    lol i think you r confused. I am awaiting a reply from UCL. That's why i could accept King's offer yet. But, i was thinking of cancelling UCL's pending decision since they r making very late to reply to me. What do u think? Should i cancel UCL and accept King's offer?

    Depends mate, did you see both KCL and UCL, I'm guessing you went to UCL on the interview? If you did compare the two.

    I also applied to UCL but got rejected. Probably would have chose Kings over UCL anyway because I liked the atmosphere better plus I wanted to do it with management. Oh well, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

    It's cool. I'm looking forward to uni. (:
    Yeah, defo. Sounds like a good course too. Is your offer conditional or unconditional?

    EDIT: That Question can also apply to those also applied and got an offer for Comp. Sci with Management

    When you accept an offer for certain programs you have to pay a certain amount.Mine was 590 pounds.I guess it's for those programs that have limited places so they wanna make sure you actually show up.

    As I've said a million times - UCL is merely an institution, KCL is a family (well..maybe less of a family when it comes to partying if you know what I mean :o: )!

    I'm really worried about the accommodation process. I'm going to be out of the country from 15th-28th August. I've heard there are strict deadlines to when you must send out your deposit and sign the agreement. I plan on checking my emails twice each day (afternoon and evening) and making sure my neighbour watches all my post at home. There isn't much more I can really do is there?

    HAHA!! not going to lie, looking around UCL it felt so ... sterile? is that an accurate description? and at the interview everyone was just SO focused on their course and not about the whole social side of things and partying like a student (whoooo!) which I think is also rather important

    way prefer the 'strand poly' !!!

    what course are you on?

    I chose King's over UCL.It just seems like the course (MA) was more hands-on, which is exactly what you need right now.More links and connections, not just books

    True, I have the same opinion. UCL felt I dunno, everyone felt so driven and focused to doing that particular subject in the degree. That's a good thing, but I want to enjoy the experience at uni as well as getting a degree.

    Hope I really get into Kings now (or UCL would say "Strand Poly")

    Course: Physics (BSc),

    Current location: I'm Finnish, lived abroad (Brussels) for most of my life, but came back for uni (Helsinki University of Technology) last fall. Figured out that I didn't really belong there and decided to re-apply to the UK (I only applied to Scotland last round, didn't even consider London 'cause of it being so expensive). I doubt I'm going to get teased about being older than most (turning 20 in September), I'll just win back that respect with my awesome drinking skills (I am Finnish after all) :rolleyes:

    Expectations and worries: I'm excited and nervous about getting started, making friends etc. even though I've already gone through it once, it doesn't get that much easier :p: Most of my closest friends already study in London (I'm the only one representing KCL, they're from UCL, ICL, LCoFA...), so at least I have some friendly faces. But if they've managed to find their own groups of friends at Imperial, I don't think KCL -with its friendly reputation- is going to be a problem for me

    I know the course is going to be demanding, but I'm confident that I'll manage if I work hard enough. I've already gone through one year of a really difficult course (Engineering Mathematics and Physics, basicly a double degree during the first years in terms of the work load), so I kinda know what to expect. Now I just need to get back in to the habit of studying, since I kinda stopped alltogether, when I got my KCL offer

    I've already checked out the list of societies and sports clubs, and there seems to be quite a good selection. I'll definitely be joining the KCl Boxing Club, the prices are ridiculously cheap. I'll be doing other sports outside uni circles. Otherwise I'll try to cram in my schedule as many as I can and my budget will allow. And I'll maybe try to find a part-time job after I adjust to the new schedule.

    Accommodation: I'm quite selective about my eating, so all of my top choices were self-catered. Hampstead is definitely my top choice, 'cause the location is nice (I don't mind paying for a year-long travel card, my ipod shall be my constant companion on the bus/tube), the rooms aren't too tiny, and the lower rent mean that I'll actually have money to buy good quality food and party etc. Ranked after that were Wolfson and Brian Creamer. After that most of the choices get expensive enough to cut into the other areas of my budget... so I'm praying for Hampstead.

    So I'm expecting to have a really great time, what with studying in one of the top unis of the world, meeting people from all walks of life and taking advantage of living in one of the most awesome cities of the world, while hoping that money worries won't restrict my life too much.

    How many of you are planning on taking a language module? I'm torn between first year modules: medical physics or a language (or cosmology). I'm planning on specialising in medical physics anyways later on, so it would be good to start early.... but on the other hand I'd really like to work on my French or take up a completely new language like German or Chinese. I think I'll end up just studying languages in my own time (learning Japanese this summer :cool:), and taking standardised tests to proof my skills (like the IELTS).
    I'm so used to the Finnish system, where you have the required courses for each degree, but other than that you can study what ever you want. You can enroll in to class or earn the credits by just showing up at the final exam. Some of the extra courses might be accepted as part of your degree, others are just extra credentials in a way. Academic freedom ftw .

    Whoops, sorry for the insanely long post. But now at least Physics is represented on this thread...

    I'm Maths too I fiished my A-levels in Maths, Further Maths, Physics, French, AS-English combined and Ab Initio Spanish and then went on a gap year so I'm looking forward to studying again! I'm not too nervous about Uni atm but probably will when it comes to moving in to halls. I've visited Kings twice now and I really love the atmosphere. I'm from Cornwall so London is a pretty big change, but I've been there lots and I just love it! Are you Bsc or Msc? I'm Bsc, 3 years of fun woooo xx
