    Hi Sam, nice to meet someone else who will be starting in Sept. I don't know about vaccinations I'm afraid, but I just assumed we would get an info pack nearer to starting in Sept and that will have all the info in about bursary, vaccinations, placement etc.

    What degree do you have?

    I haven't heard anything since I sent my offer response back either. Not sent my exam stuff yet though as I haven't finished.

    Well I emailed my results, had to dig them out. I did my degree at Hallam and they still wanted all my results.
    I was expecting them to at least send a response just acknowledge that they had received them but nvm.

    Have you guys been to Sheffield before?

    I sent them copies of my certificates etc and didn't hear anything back either. My best friend studied midwifery at Sheffield Hallam so I stayed with her a few times, and I've been to Sheffield for the interview, but apart from that haven't been much. I can't wait to start and get back to uni! I graduated in November and since then have just been working part time.

    I'm just assuming we won't hear much back now until people have got results.

    That's a tricky one a lot of the area around ecclesall road is residential so a lot of places u need a permit during the day but some of it is pay and display. Where will you be driving from?

    Well I haven't figured it out yet, but I come from North Yorkshire, so will either travel every day to uni or will stay in a travel lodge in Sheffield. But will be driving to campus either way (from home or travel lodge depending on which I do). Do you live in Sheffield?

    No I live in Manchester.

    I think the uni may help with accommodation if u live where ur placement is, I think I remember them saying that anyway. When you know what u are doing it will easier anyway, when that does happen I will be happy to help.

    P.s when you start uni I would have a drive round when the roads are quiet in the city centre, there are a lot of one way roads, and buses and taxi only roads.

    Thanks for offering any help I have been to Sheffield a couple of times now and love the city from what I've seen so far. I am going to have to move to Sheffield and not really sure what to do about accommodation though.

    Thanks for advice. I definitely think I will have to have a drive around first so I know where I am going and i'll try and check out parking too. Where are hoping to go for your placement?

    I want to go to get one at Leeds, but its just the luck of the draw I think.

    Hi guys, I found out today that I've got an offer for September too (apparently the letter was sent out in March, must have got lost in the post..) I asked when we'd find out where our placement was, and she said not til late August! Kind of annoying because I really wanted to get some accommodation sorted ASAP!

    Hi Rach, its so nice to start chatting to some people starting the course in sept! I am so excited. Cannot believe that we have to wait til July/August to find out where we will be placed, but nevermind, I'm just glad I got a place.

    What degree have you got/are you working towards?
