    OMG :gah:

    I got in to study International Relations this year, chose an optional German module, and will study Japanese through the Languages for All programme! :five:

    Something tells me we will get along if you come to Essex :awesome:

    What languages are you choosing? Do you think Essex will be your firm?

    Ahhh that's so cool!

    We probably will! I'm choosing French and German I think so but I haven't visited yet so I guess it depends on that. If I get an offer I'll go to an applicant day though

    At least that is out of the way now :console:

    Thank you :grin:

    P.S.: I am quite sure that at Essex, you can study all the things you want: International Relations, French/German, and Italian as part of your degree and French/German through the Languages for All programme

    Awesome! Good job :woo:

    Yes, I am pretty sure! :yep: Here it says that French/German and Italian are available as part of the degree and while Languages for All does not offer Italian, it offers French and German You might have to double check just in case, though :yes: Even if you are more advanced in French and German than beginner level, I think you might have optional modules from any department, and I believe that you can choose yet another language as an optional module like I did :grin:

    You are more than welcome, I hope it helps! :cube:

    Well done! :woo: You will definitely get an offer :yep:

    I am actually doing a history module! :yep: Europe 1450-1750 is the module. I know the module about history after 1750 is compulsory for history students, but the one I am doing is similar enough, I guess.

    Best of luck with your application! :hugs:

    Haha thanks! Yeah hopefully

    Ah wow really! I've studied British history from 1600-1702, so I know a tiny bit about that. It looks like a really interesting period though so I am sure you will really enjoy it!!! :banana:

    Ah thanks. And best of luck to you with your course! When are you moving in? :groovy:

    Is it going to be your firm or insurance if you get an offer, if I may ask?

    That is cool! :five: My historical knowledge is mostly from the industrial revolution onwards, but 1450-1750 Europe sounded interesting :dance:

    I bet I will

    Thank you! I am moving in on 4th October.

    Aaah that's so exciting!! :bumps:
    Probably insurance. I really loved Cardiff when I visited it. Just preferred the atmosphere a tiny bit more than Colchester, but I have loads of family in Colchester too so idk! Decisions!!! :lol: -- I'm not sure what happens with the fact that I already have my results though, do i still have to choose a firm and insurance choice? Or do I just pick 1 that I got an offer from aha.
