    Hi, thanks. That would mean no background reading before i start though. What are others doing??!!
    The reading lists on my Blackboard say they aren't confirmed so there's no way I'm spending anything until I know for sure. Won't be buying anything new either! There's this group on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/groups/2420...okmark_t=group and Ebay, Amazon etc but I'm sure there must be another way of buying second hand books from Brunel students in the same school, like a noticeboard or something.

    I believe those will be our tutors groups which we will know at Freshers...there's a specific 'Meet the Tutor' event which you must attend if I remember correctly...

    I do have a bit of hope from a couple of guys who said their time tables at other Unis were changed during Freshers. Just remember the lecturers have lives too! haha

    lol, I never knew uni timetables will be so different from a levels lol

    I'm business computing too, so don't worry you're not on your own! Read from left to right. First row is Monday, and the time increases from left to right. So for example on the 23rd of September we are in a lecture centre from 10.00 until 11.00 with Timothy Cribben and then straight afterwards it looks like the same lecture theatre but another speaker?

    That's a shame, but it's not the end of the world. You definitely don't have to live on campus to be included in stuff. I'll make sure you're not left out. Do you live close enough to come to any of the evening things during freshers?

    I live about 20-25 mins by car but sadly, I be getting buses (2 buses) so about 1 hour.

    but on the plus side, I have a twin and he is doing the same course!!

    Wow! That really does suck. I guess at least you have the time on campus, and there are always activities and meals and stuff during the day between lessons. Are you close to your twin? Here's to hoping you get along otherwise that's an awful lot of time to be spending with someone But definitely awesome to be able to start something as big as uni already knowing someone!

    If you go onto Blackboard it should say "My Courses" on the left hand side of the screen - a list of modules showing as links. If you click each one, it breaks down into a menu of options, one of which is "Reading List" you can view it, or do what I did and export as a CSV file and merge into one spreadsheet. I couldn't find a way of exporting the whole lot as one long list. It's not confirmed yet anyway.

    Certainly is. I'm 32 but have been working since I was 18.

    I'd edit out your email if I was you, only because if this forum gets trawled by Google you're going to get spammed for eternity I've copied it.

    I have some experience, it's not all relevant to computing, and academically I'm still probably behind most of you guys. I think being a bit older is good for knowing what you want in life and how to learn from screwing up the first time round

    I definitely don't have anywhere near that amount of lectures buddy :eek:

    I have Monday and Wednesday off but where you are lucky is that you only finish up at 6pm latest. I have to stay till 7pm on two days unless it changes over Freshers haha

    I'm wondering if the Tuesday is actually just lab time, rather than actual guided study? I can't see them not giving a break in that length of time!

    As I say watch out for Freshers week changes to the time table. I agree something seems very off there.
