There are quite a few decent flats for sale in Southampton. I've seen several people looking at buying.

I'd definitely contemplate that, but I have no idea where abouts we'll be based. Does anyone know where the majority of non-placement teaching occurs?

Are you a BM4 or BM5 candidate?
Let's just say I've done it once and it's not an experience I would like to repeat at 23
Understandable. I’m BM5, and I was only asking because Idrk what halls are like + I’m international so I’m just super anxious about moving into halls haha

It’ll be at high field campus or Southampton general
Hospital portswood is a good area to live for both of these

I think the clinical base for BM4 is in Winchester and Basingstoke in later years.. teaching mostly at highfield.

That's fair enough- in my experience halls was a good experience and as a first year it is the best place to be. I wouldn't be too anxious, everyone will be feeling the same. Good luck

On my confirmation email (received at 18:03 today) it said they anticipate the faculty induction will be during Fresher’s Week (week commencing 20th September) but that they’ll give us more detailed dates and times closer to the start of term.
So the course itself will probably start either that week or the following week (27th September) 😊

Does anyone have access to a course overview in calendar format for either BM4 (preferably) or BM5? Here's an example of what I'm looking for from another uni:
https://www.gla.ac.uk/media/Media_714917_smxx.pdf
I can't find this anywhere online for Southampton but I was wondering if anyone has found it or if any current students have it. It doesn't need to be for next year specifically, I just would love a general overview of when would we do what. My main question is what time of the year is the 8 week elective in year 5? I'm also wondering if BM4 students have different term dates to BM5 students.
Thanks in advance for your help!

This is something that really baffles me about TSR. I’m sure ecolier could shed some light on it - I’ve been wanting to make some sort of group for offer holders (on f*****ok or something) but I couldn’t handle the heat of one of those “guys I’m so disappointed” messages.
As much as I trust that you guys are all adults, we can't have one rule for your group and another rule for e.g. the undergrads.

Plus, if you are allowed one - then who knows who's going to be joining. We can't verify who makes them and who joins them?

Finally, it's a TSR rule and it's not mine. Feel free to raise it at https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/for...lay.php?f=1215 to the actual people running the forums.

Does anyone know if it’s possible to defer on the BM4 course? Feels very odd even asking this when I worked so hard to get in but now without the stress looming over me a gap year post COVID has a real appeal... I was kind of expecting 4 rejections and had lots of stuff planned out lol.

Anyone looking at private hall studios? I am tempted as I like my privacy and not a big drinker but am worried about isolating myself and never leaving one room ? If anyone has any experience with this it would be much appreciated

Idk which programme you're on but if it's any consolation I'm not a big drinker either (I'm in my final year of undergrad and got a place on BM4) but in my experience people don't care - if they do then they aren't worth spending time with anyway. At university people (sometimes) start to act like adults and therefore aren't so shallow as to have a go at you for not wanting to drink. Be yourself and stick to your guns and you'll end up with the right people!
