    I'm waiting to hear back for a clearing place in Human Resource Management. Not too hopeful as I applied straight to the university last week so am assuming all the UCAS clearing applicants will get first priority. Here's hoping tho, been checking my email every five minutes since last Thursday lol.

    I got what I guess is the welcome pack? Basically the booklets 'guide for new students' and the letter confirming my place but nothing related to the specific course

    You get all the relevant information at the meeting you have to attend in freshers week.

    Course specifics:
    Everyone does 6 modules a year (20 credits each to make 120 credits a year)
    For Applied Bioscience and Zoology (and every other biology course) in 1st year, you need to study 2 biology modules (Cells and Molecules + Biodiversity) and a horrible PDP-focused module call Scientific Investigation. The other 3 can be chosen from any other science offered: Chemistry (2 modules), Physics (2 modules), Forensics (1 module), psychology (1 module), Maths (2 modules) and Dealing with Data (maths for those with only Standard Grade). Chemistry is strongly recommended.

    Heres the link to the Programme Specification & Module Descriptors: http://psmd.uws.ac.uk/Default.aspx

    FYI, I did 1st year Physics at UWS last in 2012-2013.

    I have a conditional for the course! Same if I'm honest, but the uni itself makes up for it being Ayr for me. Are you staying in halls?
    I've got an unconditional to the Contemporary Screen Acting course at Ayr this September! Got your Halls yet?

    Starting to get a bit worried. Haven't heard of anyone doing the same course as me at UWS this September. I went to the open day as well and I was the only one there fir my course. Surely there must be other people in it or it would be cancelled, right?
    What course are you doing?

    Yay! I'm about 40 mins away in the car, so it's kinda far but it should be okay if we're only in a few days a week. What about you?

    That's not bad, I'm from Coatbridge and going by train so it takes me anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and ten-ish. I'm really looking forward to it now! Although getting nervous already...
