    To any current students from London.......can you please tell me how you travel to St. Andrew's and what the cheapest way is?
    my flatmate who's from london usually takes the train because if you book in advance (not even by that much) you can get it really cheap. by cheap I mean like the return tickets she got for the after exam period which cost her around £45.

    oh yay this is post #2222!

    When I went to the open day I got a coach to Edinburgh and the train - a grand total of £30.

    She's actually going back over easter now and her return ticket (still train) went for £30, and she said it takes about 5½ h. I honestly don't think that's too bad considering it takes me almost 3 h just to get from StA to Glasgow.. Also, it's so much less fuss than flying, cause you'd still have to take the train from Edinburgh to Leuchars and then a bus to StA..

    How long did that journey take you?? You must have stayed overnight, I'd guess? :confused:

    Seriously train is the best way - going by plane takes a tad longer... going by coach takes an eternity and isn't even that much cheaper.. - I can be at my doorstep in less than 6 hours from getting on the train at Leuchars. I just bought my tickets and return it cost me 54 quid so it's not too bad at all - if you buy earlier it's even cheaper.

    I'm not sure what the best plan of attack is, but I'd try these things as soon as possible:

    (1) Get in contect with the university accommodation people and ask if you can put your name down for any vacancies arising in halls. People will have applied as a back-up option for if they can't find a flat in town, and they won't all be needing the places they've been offered. I don't know how likely it is they'll come up with a place for you, but if you don't ask, you won't get anywhere.

    (2) There will be people who've applied to halls and haven't got in - ask around, and see if you can find a group of people you can join. Some of my flatmates are in this situation. Post something on Facebook saying you're looking for people, that works quite well in my experience.

    (3) Get house lists now, start finding places, and while you're doing that, try to get a group organised. There's no point on focussing on sorting a group if you don't have any houses to look at after that.

    I hope that helps. I can PM you some sites of properties if you want. Let me know.
    Thank you!

    Don't mean to be mean or anything, but I am still very much in shock - how on earth did you not even know about the deadline?:eek:

    Have you spoken to accommodation services? Some of the women in there are right *****es, but some of them are quite nice, they managed to sort my flatmate out at the beginning of this year when she had nowhere to live (because she'd cocked up the application process last year)

    How easy is it to take a module in IR if it's not related to your degree? I've been looking around the website and IR sounds the most interesting other subject around... is it really over subscribed and hard to get into?

    Probably one of the most popular modules. From what I've heard it's not that easy to get into as it is heavily oversubscribed.

    Tbh I don't know of anyone who asked to do IR as an extra module and got turned down, many of my friends are studying it even though its not directly related to their degrees, so you'd probably be fine.

    I was told on the open day that you need the grades from a level required to get into the course in the first place, i.e. AAA.

    as far as I know you will be allowed to take one Arts module if you want, but no more.

    You can take French for science - which is what you would have taken if you'd got an offer for Maths w/French BSc anyway.
