Thought I’d start a group where offer holders could get to know each other and chat about anything Swansea GEM related for the cohort 2019-2023!

Unless that first week is the induction week itself. And yes very long terms with GEM! Have a restful summer in preparation!

Hello again,
now that the UCAS offer reply deadline is fast approaching I'm guessing some of you may be choosing Swansea as your firm choice. If so, where are you thinking of applying for accommodation?

I don't know whether most students seek out private housing or halls of residence, but I might go with Singleton Park's accommodation - still unsure though...

Almost every medic will go for private housing. There's usually just one or two who decide to go for halls (with the undergrads :eek:). The Uni accommodation is also considerably more expensive than anything private, especially for what you get. I wouldn't recommend it!

On your meet & greet day, you will be told about how medics do accommodation. You may also get a tour and will be able o find likeminded people if you're looking to share. Once your facebook page is set up by medsoc, properties from other medics etc... will be advertised there. You can also start searching now on places like spareroom, SAS lettings, etc...

Don't worry, there's plenty of time. Feel free to message if you wanna know more

Yeah, rest up well. It won't end once it begins. And be prepared for medsoc olympics in your first week

Hi, sorry to jump on this but how did you guys receive your offers? I heard Swansea calls you personally as well as telling you via UCAS, is that true? I’m applying this year for 2020 entry

Hi! Yes we received offers via phone call and then UCAS should be updated. Good luck with your application!

I got my offer by phone this morning out of the blue and was also wondering when the offer holder day is...?

You'll be on Singleton Campus all year. Close by, most students tend to congregate in Sketty, Brynmill and Uplands. Rent is from £200-400 per month. These are 5-10 mins walk from uni. Bit further out, you have townhill and Cockett (personally I'd avoid townhill and mayhill, it's a bit rough). If you have a big budget, You can live in Mumbles or Marina - it's a distance from uni, rent is around £350+ if sharing, and they're essentially the best areas.

I'd say always view before committing to anything. There's still plenty of time, don't worry too much!

Thank you for the response !
Following up on that would I be likely to have need of a car during the first year in regards to the course?
Also has anyone else who has been made an offer from the waiting list had the ucas confirmation come through yet?
