    Hi,

    This thread is for everyone who applies to, firms, insures and becomes a fresher at Manchester, starting September 2014! This is the place to find other applicants for your course, and to chat about applying to Manchester.

    First though, I'd like to draw your attention to some really useful resources on TSR
    General FAQ
    Accommodation FAQ
    If you've got any questions that are related to those resources, it's generally best to post in those threads

    If you're a postgrad applicant, then the postgrad chat thread is here

    Good luck with your applications and A2 results! :^_^:

    I remember you asking about halls, so you might like to go on the accommodation tour. They depart from Alan Turing building, and whilst Gabs won't be open, it might be nice to get an idea of what halls look like

    It'll depends on the department - I'd suggest emailing the department to ask.

    What subject are you applying for? Some (eg medicine) are genuine selection tools, but others (eg physics) just use it as a marketing tool and only invite those who are getting an offer.

    If you make the department aware that you're going to be travelling then they may be willing to make adjustments (eg Skype interviews), though they may not - don't ask don't get and all that, though you should phrase it delicately.
