Hey, I've posted a few questions in different forums but haven't got answers for all yet! Thought if I condensed it into one post that might help ☺
so I was checking the dates for the start of the term and UCAS tells me it starts 1st of Sept, but the website says the 11th for orientation week. Are freshers and orientation week different things? I'm pretty confused about that rn!!
I had a couple of other queries too.
Like do chemistry students have to buy lab coats/other lab stuff? I heard they did but wasn't sure.
Plus (and I know lots of booklists are long and pricey asnd you shouldn't buy all the books) do booklists change a lot year to year?
How much do red gowns cost new and where can I buy them?
Are the contact hours long or is it not as much as people say it is?
Can you actually switch between masters and masters with external placement when you get there or is the switching thing a myth?
Last question, honestly! How do you get "academic parents"? Does it happen in fresher's?
Thank you!! And hope you can help
