    Oh right ahah - In that case you didn't really miss out on anything
    What did you think of Wolfson house btw? I've heard a mix of comments about it
    It's pretty standard accommodation wise, but the huge benefit is being so close to Guy's campus. I think if you don't mind having a basic room and being on a corridor rather than in 'apartment style' buildings and you would rather be able to roll out of bed and into a lecture, it's the best place for you. Plus, it's one of the cheapest residences.
    Sadly I've had the experience of staying at Wilson House (Imperial residence) and it's not even one of the best halls but it's still so nice (everything is new). Bathrooms are shared between 3 people max.

    Great Dover Street seems like a nicer set-up than Wolfson with the apartments, but again rooms are basic. The best thing about being in an apartment style block is that you actually get to know the people than you're in that apartment with properly. Sometimes with the corridor arrangement people can disappear off and you end up not really getting to know your neighbours as well.

    What's the difference between apartment style and whatever wolfs on is? Thanks - the terms are confusing me slightly.

    Oh also, did anyone get to speak to any kings medics about how they are finding the course in general? I heard the teaching isn't that great? :/

    Apartment style is where you'll have a 'cluster' of rooms sharing one common kitchen/living area type thing, whereas Wolfson House has simply rooms set along a corridor, with a kitchen and bathrooms, but no real communal space.

    Occupational health will sort it out when you get there, or you can get it done by your GP. I've already had mine done, took 7 months plus having antibodies tested.

    So there's no rush to do it before September ?

    There's no rush, as such. Kings won't kick you off the course for not getting a vaccine after you've earned your place, but it would save some time during registration if you sorted it out yourself - after all, it only costs £15 and a 5 min appointment with a nurse.

    On the post offer notes they sent us, didn't they mention something about filling in an occupational health questionnaire, which will be made available via the Portal around May? Maybe that's when we'd have to start thinking about sorting out vaccinations, etc.

    I've heard that it is slightly further than GDS (about 10-15 mins walk to guys campus?)

    But that's step 5 out of 6, with step 1 being enrollment & registration, which can't do until they send us our online details right? And in step 5 it says 'you should already have begun the process of arranging vaccinations'...I would have liked to have thought it would be clearly stated in our offer notes if we had to be arranging vaccinations now? Hope so anyway - I've been trying to put off thinking about vaccinations ahahah
