    That's the point, i'm leaning towards both! they have different features that attract me and it's so hard to decide.. maybe you know if i could learn a new foreign language in manchester, although i didnt choose a course with a modern language?

    Yep, you can definitely learn a new language at Manchester, through one of two routes
    The university's LEAP programme, which may be a part of degree, if you want it to be http://www.ulc.manchester.ac.uk/lang...s/#d.en.152173
    The International Society, which is on campus and which has strong links to the uni, but which isn't a part of it. Courses there aren't part of your degree http://www.internationalsociety.org.uk/Classes.html

    The work placement is a fantastic opportunity - it's something that will give you the skills and experience that graduate employers want to see, and it will make you far more employable when you come to graduate. Indeed, it's fairly common for people to get a graduate job in the same place where they did their placement.

    Is it unusual to have not heard anything back by now? I'm a mature student applying for Computer Science - I don't have particularly relevant A Levels (Chemistry, Biology, Geography) but I've worked in Industry for 7 years (IT Support/SysAdmin stuff) and have some OU credits in Maths, Engineering and Science (inc. Physics) amounting to 110 credits.

    I'm paranoid that without an A level in Maths it'll be an automatic rejection - I'm now thinking I should have applied for the Foundation year and progressed from there

    You should email or phone the admissions office they'll be able to help you.

    It's not unusual at all, but if you're concerned, you can contact the computer science department. It might be worth mentioning to them that if you're unsuccessful for the main degree, you'd be interested in the foundation year.

    Have you looked at the Accommodation FAQ? It's got loads of information on various aspects of the accommodation available, including campuses etc.

    When you say your course is based in the city centre, do you mean Sackville Street/North Campus?

    Ok, cool. Wright Robinson and Weston Hall are by far the most convenient as they're right next to the Sackville Street campus. However, they (and the city halls in general) have a reputation for being less social with a large number of international students. Fallowfield, on the other hand, is much further away but also a lot more social and Victoria Park is kind of in between in both respects. Which campus you choose depends on whether you favour convenience or social life.

    My course is based at Sackville Street but I think if I was to live in halls, I'd find living in the city halls slightly depressing (particularly Weston Hall and Wright Robinson). I'd prefer Victoria Park or Fallowfield, personally.

    Thanks (and to Ki Yung Na as well) - Phoned them but none of the Admission Officers were there, guy who took my call said he's pass on my details and they'd call me back. If I don't hear back on Monday I'll chase them up.

    I guess worse case if I do get a rejection I could see about going through Extra (If I decline any other offers I might get).
