    I'm not too sure on this because everyone I know made their offer, but I know there are a lot of applications per place, so I would say they wouldn't be too lenient

    It's true that there are a lot of this type of person, but there is also a lot of diversity in the student population. I thought that there would be a lot of typical 'snobs' but I was proved wrong - I haven't met one. (I'm a mixed race working class girl from south London and I get along fine, but I understand your concern.)

    Do you know any physics or chemistry students at Bristol? If so, what's their impression of their courses? :beard:

    Also, what do you study? (You don't have to answer this one if it's too personal.)

    Haha my favourite thing is the nightlife, there's something for everyone. Also, being a city uni means everything is so convenient and the shopping in Cabot Circus is good. It is VERY hill though.

    I know some Chemistry people, they think the course is very good, you get a lot of contact hours and it's pretty challenging. Only complaint was that it's mostly 'wet' Chemistry (ie. liquids).

    And I do Experimental Psychology

    Ah, I see. Thanks.

    How affordable is the accommodation? Is accommodation guaranteed for the entirety of your degree or are students expected to go private at some point? :holmes:

    I applied to Bristol for their new MArts course in Anthropology with Innovation. Have you heard anything about the innovation courses in general, by any chance?

    I'm in catered and that's pretty expensive (£157 per week). Slef catered is better but still more expensive than some other unis. There is a lot of variation between city centre, clifton and stoke bishop residences. You are guaranteed one offer of accommodation for first year, but most second years move out to privately rent. This is cheaper than uni accommodation in most cases

    Is there a certain way in which we get allocated accommodation? For example, is there any way of indicating what kind of person we are/ what kind of people we would rather share a flat with? e.g. lively and sociable or more quieter types?
