    p.s. the party doesn't stop there - if you're interested in cheap nights out, 241 entry's and guaranteed tickets just add me on facebook and you'll be looked after!

    -- i'm not just a standard promoter for clubs & the best nights out in Leeds, if you want help with anything else like accommodation or shopping in Leeds just ask!

    Hey, guys
    What do you think about Film studies in Scotland? I got an offer from University of Glasgow (Films&Television/French) and I'm waiting for response from St. Andrews.
    Do you consider studies there of the same quality as in England?

    I don't know about the rest of Scotland but St. Andrews is supposed to be good!

    I don't know how the quality would differ nationally but as it is Film Studies I feel the quality depends on the instituion itself.

    I've received offers from University of Glasgow, University of Southampton, and University College London at the moment. Waiting on Warwick, KSL, and St. Andrews. How would you rank them. I'm an international student and still not sure what to make of each uni.

    Thanks, sjwtwin


    I also find this university great, and I already have an offer from it. However, I was also told that Glasgow is a leading university in films in UK , so now I have a headache when in comes to choosing my firm and insurance choices....

    They're all pretty good; I'm not an expert so there is no point in differentiating. They focus on diffrent aspects to study. For a quite a specific field there is many diffrences in how and what is teached at the institutions.

    For me, it would have been Warwick - it;s close to where I live and I've had offers the past couple of years - but as I was one mark off my English garde I have to be practical. I choose UEA instead!

    As an ineternational student you should just look at the courses and see which one's you would get the best out of.

    Go with the one with which you feel most comfortable with. Oh, and which one you feel you'll be able to meet the conditions of. You don't want to miss out!

    I finally heard from Brookes yesterday and I've since heard a fair load that they are pretty much only just sifting through the applications for most courses. But give them a ring, I think I've explained why earlier in this thread. Or a different one. Whatever. But yeah. Good luck!

    I reckon I only got accepted by Brookes because I was the only person to apply for my course!

    Nevermind Fanfane, it happens, but it's all good. I mean get this, I applied to Anglia Ruskin as well thinking if anywhere was going to give me an offer - it'd be them. Because I'd pretty much had everything I needed and I didn't need many points at all! But erm, they said no. They obviously knew I was too good for them! Though that may mean you're too good from Brookes...ah well you get my point haha.

    Best of luck, matey.

    I got unconditionals from all of my choices: Reading, Kent, UWE, Leicester and Sussex. Took a 'gap yah' after being rejected for Medicine, of all things and, after scoring better grades than expected, they all accepted me! I've since taken the offer from Kent, after some debate between there and Reading. Eventually it all came down to 'that feeling'.

    Can't wait to start it September; the campus and Canterbury town are beautiful and the course is spot on: a good mix of analytical/contextual content and creative/practical content!

    Good luck and best wishes to everyone else; '(Film) Freshers 2011/12'!

    Yeah, I think I've grown quite a lot this year. Plus I've always been torn between Arts and Sciences, so it wasn't such a big leap if you look at it that way. All the same; thank you and good luck on your Scottish venture!

    Haha, I think I meant to put 'adventure', but an "undertaking with an uncertain outcome" could be an apt description of University life.
