    I sent off my UCAS application back in November and I'm still waiting, it's my last university I've got to hear from, luckily I've got 3 successful ones out of 4 so just waiting for this one.

    I applied for business and physchology, anybody else waiting in the same boat and worried perhaps?? :woo:

    the earlier you apply, the earlier you hear back. I think it depends on the departments at OB as to when you hear back as well, don't worry! you have a lot of time left yet!

    Ive applied to Anglia Ruskin (offer), UEA (offer), and waiting on Warwick. Hopefully they will give me an offer for Business management/psychology too and will deff take that offer (unless warwick give me an offer, which i kinda think will be unlikely) so its looking like i will be going brookes atm.:woo: :woo: :woo:

    Jus forgot, was at brookes today aving a look round. Seems a pretty cool place to go uni. Av you been there yet then? Where u from, and what you currently studying, A levels?

    Yeh I had a look around before new year, looks like a sweet place. I didn't do A levels since I'm from Ireland,so I did the Leaving Cert instead. Gonna be do some psychology modules in my course actually.

    Kool, kool ... I've applied to Leicester, Keele, Oxford Brookes, Kent and Sheffield ... Keele is probably first choice maybe Oxford Brookes after I've had a look at both unis in March! What's Warwick's grade requirements like? Pretty high right?

    I'm currently on a gap year, I went to Manchester uni last year but I didn't like it too much so I've decided to do the whole of A level maths in under a year and go to a diff uni lol! You?

    Im studying an access course atm. I left school when i was 13 (strange I know) but haved travelled loads, worked abroad, and have experiance working in some business roles, so hoping warwick will take this into account. Think they want something like AAB.

    I looked into leicester as its a good uni and not too far from me, but changed my mind to apply there as the city is prob not what im looking for. Would like to go uni in a city where i can see myself possably staying when finished my degree (and some more travelling).

    Did you go big manchester uni or met? What was it about it that you didnt like? My mate has got an offer at met, which i think she is going to take as she really wants to live in manchester.

    I went to the University of Manchester, the met is just across the road but it's all a 5 minute bus ride from the city centre so it's great for shopping and going out at night! Has she visited before, she should definitely check it out first she might not like the campus as it's based round the main road but if she likes the big cities then ok ... I just didn't have a good start socially as I was put in a random accommodation with all the international students and they were all guys, and it wasn't like a contained flat with only 8 people in, there was 25 people in the hallway with no kitchen/living room to socialise, don't get me wrong the city was great, it ha everything you could ever ask for and more but I felt like I wasn't making the most of it and at the end of the day, I have to live there for 3 years and I wanted to live in Manchester afterwards. The transport is cheap and the city is full of students, apparently it's the busiest bus route in the whole of Europe and the student population is one of the highest, and it's like a mini London!

    Oh really? Where are you from then? I'm from Leicester, it's a nice city, nothing big but it has everything you need but I can't see myself living here after my studies, unfortunately!

    What course are you currently studying? I haven't heard of that before, sounds interesting though, did you work in the EU or further abroad? If you like the big city, Warwick is definitely not for you, it's practically an enclosed village, it's just a campus university and shut off from all the main places and if you want to go shopping for clothes, you have to take a bus or car but at least there's less distractions!

    She hasnt gone to see manchester yet, but will soon.

    I live not too far from Kettering, in a small, and boring, town called Desborough, near Market Harboro. Cant wait to get away from this place and to somewhere that has some life in it! I think Oxford would be perfect for me, with all the history and beauty of the city. My bro lives in Cambridge and loves it there, and i also really like Cambridge, but I new i could get into somewhere a bit better then Anglia Ruskin. Both really nice cities. :rolleyes:

    Are you planning on staying in Oxford when you finish your degree then, or would you go back to manchester?

    Im studying an access course. Its a good course and the main way for mature students to gain entry to uni. I believe that colleges dont really like anyone over 19 re-taking their A levels now and tend to direct them in the direction of the access course. Its got to be good if ive got in with no GCSE's! They teach you the way they would at uni. I think thats why they take us on; they know we can cope.:yep:

    Near Market Harborough? No way, I'm currently attending my Maths lessons there at a college called Brooke House which I think isn't far from you lol?! So do you come into Leicester city centre at all?

    I'm not too sure where I'm going to live afterwards to be honest, I think most likely I'll move abroad to Canada or America! The tax rates here are so high and most of my family are abroad so it'd be better for me plus the weather here always sucks ... One minute it's snowing, next it's boiling hot ... Going to get ill here

    Oh ok, kool, so do you attend lessons or do you learn independently? How does it work?

    I completely understand why you would want to move abroad. I cant stand the weather over here. I spent last summer working in Greece to get away from the UK and wouldnt count out the option of moving abroad in the future. Sounds like you like moving about. Have you travelled much? I get bored of places quickly so am a little worried about staying in one place for the next 3 years.

    Ive only mainly been to Leicester for shopping, but did go out in Leicester once but a few years ago. Dont know the city too well.

    I attend lessons 4 days a week. Its like studying A levels, but more focused on teaching you as if you were at uni, and crammed into 1 year. The first few months they get you upto scratch with your English, Maths, IT....etc (GCSE level) then you pick three subjects and study them at level 3 (A level). The subjects can be limited tho, but they give you other subjects that you can study as a bonus. E.g my main subjects are: Eng lit, Social History and Psychology, but am also learning IT, Politics and ,have done a little bit of, Education at level 3. I believe, from what ive been told, that i should have an advantage over other students when i go to uni; we will see tho.

    Just been rejected form brookes for the business management/psychology course. Pretty gutted as i got accepted to their business management course and have been getting distinctions in most of my psychology work. They didnt even want an interview from me. Maybe i should go UEA.
