    Hello, I'm starting at another uni in Manc but will be living about 5 mins walk from Salford Campus (taking the train in to Oxford Road) in the morning. Going to be doing EEE but from what my friends tell me Engineering courses aren't v social. Was looking round Salford yesterday & there is a riverside student pub right next to main campus. It has free wi-fi & two meals with beers came in at under £10.
    My course doesn't start till 19th so Im hoping to do a bit of salford welcome week :P

    No. No it isn't. The woman in Wilko thought I was mental when I bought a load of plastercine there last year.
    Lol! Just because they think you're mental doesn't make it a bad place.

    To be fair I think I'd view someone as mental if they were buying large quantities of plasticine. It would run through my head "Why do they need all this plasticine? What are they going to do with it? I think they're a bit weird".

    Of course it would be fine if they were also buying a book at the same time entitled "Film SFX Guide: How to sculpt model buildings".

    LOL. So true. But if they looked student-ish, I guess I'd just assume it was for their course. Like.. physics labs or something. ;P

    Does anyone know anything about The Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship that Salford offers?

    Do you get it all at once or is it split throughout the year like the maintenance loan is?

    It also says you have to complete the PN1 form to receive it. Is that just the usual form you fill out for Maintenance/Tuition Fees?

    yeah i rung up about that bursary and they said when the university gets your grades and they are the same as or more than the required grade to get the bursary they will send you a letter about it thats what they said to me anyway

    I'm going to write for the Student Newspaper - the Mancunion in September.
    I've been watching David McCandless on TED
    http://www.ted.com/talks/david_mccan...alization.html
    & I think I'd like to make some graphs and write an article about it.
    Media City looks really swish.
