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

    i was just wandering what the main differences there were between catered and self catered accommodation are. All i can find is that the university will put money on your campus card but can you do this anyway even if you are in a self catered area and access the same restaurants and bars?

    I'm not sure what the difference is, you need to check with the university. I would generally go for catered as you transition into first year university life.

    I think the difference is that self catered halls have kitchens.
    Catered do not ( they have a small kitchenette)

    Campus card is the uni's ID / money card and they put on a certain amount per week. The overall cost is better than you doing it. Presumably they can then predict the expected business for the food places
