    Nooo, I now officially have one left! Tuesday, got psychology cannot wait to be free of college, fingers crossed for ever, but if not, at least for a couple of months ;]

    In a little bit of a pickle right now really though, because one of my favourite bands (Enter Shikari) is playing in Nottingham late October, and they aren't playing anywhere near where I live currently; closest place is London I think. So I don't know if I should gamble and buy a Nottingham ticket or not... D:

    I'm thinking I might do that haha, but I don't want to buy it and then by buying it somehow jinx my offer into being unsuccessful or whatever :') touch wood I get in, I'm just paranoid anything I do/say might somehow influence whether or not I get a place :') I'm aware of how sad I am!

    Hey guys, hopefully I'll be going to Trent this year to study English at Clifton Campus.
    I already live in Nottingham, so if you've got any questions I'm sure I can help you there (:
    Anyone else doing English?

    I'd go for it (: Enter Shikari will def sell out, so even if you don't end up being able to go (which I'm sure you will) it will be pretty easy to sell the tickets - it always is for Rock City gigs.

    Anyone starting Interior Architecture??

    I'm Steph and I've just finished my 1st year at NTU doing this course and my year have basically decided to set up a society that I'll be president of aimed at helping all you freshers doing this course (and similar ones) cos we know how daunting/confusing it all is and we wished we had students that could've given us some guidance especially in 1st term! we're gunna set up a group on facebook and all that stuff over summer but for now feel free to add me on facebook 'Steph Singer' if you have any questions
    hello I'm studying Interior Architecture at NTU this october I'm so excited. I have about a million questions to ask you but i'll only ask a few at a time so you don't kill yourself.

    Firstly, what kind of equipment is required for studying the course in the first year? I ask this because I am staying in meridian court which is about 2 miles from the Newton and Arkwright buildings and I was wondering if it was possible to fit everything I needed into a backpack so I could cycle instead of getting the bus? I currently use public transport to get to where I study and to be quite honest I'm sick of it haha.

    Secondly, are we using CAD in the first year? If so, do I need to buy a souped up laptop or will I be aright with my current laptop to use the software? Do I een need a laptop inthe first year? (it's a regular Dell laptop, nothing too fancy)

    Thank you for your time and it's so good that you're giving a helping hand to the newbies!

    There are two 'centres' - Victoria and Broadmarsh. About 5 minutes walk apart! Victoria is a LOT bigger and lot better as a whole but BM does have good shops like Pulp, Disney and New look <3 lol.
    There are also numerous high streets full of mostly subways, costas, starbucks, cafe neros and mcdonalds :P but also normal shops lol
    Thanks

    Pulp and Disney are actually in Vic Centre. To be honest, there is pretty much nothing good in Broadmarsh at the moment (there are a few Pound Shops and the smaller Boots, but otherwise it's quite empty), but it is being completely redone into a Westfield shopping centre, and the plans look pretty good.
    But generally the shops in Nottingham at the moment are great, there's loads of variety. (:

    Hey, I'm in the same position as you! I'm a bit worried though, cos I think I'm gonna definitely be going to NTU, but it seems like all the accomodation has been taken :/ and I can't really afford the top notch stuff!

    You can't book accomodation at Trent if its your insurance, so you did the right thing. If you see you got into Trent on results day you need to phone them up and ask them what rooms are spare- they should have a few left over due to people not making the grade. Unfortunatley these are unlikely to be in the most popular halls (cannot remember the names of 2 sorry) as these are usually mostly full of unconditional offer holders.

    Well if you phone up on results day you should still get a place in uni halls, just possibly somewhere like Norton Court rather than Gill Street (one of the halls I couldn't remember the name of it.) So you will still get to meet loads of people and have parties e.c.t

    There will be spaces in almost all halls as some people with conditionals won't make the grades. It is just a case of calling early enough on results day (the phones dont open while 9 though) to get one of the better ones before other insurance people do (or other conditionals who are trying to swop from bad to good ones! :P)
