    For those with MMU interviews - did you have to accept the invitation on UCAS first before getting more info on the interview day?

    I have just accepted MMU as my CF on UCAS and now I need to sort out my accommodation,
    I am doing a Primary Education course on the Didsbury Campus but i do not want to stay in the Broomhurst halls, i dont fancy being catered for or sharing bathrooms,
    I have being told that the next closest halls would be in all saints as the bus stops are close and they are regular but i havent seen any of them and i dont know which is the best to go for?
    Is anybody else going to the didsbury campus but not stopping at broomhurst. I am starting to panic now and dont know if i have made a mistake putting MMU as my CF as i dont know if the accommodation is going to be good for me!
    HELP PLEASE!

    Hi, can I just ask how you know that about huddersfield? I've looked on their website but can't see anything. Do they have extra spaces for this year? Do you know their numbers now?

    Hi, sorry for the late reply....
    Yeah I had to order mine off Amazon! Yeah that would be fine I should think, and I think it might be an idea to actually have the translation there with you if that's what you're going to do?
    As long as you can explain what you would do with it and how it would be effective you'll be okay

    I don't have any books in french, however I was already considering bringing in a normal story book, however choosing a fairly basic one and explaining how i could then adapt it to a french lesson? Do you think that would be okay?

    Many Thanks x

    Its really nice, I think it's just right because its not massive and its got a good mix between old and modern. The town itself is really historic and old and aspects of that you can see in the Uni but then parts of the Uni and accomodation are brand new. Worth an application

    Well done on getting your offer!! What is Winchester like? ? xx

    Don't panic just yet - no news is good news!

    Just in case, as someone who has been through Clearing, I would recommend have a think about it all first, and all the options that would be available to you. Talk to your teachers about what to do if you don't get in, definitely. They will be there to support you when your grades come through as well.

    I had offers, but missed out on grades. This is going to sound arrogant and I don't mean it to, but wasn't expecting to not get in! I had no preparation and panicked, so accepted a few places through Clearing. However, you only get so long to firmly accept a Clearing place - depending on the uni it could be as little as 48 hours. So I rushed my decision. Bad idea. I went to a uni through Clearing for a year and didn't like it, so dropped out, had a year out and now I'm at a uni I love :-)

    I will say, though, a lot people go through Clearing and love where they end up, I was just unlucky. Maybe accept some Clearing places if it comes to that, and think before accepting any. You can always turn them down and have a gap year. Just think about what you would like to do - work, travel, go through Clearing - talk to people, be prepared and don't rush any decisions.

    Besides, I'm sure you'll get an offer from MMU or Winchester soon :-) Good luck!
    And I'm sorry for rambling on!
