Thought it would be a good way to somehow find some collegues of mine.

I'll be a Fresher of International Relations and Political Science studies but I am open to people from all courses as I belive it would be nice to meet someone beforehand rather than starting out the school year as a total outsider all alone and afraid.

Thanks

Hey, I've just confirmed my place at the Uni of Birmingham as a Political Science student! I don't know anybody either. So nervous/excited though! I'm hoping they make it an easy environment to make friends as i literally don't know anybody.

Hey, there.

I'm a soon to be student of Physics, and just as nervous/excited as I'm sure everyone else is.

Hey, there.

I haven't met any Physics freshers yet, online or otherwise.

I haven't heard anything back from accommodation; I'm starting to worry, but the university assures me that it is normal. Still a bit worried, though.

Did you hear about our Maths exam, early on? Ie. in the first week.

hi, I heard the day I got my results (I think that was just luck though) they did say it can take up to 14 days so I wouldn't worry

and yeah I heard about that, kinda sucks having an exam when we start but oh well, I'll probably just look over textbooks to remind myself of anything I've forgotten over the summer

How did you sort out the prepayment stuff? The £500+? I have no idea how to sort it out in the four days, and it's getting worrying.

Studied this in first year (changed to IR with a Year abroad for second year) and it was easy to make friends on the course especially during the seminars. Deffo try to talk to a lot of people during freshers in lectures and seminars because everyone is in the same boat, after that it will be a little harder as groups start to form. You can still make friends during the year with people on your course and through societies though. Its easy to make friends in halls as well with all the events going on

my parents used their credit card (which is saved for things like this), I'm gonna pay them back when student finance comes through

Does anyone know if the pre-payment has been taken off the price or does it get taken off at the end?

Thank you I thought the same thing so that was the reason for posting this thread
BTW you can change courses throughout the study years??? Im in IR with political science with a year abroad but I m not so sure about the year abroad now...would it be possible to change it to IR with political science without it let say after the first or second year???

You have to change by the very beginning of second year.
