    Heya! Congratulations on your offer We'll be in class together this September. Yay!

    Well, for me GradPad isn't the best choice because I find all the locations undesirable/sorta unsafe. Also, the locations are not well equipped with the underground and buses take too long to reach uni.! Plus, I have heard other residents complaining about the internet connection However, many classmates have chosen this accommodation so that's where you will get to meet a lot of people from our class!

    I am going for student housing via Independent Student Living cos' it's in North/West London which is safer and 2 mins from the tube (28 mins to uni via Jubilee or Piccadilly Lines).

    Hope this helps

    Hi thr everyone:-)
    Im a recent Business Graduate from Bangladesh (Marketing Major) & am looking to get into Imperial's MS.c in Strategic Marketing program. My problem is my GPA is not that good (3.34/4) and on top of that they are gonna "convert" it which may cause it to go down even more.

    Can anyone give me some advice on how to compensate for the bad GPA? Will the admissions committee be convinced to offer me a place in the MS.c Strategic marketing program If I have good Job experience? or If I have Related extra curricular activities/ achievements or something?

    Hi Although I got no official information from the admission staff, I guess a good extra curricular activities / work experience will be an advantage to your application.

    I have been doing a marketing consultation project with a NGO and finally got a results that 7times more than they expected, have been in internship in Goldman Sachs (in a very very short period) and promoting to Assistant to CEO in a APEC leading company after my graduation from UG.

    Hope it helps.

    Anyway, which stage you are in and had you handed in your application yet?

    Hey! Yes, I have joined the Facebook group and students have been discussing flat shares and private housing. So, I am sure once Rachel adds you, you can get in touch with those with people and post any other questions

    Hey!

    I thought i would try and help!

    I live at Gradpad (wood lane) and last year i lived at Griffon. Connections at wood lane are really good (2 tube lines and can get to south ken in about 25 mins door to door and central London in 15 mins max!)

    I love wood lane the site is awesome, literally everything you could ever want and the internet is really good. I have heard that people worry about the internet but i don't know where these stories come from! Ask anyone at Gradpad - the internet is really good, quick and doesn't break!

    Hope this helps!

    Hey everyone!

    I just accepted an offer for the MSc Conservation Science Course! Yay! I'm very excited and will be situated at Silwood Park Campus. Anyone else on here doing the same course or moving to Silwood? I want to live off campus in Ascot, but won't be back in the UK till August or September to start looking for accommodation. It would be great to get in touch with people who are also thinking of living off campus.

    Hey all!

    I've accepted an offer for an MSc Computing Sciences course, but still haven't gotten around to sorting out accommodation yet. I think the GradPad places are a bit too dear for me, but would like somewhere that can commute to the campus without too much difficulty. But yeah would be good to get in touch with other people looking for accommodation. I'm currently living in Northern Ireland at the minute.

    Hey guys,


    Has any of you experience with meeting your conditions regarding the Bachelor transcript? I will be done with my Bsc ont he 15th of August. However, my official transcript will not be completed until late september. Because the dean has to sign everything and he will be on vacation, this will take forever- What should I do?
    Is there maybe a form or something? My Uni will officially know, that I have passed and my grade, its just the transcript

    Thanks! Same to you!...Yeah it does seem difficult to find people who are going to Silwood. It's strange because the campus seems huge. Do you know the cost of on campus accommodation? I figure it's going to be a lot more expensive than off, but compared to where I last lived in England (Coventry), accommodation looks pricey regardless which option I take!

    MSc Taxonomy and Biodiversity

    As living costs are so expensive I'll be commuting from home rather than living in accomodation. My personal life probably won't be as great but I just can't afford London rates.

    Well I've never been to the UK before, so I'm a little more comfortable with the on campus accommodation. It at's at least a lot cheaper than the options for students in South Kensington! But I would have thought the campus accommodation worked out cheaper. I guess both options have their advantages and issues!
    Currently I'm facing issues with my CAS, hope that gets sorted out in time for my VISA applications!

    Perhaps you're right about the cost; I'm running on an assumption based on where I studied last in the UK and some other posts I've seen on TSR...The visa applications shouldn't take too long, but I guess it depends what country you're coming from. What is wrong with your CAS? I haven't even applied yet because I still have to pay the deposit fee, and I won't get my CAS until that's done apparently. Last time I applied for a visa, I got it right before I flew to the UK in mid-September! So if you're doing this now, I think you'll be fine.

    I had a similar problem and my university registry were able to help. May be worth dropping them an email? J

    Hi,

    I've got a conditional offer (which I should meet) for the MRes in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation

    I've applied for on-campus accommodation: £93/w for shared bathroom/kitchen, including energy bills. Ascot/Sunningdale is quite a wealthy area, so I can't imagine that it is cheaper to rent privately.
