    Haven't seen a thread like this for people applying to Roehampton this year so I thought I might start one Here's a template you can use (obviously replace my answers with yours LOL) but feel free to talk about whatever!

    Which course(s) have you applied for? Mass Communications

    Have you got an offer? Yup! Conditional however if I firm it'll be unconditional.

    What other unis have you applied to? West London, Kingston, Uni of Arts London and London Met (this was a last minute filler, really wish I chose Goldsmiths instead but oh well!)

    Have you visited the uni yet? What do you think? I haven't visited it yet (I'm planning on going to the Offer Holder Day in February) but I've watched plenty of videos, seen lots of pictures and read lots and lots of things about it. I love how it's an actual campus and so close to central London. My course modules are also really interesting.

    Are you planning to live in halls? If yes, are you thinking about any specific college? Yes- my course is under Southlands College however I like Digby College's accommodation etc more so I think I'll be applying to that. Whitelands College is probably the nicest but I'm too lazy to walk that far

    What are you most looking forward to? Studying the subject I love, meeting new people and being even more independent.

    Which course(s) have you applied for? Business Management

    Have you got an offer? I accepted an unconditional offer soon after I received it!

    What other unis have you applied to? Goldsmiths, Queens, Chichester, Aston

    Have you visited the uni yet? What do you think? I haven't had a chance to visit just yet but I will be attending the offer holder day in February and I'm pretty excited for it!

    Are you planning to live in halls? If yes, are you thinking about any specific college? That's the plan! I will likely stay in Southlands as that's where my course is but it's all dependent of finances

    What are you most looking forward to? There's a hell of a lot but I'd say things of note are meeting new people, the independence of uni life, and being in London!

    If anyone is looking to build some bridges before the year starts I'm always open to chatting with friendly folks! Feel free to send a message my way!

    Don't worry about getting the accommodation where your lectures are. Mine are on Southlands and I got Digby accommodation, I can wake up at 8:45 and be showered and on time to a 9am lecture, literally a minute walk. Only one that is longer is Whitelands, which is a 10/15 minute walk.

    I received a few emails but nothing specifically acknowledging that I have accepted the offer other than what's on UCAS. I don't think there have been any issues because I still get updates from them but I plan to confirm that on the offer holder day. Your best bet would be to either ask at an open day/offer holder day or email them if you're not planning to attend any of those before September.

    Well each of my choices had pros and cons, but Roehampton was in London which was one thing I really wanted, they offered me an unconditional, and they have a study abroad program. All of these factors basically made it my best option out of those I picked, though I wouldn't necessarily say it's the best academically (one of my options was a russell group university)

    Sounds quiet reasonable.And ranking doesn't matter too much as far as i think.The thing which matters is what you wanna get as all of them offers more or less the same.Hope for the best and its really beautiful and leafy campus with allot of classical sceneries.Will enjoy allot.Tc.See u

    Have you got an offer? Yes, I have a conditional offer
    What other unis have you applied to? Southampton Solent University, University of Birmingham, University of Kent, University of Edinburgh
    Have you visited the uni yet? What do you think? I went to an Open Day in November and at first even though I was stunned by how beautiful the campus is and how nice everything is - I just couldn't see myself there. However, after I spoke to a lector about my course I immediately loved it. I love how passionate the professors and students are about the subjects they are teaching/studying. I'm not absolutely sure if I'll choose to go to Roe as I'm a bit sceptical about my chances for employability in the future.
    Are you planning to live in halls? If yes, are you thinking about any specific college? Yes. Maybe Digby College? idk
    What are you most looking forward to? Studying what I'm passionate about in my favourite college, meeting fun new people and just basically uni life :3
