    Yep they interview on the visit day. you would have been given a letter for the visit day telling you that you would be interviewed to get on your course. Its quite an informal interview though, just be calm, relax, answer their questions(why are you on the course, where do you hope it will lead to etc.) And one thing. If they offer you a place, dont come out the room looking excited and telling your tour group youve been given an offer like I did, it can un nerve and upset a few people, big oops on my part.
    It doesn't on my applicant letter, and i already have my offer so it wouldn't be to get on my course...are you sure this isn't subject specific?

    Since it's Christmas, it will probably take until after the holidays, or even more.

    Don't let it get to you, you shouldn't be waiting for a reply in the holidays.

    True. I talked to some Manchester applicants on fb and they said they got their offer a week after applying. You should probably expect them to get back to you after Jan 5th. I applied one week before the winter break and I haven't heard from them since then. They might wait until the ucas Jan 15th deadline to make a decision on some applications.

    Howdy! I'm a first year Pharmacy student studying at the University of Manchester. Currently I'm living in halls, Sheavyn House and if anyone has any questions, fire away and I'll try my best to answer them (or ask someone for you). I can post photos for things too if you want. Anything to try and help you make decisions.

    I absolutely love Sheavyn! Out of all the other accommodations that I've been in, this one I have found perfect for me and for my flatmates too I think. Where are your other undecided five?

    Ah man. It's hard to kind of answer that. Everywhere has party's going on at different times, every weekend generally has something kicking off. It's less the halls that are the party places and more the people living in them. There's a load of people in my flat who like having parties and they're generally getting mortal every Friday, but then there's other flats that are silent all the time. I've been to parties in Sheavyn, Oak House and Owens Park, but I'd hate to start labelling them.
    Sheavyn, Ashburne, Richmond and Woolton are maybe quieter most nights?
    Everywhere gets parties, you either join in or get used to it

    Any opinions on the Victoria Halls? They look nice from the pictures, are catered within walking distance from the university but don't know too much beyond that...

    Ooh..just found that Physics at Manchester has 51% people getting firsts, which is a lot higher than the other unis I've looked at O_o ...is that likely to be due to good teaching or just because of a good/talented cohort?

    I'd say a bit of both but maybe a talented cohort - 2 A*s and an A as a minimum requirement is quite high!

    Would you say that Victoria Park as a whole would be less party? So if you don't like the mad partying people, the best bet is Victoria Park?
