Hey! I’m looking at history too. Have you looked at Southampton yet because I plan to look at the open day in October & was wondering what you thought if you’ve seen it?

Hey! I went to a humanities taster day in I think june and the july open day! the lecturers are so good and the course is SO flexible, its basically your choice from day one (apart from a couple compulsory modules). The humanities campus is smaller than the main one and personally I'm not a huge fan of that when I hear other unis investing in new buildings for humanities and the facilities are smaller than the main one but it is more focused so it depends what you think. Its really nice and I'll defo apply.

I hope this was helpful! Btw let me know (if you remember) what you think of it when you go

Hi, my daughter is going into urban 13 in sept and also wants to study paramedic science. Have you been to UWE open day? We missed it because it clashed with Gloucester open day, but it’s one she is interested in applying to alongside Bournemouth, Worcester, Gloucester and possibly Oxford Brooke’s.

She is studying Biology, Chemistry & Spanish.
