    Birmingham = cheaper and good.

    London = expensive and very good.

    How come the intercalated degree is better?



    Please don't throw that word around like it's nothing. I did not show dislike or prejudice against gay people.





    Yeah, I would be happy at both Imperial/Birmingham but I'm now in the unexpected position of having offers from both.
    Indeed you are damn lucky.. and it's a decision you have to think through.. i get why you are interested in Birmingham.. i don't blame you.. however i am dying to go to imperial so i can't be very objective.. and since i am a girl i don't have your issue :P ahahaha i am lucky in that aspect.. ahahaha.. about the money.. well maybe that's something you should discuss with your parents if they are paying.. indeed it's a hard decision.. but i believe a lot of people would be dying to be in your shoes right now.. anyhow you have time!!

    Youre a Cypriot right
    how are you funding your degree?
    It's like £50000 a year isn't it when you include living costs

    I am eu so it's the same as you guys.. i am not considered international.. that would have been bad.. i mean 35000 per year only to the uni and then on top of it london and its expensive accommodation would have been terrifying.. instead i pay 9000 as you and i can even ask for the loan.. haven't decided yet.. and then it's the accommodation which ok it's expensive but it's the same as for you..so i am not any different.. at least money related..

    Hey! Ooh I don't know just yet... I'm going abroad to visit family this weekend, and when I get back I'll probably see all my friends at uni. I'll carry on working as well, I guess. I'd travel but I have no friends on a gap year, and solo travel doesn't appeal to me so I might just wait til the summer and see what happens!

    How about you?

    So as you guys know I'm an EU applicant :P I have my offer, but I apparently need to send them a completed DBS form and a Statement of Good Conduct. I have no idea what these are. Anyone with any ideas?

    They'll send the pack to you in the post when you firm or insure
    DBS- checks that you don't have a criminal record
    good conduct is like an agreement that you'll stick to rules and stuff when you're there
    they will also want jab records
