Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    If I choose accommodation provided by the university (most likely catered), should I apply now to secure the best locations/rooms at the cheapest prices? Has the process of application already started?

    From my understanding the prices are standard so i don't think they will become cheaper or dearer over time. The uni will offer you one place based on your preferences so your first choice is taken into consideration but not necessarily guaranteed. So to answer your question, i don't think it matters when you apply as long as its before the deadline (which i think is in may) and i don't know when they start the process but unconditionals will get their offers around june time.
