    I've only been to the LSE and Birmingham (which doesn't really count as it's only up the road).
    I'm going to go to Manchester and Bristol within the next fortnight. I'm going to the Durham one, which I think is in the next month or so. As for beyond that, to be honest I haven't really looked at the schedules (which reminds me I should look at opendays.com).

    I want to have a look at UCL, Exeter, Nottingham (although I haven't booked) and Cambridge (which I may be going on a school trip to). I applied for a Law summer school at Oxford, but they haven't contacted me - which could be a good thing, as I've begun to have second thoughts about it.
    do you know when the UCL open day is?

    www.opendays.com is pretty useful. Personally thinking of going to Bristol and Birmingham plus I really wanna go to Manchester as thats now my first choice but can't make it Already been to Warwick and it was well nice but still unsure about if it'll get boring after 3 years. Might also go to a London one just to see although I have no intentions of staying.

    Thankyou, history it is then! Are you taking AS-levels? Which subject are you thinking of doing at university?
    Definitely a good call

    I'm actually taking A2s at the moment, and I've accepted an offer from Bristol to do English so keeping my fingers crossed for AAB. I loved it there when I visited - definitely try and go up to an open day if you can. It's got a campus feel along Woodland Road (the arts departments are side by side in these lovely Georgian houses) and yet you can just walk down the hill and be right in the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

    I considered a load of other subjects for uni (namely history, law, politics and philosophy) but English has always been the one subject I never get tired of and actually enjoy being challenged in. I'm so glad I made that decision now, because under the pressure of A2s English is the only subject I've still completely enjoyed, even during revision, and I think that bodes pretty well for 3 years of immersion in it

    Where are you thinking of applying?

    To be honest, because I had been considering Law for ages prior to the last week or so, I haven't had a chance to scour through prospectuses for the specific content of History courses. I really want to do a course which covers 18th century History in Britain and (if possible) France too. In addition, the interaction between the Colonial powers and the American Colonies is something which facinates me, and which I want to know more about, lol. If I could do a course which either offers these topics as modules or alternatively provides a flexible framework which allows me to study them as options - that would be great.

    I am considering Manchester, LSE, UCL, Exeter, Durham, Bristol and Nottingham. Judging purely from the prospectus (on my lap, lol), Oxford appears to have some fantastic Modern History combination courses: Modern History and Politics looks really, really great. St. Andrews is meant to be great for History too and I would love to visit it.

    Shameless uni promotion.....University of Edinburgh Open Day - Friday 18 June 2004
    I can't make it on Friday, d'you reckon they'd let me have a look around another time ?

    Edinburgh is a strong possibility for me; how's the Languages department ?

    Yeah, I've never really considered Scotland, all a bit too far away for me. What's so great about it? Convince me!

    Scandinavian and Russian, as far as I'm concerned. I'd rather go to UEA, if the *******s don't close the language department :mad:

    Yep, I'm going. Apparently they're thinking of closing both the languages and drama departments. Not bothered about the latter, but at the moment, UEA is one of the only places in the country where you can study Scandinavian languages.

    The more I think about how my exams went, the more worried I get!

    Critical Thinking - think I messed but but really don't care
    English - went ok, commentary a bit short. You can never tell with English!
    Psychology - went well although I forgot all the names when I got in there. Hoping for an A
    Geog - seriously messed up physical, human not much better. Looks like I'll be retaking
    Hist - went ok I think. Henry VIII question was really good - the one thing I knew came up! The resit questions were evil, I prob chose the wrong one but there is no way I'm resitting it again!!

    Not enough money. No one wants to study languages these days.
