    Yep. History as a single subject. I am interested in 20th century french history and tunisian political history since 1950s.
    I'm interested in French history 17th-18th century, modern European and modern German history and some bits of ancient history (but that's more for fun, I hardly learnt anything on that in school and I don't know Greek nor Latin). I'm also interested in military history to a certain extent, but that does not mean that I'm a blood-thirsty militarist or the like! Oh yes, I used to be fascinated by Ancient Egypt (still am in a way) but more with the culture and the mythology than it's actual history.

    Do you speak French btw?

    Well there were over 5 started the course with A levels in 2001 - if you ask for people on any bioscience course they're likely to be in with you for the majority of the time - at least until you start to specialise in 2nd and 3rd yr.

    what i mean is all my corrospondence that i recieved from them was very personalised and friendly unlike places like Imperial etc, which just fire off automatic letters.
    I think if perhapes u went through a ruff patch they would be very supportive.
    Alot of people say how good the atmosphere is there.

    I have to agree - the support I recieved on discovering that I couldn't stand living/studying at RH any longer was superb - had I been at any other uni I would likely have dropped out altogether instead of transfering uni/course like I did.

    The place is very friendly - but it is very small and very isolated and can be a very lonely place at weekends (as a good proportion of first yrs go home at the weekend :confused: ). Most of the social events happen during the week because of this...the union is all but closed/empty on a saturday and sunday night.

    It's a beautiful campus (I was even quite fond of the the lego-land style breezeblock monstrosities that I had to live in (despite the smelly sock smell on the ground floor)), but I was daft and chose a place that I enjoyed as a day trip instead of a place I could live in happily for three years.

    That said I don't regret a single thing
