Could you elaborate a bit more?

- Which unis in total do you have offers for?
- At what grades are these offers?
- Are you trying to choose a firm? Insurance? or both?

Cov isn’t very exciting on its own, but in combination with leamington/Birmingham and the clubs on uni campus I’d say the nightlife isn’t as bad as people make out.

Most of the lecturers are really nice and helpful but not all of the staff are like that.

In which case my advice would be to either:

- Select your firm choice as the one with the widest range of modules within the course. This will give you the greatest flexibility when opting for modules and this is especially useful if you aren't sure what your specialisms are.

- Select Loughborough as your firm choice if you like it this much.

You have doubts about Warwick being fun for three years.. thats fine, it’s your gut telling you it’s not right. Bath is just as prodigious and is much nicer campus but do you want to go there either?

I agree with the person that said firm Loughborough if that’s where you actually want to go though. You’ve more chance getting a first from a Uni you’ve loved being at.

Hi there,

I have been living in Coventry for more than 3 years. I am still enjoying it. Coventry is a student- friendly city, where you can get everything you need in walking- distance if youy are living in city centre. The living expense is afforatcble compare with other cityies in the UK.
Let me know if you have any other questions reagrds life in Coventry.

Best wishes,
Kylie

I can only speak for Warwick and it depends on what you’re looking for. At the moment there are no optional modules for any of the chemistry degrees until year 3 which is disappointing for some. The course is fairly tough. The nightlife might not be for you if you’re a very social person but for most people it’s ok. The accommodation is also quite expensive compared to other uni halls.

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. As a second year Chemistry student at the University of Warwick, I hope to give some insight into the degree and aid your decision in which university you end up firming.

I was never the best at Chemistry throughout sixth-form, so inevitably, I was quite intimidated about being thrown straight into the deep end of university-level Chemistry. However, I have nothing but good things to say about how all the academics and lecturers eased everyone into the course and made us feel comfortable with the structure and content of the degree. The department have so many great initiatives and are constantly working towards promoting equality within the course and within this area of STEM, as well as listening to the student voice and acting on our requests as a cohort. Yes, the course is hard, but realistically, you're going to get that wherever you go. Chemistry is a difficult degree, and one in which needs you to meet many demands and deadlines, but the passion from the lecturers and the key transferrable skills that are taught within this degree at Warwick, are what makes the university so unique and special compared to many others. In terms of the social scene here, I think it is completely subjective and down to who you meet and surround yourself with. There are plenty of social opportunities at Warwick, including societies and campus motives, or you can delve into the nearby towns/cities including clubbing and going out to Leamington, Coventry or Birmingham.

I hope this gives you some clarity into what the degree and life is like at Warwick - wishing you the best of luck with whatever decision you end up making
