    Just wondering, are pharmacy students able to take other modules outside their course in 2nd year or not? I saw that some people on here have done that with other courses, but I didn't know if it was possible for pharmacy students.

    Looking at the course profile it looks unlikely as your core modules equal 120 credits.

    If you were able to it'd say (or at least it does for ENV)
    'Free Choice Study (20 credits)
    Students can select modules worth 20 credits from the course catalogue with the approval of their School. '

    Even though I had the choice to choose a free module from any other school, in reality because our timetables are evil I couldn't as everything clashed with my env modules

    That's what I was thinking. Oh well. Pharmacy, why are you so demanding? Still, that's what the OU is for after I graduate.

    would bringing a car be practical?
    No, not at all! There is nowhere to park one except a pay and display carpark. The bus service from the uni to the city centre is more than adequate.

    If your using it a lot and buying daily tickets then it is fairly expensive- £4 return. However you can get a bus pass for £210 for the year or there is a 9 month one for £195. What I meant more by adequate is that they are very frequent- every 5 minutes at most.

    Oh that's fine then and I doubt I'd be using them daily anyway so it's all good. Thanks for your help

    Was it ensuite standard or premium? Premium is on campus, standard is the village. It will have specified between the two.
    Ensuite standard. Is that accommodation in demand?

    All accommodation types are in demand. What I can say, is that about 75% of people get their first choice, 90% get somewhere within their top 3

    The village is awesome. I lived there and had a great time, and had lovely, outgoing and friendly flatmates.

    I have just secured a place at UEA through clearing and I was unable to attend the Open days on the 17th and 18th because I have only finished with the application process today. I really need to attend one. Are there any more Open days coming up? Is there an alternative way of me visiting and enquiring about the Uni, it's accommodation and the course?

    I secured a place through clearing as well, although I have already been to an open day, I think they told me there would be another open day soon (can't remember dates though - I realise this isn't exactly helpful :/ ). You could try ringing Admissions?

    Heya. I'm also doing Politics, though now sadly going into the third year. I was asking that very same question for most of Freshers' Week - there isn't a long list of books as such that you absolutely must go out and buy. If the structure is still the same, then Global Politics (or A Globalising World, as it was back in the day) has an eponymous book they recommend purchasing, and Introduction to Contemporary Politics also has a book by that name which is a collection of chapters from lots of other books. They recommended that we bought our own copies of those two - both are available from the campus Waterstones and are also out there online for much cheaper prices. Can't speak for all the other modules, but many will provide you with digital copies of texts if they are required reading for a particular week or course section, and of course, the Library has pretty much all the books you'll ever need if they can't copy certain texts (though this be more apparent as you go into the second year). If any particular text is important and requires purchasing, they'll let you know when you start or at least in advance of when it is required.

    Hope that clears things up, and welcome to UEA!

    It's possible they have put on another one due to demand, but there is no mention on the website. However if not then they offer guided campus tours on Friday afternoons and if not then your always welcome to print off the self guided tour map on the website and have a look around yourself.

    Just a quick question about water, is your house unmetered and if so how much are you paying and how is your bill organised? Got a bill from Anglian for £370 for August-March and I'm not sure if thats right? Would I need to then pay again from March-June? Obviously I'll phone them but can't til Monday.

    Sorry, my water's included in my rent, so I have no idea!

    Does seem a bit steep though! Do your housemates seem to use excessive amounts of water? Hopefully ringing them should clear it up!
