I'm applying to do nursing for sep '10, and was reading about what the uni have suggested as accomodation for those doing nursing. However i'm not to keen on them (Abbotsbury House and Corfe House).
I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they are just a recommendation as they are close to hospitals, or would i HAVE to stay in them???
I would much prefer Cranbourne or Purbeck... would it be possible for me to stay in these?
Hi Gerry, I've applied for Nursing starting in Sept too
I had my interview today, and I basically asked them to clear up the situation with accommodation..
The guy that interviewed me said it is entirely up to us, but that he recommends hospital/abbotsbury house simply because it' predominantly nurses and they will be more thoguhtful about noise during the night and early shifts etc. But he did say we could apply for anywhere and liase with them over contracts? I have heard in lots of places though that accommodation is hard to get at BU, and lots of people don't get their choice anyway.
Hope this helps! x x
Hey poppy I've been offered a place also but for child's nursing! I think we do have to live there because our course is longer and it's the only place that is open for all the weeks we are at uni. Have you got your placement locality yet??? Evie x
