Anyone firmed Birmingham yet, conditional or unconditional? If so for what subject, and have you applied for accommodation?

Hey, just giving this thread a bump :bump: Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific university or course forum should help you get more responses. :yy:

If you haven’t already found it, then university connect is a really useful way for finding people at your course/university! You can also find a list of applicant threads and courses here.

Looking at around £7000 in maintenance loans and grants and then £2000 for a bursary from Birmingham. That leaves between £2500 or less to live on which seems unfeesable

Is that £2500 after you've took off the accommodation costs?

Yeah give or take a couple of hundred. It sounds a lot but when you take into account food, social stuff, travel it's actually really not

I have an offer for Law, quite tempted to firm it. Anyone else?

Also would anyone care to explain to me which accommodation is decent? I would be looking for en-suite and self catered, I didn't get a chance to look at the accommodation, I went on a campus tour and not an open day.

Mason is ensuite and self catered in the vale, that's the only one I managed to look at.
The rooms were nice but the ensuite was a wet room. The kitchen area was modern and big
It's very expensive

Not too fussed about the price as long as it's not a ridiculous amount, how much is it? Also, where is it?
