    Hey, I'm for Churchill too I'm arriving on the 27th September because all the mathmo's (and engineers I think) have a pre-freshers catch up course starting on the 28th. I think if you haven't heard about a course yet then you are supposed to turn up on the 1st October

    What are you studying?

    I'm pretty sure it varies, both by college and subject.

    Nope, I think Churchill is one of the only colleges doing it this year for maths

    Since rooms in Catz don't have insurance, would you say that it's worth getting insurance? It's just that I've kinda ended up buying insurance from Endsleigh before even getting to Cam and I'm wondering if I should cancel it... :blush:
    A lot of students get it. I didn't. It's really up to you. Catz is fairly central so might be useful to have in case your stuff gets nicked. Probably better to have some form of insurance, especially if you are in the centre: stuff does get stolen. I know of at least 3 laptop thefts in Christ's...

    Ah, I reckon that I may keep my insurance then.

    Thanks for the input!

    I'm a bit restless so I'm clawing my own eyes out, all the normal stuff..

    I'm going to New Forest tomorrow till thursday, aside from that plenty of meeting school friends for the last few times and getting to know some people who will be new friends. I have to do some cell biology to catch up to the other medics because I didn't take biology in 6th form, so that takes up some of my time.

    Hmmm...looking at student accounts and wondering if it's worth getting one. I'll have enough money to not need to use my overdraft and the only reason I'll get a student account is for the free railcard...

    You can only get a free railcard now if you're an existing customer of NatWest. If you are then they automatically change your account into a student one anyway (well they did with me).

    Yup, I'm an existing Natwest customer. No, my account hasn't automatically been changed.

    Hmm...I may have to open a savings account that pays interest in addition to a student account. :beard:
