    Yeah, I'm excited too, my flights just a bit more than an hour though.

    If you fly with Emirates ( I suppose you're flying from Hongkong to the UK, aren't you?), you'll be busy with playing all the oldschool video games they have available on their televisions and you won't recognise how time flies. The stopover in Dubai is as well very interesting, if you never have been there.

    I've already introduced myself, though my course has changed, so yeah. I was going to be doing Zoology, have opted for Philosophy and Film Studies Results went alright.
    Hi there, I just had to reply to you because you the first person I have EVER seen on this forum who does Film Studies in the whole 2 years I've been at the uni. Apparently we are rare. I hope you like it Do you know your modules or tutors yet? A bit of an odd change of course, from Zoology to Philosophy and Film! What made you do that? Sorry, I don't mean to bombard you, but it's nice to come across a fellow film student
