For Imperial, after results day - you don't need to firm early to get accom AFAIK.
In terms of being close to SK but not paying through the nose, Wilson, Pembridge (where I am!) and Parsons are good options? Would also bear in mind that at least this year 80%+ of our on campus time has been at Charing Cross Hospital where the Dissection Rooms and clinical skills labs are, and on placement which can be anywhere in West London.
Thanks so much for the info!

Just a reminder guys that external groupchats aren't allowed on TSR - we don't know who makes and joins them so it's for your safety. You can use this thread to chat.
I know ICSMSU made an official one last year but that will be advertised to you via Imperial so you know it's legit.

What type of iPad is it, if you don't mind me asking? I was actually just thinking of getting an iPad myself, but if Imperial gives one to medical students then I don't need to spend that money anymore :P

Mine was during COVID so unlikely to be representative :lol: AnnaBananana will know what it's usually like.

Essentially for the first 2 weeks you have introductory lectures explaining what the course is like and how it's structured which are quite chill, so except at the weekend there's uni stuff to go to. You have an occupational health appointment then as well and collect your iPad and ID card.
Most of the actual "Fresher's Fortnight" is organised by ICSU and ICSMSU (so you can go to both the medic's events and the Imperial events) and then clubs and socs will organise their own things too, usually pub nights. There's a societies fair for ICSU and ICSM which is usually where you find out what socs are doing, get on mailing lists etc. Ours were online and pretty terrible. The events are fairly typicaly uni things: a quiz, 'speed friending', a RAG treasure hunt, sport taster sessions, volunteering training sessions etc. Have a look at: https://www.icsmsu.com/freshers-space/ for way much more info on what Freshers 2020 was like

Last year we were sent the application forms in like...April for a 30th June deadline - I wouldn't stress about it. The deadline then got extended due to COVID anyway.

Yes. You’re also not guaranteed one of your choices, so you might get allocated something else too.
