I'm starting a Masters in September 2011 doing Conservation Biology with Zoo Studies. I will be living in Wilmslow Park and have requested other postgraduate/mature flat mates as I feel I have 'done' the whole crazy drunk student thing (although that's not to say that I don't plan on going out or drinking sometimes).
Anyone else on a similar course or living at Wilmslow?
Ya I am starting the same Masters too in September but haven't organised any accommodation yet..have to get moving. Where did you find your accommodation? Through the university website or an alternative? Ciara
Ya i'm getting pretty excited about the whole thing. Think I will be living in a house with 2 of my friends so we're looking for something these days. Do you know anything about the field trip abroad?? Like prices or if we need to pay for accommodation when we are there etc?
Ah cool did you do your undergrad in MMU as well?
As far as I know, the Tanzania trip is around £2000 which covers everything apart from alcohol and spending money. Isle of Mull is free I think! I'm quite tempted to do both (1 as an elective)
Im starting at mmu in sept too. doing msc forensic psychology.
I also lived in wilmslow park when i first moved to manchester 2 years ago and to put in a request for a mature postgrad flat is to be dead and cut off from the world. i was in a flat of 4 above the gym with 2 chinese girls who spoke minimal english and 1 other girl who i barely saw. if you want somewhere to just put your head down but easy access to the undergrad parties...of which there are many...id recommend it.. feel free to ask any specific questions about it though xx
yeh thats cool. i've always got on better with people from my course/clubs than people i live with plus i know a load of people in the area so am not too worried about being a bit cut off in my hall. not gona be in much anyway :P
I'd imagine so...there usually is at other unis. I know my course has an induction meeting and weekend away but presume they will have some general postgrad events as well Will hopefully hear next week
