    Just wondering about lectures; are the slides for each lecture available before each lecture, or after, or not at all?

    For first and second year lectures, the slides are generally given to you in advance in the module handbook, with the caveat that some lecturers don't upload completed slides in advance (to encourage people to come to the actual lectures) and some will give you bullet pointed notes but not the slides themselves.

    is it the 44pounds one? I didn't pay it until like 2 weeks ago so guess it isn't urgent.
    Although I got my certificate after I started 1st year since I had some issues in completing it.

    As Nottie said, you can pay later; like well into the first year. I remember an email being sent around to remind people to pay, don't think I paid until about two months ago haha

    But if you can, try pay it soon after receiving your offer so you have less to worry about at the end of the year when you're likely to have not much money left :P

    Any current students got any stationary advice? Was going to buy it when i got there but its all on sale at the minute. Do you get a lot of useful booklets/handouts or are you expected to make your own notes from the textbooks and lectures?

    Lecturers expect you to do some extra reading but usually the notes they give out + notes you make during lecture are good enough to pass and even get a decent mark.
    I made literally no notes except the ones during lectures in 1st term and managed to pass (didn't do awesome though) but in 2nd term I copy pasted the lecture slides for all modules and did waay better

    I pretty much got through the year with using only black biros and a good few A4 notepads, but that was mainly in first semester.
    I used to write up lectures after a few days to refresh what I learnt.
    But in second semester I realised I was better off just re-reading lecture slides.

    I'd say just get what you think will help you the most and when you get here you'll either stick with it or end up coming up with a new way to learn haha

    Casual clothing unless you're on placement.

    So basically what you'd wear day to day, it's really not strict at all. Occasionally people will be dressed in fancy dress to lectures to raise money for charity etc.

    Since placements start year 1 I should bring some smart attire right?

    Do we need to carry much on a day-to-day basis other than just stationary? Also, what's the situation with textbooks (buy them or library or ??)?

    There are 3 hospital visits and 4 GP placement over the year. And an OSCE exam for which you need to dress smartly. So yeah

    Don't buy textbooks. But be quick in the library cause they tend to disappear after the first week.
    Depending on the day you have to carry the lecture notes that are given out during first few days of the term and sometimes it's like 5 different booklets which can be quite heavy!
