Who's Going To Uni?

Recommended Posts

Are you up at Aberdeen or RGU?

Aberdeen. In third year now though so I can just carry on with my own programme, I'd honestly say it's much less hassle than first and second year (studying wise) despite the workload increasing.

What is your degree in?

 

If I see you around campus I'll say hi

Likewise :)

I'm doing Education, so I spend most of my time in the MacRobert building.

How have you found Aberdeen/the uni so far?

Really Enjoyed it, people are nice, got myself a part-time job that's good fun, plus £2 pints of Heineken in The Works @ Hillhead are pretty decent

Good stuff. I was in the halls on campus but the parties at Hillhead were quality.

Hillhead's been dead since October, no decent parties but will probably get better

Aye, you're always going to get the better ones in September when nobody gives a f**k. Been to the old fire station yet? Usually get some decent parties on any given Saturday round there.

That won't matter, United are getting pumped anyway :P

There's normally a good chance of getting your Nat King at the old fire station too.

I'm also a 3rd year at Aberdeen uni and I must say I actually quite liked doing subjects outside my degree. So much so I'm now a joint honours student. I can see how it would be annoying for some though who know 100% what they want to study.

Yeah I can also see how it can open up so many different avenues and career choices for some folk, but as someone who knows exactly what I want to do when I finish uni, it can be a frustrating time.

Correct.

Also correct. I did Criminology as my original degree but got to study modules such as International Law, EU Law and so forth. Now I'm doing an Accelerated LLB.

Yeh I see that piont of view plus, correct me if I'm wrong, you'll do large parts of your honours years on placement? So the option of a joint degree probably won't be as possible.

Are you also Aberdeen Uni? I hear our law department is particularly good. I did a business law course at Edinburgh and it was pretty interesting. I'd have thought it was the kind of course where the quality of the lecturer makes a difference. Ours was very good.

When you graduate don't put BSc, BEng or whatever at the end of emails or letters.

It makes you look like a fanny.

Dreadful advice - it doesn't make you look like a fanny it makes you look intelligent.

The cross-over between "being bright" and "working hard" is probably enough for a 2:1. Different fields will claim that their degree is more 'difficult', but other than having an objectively larger workload I'm unconvinced by that argument.


Having split my joint honours between humanities and science I found that argument fairly persuasive.

Simple question, who's going to uni after the summer, what uni and what are you going to do there?
I'm going to Caledonian to do Social Sciences, which will hopefully lead me onto politics and Spanish, I can't wait to go


I'm no, I work for a living x

Return of an old topic here.

I organised a lab class for my students this week. Almost half of them (42) didn't show up. I got the usual emails ("Sorry I've been ill", "My granny fell ill", "I got confused about what day it was on"). For some reason I am unseasonably mad about this, and am about to send out an email made of fire to these shirkers.
