Course: Creative Writing with English Literature
Level: Third Year
Hometown: Kingston Upon Thames
Other information: I came to Kingston after doing A Levels. I am a member of the Kingston University Anime, Gaming and Sci Fi society and am also a Kingston University Student Ambassador.
I chose Kingston because... aside from allowing me to take Creative Writing, it was the university in my hometown - allowing me to stay at home and save money on accommodation. Kingston itself is also a decent place in my opinion, with something for everyone and easy access to London.
I have got to where I am now.... I came to Kingston to do English after spending the latter years at school aiming towards doing a science degree. I did the first year of one up in London, and discovered it really wasn't me after all. So I did some thinking and came back home and took a year out to take English A-Level in order to get onto this degree.
My plans for the future are... to become a writer of some sort! I'm not sure of what kind precisely though - I'd quite like to write for magazines or do professional reviewing, but at the moment I'm still seeing where my degree is taking me.

The past few weeks saw two successful open days here at uni for people still deciding on where to ap...
Drag myself out of bed and walk over to campus for lectures, then usually go into town for coffee afterwards (or before depending on my timetable), or hang about with friends after lectures. I'm not into the club scene so evenings either involve staying in or going down to one of the pubs in town/SU bar, or going over to a friend's place for drinks.
Going to the pub and having not very serious discussions about life and philosophy, or asking odd questions like "Would you rather be a rock or a piece of cheese?"
Meeting new people. The variety of people you find at uni is really great, and generally people tend to be a lot more accepting too.
