    Good plan
    The staff do seem really nice. I like the fact that we'll be in a small group of around 50 too.

    The private halls sound fancy, what are they like?

    Do you know anyone else who's been accepted onto the course?

    So I'll be travelling from the outskirts of Barnsley. It only takes about 20 mins to get to the station by train. How close is your accommodation to R.Winston building? Do you know Sheffield quite well? I've not found anyone else yet either.

    That's cool You'll enjoy university... so much to do, learning is so different and you can make some good friends. Third year is when it's most tough though with dissertations to write up. Are you thinking of joining any clubs or societies?

    I'm really looking forward to placement too but I'm also a fan of the theory side of things Is there a speciality / modality you're mostly interested in like plain film, MRI, US? I've just bought some books to do with physics and radiation I'm going to have a read through before Sept. I've heard that the physics module is the most daunting.

    Im really interested in US long term, although all the elements facinate me! Which area are you most interested in? What books have you bought?

    I'd initially like to work in trauma but my long term goal is to specialise in musculoskeletal ultrasound. Do you like the thought of reporting your own images? So a radiologist I work with said 'Physics for Chemists' (Cockett et al) will help with calculus and I found another book called 'Principles of Radiological Physics'.

    Hey thanks for the thread! Can't get enough of all the radiography threads, interested in applying to uni Sept 2017, could you let me know all the postgrad specialities/options?
