    I have a few questions as I'm only 16 in my final GCSE year but looking at universities now to get a guideline of what I should take for my A-levels.

    1) Have you ever met anyone who is in or know anything about the journalism and media studies course or the facilities for people taking a media studies course of some form?
    I know several people who are into Journalism and (I think) study it, or something like English.. From being a representative at Activities Council (Student Society Meetings) and seeing people from the Student newspaper etc..

    Came to the open day yesterday and the girl who showed us around the accommodation mentioned that she had not been in halls as she got into Portsmouth through clearing....she had to find private rental property which sounded a bit stressful. I am thinking of Portsmouth as my insurance but really want to be in halls. Do most people who have it as their insurance not get places in halls???

    It depends, Nottingham is a Russell group however I don't know much about the city. I'd stay well clear of Bradford its not a great area at all.

    I have a few questions about the course. How are you finding Criminology and Criminal Justice course and is it really hard? I have chosen the same course to study this year in university of Portsmouth however I’m really worrying that it’s going to be too hard since I never really studying anything to do with law .By doing my research I am finding this course interesting but I’m just worried that is it very challenging. Just would like to know your overview of the course and is it worth it.

    I'm not a student at Portsmouth but I do live in Nottingham and can answer any questions you have about the city - just message me privately if you have any questions.

    (I'm going to Portsmouth in September but I've only visited Portsmouth once so I'm no expert when it comes to Portsmouth!)

    Hi,

    Is it true that visitors (parents included I suppose) are not allowed in Guildhall particularly in James Watson? If this is true, which hall are less strict in terms of having visitors? My parents will have to drop by once in a while and I want them to be able to stay for few hours before heading back home.

    Some of my friends lived in James Watson in the first year so technically I was a "visitor" on many occasions and there was no problem.

    What I was told on the accommodation tour was to wait till you meet your flat mates before buying things like kettles and toasters ect as you can all pitch in with buying one or somebody may bring one and you won't need many I know many friends who have done this also. Obviously bringing your own cutlery and plates ect is a good idea
