    Hi there! Can anyone describe what are the people like in Computer Science and Maths departments. Are they more like geeks or more like party animals, maybe somwhere in between? Also are there a lot of international students out there(whats the percentage for these departments)? And whats the average male:female ratio? Hope it's not as bad as Imperials.. I heard that the Department is really friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed.. Is it true?.. Thanks.

    I know what you mean.. Just really curious about the whole thing. Anyway thing could turn out well - "everyone grab their laptop, go to Waterfront, get a pint, sit and work/discuss on some course related stuff" or not so well, - "everyone sit in lecture theatre(atmosphere is tense) and study hard, making lots of notes". just imaging...

    I am doing computer science, and I guess you could say I am a geek. I already know programming languages and stuff.

    However, I do drink and hang out and I do have social skills, so it's not a total loss.

    Actually I was a non-drinker too before I came to UK, but I still don't drink strong stuff.. Anything more that 15% alcohol is not for me..

    I've just finished Physics with Computer Science, and personally I didn't notice very many computer science social events (not as many as physics for example) despite there being a reasonable number of women on the course.

    In any case, it's great to make friends with people on your course... but anything more could get a bit messy. ^_^

    You'll be mixing with everyone doing lots of other subjects at the various freshers events and the watefront and phase every week though, so it really doesn't matter so much about the people on your course.
