Hi :) Do you know anything about neuroscience at UCL? Thank you. P.S. Your artwork is incredible! :) x
Hey there, thank you very much for your lovely message! It means a lot, thanks :)
Unfortunately I don’t really know a lot about the UCL Neuroscience course. I did once meet a 1st year neuroscientist and am now regretting not speaking to her more, haha!
However, I do know that the course has close links with the Wellcome Trust and checking out the Wellcome Trust Museum in the UCL campus could be a good idea. Subsequently I’ve also heard that neuroscience research at UCL is world-leading standard.
hi! I'm looking to maybe study at ucl in 2014 but damn the open day is fully booked now , even though I presume it's so cool so there's no point in going. Anyway, I want to study fine art and was wondering what the facilities were like? Also, do you think it would be bad to apply even if I haven't been to the open day? thank you :-)
I’m afraid I don’t know what the fine art facilities are like - was it the Slade School of Fine Art you were applying for? But the general uni facilities are on the whole very good. The buildings are a lot older than most other uni’s so I wouldn’t expect state-of-the-art shiny new things but everything you need is here really.
I don’t think it’s bad at all if you haven’t been to an Open Day. I didn’t go to a UCL Open Day before I started here, and in fact, I didn’t even visit the campus before I moved into my halls. I do recommend checking out the campus though, to have a look round and see if you like what you see. It may not be an Open Day but the uni is always open to visitors and you can still get a feel of the atmosphere :)
Hey, I applied to UCL as well as to other universities. What's the best thing about studying there? (Apart from living in London xD)
Haha awesome choice ;)
It sounds cheesy but I think the diversity here is one of the best things about UCL. You will meet people from everywhere, every background, from different walks of life - it nearly gave me a culture shock, and I’m from just outside London. Seriously though, I have trip planned to visit my newly made friends here in their home countries. All these cultures come together to provide something unique to the university, whether it be societies, shows, other events, even industry/employment links- they aren’t lying when they say it’s London’s Global University.
Thanks for that(: 'cos i'll be a graduate student I'm a little worried about the act I won't be starting like most undergrads (for one thing, i'll already have a degree!) but it seems like such a big/busy uni that it will all be fine!
Any time! :)
Ah I see. You’re completely right though, the uni is really lively and there’s people from all backgrounds imaginable, EVERYWHERE, so there’s really no worry about not fitting in. There are a couple of grads in my lectures and they’ve settled in fine and found friendship groups to hang with :)
Hey, sorry this is weird but I saw what you were saying about UCL- I've just got an offer for doing a LLM (Master of Laws) there and was wondering what you thought about the uni? Im from Liverpool so London is a big step, even thinking about where i'd live is terrifying!
Hey’up! Not weird at all - I really do wanna help and ease the transition because I remember being terrified myself!
I think the uni is great, personally. My best friend here is studying Law and she’s enjoying herself greatly. Sure, there’s a lot of work and reading and studying but you’ll find there’s still plenty of time to explore, have fun, socialise and do whatever you want. The uni’s great in that it’s in such a fab part of London where everything you could ever want is pretty much on your doorstep - clubs, pubs, activity centres, study spaces, libraries etc etc etc.
Accommodation-wise, all first year halls are within a 5-10 minute walk from the main ‘campus’, and from what I’ve heard, there’s no real complaints from any of the halls, so no need to be scared! Nearly everyone moving here was their first time living in such a city and you talk to like-minded people in your very first few hours of moving in. Some of my friends had some trouble with accommodation but UCL were very helpful in sorting it out quickly and by move-in weekend they were all sorted out on that front.
If you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to ask! Espesh if there’s anything I haven’t covered clearly. Congratulations on getting an offer! I do hope you choose to study here (it IS one of the best uni’s in the world afterall ;)
