    Hi,

    I am going to the University of Surrey (if I get the grades that is!) and basically would like to get to know or talk too anyone else who has is making Surrey their firm choice uni. It might be a long shot but I was kind of hoping to get to know some people BEFORE we actually start. I know I'll make a load of friends the first few weeks but I'd feel better if I knew some people who were actually going.

    To be honest I've had the same friendship group through secondary and college, so this will be the first time I'm 'on my own' so getting to know some people beforehand would be great.

    And I just like talking to people in general. :P

    I'm putting surrey as my firm and I'm going to study criminology. Is the course enjoyable and is it mostly coursework based or exam based. I have another question regarding the accommodation is it worth it to get an en suite room? Thanks.

    Hey Ivzz007,

    Great to hear that you're firming Surrey!

    With regards to the course, I'm afraid I'm not sure what the balance between coursework and exams is. I have a friend who studied Criminology and really enjoyed it, but I suppose every person will enjoy different things so I can't say 'yes it's enjoyable' as everyone has different experiences

    With regards to accommodation, I had an ensuite room in halls when I studied at Surrey (2012-2015). I liked having my own bathroom, but plenty of my friends were in Band C or Band B accommodation where they had to share bathrooms and shower rooms. I was over at their halls many times and I never had to wait to use the bathroom. They said that sharing didn't bother them - as everyone's schedules were different, they didn't end up having to wait for a shower very often.

    I suppose there are pros and cons to each. For example, with an ensuite bathroom are responsible for cleaning it and buying your own loo roll, whereas in the shared bathrooms a cleaner comes in every couple days to clean it and the loo roll is provided. It's up to your own personal preferences really!

    Hope this helps, let me know if you have any further questions

    All the best,
    Ashley
