    People that have been to Sheffield, did anyone get a bus from Sheffield train station to the department of human communication? Their website has no information about public transport and I do not trust google maps anyway for buses!!
    Last year I took a taxi from the station but caught the tram back - tram stops at the actual train station but it was a short walk down the hill from the uni to the tram stop

    Starting to get worried now as within 4 days of sending my UCAS off I got an offer from Sheffield for speech science and a rejection for SLT from Reading but got offered language science and psychology instead, so far have't got any for actual SLT and starting to wonder if I will starting to think the a levels i'm doing aren't want they are wanting compared to other students
    What A levels are you doing? It might be worth emailing the universities and just asking why you got rejected for SLT but accepted onto other courses. All the best!

    The nearest tram stop is 'University of Sheffield' on Upper Hanover Street about five minutes away. The nearest bus stop is outside the children's hospital on Western Bank just a minute away. If you want specific directions see if there are any for Weston Park Museum as the School is directly behind that.

    To be honest, unless it is chucking it down, one of the nice things about going to interviews is going to new cities you have probably never visited before and the best way to do that is on foot. The School is only like a mile and a half from the train station.

    I sent off my application at the end of November and haven't heard a single thing from Reading!! I am slightly worried now as it has been quite a while! Do you know if they do it in stages or anything? It's been about 10 weeks now and i'm getting rather stressed about it!
    I got an offer two days ago. But I applied last year too and they didn't reply until two weeks after the deadline so who knows?

    Do we need to take anything with us for the interview at DMU? Like identification documents or anything like that?
    We need 1 form of ID, the originals and photocopies of GCSE (etc.) certificates, and Declaration Form 1a (criminal convictions form)

    I agree. You could just walk through town and up West Street, it shouldn't take more than 20ish minutes (do calculate some extra time though).

    Alternatively, bus 95 from the interchange (next to to train station) also goes directly up to uni, the stop just past the Arts Tower (tallest building) is near Mushroom lane and just a 5 min walk from the department.

They said my application is on hold and they will update track as soon as the tutor has made a decision. So currently I am in the maybe pile then lol. I thought as much but I just want to be put out of my mysery!
