liked their personal statement and that they would let you in even if you missed your grades. And they have let people in with BBB in the past. As per my sig, I'm going to study International Relations in september. I'm on my gap year and have way too much time on my hands hence posting a lot on here.

You explode? Is that right? *wonders if she absorbed ANY AS Chem*

For any creative writers, they mention the UEA course and have a few writers and professors talking about whether creative writing can be taught.

I need to be asleep.

Just read the article and comments... what did you think?
I haven't really thought about it, but looking at the article there seems to be many different points of view on the matter of whether CW can be taught.
It also made me question my own writing abilities... I mean, I love writing and have a lot of determination, but do I have the ability, the "spark" I suppose that some people mention great writers have, and some who didn't need to be taught?
Sorry, I think I'm rambling. But its made me think.

Nah you didn't. If I did I got it last year (Feb 2010) and binned it not long after as last time I applied I made Leeds my firm, Birmingham my insurance (missed both offers & retook & reapplied.) I haven't got anything from this year as I didn't bother with the post offer open day as the itinary was exactly the same. Is it online somewhere? Or would you be able to list a few books on here?

Anner funder, stasiland
john ofarrell, things can only get better
TE lawrence, seven pillars of wisdom
Robert Fisk, The great war for civilisation
Edward Said, Orientalism
David Halberstam, the best and the brightest
Joseph Nye, the future of power
Barack Obama, the dreams of my father

Cheers for that. I must admit I haven't heard of any of them apart from the Communist Manifesto. I may attempt to read a book when my summer really gets under way.

UEA seems like the most logical place in regards to accommodation anyway, it's not really possible to miss out considering they aren't first come first served like other places. *cough* Kent *cough*

I REALLY want to apply for accommodation now too! I'm so impatient! First I was like 'There's no point applying early when I don't know if I'll get in' and now I'm just like 'I NEED to apply!'
