    I'm waiting for my official confirmation letter stating fees and everything so I can apply for my visa. I've got the letter from UCAS but I need one from Warwick. Term starts 2nd October but there's orientation, so I'll probably be there from 26 September. Oh and I can't cook either though I maintain that it's because I'm too lazy to. But that'll all change when I'm at Warwick - all halls are self-catered. :eek:
    You don't need any letter from Warwick actually. A confirmation from UCAS that you have been firmly accepted (and the seat is confirmed) by the university is sufficient for the British High Commission to process your Visa application - it is a valid legal document by itself that contains all the essential details.

    when are u guys going over? have u got the confirmation letters?
    I've got my confirmation letter already but will only be going in Sep 2007 (still serving NS until Jan 07) so there's no need for me to do anything now, except wait of course. I won't e going for the pre-departure briefing by the British Council as well since it wouldn't be very relevant for me just yet.

    Also, which uni will you be heading to and to read what course?

    I'm applying for my visa next week too. Nutter I think we do need the confirmation letter from the uni in question...at least that's what the Brit High Comission lady told me.

    School (and thus work) starts next week. Urgh.

    Val you're still teaching in Term 3? Whoa!

    Hmm about the visa, that's not what my College told me (it's also stated on the UCAS letter that the document is sufficient legal proof), but I suppose it'd never hurt to have confirmation from both parties as well. It shouldn't be hard at all to get confirmation from the university anyway.

    LSE gives them out around July I think.

    Anyway I thought loads of schools are looking for relief teachers? Every other teacher I've spoken to has said that they could do with more help. Maybe you aren't being called up because no school near you has a vacancy. Have you registered with MOE?

    You should definitely go to Chomp Chomp @ Serangoon if you haven't been there already.

    And I just tried this yesterday: http://www.aromacookery.com/aromacoo...ang_saraw.html. Highly recommended!

    sangoire, are you planning to practise law in Singapore? I didn't know that the Law & Business degree in Warwick was recognised for admission to the Singapore Bar...
    I haven't exactly set my sights on practising law in Singapore, but I know that it'll at least be another option for me. Actually you do bring up a good point - I know that a Law degree from Warwick is recognised, but I'll have to ask about the Law and Business degree. Thanks for bringing that up.

    Let's put it this way... my work revolves around the internet. Can't get better than that, can it?

    Well seriously, it CAN! :p:

    No problem... I have my sights on practising in London, New York, Dubai or Kuala Lumpur actually. But I made sure that I picked a degree that was recognised for admission to the Singapore Bar just in case...

    Pretty low. I charge a base rate of $50,000/day with an additional charge of $2000 per statement released to the media. And $5000 if the statement involves me lying on your behalf.
