Congrats on your offers guys! If you have any questions about first year/the course me and a-aron will be happy to answer
Hiya! I'm in my final year of uni and just got an offer - do you know what the offer made to people in my position has been in previous years? (Grad students on 5 year course who applied in final year)

All of my lectures are online now (I think that's the way forward as it saves a lot of time)-even if they are in-person they will be recorded so you can watch it at home.
Small group teaching sessions are online right now-they may be face-to-face (my hopeful guess) from September if the vaccines work (which is the case).
It depends on how tired you may feel after driving/commuting, but it's definitely doable. Saves a lot of money as well!
this has been really helpful, thank you ! there's a lot to think about
do you think I'd be missing out on the 'uni experience' by not moving out? Ik at the moment with the pandemic it's been a lot of home learning but as you said I'm hoping things kind of go back to normal and I am hoping to enjoy the social side of uni in September

You don't have to be in halls to have a good social life. In a normal year, with whole cohort lectures you get to meet sooo many people anyway-and you also have people in your M group whom you can be friends with.
Also with halls, the experience depends on how good/bad your flatmates are.

Thank you so much! what is the best accommodation to apply to for medicine (like a good distance from the medical school but also social) thanks!!
Accommodation on The Vale is great, very social and lots of outdoor space. It's 20-30 min walk from the Med School so perfectly doable.

hi, i have a question, if anyone can help
on the website it says, "For applicants who attend a contextual school (see: 'Use of Contextual Data'), the offer is AAB".
so am i correct in saying everyone who has a school on the list will get an AAB offer, just because i've seen other post above saying they look at a combo of things as mohussain said.

Nah to be honest a lot of people actually live at home! It's far cheaper for one, and (if things go back to normal) with the amount of time you spend at med school with everyone else, it's nice to have somewhere to retreat to. You pretty much spend all day with your coursemates so you don't miss out much, and there's always tons of activities and socities running

@A_J_B mentioned in another post as well some top places! Alternatively, the vale is so big that there are usually tons of medics living there anyway, so it's really easy finding people to hang-out with/walk-home with. The only down-side is that the Vale is a 20-30 minute walk, but a lot of the social events do tend to be centred around the Vale i.e. Vale Fireworks (which btw are awesome and definitely worth going to!)

I am considering to live outside of campus. Which area is cheaper? I am currently looking at Sally Oak. I am looking for a studio or 1 bedroom.

May I know how much does the train ticket cost? What's the train frequency like?

In london, there is a different fare between tube and train. I am unsure whether is University or Sally Oak station consider part of Birmingham city train network.

I tried logging in to sort the accommodation but the email with the url doesn’t come through. Is it because it needs to update on track first before we can access it?
