    Going to bump this!

    I'm kind of nervous (but excited) about getting to know people, especially as I'm not a partier or clubber, and I don't drink. I've always been quiet and introverted, but hoping it'll be okay. Anyone else in the same boat? I think I'm going to try out a few societies instead. I simultaneously can and can't wait to start, feel a bit like Schrödinger's cat haha.

    Glad I'm not the only one. Movie marathons and TV boxsets are more my thing haha.

    What course is everyone doing? I'm doing biochem and biological chemistry. I actually figured I really like genetics after I applied, but I'll see how it goes. I'm really looking forward to lab sessions .

    God it's such a relief to see this, I just spent the last hour panicking that I was going to spend my freshers' week sitting in my room on my own! I thought maybe I'd be able to handle a few of the parties until I watched about 30 seconds of an advert for one of them haha. I'm doing hispanic studies and history which is basically my dream course

    Ooh, cool! I love history, but I figured it'd be easier to keep it as a hobby, but I'm going to miss it. I really want to look at some of Nottingham's historical sites, like the castle. Probably kinda sad haha.

    Oh no, that's not sad at all! Pretty much everywhere I go I like to have a think about what history's about. I don't think I'm going to miss anything to do with science, sorry to disappoint haha

    Haha no worries, I must admit science baffles me sometimes, but I enjoy it. History's awesome though, I have a life goal of visiting all the National Trust stately homes and castles.

    What societies has everyone got their eye on? What are you looking forward to?

    Also me. I see they've got stuff like bowling and games nights on the events page now and that's definitely more my style. Anybody had a look at societies page to see if anything jumps out at them? I don't think I'll be able to live with myself if I don't at least go and see what Quidditch is all about!

    Out of interest, what is the difference between biochem and biological chemistry? I'm doing computer science, which i imagine won't help with the whole introvert thing lol.

    I'm so glad the events page is being updated! Bowling and games night sounds like so much fun! I definitely want to look at the HP/Quidditch society. I'm planning on buying and reading 'The Cursed Child' to prepare haha.

    From what I know/ have been told biochem and biological chem are either the same or really similar. There are 3/4 biochem courses, and I just looked at what was in the course and picked. Apparently the 1st years for all of them are pretty similar anyway, and there's the possibility of switching between them at the end of this year.

    Computer science looks so cool! Also really hard, but I don't know much about it.

    Hey,
    I haven't actually received a timetable yet, but if you go to this address: https://timetabling.nottingham.ac.uk/ and sign in, you can select the course you're studying and look at the timetable for it.

    The only thing is, not all of the classes will apply to you as you may be separated into groups and have some classes separately. However, chances are that at least a few of the classes will apply to everyone and that can give you an idea of what kind of timetable you'll have.

    Or even if you would need to know what group you're in, you can still figure some things out, e.g. That if you're in class 1 you have a workshop on Tuesday not Wednesday, or if you're in class 2 your workshop is on Wednesday not Tuesday, so you would know that you would definitely have either Wednesday or Tuesday off.
