I'm applying for joint fine art & music at Bath Spa, Chichester, Liverpool John Moores, and Canterbury Christ Church.

So what courses and what universities do you want to go to?

Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

I'm definitely applying to The University of Edinburgh, Dundee and Stirling.

Not sure where else, yet.

Right now I'm at Adirondack Community College in upstate new york. I'm going for Communications and Media Arts. Hopefully after next year I can transfer to Clarkson in even further upstate new york. I'd be going for Graphic Design there.

Oh cool, Bath Spa and Christ Church are on my list too...
First on my list is Winchester though.

Anywhere much good for stuff like advertising/media courses?

I just started year 12, so UCAS isn't bothering me much right now, but I would just like to know.

At the moment I'm set for Actuarial Studies at Queens (Belfast). Still need to write a personal statement etc. and make some more choices.

AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR

Tips for prospective students...

1) Do some volunteer stuff now. Yes now. It is so useful when it comes to your personal statement as it shows that you are not a self centered recluse.

2) Talk to your teachers about how much you are going to work and what you might achieve. In turn they may predict you grades higher then usual. If this doesn't work then bribe them. Obviously if you screw up at the end of the year it won't count for much, but some Universities like KCL will still consider you for a place and could even lower their offer so you get in. The health sciences department this year is full of students who failed to get anywhere near 320 points required for entry.

3) Pick what University you want to go to and figure it out from there. Don't go to any shitty establishment for the sake of getting in. When you get to this stage, age doesn't count for shit, so if you for example wanted to go back and retake to get higher grades or whatever, don't think that you will get left behind.
I am....making progress...

Cambridge, Edinburgh, UCL and Bristol for medicine and then Warwick for my back up choice of Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry. I hope I get some offers, stupid competitive courses.

Er, thanks, dad.
Terms and Conditions apply.

St Andrews and Aberdeen are my top 2 choices, I'm going for Economics and International Relations. I'll probably apply to Edinburgh, Dundee and Stirling too, but I'd need to do some more research.
#15
RGU for Architecture, Dundee for Computer Games Development (or technology, i forget), Strathclyde for Architecture or I might just take a year out and maybe do a college course (Aberdeen College - HNC Computer Games Development). Or get a job *shiver*
#16
Haven't even begun looking. But I don't need to apply till next year.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Doing computer science

Bristol or UWE? Bristol is awesome I would apply for History there if it wasn't so bad...

Ohh, pick up the accent. The Bristol accent is easily the best accent down here in the South West

Ayeee?

I'm probably going to take a gap year as I need some bumming around time but I'm applying for Bristol and Chester and Plymouth for Forensic Science and Biology.

Bristol is my first choice.

Awesome do you like it? I'm not sure if I'll go to that one or just the University of Bristol.

It's really nice, accommodation in Frenchay is fantastic, facilities are great. 2 bars on campus and the building where all the stuff is held is like right next to my flat.

I imagine this is really more to do with the choice of course, but all the module leaders and lecturers I've met have been great, overall it's a fantastic place, if a bit raucous with all so many students in one place.

Hmmm UWE seems to come pretty low in rankings


I didnt even look at rankings, I just looked at the courses.

Yeah I shouldn't really judge it like that. I'll keep looking though, UWE looks like quite a safe bet.

Yeah, it all comes down to the course really. I mean, good game dev courses are hard to find, and it essentially came down to UWE or Swansea.

You're best off looking at the unis that are considered to be good for whatever field youre going for first, then compare each of the courses, modules/how theyre assessed/etc
