    Aha same choices as me! Constantine is my first choice and it's between Halifax and Alcuin doe my second I think we have to choose around 4-6 options when we apply so I'm going to have to have a think about my other options :P x

    Constantine is nowhere near campus 😬 and hes east is shite tbh, stay in hes west! I'd recommend Alcuin as I live there, but it's bloody expensive and I spend most of my time in Halifax now and I wish I had got in there, Derwents cottages are nice too the nice thing about Alcuin is its 2 mins from the building most of the lectures and seminars are held in

    Were you from York originally just because I'm moving 2 hours away and I won't know the area so I'm super scared hahah! Also in terms of placements how far on average is travelling to them?

    I'm from Leeds but I live a 20 drive from York and it's closer than Leeds to me haha. Placements I'll be honest with you. You will have to travel far, some people go as far as Northallerton and Scarborough. So if you're not prepared for 5am starts to be in placement for 7 York isn't for you. For example this placement just gone I was only abour 4 miles away from uni but I was still up at 5 in the morning because I had to be there for 7 since I travel by buses. My next placement is in Harrogate where again I'll be getting up at 5 to be getting the 6am bus from uni to get to 6:45 train to Harrogate. Placements are hard, they expect a lot from you as most have high expectations of York students as it's such a good school, so be prepared for very early starts and really take placements seriously
