Atm I am deciding where to go to uni. Other than being stressed and slightly confused, I still need to make a decision.
I have a few questions - if anyone can answer them, please let me know!
1st- does the ranking of the uni matter?
2nd- is a geography degree recognised as a 'geography degree' no matter where you go?
3rd- does having a higher percentage of course work compared to exams take pressure off completely?
1st- how is the nighlife?
2nd-best accomidation for a party animal?
3rd- does Keele offer good support in each degree?
4th- how big is the geography degree (student wise)
1st- how is the nightlife?
2nd- does Winchester offer many sports?
3rd- is there a lot of funding for the geography course?
4th- those who go/went to Winchester - did it offer everything that you wanted?
Sorry for all the questions! I just need to know in order to make my decision.
Heyyy!!! im a first year at Winchester Uni, iim doing Accounting and Finance but i can answer some of your questions:
The Student Union partys are a bit of a mix, theres BOP every wednesday which most people go to and its like a year 6 party with booze added to it! its quite fun if youre very drunk
they hold themed events which is fun too, like foam parties, silent discos ect.
the nightife here is quite sh*t, Winchester is a v posh little town and therefore has more cafes and pubs than anything else. There is one nighclub called Vodka, but its quite bad.
The best nights are at Pitcher and Piano which is a pub which has club nights for students on thursdays and Fridays- its free entry and lots of fun to! if not then the next option are nightout in Southampton, which is great for night out and theres a strip of clubs - very fun indeed, the train there is only 10 mins too!
Re, sports they do offer loads of sports that you join in and have many soc's too, you just have to find the one for you. Ive joined the basketball soc and its sooo fun! you go to BOP with your socs and you go as a theme in your soc- so thats always fun too haha
so regarding the course itself, i dont know much about the Geography course but thier staff is amazing- like ive gotten so much help off of them and never had a problem either.
Winch was my insurance and they wanted BBB, i BBC and go into the uni.
i didnt get the room i wanted as my offer was late however I got this really nice appartment i share with one other girl off campus as all the ones on campus where taken. But i do have many friends who live on campus and the accomadation is quite nice!! Its a block of flats where theres about 30 of us here, two per flat- quite cotch
if you need any more help feel free to pm me!!
im telling you know that winchester has lots of hills and theres a lot of walking too!!!!!! no one warned me that winchester was built on something like mt everest! the walk to uni is all up hill! and the inclines are quite high too!!!! dont let that put you off though- ive got super muscley legs now
