    Hey, I applied a while ago so I don't remember but I've mainly applied for the en suites (Lakeside was one I think), might just get off campus instead though. You?

    I'm starting the Economics MSc course also this September. Does anyone know how many times a week we have to attend, or any idea on teaching hours?

    I haven't heard from accom yet but apparently we get told by the 5th. And also I'm not sure about teaching hours but I guess it's affected by how well you do in the pre sessional maths course. Have you guys registered for it?

    Yeah I've registered for it and there's an online maths exam to do for practice. I'm staying in Victoria halls as I didn't get any on campus.

    How do you know you didn't get any on campus? I'm still looking for a decent studio off campus but haven't been able to find one.

    I phoned the accommodation and they told me they're overbooked this year. Apparently it's rare for postgraduates to get on campus, if that's true. You should email Victoria hall for studios if there's a drop out or keep looking on unite studnet's website, but they're expensive. I got lucky last week and someone dropped out of Victoria hall, not sure how it is though.

    I'm surprised to hear that, I still haven't heard anything back but I'm assuming it'll be the same. It's unacceptable to be honest, they should openly state that on campus accom is unlikely to be allocated and that we should look at making our own arrangements. I did email Victoria halls but they haven't got back to me yet, I think I'll ramp up my search for off campus now.

    Yeah the ridiculous application process has left many completely unprepared for this.
    Would have loved Victoria Halls!
    I called up every private halls in coventry yesterday. Unfortunately they are all full apart from the unicitylodge, which only have 2 bed and 4 bed apartments left.

    I'm currently looking for a flat/house share in Canley, since that is walking distance to the uni.
