    :hi:

    I've applied for a postgraduate course at Sheffield (MRes Translational Oncology), I'm on a gap year at the moment to build up funds. I got an unconditional offer earlier this month. Fairly certain it'll be my first choice

    It is, it's basically 'translating' the biology of cancer into the development of therapeutics and improving diagnosis+ prognosis accuracy

    Good luck!

    Ahh, fair enough. I just really like the whole atmosphere at Sheffield a bit more than Nottingham *it seems friendlier imo* ! Plus, I preferred the accommodation a little more at Sheffield haha.

    Almost! Just waiting on Manchester but I don't really want to go there even if they did give me an offer.

    Do you study at Sheffield or just applying atm? If so, what are you studying

    Yeah, Nottingham was my favourite for the course tbh, but when i visited the uni for openday, i thought the city was really rough and dangerous, so ended up picking Birmingham instead xD (ironic, i know) and no, I am an undergraduate applicant! My first choice is Durham, but I probably wont even get in haha , and I have applied for International Business Management with a year abroad , Sheffield is such a nice city, and very student based and OMG accommodation is to die for in Sheffield, it is a very nice village

    I had a summer school at Sheffield and the accommodation is soooo lovely! The cafe there (endcliffe I think) also has great food! I'm from closeby so I don't find Sheffield that intriguing haha but the university is great! And the SU is as fab as they say!

    I'm applying for Medicine! ABBC, no gap year and also applied to Leeds, Manchester & Bristol :-)
