    Mum- "I don't want you to go to university far away just go to Kings College London!" (I don't even want to go KCL)

    Dad- "I haven't got too much of a problem with you moving away as long as you get high grades at A2 and you might want to consider going abroad for uni because uni here in the UK is a f u c king ripoff. And don't go to Sheffield or Nottingham for university. They're very dodgy places and you'll die. Go for Southampton instead because it's clean!"


    Different opinions but tbh that won't stop me from moving out to Southampton/Nottingham/Sheffield/abroad
    From Sheffield, and I've gotta say that I'm pretty offended by that comment - Sheffield is great, especially the student areas! :rolleyes:

    I'm gonna apply for 2017 entry IA; University of Sheffield is in the top 1% of universities worldwide, been there gazillions of times for extra-curricular stuff, and - contrary to the above belief - is a safe place to live. Oh, and it's in the city centre so is a doddle to get to from pretty much anywhere (bus-wise - you could walk from student and/or more expensive areas of Sheffield).

    About moving away from home, I think it's an Asian thing. But I'm cool with that - saves me LOADS! :cool:

    My parents said no but I did anyway. Would have gone too if circumstances didn't change.

    Haha, I understand We have a 3:1 ratio of trees to people, so a great place if anyone needs a tree to hug (highest in Europe - I know that from the Uni prospectus, btw, I don't look up random statistics just for fun!) We're on seven hills anyways - like Rome - so hiking is part of daily life, haha. I'm joking, it ain't that bad.

    If you did come to Sheffield, what would you study?

    English. *gulps*

    I once attended a mini English lecture (at UoS, obviously) as part of the Dux Award - it was so boring, that a teacher got his phone out to play Temple Run....

    Ooh, I didn't know you could do triple subject degrees at UoS! What are you thinking of - I may be totally wrong, but I'm guessing it includes a language, as most of the dual Honours courses are combined with a language?

    I think the triple honours is mainly arts subjects
