    Hi Jack

    My name is Amy and I am a third year student and ambassador for BU.

    Congratulations on the unconditional offer! Was there anything you wanted to know about Bournemouth or the Uni in general that I could help with?

    Hi Amy, thanks i've surprised myself to be honest. What do you think of the teaching standards and the way feedback is given? Obviously just as general thoughts

    Hi Jack

    Sorry to say I am an archaeology student, so I can't really help there. If they are anything like the lecturers on my course, they should be pretty good (although there is always a mixed bag and every lecturer has his or her own style).

    For us the teaching is generally of an excellent standard: our course has a good mix of practical and theoretical stuff, and the lecturers love their units (so if you enjoy the topic you are in for a great semester!)

    I wish I could be more specific but I don't have any friends on your course so I can't even draw from general knowledge oh well, anything about the uni in general?

    Hello.
    Not long until you start uni! Just wondering what a levels/AS have you taken to get onto games programming? I feel like I don't want to take the wrong ones, or don't unis really mind, as long as you've got a positive attitude and strong references with good grades, but in non-relevant a level subjects?

    Many Thanks,
    Nathan.

    Hi Mr M.

    I'm on Game Programming at BU. Generally universities are quite flexible about the subjects you take as long as your grades are good (after all, they're going to spend the next 3 years teaching you the things you need for your degree). They will probably expect Maths and/or a related subject like Computing or Physics. If you're not sure, the course specification on the uni's website will usually give you a breakdown of typical entry requirements. This is the one for Games Programming at BU:

    Do you know which class/group you're in? If so, go to timetable.bournemouth.ac.uk to see your timetable (the first time you sign in, it should ask you for your details, including which group you're in).

    If you don't know which group you're in, you can find out by signing in to myBU and going to the SciTech tab. Feel free to PM me if you're struggling.
