    I'm now going to Aberdeen to do English and Scottish Literature

    Any idea when the year starts and when I'll get some information and that?
    PLUS: When do I let them know that I'm going straight to second year?
    term starts 21st september - presumeably freshers is the week before...
    I got my welcome back on results day, reg codes and stuff.
    I rang up about the point of entry too but I achieved the conditions for level two entry but they sent my letter of acceptance for entry at level one. They said basicly said that you talk to your advisor upon registration and general start of term ****. There are advantages and disadvantages if you choose level two entry but they technicalities are laid out fully when you get there - so you make an informed choice.

    Fresher's week starts on the 20th. Classes don't start until the week after, but during that first week you've got your advisor's appointment.

    As for the person not in the UK who asked about the welcome packs... I don't know if it's still the same, but three years ago we got ours at the airport if we came from abroad. There were uni people there picking us up and handing out the packs.

    Ah right. See you all on the 20th or earlier, then. If I ever apply for accommodation that is.

    foam party on the tuesday oi oi oi :'D

    also as for bands I think CIWWAF is playing at somepoint.

    Aberdeen Uni doesn't have a Union as such so I think it's a little different compared to other unis, most of the events are at the clubs in the town.
