    I'm pretty pissed off with my ELCS courses as well. I ended up with a course I wanted to do, then another one that is fine (but I'd prefer another one) and then one that I'll hate. To be honest, I'm afraid I won't be allowed to do any outside options in the final year at all - theoretically, we're allowed to, but I have no ****ing idea how these allocations work. UCL has been disappointing me since the day I arrived there.
    Same here. I didn't get any ELCS modules of my choice. Then one of them was cancelled and replaced with another, even worse one. Worst of all we weren't allowed the chance of picking another that possibly still had space. We just had to do it.

    The rules on outside options seemed to change last year. In my first year, it was easy to do, and I did 1.0 CU in SSEES. Then for second year, you had to go get approval.


    (Just realised I never replied. The latter is correct, you won't owe UCL anything)

    Looking forward to graduation now!

    Anyone know where we can find our numerical average, for our final grade, or do we have to work it out ourselves?

    Guys, could you help me please? I need to choose an ELCS module for term 2, something easy and asking for little effort to put in. I'd also appreciate if I agreed with the lecturer on important issues (political correctness is bad, etc.) Here's the list: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/selcs/elcs/elcs-intermediate-1213. Catherine told me to prepare a list of 4-5 choices, but I've only found two that I'd be interested in (ELCS6040 and ELCS6051).

    Due to timetable restrictions, I can't take ELCS6003, ELCS6011, ELCS6028, ELCS6031, ELCS6042, ELCS6046, ELCS6054, ELCS6055, ELCS6058, and ELCS6064.

    PS: Don't go to SELCS. Seriously.

    I'm looking forward to it too now...it HAS been a year in waiting.

    Portico doesn't say, and neither does your transcript...I think I was only told it in an email from my tutor. I guess you're just gonna have to work it out yourself!

    Yes, hmm. I could ask my personal tutor I guess. I had some extenuating circumstances, so my avg may not correspond to what I work out.

    well my instinct would be to take faust, because i'm like totally in love with faust omgomg marry me all the versions lllllove it.

    but surely take the migrant film one because federica teaches it aaaand it's not an exam

    i think i heard someone say the image in european culture is easy but i could be confusing it with something else

    why are you taking one in term 2 only? can it not be term 1? do cryptographs with me! *cool person*

    The problem is that I'm doing two essayish subjects in term 1 and I don't wanna be unnecessarily overloaded with work. Hence Term 2 subjects.

    Well, I actually ended up with the European thought one, hopefully it'll be fine.

    I've read somewhere (probably on TSR) that it is supposed to minimize the connection with binge drinking. Dont get how, though.

    Because welcome meeting sounds like a jolly good get together over a cup of tea? Whatever the reason, it's a seriously lame name.

    Highly likely but whenever I use the the name (writing/speech) I feel as if I was talking about sth extremely embarassing, so much so that it needed another word to cover its real meaning. Odd, but true

    I heard the Fresher's Fair was changed to Welcome Fair to emphasise that it wasn't just aimed at freshers, but everyone. I assume that's to encourage people to sign up for societies there, since I know non-freshers have never had an issue with going to load up of free stuff...
    Ok, this makes a bit more sense, thanks!
