Wow! Well that worked out well

Any advice for getting in haha!

BTW I take the IB
Mmm, assuming you'vejust finished your first year? Well, make your personal statement three quarters strictly academic, and the last paragraph a bit about yourself and how your extra curricular skills made you want to do that degree, always relate it to the degree. Don't intro it saying "i decided to study etc" because you'll be wasting characters and spaces, go straight into it, show all the work exp you've done and how it has made you understand certain things more. Also, talk about your fav topic. Make it as academic as possible. They're extremely strict on entry so just try to smash your PS! (And do a lot of work exp/ volunteering!)

thanks! I will 😊

I'm kinda stuck between engineering and chemistry. How would you say engineering is? Obviously it is going to be hard but how hard exactly?? Also what are you hoping to specialise in??

Does anyone have any idea about when we enrol online? I've heard we have to get an email telling us to enrol before we do so, but I'm just wondering when that would be? (Info: undergrad - if that makes any kind of difference)

Microwave, toaster, kettle, that's about it! As well as obviously ovens, fridge freezers and stuff. Quantities change depending on how big the kitchen is

This may sound daft but do you get cutlery and stuff?

I bought most of it from Wilko. They're great for uni stuff. Or there's always Tesco - both on the nearby shopping centre at Canon Park

No, I bought my own. I'm pretty sure most accommodations are the same.

No way. Most will be available on loan from the library as and when you need them, second year students will sell them for cheap, the SU run a second-hand book sale in the first couple of weeks of term etc. Check course Facebook pages too for people selling them. Finally, buy them used or so on eBay and amazon.

They're the biggest waste of money at uni if you buy them new and that's if you buy them at all. It'll depend on your course as to how important they are, but I could honestly have not bought a single book for mine and would've been fine.

Awesome, cheers for the advice. I would never have even thought to buy cutlery...

Hey there I got an email last week and it said something about enrolling.

There was a link in the email. I clicked on the enrol part but they already expect you to have an account, which I do not have.

Do you, or anyone else, have Warwick student account?
