Hi all, Bath, UK will be the host of one of the IBWSC from 27th July to 4th August this year. Just wondering who here will be going for the conference, it would be so interesting to get to know you in advance, should we meet up sometime during the trip. Looking forward to see all of you there!
Hi everyone! I had a few doubts about choosing my firm and insurance choice for Civil Engineering (BEng) in UCAS and would like your input. I have received offers from UCL, Bath, City, and Brunel. As you can tell, 3 of my schools are in London and the other one is Bath. I am a person that wants to live in London because I enjoy the urban and metropolitan life and the busy life that London has to offer as opposed to a smaller town or city like Bath. I have visited Bath and I have been to London many times (around 10). I have family in London and being close to family is always important for me. My predicted grade was a 41 HLS Math - 5 Physics - 6 Spanish B - 7 SLS Economics - 7 English -6/7 Art - 7 TOK/EE - 2/3 points. Now I know that Bath is better or higher ranked than City for Civil Engineering, but my top choice is UCL at the moment who want a 39 and 19 in HLS. My problem is, that if I fail to get into UCL, then I may have to go with City, which is lower ranked than Bath in reputation but is in London (Being in London is very important for me) but if I go to Bath, I will lose the chance of living in London and maybe visit every weekend, but will attend a university that I think is better than City. I could also pick Brunel but as far as I know they are better in Automotive engineering. How would you guys solve this problem? Which two would you pick? is there any info uve got on Bath or City or Brunel that can help me make a choice? Thanks and good luck with your IBs!
I think I've pretty much narrowed down my choices to exeter and durham or exeter and bath. This is for civil engineering. The main question is between durham and bath, but I can use exeter as an indirect route to help in my decision. I prefer durham to exeter because of the collegiate system. So if I compare Bath and Exeter and I find that I prefer Exeter, then it's simple because my to firm choices will be Exeter and Durham - if i meet the grade for durham, the I'll go for durham; if not, then exeter. Some complication will arise if I prefer Bath (even between these two, I can't decide which one I prefer). In which case, I will have to look at by how much I prefer Bath over Exeter and how much I prefer Durham over Exeter. I can also make a comparison between durham and bath, but as you know, I can't make a decision. ----------------------------------------- Durham pros: collegiate system (my college fits most of my criteria, except that it is more traditional in the sense that we wear gowns for formal events, which I don't really want but it's a minor factor)general engineering (so I can change to mechanical engineering if I decide to then go into product design, although it is unlikely that I can branch out to architecture from mechanical engineering)campus is quite niceDurham cons: condition is high (38, when my predicted is a 33-35)I'll have to share a room for at least one term (as of now, it's a con, but I don't know maybe it can be a pro)Bath pros: good sporting facilities (I think - correct me if I am wrong, or maybe durham has equally good sporting facilities?)I can pick a campus with en-suite rooms (if they are available)campus is quite nice (both campuses are nice, but bath is more modern. I suppose the modern-ness is not that important a factor)ranked quite high for civil engineeringBath cons: I don't know if this is true - UK residents are not in favour of Bath? (to put it bluntly)Durham is more reputable?Exeter pros: campus is quite nice, modern tooconditions are achievable (because of this, exeter will definitely be one of my choices)pretty active in sports tooExeter cons: actually I can't really think of any. Maybe it is less reputable compared to the other two?----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It is unlikely that I will meet both Durham's and Bath's offers, but I am more likely to meet Bath's. One of the things I look for is campus beauty, nice student life (more towards sport rather than music), fully catered (maybe partly too), preferably en suite and basically a great experience. Also, I have been given conditional offers from Glasgow and Edinburgh, so maybe your opinion is that I should reconsider these two? I would like to know your suggestions, input, opinion, and factors I can consider that will help me make a decision.
