Calling all surrey people! [Dec. 1st, 2006|02:15 am]

I just though I'd let you know about the new Surrey Uni community! 
unis_people 

I know it's a crappy name but that doesn't mean you shouldn't join. Most other uni's have one, why should we be left out? Plus it's a good way to let people know about upcoming events, meet people at the uni or even to sell your old junk textbooks.

Come join us!

p.s If this is against the rules then sorry feel free to delete it.

Hey guys,

I've decided to apply to SOAS (after a lot of back and forth) for Tibetan and Nepali, but I'm also applying to other schools [all for philosophy], and SOAS is very specialized and, well my question is, do you guys think that they'll consider me seriously even if I don't talk about Tibetan and Nepali all the way across my personal statement? I don't think I can afford to with all the schools I'm applying to for philosophy being more "safety-ish" schools.

Advice needed...! [Oct. 12th, 2006|05:09 pm]

Hi all!*waves*
I'm an Italian student and I'm going to graduate in Modern Languages and Culture in March. I'm considering applying for an MA in London (or somewhere near London), I'm not sure of which Universities to choose yet though (I've only decided for King's College and University of Kent at the moment, but I have other options). I've already gathered information and sent some emails, but I'm still feeling a bit lost especially because it's a completely different system compared to my country. I was thinking of going to England and to the Universities I'm interested in...does anyone know if there's usually someone you can talk to or somewhere you can go to have more specific information/advices before applying?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I hope this is allowed.

Just wanted to let any music lovers from the Northwest of the UK, from Blackpool to Betws-y-coed, know that there is a new community for you.

It's called uk_nw_music.

It is open for all kinds of musical discussion, from finding bandmates to talking about new albums to finding your local youth orchestra. So basically anything music-related, whatever the angle.

x-posted lots.

International Student needs info! [Sep. 9th, 2006|02:59 pm]

Hi everyone,

I'm a Canadian student, just starting the third year of my undergraduate arts degree at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. I am seriously considering graduate studies in English literature in the UK (specifically Scotland, if at all possible). However, I have no idea what the reputations of the different universities are for postgraduate English lit, or what kind of marks are expected. I am currently averaging 75% (which I expect will improve somewhat over the next two years, since I no longer have to take science, which I am crap at), but I don't know how this matches up against the UK grading system.

Does anyone have any information on universities I should be considering? I don't even know where to begin to look, and the few websites I have visited have been pretty confusing and haven't offered a lot of usual information (that I could find).

Also, does anyone have any figures concerning the average cost for an international student to study in the UK? I know it'll vary from school to school, but some ballpark figure perhaps...?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry for spamming the community :X Especially now that A-levels are due (?). Hope you guys got the results you were hoping for.

I was wondering what happens if (and yes, this is another stupid question) I enroll in university classes now, when my plan is to apply through UCAS this fall/winter.

Does it make me a non-traditional student?
Do they disregard my IB grades and only look at the uni grades I might get (i.e. give me a conditional offer :S )?
(Does it depend on the subjects I take?)
Does it not matter at all? (I realize that taking classes probably won't give me credit, and I don't want that either.)

Do you guys think the universities have a preference as to whether or not I spend this could-be gap year working or taking classes?

Hi guys, I was a question for you that might be weird to answer. :/ So my apologies in advance.

I was unable to apply through UCAS last year, so this year I'm either enrolling my in local university or taking a gap year to work - it doesn't really matter, or does it? Do you guys think UK unis have a preference about how I spend this year? - either way, I'm applying to UK unis for fall 2007. Since I'm out of school, I have my IB results and will probably be rejected/accepted right away, instead of getting conditional offers (or am I missing something?), which is good.

My question is, umm... a guarantee school. Ok that sounds terrible, but I want to be certain that I at least get in somewhere, because I didn't want to wait a year, and the thought of maybe waiting two years is unacceptable.

So I was wondering if you guys knew of any schools in the London area (doesn't have to be in London, in fact it's good if it's outside... money) that offer Anthropology, philosophy, religious studies, or psychology programmes that aren't super selective?

(My current target school is Goldsmith's for psychology... Do you guys know if it's hard to get in here? They only ask for 30 IB points, so I saw a weak light there.
