    As a nursing student, you're in Stirling all year. It doesn't really matter which option you choose since you can just move into a private let in June if you pick the shorter tenancy. Also don't get your hopes up for getting your choice of accommodation, I put all campus flats on my application and was given Union Street, even after phoning and saying I didn't want off-campus accommodation. They tend to try and put all the student nurses together in the Union Street or Lower Bridge Street flats so they're in walking distance of the bus and train stations to get to placement.

    I haven't applied for accomodation yet as I am waiting for an offer for Queen's although I'll probably still pick Stirling as I haven't heard many good things about the staff at Queens. Does anyone have any images of John Forty's Court as this is where the nursing students are meant to be staying this year?

    Also how do you apply as a group because my friend has applied for accommodation but there was no option for a group...?

    When you're at uni a 4 week bus pass is around £27 which will get you between uni and town as many times as you want. Placement costs will vary depending on where you are, but you'll usually need a 4-week student bus pass which is about £70 (you need to order a First Student ID card from their website for this price or it will be £90). If there's anything else you want to know, let me know
