    Have applied to Brunel. I'm at Thames Valley Uni doing an Access Course (yes, it's the worst uni), so i'd like to know if there are a lot of chavs there?, cause the chavs here at thames valley are planning on going brunel.

    Thanks

    nt really- most chvs tend to grow out of their 'chavvy- phase' by the time they hit 18-19!... like anywhere there are a few chavs but in general not that many... tbh there are so many different ppl you wont notic the chavs! lol

    Can i ask what you define as 'chav'?

    Generally chavs wont even think about uni, let alone be there. Unless you define everyone who listens to RnB etc and who wears sports clothing as a 'chav'? :rolleyes:

    You hve a good point!
    Basically the lower English class. You are right, a chav said to me that Uni is a waste of time, which i didnt see the point in arguing with her.

    There are loadsa people from council estates at Thames Valley Uni, which are rude, and can't hold down an intelligent conversation. That's what i mean by (chavs at Uni)!

    I think at the Uni-Stage you wouldn't have stereotypical chavs

    Thats exactly what I find offensive about the term chav. It's used by the pretentious middle-class to describe working-class people and then to segregate them by bringing in policies against them. :p:

    If by chav you mean anti-social freaks then that's fine. But it shouldn't be synonymous for working/lower class!

    well if you're going by the working class person definition as chav, you might want to rethink your decision to go to Uxbridge to study, as it isn't exactly an elite area or anything. Everyone I know is working class. But if you're thinking chav as in Vicky Pollard chav then yes Uxbridge has a fair few but no more than any other town imo.

    I think you should judge a uni by it's reputation for teaching, job prospects and facilities. I would advise against judging the people at uni but realistically we all judge the students to see how good the uni really is.

    I'm not sure about brunel, but I know around the area you're bound to run into chavs, I mean the stereotypical definition of a chav. However there are intelligent and determined students who only want the best. So really just see if the uni is right for you and whether the atmosphere is to your liking. If it is go for it, if not don't bother.
