uEA is a fabulous campus location. The swathes of green offset the concrety nature of the buildings themselves.

My kids loved it. I found that the applicants day ( or a later open day as some we visited in sept too "to be sure") we visited / my DS visited using the same method he would have to use to go back and forth. 6 hours on a bus. He opted for Southampton as it was only 2 hours on a train 😉

DD visited Lincoln on Friday with a friend. She seemed to like it (although, surprisingly I think Liverpool is still the favourite with Chester the least favourite). DW will be taking her to Nottingham Trent on Wednesday. And then I think that might be it - unless Iíve missed another or DD suddenly fancies visiting a different uni.

Hello! I've just discovered this thread and would like to join!
My DD is due to start uni in Autumn 2020.
She's currently studying A levels in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computer Science (doesn't get any of this maths/science stuff from me!) and has just got 4 A*s in her end of year 12 mocks.
We have looked at Warwick, Oxford, Cambridge and Southampton so far.
Warwick is first choice and Oxford 2nd. Cambridge was discounted.
In September we will be visiting Bristol and Nottingham and going back to see Warwick.

Exciting times! But nervous too!

Welcome to the thread! What is your DD hoping to study at university?

It is surprising how many people discount Cambridge. My DD is hoping to do vet med and Cambridge is the one uni where the course is not rated and it is said that Cambridge produce vets with not enough hands on experience.

Wow. Congratulations to your DD!

(In hindsight I should've done a Computer Science A-level rather than Chemistry, but I stupidly thought computers wouldn't become as big as they did )

Unfortunately, my DD's got 3 Ds in her mocks. That was a bit upsetting.

She wants to study maths - her passion is number theory. Warwick appeals to her as she can tailor the course to that and also bring in particle physics 😬

DD fell in love with the dreaming spires of Oxford and the course there. She had tasted days at both Oxford and Cambridge and I wandered around Cambridge while she was in lectures. Iíd never been before and fell in love with the city and prefer it above Oxford - but itís not about me!

My friends son is doing veterinary medicine at Cambridge. He's just finished his 2nd year. They insist you do practice in all of the holidays although you have to arrange it yourself. I know he's done dairy, horses, small animals and is literally on a pig farm now! He is also going to an animal sanctuary for the rest of the summer.
The Cambridge course is 6 year not 5 like others Unis as you do a year (in the 3rd year) of another course -he's doing zoology!
All I can say is that for a boy who went to his local comprehensive school, he absolutely loves it and in both his first year and second year exams has got a first.
Remember that going to Oxford or Cambridge will open up doors in the future. My husband did Physics at Hertford College Oxford. He went to our local comp as well -loved it there, has friends for life and in his chosen field of engineering it has definitely helped his career as people respect how hard he worked. Mind you he is pretty bright!

My daughter is studying the same subjects at A level however she has completed her maths this year. She also attended the taster days at Oxford and Cambridge. I felt the same as you about Cambridge on our first visit , however on our second open days we both felt that Oxford was the most likely choice. We also visited Warwick and Durham. My dd put Durham above Warwick. I really loved the campus at Warwick and my daughter liked the course. My dd also wants to study maths. Best of luck to your dd with the exams and university. Itís exciting and daunting at the same time.
