I'm being somewhat paranoid about the photo ID upload. Does anyone know if it should be passport style i.e. plain background, looking directly at camera, blank expression, or does it not really matter? I can't see any guidelines.

edit: Nevermind I've spotted some..

Ha yh I did that too! I didn't spot the guidelines until after I uploaded the type ID picture. But I corrected it afterwards.

I was thinking about that too. However, we will have our university cards and I think that would help us get student discounts anyway right? Or do we need that specific card to get them?

Yeah! Most of my friends have already got their accommodations confirmed!

I heard that if your course starts on 5th Oct then we can come to Warwick on 3rd Oct. But most other unis allows their students to come at least a week before!

That is kinda annoying!
Yeah same here!
Yeah I've been told to come on the 3rd (surname begging with A-M) which gives me 2 days to get settled in and prepare before the term starts which seems a little daunting to be honest...
I guess its treated differently and in a 'delayed' kind of way partly due to them starting quite late in comparison to other universities. Still daunting though :P

Anybody going to the freshers?

Posted from TSR Mobile
You mean the Freshers Fortnight events or the Freshers welcome party/ball/whatever?
Apart from the fairs, I've only found 4-5 things that I'd like to go to over those two weeks. Not much of a clubbing/rave person to be honest.

No I believe our student ID cards will get us discounts in most of the places we need.

I was just curious about the NUS Extra card because I hear some people have them and I wanted to know if there was an extra benefit. After hearing what other people have said I think its only really worth getting if you do A LOT of online shopping, which I don't so I'm not gonna get it.

How did you hear about coming on the 3rd, did they said you an email?

I called them yesterday asking about accommodation and the lady said they expect people to arrive on 3rd Oct.

To be honest I don't think 2 days will be enough time for me to settle down.

The lady also said that Freshers Week will happen over the first two weeks of our courses which again is kind of weird because I hear other unis do it before course starts!

Yeah makes sense. I don't do much online shopping either.

In the Welcome booklet it advises that half arrive on one day (A-M) and the other half (N-Z) on the other day. However, I hear most people are coming on the 3rd anyway haha, it's much better
Yeah will be hectic! Don't worry, we will all be in the same boat (cliche time) and we will help each other out (I'd be prepared to lend a hand to anyone feeling overwhelmed or stressed anyway)

Really? I wasn't even aware that other freshers weeks are before the course. Wow... I'd much prefer that but we can't change it I guess :P

Welcome booklet? Did you receive through the post? Gosh I'm so disorganised, I need to look for that!

By the way, which course are you doing?

Not worth it. Unless you do tonnes of online shopping which you'll have to do a fair bit to save back the money you spent on the card.

In response to other universities doing it differently, the vast majority have freshers week in the last week of September. We don't get a freshers week before course starts, but to make up for it we get 2 weeks of freshers. If that makes sense?

Yeah! But it's also on the 'Welcome' website too somewhere, I think...
Haha doesn't matter much. If you need as much time as possible then I'd advise to look at the time frame in which you arrive at Warwick (on the 3rd) (booklet) and arrive early on.

No we all are waiting. I think tell us to enrol around 3 weeks before our course's start date so not yet.
As you long as you have submitted your photo already (if not, do it NOW😝) then that's it for now!

Anybody in the Statistics Dept might be able to help me out here, is this the diagnostic test we have to do? http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/st...nt/diagnostic/

Only, the link to get you there is through 'New Student Information 2014' so I'm not sure if it's out of date or not.


Cheers.

Arrive on Saturday if you would prefer - might be nicer to be there early. It's only a very loose guideline

This. You get first dibs on cupboard and fridge space as well. You can choose a shelf in the fridge that won't have stuff from everyone elses shelves dripping down on to.

Ah yh! I defo I wanna come on Sarurday, I just assumed that they may be strict about that kind of thing. I'll just call them up and ask if its okay, shouldn't see why it'll be a big deal.

Are you coming on Saturday?
