Yeah , It'll be interesting to meet people you could potentially be studying with for the next 3 years....lets hope they're nice lol....
I'm at Birmingham and it's great! My flatmate does psychology and she likes it a lot so far.
there are loads of excellent societies and the nightlife is brilliant! If you have any questions about psychology here, ask and I will try to find out for you.
OK, my friends also just had an offer from Birmingham for psychology. They've asked her for AAB, and she has to get an A in AVCE Business... Which makes no sense!!
Yeah Leaby, unfortunatly unis only seem to see AVCE's as equivilant to A levels if they're in the subject you want to do at uni. So they're seeing an AVCE in business as worth less than an A level (which is a bit unfair maybe) so thus upping her offer and requestin an A in it.
Birmingham University WAS really nice...!
Problem is, I couldn't really connect to the other people who'd also had offers... I'm hoping that's because they applied mainly for the nightlife...
So it probably won't be my first choice. Hope you like it though, Riz!
Thanks, why didn't you feel you could connect with the others?? Did you think they were generally a certain type of people?? Glad you liked it though....
I had an offer for Brummie (AAB for Law)...I liked the place, good facilities, atmosphere, the redbrick architecture was quite nice...saw some nice totty there as well
I find that us Brummie students mostly manage to strike the right balance between work and play. I only go out to clubs one or two nights a week and the other nights are spent in society meetings (I do St John Ambulance), sometimes we go to the cinema but mostly quiet nights in front of the telly!
The nightlife is great, but I think you will find that most students find that it isn't the 'be all and end all', most tend to realise this after the initial excitement of freshers and the first couple of months!
Well thanks for all your helpful comments, I guess I will find out for myself what I think on wed. Did everyone else seem to be there with their parents cus I won't be??
How are everyones' parents able to get random Wednesdays free for all these open days? My parents both work and they can't really just take days off like that.
yep i went on my own, and amazingly found it all very easy to find!
and now looking bk on those who brought parents i would not!
Birmingham uni is definatly one of the better unis i visited on the open days. When i applied 2 birmingham i didnt get an offer til January. I know they ask for fairly high grades (ABB) but i wouldnt worry to much. They will accept u even if u dont meet their condintional offer. My mate was asked for AAB and they accepted her even though she got BBC. Though i think that it does depend on the course.
(Im in the 2nd year at birmingham if u hadnt realised ^_^)
I would definatly recommend going to birmingham. Im not trying 2 sell it 2 u or anything but it has a great nite as mentioned before. And if ur not into the nite life then it has a huge range of societies. Im a member of the Anime and Manga soc as well as a few others.
Neway going to stop rambling now
(p.s. Just wondering how many ppl here go birmingham uni???)
Just Debs, you and me I think. It seems quite a few have applied though. What course are you doing?
