    Hmm I've always wondered about placement years. You have to pay Bath £2.5k for doing what exactly? and you'd probably earn more in your real post-graduate job so D: why do it when you'll be earning less? You can gain experience during summer + holidays, why did you choose this option out of curiosity?



    Sadly not, hence why I said the one I would like to go to heard back form UCL then?
    Bath has amazing contacts and the placement programme is very well established, some companies like HSBC even have dedicated places just for people on this programme, it is about getting a leg up from the university to ensure you get a decent job when you leave. The money you pay them is annoying but most placement years pay really well so it doesn't really matter.

    Still waiting for UCL :|

    Just to say I also got rejected from Warwick. Not really fussed because I wasn't going to go anyway but anyone who hasn't received their rejection tonight still has hope!

    Medicine is skewed because so few places offer it

    Cambridge, Nottingham, Leeds and Sheffield. Cambridge rejected me post-interview and I have an offer from the other 3. Nottingham gave me a nice offer of AABB which kind of voids my offers from Leeds and Sheffield. Really want Warwick but having said that I'm glad I got Nottingham

    You know how soas is part of the university of london like ucl, kings and etc, apparently you can go to specific lectures/classes at the other UOL unis. I heard this at the open day .
