    What do you think about Kent actually? because I got conditional there and don't know how good is the uni... Anyone has opinion on that??
    My first choice. Looks really good tbh. Spent a lot of time there coz gf goes there as well for the same course, and loves it. Just heavy workload. And the town is kinda dead.

    The town is awful. be sure to make a proper visit and speak candidly with xurrent students before you decide for it. The nearest clubs are awful and dodgy, and the next decent town is a £20 taxi ride away for a night out.

    The Liberty Quays accommodation has a reputation for daily fire alarms pulled by drunken idiots. The buses are exorbitantly expensive.

    I have heard good things about the uni and their sports injury clinic had helped me immensely. I chose not to apply there, as i have lived here for going on three years and it is just not convenient for anyone who does not drive and who prefers something less suburban.

    My first choice is RGU as it is in Aberdeen which combines city and nature and has excellent, affordable public transport.

    are you hoping on one of these as your firm? I got an offer for architecture and urban planning from Newcastle, that you can transfer from into k100 in stage two, but got an unconditional from Northumbria. I'm definitely more in favour of Northumbrias facilities though and just the course in general thankfully

    Yeah.... I'm kinda boring and i dont go out that much, so the town being dead isnt really a problem for me. I understand it would be for other people.
    And also I plan to rent a studio flat anyway and not living in halls. But I would presume that would be a problem in any uni.
    I have spoken to many students there, don' worry XD

    I do't go out either tbf but that is partly why 😂 not much of a partier but a decent coffe house isn't too much to ask.

    Good you have got that taken care of. Best of luck.

    Hi, I'm kinda new here. Those of you who have already attended the interview for UCL, did you bring originals or scanned and printed reproductions of your works? Cuz I only brought an A4 folder with the latter and I'm not sure if I would be disadvantaged because of that. I had to first fly from Germany to Portugal and then from there to the UK, and it's physically difficult to transport bulky items... Thank you in advance.
