Glad to hear you got things sorted. Could you possibly update the other thread about how things worked out as it would help others in similar situations.

A CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) letter is an electronic document issued by the university in support of your application for a student visa

So for people who are not British citizens

Hi!! Could you please tell me if the lecturers are helpful? And how life is like at campus. Thank you!
I really enjoyed my lectures in my course they sometimes ask you questions or do activities during lectures, also my lectures are willing to answer questions during lectures and if you don't understand anything from lectures they will provide you an opportunity to explain it to you simply during seminars.

So for lectures we'll normally have it in the big lecture hall and seminars in small classroom, normally divided to no more than 15. Since the current announcement of providing 80% of the educational experience will be on campus I'm really happy about it since I can't really focus at home and focus better in the library

I really enjoy both of the campuses at UWL and they even provide a uni bus for free (note: it's a single bus not a double decker) from St Mary's to Brentford. In terms of library they provide a library both at Brentford and St Mary's if I had to choose which one is better it's St Mary's they have three floors for the library the first floor is for normal noise and group work, the second floor is the quiet floor where you have to talk quietly and the 3rd floor is the silent floor so no noise at all.

Also, if you want to find books the will be at St Mary's and for each floor they show you books for different courses so if your looking at books for biology you can check the sign on each floor for the correct book

I also love the cafeteria in both St Mary's and Brentford both campuses have the same meal course for each day, they also have a starbucks in the campus and provide other foods as well. In brentford they have co op which is really useful for people living in accommodations and they just need to walk three minutes to the shops, they also have a subway in the brenford campuses which is like a 2 minute walk from the campus.

In St Mary's they have a Gym and a sports centre so if you want to make your own society like the tennis society you can play tennis in the sports centre.

Both campuses would seem confusing at first when you enter but you will get used to it in a couple of weeks. In both Brentford and St Mary's they provide a lift with brenford having four lifts which is a good thing as we have lots of students in Brentford. If you want to have a good workout try taking the stairs at Brentford it's really a workout! I always stop on the 3rd floor because I'm already tired 😅😂.

You will love UWL 😊 it's a great place to be a provide so much support such as the welfare team which can support you with you mental health, financial support team, academic support team and so much more 😁

I'm going into my final year at University of West London to studying Early years education. I'm not gonna lie some of the modules are a bit boring as I've learnt it before but it's really good and I like the placements that I've been able to go on. I didn't just do it at school and they helped me to do various placement. They were helpful when I fell ill and had to take a year out. Not sure what class will be like during the pandemic but I'm looking forward to it.

You can do more than one placement in second year? That will be extremely helpful if I can

It's really up to you. The placement is compulsory but you don't have to stop there. Volunteer at children's charity or wherever you like and develop your skills

Thank you . What I'm planning on doing is that per 2 months I'm going to different placements (so three placements overall as I start my placement in January and finish in June)

Little nervous it will get harder. I didn't do too bad in my first year, got a 2:1. Would like to finish with a first this year but will be realistic and aim for a 2:1.
