    Hey there, I've confirmed and enrolled for a place on the MPhys physics and astronomy course this year at York and I thought I'd stop by here to say hello. Anybody else doing physics?

    Yup, there's now 4 of us that I've seen here on TSR.

    I applied for standard BSc Physics with the intention to transfer onto MPhys after the first year

    Hey, I'm also in for Physics with Astrophysics, currently on BSc but might switch to MPhys if I can. What college you thinking? I'm thinking James if I can...

    James looks good, I'm into music too so Vanbrugh is an option for me. The easy access to astrocampus is tempting though!

    It's in the FAQs here: http://www.york.ac.uk/physics/undergraduate/faqs/

    scroll down a bit, there are a few books listed. I've only glanced at them, I'll probably have a look at them in the library and buy the ones that I find most useful.

    By the way, is there a Facebook group or something for physics freshers?

    Bonjour!

    I'm going to be doing BSc Theoretical Physics, hopefully transfer to a Masters...

    James is convenient but not really my style (also don't like 35 week lets), going to be applying for Langwith!

    Looks like I'm going to take what I can tomorrow, I can't apply until 1 in the afternoon and I'm supposed to be going to Leeds Fest! Gonna have to delay that to sort accommodation. Hope I don't have to have one of the most expensive ones (

    Man, I feel like I'm really missing out. I wanted to go James, but by the time I got in there was only catered left (and I wanted self-catered). So I've ended up all the way in Goodricke Heslington East


    Any chance anyone else will be joining me though? :P
