    Hi !
    As a french student I am applying through the Ucas ! But I still do not know if I choose a business school or a University... What is the main difference between them ? How many people will be studying the same course than me at the same time ?
    Thank you very much !

    Hi !
    As a french student I am applying through the Ucas ! But I still do not know if I choose a business school or a University... What is the main difference between them ? How many people will be studying the same course than me at the same time ?

    A typical university course will have between 60 and 100 people on your course at any one time and so, uni is typically a VERY social experience and is, in my opinion, AWESOME.
    There's no substitute for university, it has been the most fun experience I've ever had in my life. However, a degree isn't easy and I don't know, when you say you're a French student, I don't know if you're studying French or if you are an international student. =l

    Right now, I have 3 pieces of coursework to do and I am revising for 2 exams in January. (I am a Biomedical Science student)
    I also have 4, 3 hour exams in April/May and the 2 exams I have in Jan are also 3 hours long. So, in total I will be spending 18 hours in an exam hall this year... yay...

    Anyway, I can't tell you what a business school is, however, I would strongly advice a uni experience. Go out, meet new people, socialise etc..
    Just remember to learn to cook before going to uni, first 2 weeks into uni for me, gave myself food poisoning... =P

    I will take this advice in consideration !
    I am an international student as I am France ! How close would you say you are with your teacher ? Excuse me if my question is embarrassing you: Do they follow and help you or are you totally free to do what you want to do ? Do they give you "homeworks" ? I know it is a bit cliché...

    You can actually get to know your lecturers (teachers) very well, last year I got on very well with my Anatomy and Physiology lecturer and he is writing me a reference because I want to become a teacher and so, will be applying to do my PGCE next year. They don't follow you around though and if you need help, you do have to go to them if you don't understand something but from my experience, lecturers tend to be more than happy to help, unless they're busy of course.

    They don't give out homework because that's not really their job, their job is to lecturer and mark coursework, how you do coursework is your business and they don't care if you do well or badly because it doesn't affect them in any way, however, they can advice you on what you did wrong when you get your marks back.
    So, they are more than happy to help, but they will not chase after you if your not doing well.
