    Is it worth emailing the department to ask for a reading list to get stuck into over the summer- or do they presume when you get there that no-one has read anything anyway? I think I will probably read some stuff anyway- just for interest but will I be expected to remember any of it?

    I really wouldn't bother - its not like you've started there or anything yet! You get your reading list in your first week of lectures, I'd wait til then. Besides, the majority of Freshers have just done their A-Levels and it would be unfair to make them read something over the holidays that they are meant to be enjoying! Just wait until you get there!

    bath have advised me to read 3 thick textbooks before starting psychology in october. i wouldn't mind but i've just bought the first one and it was £25 and is 1000 pages! :eek: i mean i love the subject and anything, but if the other 2 are the same lenght i can say bye-bye to my summer hols!

    you'll find that no one would have done the reading that the uni asked for over the summer (or at least they won't admit it). Enjoy the summer break and mabe skim read bits that you will cover in the first couple of weeks if it'll give you more confidence but there isn't really the need.
