    If I've put Northampton as my insurance choice, am I still able to select accommodation or not?
    Hi

    You will only be able to apply for accommodation if you have made us your firm choice.

    Hello.
    I received an offer for Children's Nursing this morning (very exciting as it's my first choice!) however, the host hospital I've been given is Milton Keynes...
    I'm not sure what this means with regards to accommodation as I wouldn't want to live in Halls in Northampton if I had to travel to Milton Keynes Hospital - is there accommodation for nursing students there? Thanks
    Hi!

    Firstly congratulations! There is accommodation available at Milton Keynes which you can apply for if you would prefer to stay there. You would need to contact them to arrange.

    Good luck!

    Hey

    Just wondering what does the rent cover in the accomadation price and is their anything else I will need to pay for before I arrive and when I am there

    Thanks Jordan
    Hi Jordan

    It covers your room (obviously) as well as the main utility bills for heating, lighting, water and electricity. Your room will have network and WiFi access, providing links to the University computer network.

    You will also need to pay a £300 deposit to secure your room.

    Hope that helps!

    Hello,
    I have been offered a conditional offer at the UoN to study OT in Sept. Please I am not clear about exams. Honestly, I hate exams!!!! I don't mind a couple but regular exams oh no!!!! I understand there is only Anatomy and Physiology exams in the first year and that is it. Is this correct? I really really want to make NoN my firm choice. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Kind regards
    Hi

    The programme offers a diverse range in the way students are assessed within modules including written assignments, examinations, presentations, reflective essays and case notes.

    I hope that helps

    Which accommodation would you say is better- ensuite accommodation on Park campus or in the Town centre?

    Park campus you have the student bars, parking, more students and next to classrooms, but in the town centre you have shops and cafes, nightlife, nicer accommodation and its next to the clinic I'll be doing placememnt at.

    If I were in town centre accommodation do you think I would miss out on parties and stuff which go on in the flats on Park campus or would I still have all that in the accommodation in the town centre?

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    Not at all, St John's halls has its own little community of which you will find a lot of students who are going to town will visit you beforehand and can go out together. Plus, the main bonus is you don't have to pay for a taxi either!

    You will only be staying in halls for the first year and then, if you choose to you can move into a student house with friends nearer the campus if your prefer.

    I hope this helped!

    Can someone please explain what the assessment block is? I might study podiatry as a international student and was wondering if I would have to stay at the university for the entire assessment block.
