okay, so there are loads of threads for psychology and what not, but i haven't seen people studying any of the biosciences. .. yet.. ;D so it'd be great to meet people studying any of the bioscience subjects before the start of term!

I am doing Med Chem, think it is one of the biosciences, as apparently Chemistry isn't its own thing...
What course are you doing ?

yeah. the med chem students share some labs and lectures with the biochem students. .. :P took a sneak peak at the syllabus and the all the work involved.

:/ i didn't go to the open day/interview. i'm in belgium you see. i was actually wondering about that; if you don't attend it, is that a problem?

and yes! definitely looking forward to it! i haven't been studying for a year and all my friends are at uni; been hearing great stuff about it. so yes.

how about you??

Ooo nice, where did you find the work involved ? i might have a cheeky look through, seeing as i havent touched Chem since last year!

Nahhh, the open day thing is just for yourself really, to take a look around etc...if you already have the offer, then you're all good !

Yeah, i have been to stay a few days with my friends this year from time to time, and absolutely love the uni atmosphere, cannot wait!!! Just to get away from home too, and i am absolutely nowhere near any of my friends, so things should be interesting

you'll have to first set up an IT account, then they'll give you your username and password. and because i'm not at home at the moment, i don't know the link. i'm pretty sure i can find it again, so i'll do that. oh and as for the IT account, i know that if you've got an unconditional offer, you can set it up now. but if you've got a conditional offer, i'm not too sure. but it's still worth a try.

oh good! i was kind of freaking out because apparently they're supposed to send you a confirmation letter. but they didn't. unless the confirmation letter is the accommodation thing.

i know what you mean. ;D it's nothing like high school.

Chemistry is its own department, within the health and medical science faculty. Bioscience is also in this faculty. If you're doing medicinal chemistry you'll be in with the chemists mainly, as you're in our department as you're far more involved in chemistry lectures than biology ones.

Yeah obviously the modules that are the same will overlap, just the main bulk of the lessons will be with Chemistry people.

Agreed. I would have loved to give a preference, but I don't mind so much as long as I get standard or ensuite on campus Where are you hoping for? Mine's all sent... just waiting to hear from them now

Woo Biochem (Not so much the chem )

I'm hoping to get into campus. :/ i don't exactly like the idea of walking all the way to Manor Park. call me lazy. :P but in all seriousness, i just prefer living in campus; it's just for the first year anyway. so it's definitely worth it. Hopefullyyyyy (fingers crossed), i'll get Band D, in campus, probably University Court (i think).
Basically, anywhere near the biosciences department.
Twyford would be a nightmare..

Which did you pick??

Yup.. Chemistry. :/ i haven't touched a chemistry textbook in over 8 months. :P i think i need to hit the books soon.

I picked Band D too, its my first choice Twyford is supposed to be really nice, but i'm lazy too and would love to just wander over to lecture 5 mins after I wake up

Chemistry is hard.. At least it will be fresh in my head though, cos i'm doing it atm... not looking forward to the exams though

I currently live in Twyford and it's far from a nightmare. Less than 5 minutes to lectures and it's the closest accommodation to Tesco
