hello everyone ! long time lurker , first time posting , tsr was giving me a bit of trouble , not authorizing me to post etc .. i had a couple of questions for people whove been at oxford awhile (since im coming there for my masters in september and don't know too much about living there) ..
So , because i didnt put in a college preference i got St.Hilda's and thats fine , but my dept is on banbury road and the maps tell me thats quite far. is that a big issue? how much time do grad students spend in the dept vs in college anyway ? and is it cheaper/more convenient to live on college property ? I was pretty sure i would chose living in college accommodation until i read my accommodation form carefully and it said from this year on , you must pay full time fees , during terms and vacations. boo. i'm an international student so i will be coming home in the holidays..what do you guys think about staying privately vs college ? oh also , is it possible to hold a part time job whilst studying ? I'm a yoga enthusiast and soon to be certified instructor , i was wondering if that would be of any use getting me a job in oxford. Ok , thats alot of questions ! will be glad if anyone has anything to say !
