Does anyone know if we need to upload AS level certificates or will A level ones just be fine?
I think you need to upload all qualifications listed on your ucas

It was mainly about all the halls choices which are all on the uni website. DRA/Fife Park halls specifically cover the full term time for the course (till June as opposed to May). The finance talk info was also on the webpage and you could email the admin if you had specific Q's

Did anyone understand the second year accommodation reimbursement discussion? It sounded to me like it made no sense!

I understood that all placement accommodation would be reimbursed for 2nd year but for 3rd year they would only reimburse you if the accommodation fees went over a specific amount- the excess they would then cover (I may be wrong!). I also found it confusing, surely they will provide clear information about it when needed.

Ah! I was convinced they said that in third year the amount under £400 would be reimbursed if the total was over £400 but you had to pay the entire cost if it was under that, which was just weird! Your explanation makes more sense, and we obviously don't need to worry about it yet Thanks!

That was how I interpreted it too which just seems unfair. But I plan on not thinking about it too much until we have to haha!

Yh I think that's right for fees> 400, they provide up to 400. Fees<400, you fund yourself. Yup really odd but, luckily we don't have to worry about it now
