Hi, I have applied for Policing and Investigation. Just sent off my UCAS form. i am very excited.
That is great that you are excited about your course. I am a student currently at Staffordshire university and am really enjoying my time here. I am on a different course but i lived with someone on Policing and Investigation last year and she really enjoyed it. Aside from the course itself, Staffordshire University has a wonderful sense of community and is a great place to be in my experience. If you have any questions please just let me know

Glad to hear to want to come to Staffs too. It really is an amazing place to learn. I personally went for the Clarice Cliff accommodation which is the en-suite accommodation because I wanted my own bathroom. I really enjoyed my time there. However I also know a lot of people who enjoyed both the non en-suit halls and the houses. I would say it depends on what you value most and what kind of feel you want. Clarice Cliff is flats of 4-6 each with their own bedroom and en-suite and a shared kitchen, Leek road halls are 12-13 person corridors which share a bathroom which has 3 toilet cubicles and 2 or 3 shower cubicles ( I can't quite remember, sorry) and also shares a kitchen but still everyone has their own bedroom. Then the houses I think are shared between 4-6 and share a bathroom and kitchen with a bedroom each as before. The best way to get a feel for what you like best is an open day as you can take a tour round all 3. I would encourage you to double check all my information on the staffs accommodation page just to make sure. Hope this has helped a little bit. Any other questions or more specifics about the accommodation, particularly the en-suite as that is the one I have experience with but I'll try to answer anything.

I have been to an open day and the only ones I likes were the halls and houses. Just wasn't sure which would be best. I've done all my research too not sure what else there is left to research😂 Just got to wait now, trying to see if I can find someone in the same boat as me

What's the diversity like at Staffordshire? I went to an open day but I didn't feel as though there was much diversity so I was wondering if on the courses it was different

What kind of diversity are you thinking of? I'll try to include a few but if you meant something different let me know. First if you mean diversity of the students, Staffs has students from all walks of life which is one of the reasons that I picked it because it it cater for young students, mature students, students from different ethnicities, countries, and all types of backgrounds or disabilities. In terms of the courses themselves, I can only speak for certain from the experiences of my course but Staffs tries to make their courses as interesting and diverse as possible. There are certain things they have to include but I have lectures, seminars, presentations, practice demonstrations, group work, individual work and many different types of assignments. It is unlikely that any two days at uni will be exactly the same. In terms of things to do outside lectures there is over 90 clubs and societies each of which bring a like-minded group of people together and there are also nightsout which are sometimes themed. Let me know if there is anything else you want to know or if I didn't quite cover what you wanted and I'll be happy to find out the answer for you.

Been looking to do Games Art here, I got a conditional offer with the ability to turn it into an unconditional offer if I made it my main choice. I was wondering how common that is?

I love the look of the course here and will go to the next open day, only other options at the moment would be derby and cardiff.
