    I was invited to UMIST to come to an open day and I just got back from it today. It was great and I really like the accomdation and the department sounds good, and honest.

    Its for computer science - dont say it lol!!

    I just have to decide whether Leeds is any better than it. The accomodation is risky for Leeds, I could end up a fair bit away, but I dont mind cos Leeds is a great city!

    Thanks for your help <IMG alt="image" SRC="smile.gif" border="0">

    Well im from near Liverpool so if you wanna know anything about it or the uni, then just ask away or email me. I feel i wanna get away from Liverpool, but thats only cos its where I've lived all my life.

    Dont be worried about the scouse accent! I dont have that much of one, and some of them can be nice. On the other hand, some of them aren't so nice. The accomodation is in some fairly nice areas but its not really in walking distance.

    If you want any other bits, just ask/email away.

    I've had recent offers from Central Lancs, 4 merits in final year. Not really bothered about that one

    Northumbria Uni, 6 merits in my final year - a stong possibilty

    Plus Salford Uni, 5 merits in my final year - my favourite so far.

    To be honest I never thought I would get any unconditional offer at all. I am from austria and was thinking competition is very high in the Uk.
    I've got 4 unconditional offers so far
    Greenwich-Creative Industries
    Westminster- European Managment
    Thames Valley-Advertising&Languages
    University of East London- can't remember really

    1 conditional offer
    London Institute-Marketing&Advertising.

    My grades aren't that great,so I was just wondering, are all the universities crap or was I accepted because I'm not from the UK?

    Anyone out there able to help!?!?!?!?!?!

    *stillwondering*

    It could be for one of three reasons, or some others which I don't know about;

    (1) They're not highly competitive courses, e.g. medicine or vet science, or law - in whihc virtually everyone has to get super high grades.

    (2) They're not hugely competitive unis, e.g not Oxbridge, Durham, Warwick/redbricks in general

    (3) You are a foreign student, hence will pay more money.

    If you are applying with the grades, i.e. you've already sat the exams, the offers will be unconditional. Just a thought, I don't know if it affects you.
