Hopefully living in Birmingham if money allows, I don't fancy commuting from Leicester everyday! What about you? :-)

Yeah I applied for the bursary. Sent all my stuff off and got confirmation that i will be getting the travel allowance. The uni told me on friday that i'm on their bursary list and they have 44 bursaries for MA students this year! Have you had your confirmation yet? I'm just waiting to hear about the maintainence grant now really as that would be a big help with living costs! I looked at a few houses but wasn't overly impressed so went for halls. They are on-suite rooms but you share a large kitchen and living space with 6 others so it's not too bad!

Yeah I've had confirmation too. I hadn't considered halls, I'll have to have a look! X

Congrats on the Bursary! The one i'm booking is called Cadnam Halls! I didn't find it on many websites but it randomly cropped up on one! It's in harborn so it's a nice location! Hope you find something!

I hope so. It's a bit nerve wracking waiting for them to send stuff.

It's going to be so good! I'm half tempted to make a Social Work MA 2015/16 facebook group but I'm not sure, what do you think? x

I'd say go for it! I think it would be great to make friends before we start...atleast we will all recognise each other!
