    This happens every year and it's a pain in the arse. The best thing you can do is join Liverpool vet school 2015-2020 on Facebook and ask if anyone would like to swap with you, or join a Liverpool freshers page, there is always someone who wants what you have but got something you want instead. You can ring accommodation up, but you might not have any luck with that, worth a try!

    Okay I will try that thank you!! It's a pain cause it's complete opposite of my choices but I will make the most of it! Do you tend to go into flats with other vet people or is it mixed... Just because of the pain of having to get to campus and back every day??

    What off campus accommodation have they put you in? As far as I'm aware you're with a random bunch of people from a variety of different courses, you may get a vet student in with you but you'll have to wait and see. There is a bus from the off campus accommodation which drops you off in the middle of campus and it runs quite regularly, but beware of ques for 9am lectures, I've seen some wonderful photos of mile long ques for the bus in the morning.
    I can't offer much advice about accommodation as I live in my own house, but some of the girls in my year lived in student accommodation and might be able to answer on Facebook any questions you may have about it

    Hi there, I've just spent my year out working on our own and other dairy farms. From experience id wear good waterproof trousers and a pair of waterproof sleeves for milking but it also depends on the size of the unit. A waterproof top and bottoms will do the job perfectly. Also a baseball cap or something to that effect will be useful as you don't want some poo in your hair! Ive had Bekina wellies for over two years but they were pricey so id recommend Dunlop Purofort which are relatively cheap and very comfy. Get steel toe capped ones as cows are heavy!!haha
    But have fun, i love working on dairy farms!

    Can I ask where you are based? I'm in Birmingham and desperately looking for a dairy placement for next summer.

    You have to be willing to drive to get to a dairy in the Birmingham area, but try these:

    Try googling:

    Mount pleasant farm - Kings norton, Birmingham. It is a school farm, but it has a working dairy farm so they will more than likely take you

    Grovewood farm dairy - Birmingham road, Birmingham

    W & k Bostock dairy - shustoke, Birmingham

    Slightly irrelevant to this thread but - Would anyone happen to know a farm happy for me to help with lambing even though I've never done it before? I'm nearly 17 going into lower sixth and I'm very much aware that this coming spring 2016 is my last chance before application next year. I live in the SW of England so anywhere around there ideally, thanks in advance

    In October a list of farmers wanting help with lambing will be put on the NSA website, so it's probably easiest to check there. The farmer will specify on the list whether they want someone with experience or not - most don't mind

    Hi there, unfortunately my two dairy contacts are in North Yorkshire, but one of them has accommodation for volunteers if you're willing to stay away from home

    Thank you for replying. I think I may have found something in Shropshire which is a little easier for me to get to, although will have to stay there.

    Im actually based in ireland, dairy work is well paid here. Most farms will usually only take you on for periods over 6 months. Great way to spend a year out though, saving lots for uni
