    I’ll be studying Psychology with sociology, what about you? And oh I didn’t know that, do you know what that means for students who applied for 2018/2019 entry?

    I’ll be studying radiotherapy. It basically means that if we apply for University Locks we have to be out of the room by the 15th of June. Which is a bit of a pain because most courses don’t end until July. If you follow this link http://www.bcu.ac.uk/student-info/accommodation/faqs and go to Q7 and click on residence fees it basically explains the dates/prices for all the accommodation

    Hi, I’m studying nursing, and to get the longer let, I think the best one for health students is Belgrave View. It’s a bit annoying because where we need longer in the summer we have to get a 51 week let to cover us... but I wont be there all that time e.g coming home at christmas and easter☹️

    I think it’s best to contact BCU to find out the exact dates for your course. But I think illustration should be fine with Uni Locks as long as there isn’t placement over the summer 🤗

    Yeah Belgrave View is really the best option, I went to see it at the open day and really didnt like it and the only other accommodations are near the city campus😕. Do you know what accommodation you’re going to pick?

    I looked it up and it’s a minimum of 40 weeks, It says “if the first year of your course exceeds 40 weeks we can extend your contract accordingly” so you still may able to apply for University Locks.
