    Hi. Huddersfield's my insurance. Do I need to book my accommodation yet? Or can I wait to see if I actually end up going here? I can't find the information on either websites... :/

    Hi @HazMusicPanda

    A good question! There's no need to book accommodation just yet, but you might find it useful to keep this link handy (http://www.hud.ac.uk/uni-life/accommodation/) in case you do join us in September.

    Hi, I've put Huddersfield as my first choice to study history but I'm so worried about getting the grades and I don't want to go to my insurance choice so if I get a grade below what is required, how accommodating are hudds in terms of accepting people?

    Hi!

    Thanks for getting in touch. We want to reassure you that it's not unusual for students to be anxious at this stage.
    If you don't get the grades required then the admissions tutor for your course would look again at your application. If you've put us as your first choice it means that you have already decided this is the course and the Uni for you. In those circumstances the admissions tutor will try and look favourably on your application by taking all aspects of it into account.

    We hope this helps to reassure you. If you have any more concerns then we can put you in contact with the admissions team.

    Best of luck for results day!

    Hi, I have applied for pharmacy this year but I'm a bit worried about not getting the grades. I know that the university may accept one or two grades below, but I feel I may get 3 grades below the requirements. Would the university still consider my application on results day? And for example would they accept BCC if they really liked my application?

    Hi Anumusman

    Thanks for your message, it's not unusual for students to be anxious at this stage

    As we mentioned in the post above to another applicant, if you don't get the grades required then the admissions tutor for your course would look again at your application, taking all aspects of it into account.

    If you are still concerned, you can contact our recruitment team by email at [email protected].

    We hope this helps to reassure you - best of luck for results day!
