Opinions on WarwickWatch
Are you from Singapore by any chance? When I did law at KCL there were lots of very bright students from Singapore. They seem to have a stronghold at UCL, KCL, and LSE.
And plus, I don't want to meet all my previous classmates in UCL, KCL and LSE *shudders*....
But they must realise people are waiting for offers and its not fair to keep students waiting for this long. Its not like there isn't any other good universities to choose form.
Brunei - that's next to Malaysia, right? Yes I've heard that education in Singapore can be repressive - Singapore, I recall, is ruled by a dictator, albeit a 'moral' one.
I'm not Bruneian though. Malaysian by nationality, Brunei's a stepping stone, Singapore was my 'life as a rebel nerd' and UK will be.....(yet to be discovered)
One smashing girl from Singapore I met was also a nerd when she was at Singapore (I 'accidentally' found pictures of her at a school in Singapore - talk about geek!). But at university she was 'cooler' than cucumber sandwiches.
Malaysian females tend to be very attract - the oriental eyes plus the tanned skin is irresistible to many males. I'm sure you'll find a worthy gentleman in Durham.
come on peeps what do you think bout the UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK?
just dont know much about coventry...
Well, I've never seen an ugly asian woman, and I doubt that you are one.
As for her school, I have no clue whatsoever - her father was once a minister of the government - perhaps there's a school for children with such fathers?
Well I'm going there next week for a post offer open day, so I'll post my own little review next week after I've been!
Looking forward to that.
Is that a hint of sarcasm
One has to question a university based in coventry that calls itself "the University of Warwick"
No, not at all. I'm hardly ever sarcastic on these forums I'm really interested to know what people think of universities, esp since I haven't been to any UK unis except Cambridge (for only an hour!)..
LOL! OK I tell you how it goes
Anyway, I’ll try and add another side to these views, so I’ll do my best:
Coventry: Not a patch on most other university towns, supposedly fairly faceless and depressing. Furthermore, since Warwick realised they were keeping there students in an artificial oasis, they now mandate living outside the campus from the second year onwards.
The Campus: This is clearly a selling point for many, but if you don’t like campuses Warwick is at the extreme end of the scale. The core architecture stinks of sixties idealism, and similar buildings have been added on top, turning the campus into an approximation of the Epcot centre at Disney World Florida. Half the time I was expecting an omnipresent voice to blurt out “Work is freedom” or a similar empty yet echoing statement. Maybe it didn’t help that I visited on one of the first days of the year, and there were many new students shuffling about looking rather… oppressed.
The Sussex Effect: It seems that universities without the traditional ties are far more subject to plummeting down the league tables, as seen with Sussex. However, this is almost void for Warwick since it is beginning to establish traditional ties.
Gray to Red: Warwick is one of the few new universities that people who limit their choices almost exclusively to ‘red-bricks’ will apply to. As a result you’re probably going to find more of the snobby types so many fear, though Warwick will probably manage to limit it fairly well.
Though Warwick sounds like quite a nice place, I don't think it suits me very well. But thanks xoxo
