Hey, will every international student be guaranteed a place in on-campus halls?
In terms of accommodation, I don't think international students are treated any differently to home students when it comes to first year undergrad. The "guarantee" is not actually a guarantee that you'll get a place on campus, unfortunately, more a policy that absolute top priority for campus accommodation will be given to first year undergrads. This means that, depending on intake, some students might have to either share on campus (usually only for the first few weeks) or live off-campus (and if this is the case, the accommodation will still be university-managed, but you will have to travel in). I wouldn't worry about this too much though, if you apply on time then everyone is treated equally and it normally ends up being those who apply late (or indeed through clearing) as the ones living off-campus.
hey guys...was just discussing the standard "omg exams...nervous..worst case scenario blah blah" conversation with one of my friends and was told that apparently there aren't any resits this year (were both 2nd years)...if you fail in summer, you're out permenantly...is this true? no more september resits/pass degrees?
So there are just no summer resits for second years...so it's a take a year out option. That's almost as bad.
so we def can't resit them in Sept and then just continue with our studies?
"you will not need to be..." but can we be? the language is quite confusing
p.s. does anyone know anyone who does Economics & Social Statistics (EC203) and has notes from term2? ive emailed the course lecturer multiple times (as well as asking him in person) but no reply ...there are no notes online and i only have about half of them...never any in ECon undergrad office either...and friends dont have full set of t2 either :-/
Yes it is a pain. You have to invest a good few hours playing tetris with the cupboard.
On the other hand, there are financial advantages of 30 week lets: AV/JM only costs a few hundred pounds more than Tocil and Rootes yet it's ensuite and run essentially like a hotel and Cryfield is miles cheaper than anywhere else.
