So as i am a Pupil in the great and epic year of upper sixth i have all my university choices to do this year and apply and then see if i get any offers and whatnot
I initially found it hard to choose a course because i have no idea what i want to do but i found a course called natural sciences which lets you choose modules from different courses so naturally i found this very appealing and so i went and researched unis and after many hours trawling the interweb i finally got round to looking at some unis and made my choices. I feel a list coming on
- Cambridge – Natural Sciences
- Durham – Natural Sciences
- Durham – Earth Sciences (i like durham)
- Manchester – Materials Science (doesnt offer natural sciences)
- Leeds – Natural Sciences
They were my five choices and so far i have heard from four so shall start another list
Cambridge – Natural SciencesRejected but im not too surprised
- Durham – Natural Sciences ??? Pending
- Durham – Earth Sciences (i like durham) OFFER!!
- Manchester – Materials Science (doesnt offer natural sciences) OFFER!!
- Leeds – Natural Sciences OFFER!!
so at the moment as it stands my first choice would be Durham earth science then Manchester but if i get a Natural sciences offer that will replace the Earth science offer.
I suppose some advice to people who will soon be making uni choices is needed at this point and my advice is go with where you want to go not where anyone tells you to go and not purely by reputation because youre going to be living there for 3 years so you need somewhere you will enjoy being at. Also if unlike me you know exactly what course you want to do make sure you look into each course in great detail as my girlfriend who wants to do a doctorate in psychology with an aim to become a clinical psychologist found that when she was researching courses not all unis offered doctorates and some courses were BA not BSc which greatly affects how useful the degree is in certain fields (In case anyone was wondering she has had 4 offers and an interview from Cambridge and i could not be prouder of her)
I suppose that is all for this post and so i must say adieu to all my readers
