    How are we supposed to apply for accommodation. Do we wait for a letter with student details or are we supposed to go on the website and just apply. I have firmed manchester.
    You apply online once you have an offer, using the 7 digit student id number that should be in the letters / emails they've sent you.

    Which is? How did you get the job offer?
    I won't say where I work or what I do, because that would make me far too identifiable. It's not directly related to politics, but it's a fairly niche sector I'd wanted to work in for a while. I actually found it much easier to get a job than I'd anticipated - I got an interview for every job I applied for.

    I got the job offer by applying for it and going to interview, though the CareersService did help.

    Do stuff outside of your degree. That means
    - societies (leadership positions where possible, it's even better if they're directly relevant to your career ambitions)
    - volunteering (again, make it relevant where possible, and do it via the Manchester Leadership Programme in second year)
    - paid work - not just bar work or anything quite so standard and mundane. You could work for the university as an alumni caller or student ambassador (amongst other jobs), for the SU, or for an outside company. But make sure you are actually developing new skills that will set you apart, even if it doesn't directly relate to your career ambitions

    Start early too - in first semester of first year, and go along to the careers service then too. Putting it all off until third year is far too late, given that many jobs go to puerile who've already worked for that company, and job offers are often given out to first and second years.

    Finally, you'll occasionally see the words Make the Most of Manchester. Seriously, do make the most of it. Your three years there are shorter than you imagine, and you'll have many opportunities that will never come your way again. Don't squander it.

    For those that have offers, what kind of communication have you received? I had an invite to an open day and an email that told me I'll be receiving monthly updates from the university. But I haven't received an ID number or any other details. Am I alone?

    Are you quite certain you've not received a student id number? It's not in a separate email, it's normally embedded within other emails they've sent you. It's a 7 digit number that usually starts wut a 7, 8 or 9.

    Not all departments do them. If you're keen to go along, you can always email the department and ask if they hold any post offer open days.

    If they don't, and you haven't yet seen the university, there are non-subject specific accommodation tours and guided campus visits on most Wednesdays.

    In that case you'll need to email your department or the Student Services Centre, but don't be surprised if you don't get a response until after 5th January - there's only a skeleton staff at this time of year, and nothing at all from Thursday onwards.

    Hmm. It might just depend on the department.

    Hey guys, if someone could answer this question, I would really appreciate it.

    I am applying for MSc in Petroleum Geoscience, my question is, do I have to write a personal statement? Nowhere does it say that I have to, or don't have to write one, I just wanna double check. Can anyone confirm please!
