    It was OK, I would have thought they would have made more progress in the field in the last 20 odd years.

    Did psychology, liked it at undergrad. The further along in postgrad I get the more I hate it. Want to change fields.
    Hi there, why do you feel you hate it in postgrad as opposed to undergrad? What field are you thinking of going into?

    Ugh, I'm doing History at KCL and I'm thinking of dropping out to reapply for something else for 2016 entry... is it worth it?

    In 2nd year of IBMS Biomedical science, also did a foundation in natural science. Found the foundation completely useless, but oh well. In all honesty I don't enjoy very much of my course. But that's mainly down to me losing all passion for the subject. We have about 36 contact hours a week, and we're expected to do an extra 30 hours at least private study a week. There is quite a lot of lab time involved too, and unfortunately the labs can be very repetitive and boring.
    thats too bad. is there no chance of starting afresh?

    Graduated with a chemistry degree and am now doing a chemistry masters which has been and still is thoroughly enjoyable.
    would you say it was more enjoyable than chemistry at A Level?

    For me personally yes, but then again I've always loved chemistry and knew I'd study it at Uni since primary school. Other people end up hating it even more because it does get a lot harder.

    I'm currently in sixth form, year 12, haven't a clue what to study in uni (taking physics maths chemistry and french now) and I've not found any questions asking what other people studied so i thought id give it a shot

    if you could tell me what you studied, what you enjoyed/didnt enjoy, contact/non contact hours, and any other funky jazz id be really interested to hear

    cheers
    Business Studies with Sociology. Although most of my modules were on marketing, so it was basically a marketing degree and the sociology really helped. I didn't spend any time with advisers or lecturers. Which was fine at the time, but I'd do it all differently now.

    With your subjects though, you'll have far more choice available to you and some really exciting degree courses to pick from.

    Did International Politics and Strategic Studies at Aberystwyth 2003-2006. Chose solely because I saw it on University Challenge and loved the sound of it

    Pros: Amazing course, with world renowned lecturers in the field, lived in a beautiful town on the seafront and (surprisingly) great bars and underground EDM scene
    Cons (or more accurately regrets): i would say this to anyone starting or thinking about uni, join everything and follow through, get into sports, even if you aren't sporty i.e. Ultimate Frisbee or Extreme Ironing. I didn't take this advice and it is my one sole regret.

    Hiya Currently in first year of Uni Studying Natural Sciences at UEA. I have about 18-20 contact hours a week which is quite good, although you get a lot of reading to do in your own time (Biology). I do really enjoy it though there's lots of choice for your modules and you get to mix with people from loads of different faculties instead of just being in one. Hope that's useful
    seems to be a lot of UEA students round here aha
    do what you love, love what what you do eh (;

    Nope already completed 2 years of student finance, started my 3rd year of student finance this year. And I don't really want to start a fresh anyway. Of all the courses this is the one that best fits my interests. I'm just unfortunate unmotivated and not passionate...depression will do that to you haha.
