Hi

I just wondered there may have been several of you at Strathclyde's open day today and I just wondered what people think of the university?

I was fairly impressed by it, the stands for individual departments were very imformative and helpful, and it even opened my eyes up to a few career paths you can pursue with subjects that I never thought of.

I went to Maths, and was amazed at the jobs that are available to graduates, and apparently for those doing Computing, this year they are introducing smaller classes where you get more contact with a lecturer to help with any problems between the transition from Higher Comp/AH Comp to Uni.

Anyone else enjoy the day?
Mark

But overall i thot it was quite good n the lecture theatre/rooms were quite nice inside. I liked the idea of the flexibility you got with the modern languages degrees!

Still not any further forward on where i want to go though? unsure.gif

Anyone else at the languages one?? Wot was tht guy like? lol! tongue.gif

Yeah, Strathclyde was ok. Quite organised, which appealed to me. I may be messy, but I like organisation.

I just went for the day out, right enough. It was quite good though. I went to some Chemistry lecture thinger and the woman was going on about forensic chemistry and it sounded really good. But I don't want to do science. I was quite bored when the wee bloke before her was talking, so I just sat and shuffled about instead of listening.

I'm like a three year old sometimes.

I was at Strathclyde and didn't like it much. It was quite kewl but I don't know, it just didn't seem right. I didn't get in to see the talk that I was interested in which made it worse.

I went to the chemistry lecture, the 2 guys were boring dry.gif but the forensic bit seemed kewl. Had to leave before the demo though due to a moany friend.

I liked Glasgow a lot better, it seemed to have a nicer atmosphere somehow! I'll probably do Biology/Psychology/History there.
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.

Our School were moaning about we should only take one day off this week so choose whether its the Starthclyde/ Glasgow and Glasgow Cale Day your going to. I actually went to them all and have decided that Strathclyde it is. Did anyone go to the Business Law/law talk there or the Accounting and Finance talk?

I went to the Accounting talk, if it was the one at 10.30. I didn't think it was that good, told you nothing that wasn't in the prospectus.

I went to Strathclyde and really liked it.

Did anyone else find the student helpers at Glasgow really unhelpful and rude?

I thought strathclyde was much better than Glasgow, the union was great biggrin.gif Although I thought the helpers at Glasgow were very friendly. Couldn't understand some of the guys at Starthclyde, Russians or something huh.gif
