    If there is good public transport, no.
    If the public transport is poor/you have to go on placements, yes.

    I didn't answer because it bears no relevance. Don't cry because your argument fell flat on it's face due to your own poor grammar.

    Of course I've been to hull, I wouldn't comment otherwise.
    I wasn't the one who brought up a slang word as 'proof' that someone goes to Hull uni. You threw grammar into this argument, not me. I was simply trying to prove that even someone who must live in such a wonderful town (which you still haven't named) can still make grammatical errors.

    And yet you give no reason why you're slating Hull so much. I don't normally like to throw the word snobbery around but in this case it seems to apply.

    Of course naming where you live is relevant. Because it would prove to us that you also live in an average British town which probably has a lot in common with Hull. You just don't want us to know that because it'd make you an easier target and a hypocrite . . .

    No you weren't, you just decided to jump into a debate to which you had no invitation. I'm from London actually, which is nothing like Hull, neither is it a town. Now pipe down before this thread gets off topic, which WOULD be irrelevant.

    Kthx.

    Sorry but is it necessary for you to post just because you're from Hull? No need to jump on the defensive because Hull is utter ****e.

    Mate it's an open forum, I can reply to whatever I want. There's plenty of bad things I could say about London, like every town/city in Britain, but I usually keep my trap shut because I don't like to offend people and also because I recognise there are lots of great things about London.

    This total ignorance about Northern cities, especially Hull, really gets on my nerves.

    Hull is NOTHING like London. NOTHING like. If you think they're similar then you are an idiot. End of story.

    Genius, that was before you told me you lived in London, possibly because you knew it has a higher crime rate than Hull.

    Bye.

    To be fair, you were running your mouth off in the first place by criticising someone's choice of uni.

    Just a bit off-topic...

    From my experience, you don't. Public transport is fine and, more often than not, you are close enough to get around ok by foot too.

    Basically when i was taking all the accommodation tours at each uni i visited, they all said you won't need a car.

    Now is this the case or is it an attempt to just keep traffic down? Each of my uni choices all had great public transport around the area, so is there any need?

    Cheers.
    we don't need a car, we walk everywhere as everything is within 5 minutes walking

    Why do you all need cars? Where I'm from, camels are more than good enough. And for all of you studying in hull, I think horses would be more appropriate as that city as backwards as can get.

    If you live in Halls or within 2 miles of campus then you can't take your car during working hours. You can have out of hours parking (5pm - 8am) free of charge but you would have to move it off campus during the day. No street parking nearby due to residents and hospital in the vicinity. If you live more than 2 miles then you can apply for a permit at £93 per year. Doesn't guarantee you a space but you can come onto campus to look for one. Pay and Display is 50p per hour and limited. Uni has good public transport links. Some students such as sports scholars and teaching placements may be considered with the approval of their school.
