    I can't help thinking going to a campus university would be like living in a bubble having been brought up in London.

    Is this true? If it is how can I overcome this feeling - how can I get my excitement. I'll still be only 1hr from London if I do go to a campus unie. And Birmingham is close by.

    Any one been to Warwick unie - what has been your experience please?

    thanks

    Have you actually got a place at Warwick for this year, or are you looking at where you might apply for next year? If it's for this year, why did you apply there, if you are so ambivalent about the setting? Is Warwick the only university which offers the course you wanted to do?

    Why does it matter, its a simple question. Who cares about grades.

    I've heard it does feel like a bubble, but then again I don't live there.

    YES DO HAVE THE PLACE TO GO 2016/17 - THIS SEPTEMBER. . I selected Warwick as my insurance as it was a much lower offer at ABB - versus KCL at AAB and UCL at AAA. At the time I accepted Warwick as an insurance I wasn't as clear on my real criteria. It's become clearer as time has passed.
    I got AAB but I couldn't get a clearing place at KCL as it wasn't my insurance offer and they gave priority to these. UCL wouldn't take me for Biochem but have offered me Pharamcy. So all water under the bridge - it is as it is and now I have to decide what to do. . .

    Hence my questions - any insight to Pharamacy ? Warwick? Pharamcy at UCL?

    I live close by to warwick. Sure there is not much going on in the immediate vicinity but Birmingham is a great place and about 25 minutes away by train.

    Can you compare it London? Probably not but there's really only a few places in the world you could compare to London
