I'm applying to do radiography at cardiff uni at sept 2010 and I am having trouble deciding which accommodation I should choose as my first choice, talybont north or allensbank house?
Initally allensbank appealed to me because it was very close to my lectures, but i realised the price is rather costly and bit far out from the city. On the other hand, talybont north is cheaper in comparison but further away from the Heath hospital.
In terms of social aspects, would it be wise to choose allensbank house because the people who live there consist of students who are studying healthcare subjects (nursing, radiotherapy etc) and thus share similar term time and interest (assumingly) with each other.
Or would my uni experience be more interesting if i chose talybont north, as there are number of students studying a wide range of subjects compared to the students who live in allensbank. But I was informed that my course is busier than most other courses, so would I find time to actually get to know my flatmates?
are there any healthcare students who will recommend talybont north as an ideal place to stay in?
