I have an Unconditional Offer to study BEng Civil Engineering at JMU. I've applied for Atlantic Point for my accommodation as I've left it so late! Is anybody else here on the same course and accommodation?
BEng Civil Engineering at LJMU is my insurance but I'm already preparing for results day as I'm pretty sure I haven't got the grades for my firm choice. As LJMU wasn't my firm, I cannot apply for accommodation until I know for certain that I will be an LJMU student. I'm looking through the different accommodation choices available and Atlantic Point and Marybone 1 are the only choices that are not fully booked that are recommended for students in the Faculty of Technology and Environment.
Of the 2 choices, Atlantic Point will definitely be my first choice if it's available when I come to results day.
I'm really excited for second year as in the first year it will go over a lot of basic stuff that you learned in A levels of the subject to bring everyone to the same level. You will learn new stuff in first year but please be aware that most courses run this way
Though to add to this out of the stuff in first year 40% of it was new to me so you will learn !
Also remember that for some of you you will be moving out. I'm someone who hardly did anything for myself back at home a year ago. I made my bed did some washing up and mowed the lawn and that was pretty much it. It took me just two weeks to feel comfortable living on my own and these are vital skills that will never go away
Will be living in Victoria Halls next year so if anyone is there or nearby I might see you around

North Western Halls is a gorgeous building, shame that if you pay for cheap accommodation, that's what you get. It serves well though if you're not too fussy, hope you like train noise.
I got one of the city view facing rooms so I hope it shouldn't be too bad. Besides I sleep through anything
