Has the OP made up his/her mind yet or are they still deciding?
All bar one of the History of Art people I have met have been 'rahs' (I'm at UCL too, by the way), but other courses seem to be quite different. Is this your first year? Have you been to any societies? Try broadening your social horizons a bit. In the first term of my first year I had a bit of difficulty making friends, but things changed. I dare say they will for you too. Relationships change, social circles expand and break up, especially when people are still getting to know each other.
Good luck with making your decision.
well, the first year is over and, dare i say it, nothing has changed. infact, i probably hate uni more than before! ive only made a few friends, and have found noone to move in with next year, so ive buried myself in a practically full time job which has killed my non existant social life and probably not helped with my studies! i spend all my nights at home or at my boyfriends because its closer to my job and easier to drive to, even though im still paying a ridiculous amount for halls. everythings a disaster!
a few nights ago i had a really vivid dream that i was trying to transfer to leeds, but it was too late, so i was running around trying to contact someone that would help me transfer but to no avail.. i havnt been able to stop thinking about it since. ive researched the course at Leeds and it seems much wider and with more personal choices than UCL.. the only thing that is still holding me back is my boyfriend, we've been together for 2 and a half years now and i definitely cant see myself without him, and i cant ask him to come up to leeds with me because he's finally found a stable job here in london. aaaaagh!! maybe i should quit uni and get ft job and be done with it!?!
