Thank you so much, very appreciated!
Hi lads, I was wondering if it's worth travelling to the University or staying in an accommodation as I live in London. The travel duration is around 2hr 30mins. I really never went to much lectures during my Bachelors at another University but maybe this University is different in terms of attendance and being strict. Let me know what do you guys think?

Imma be real I didn’t go to lectures much too, but I think previous yrs had a lot of leeway because of covid and online lectures. I do think lectures will be available online, but I think it will be expected for us to be there in person. Especially for the Software Workshop module. Plus I think you’ll gain more from CS if you are there in person, however they probably will make reasonable adjustments for people who are far away like you. So do whatever is best for you and what you think is necessary for your learning. Perhaps when we recieve our timetables you can email the lecturers in advance to get concrete advice on what is required of each module.

Guys who are definitely coming to do the conversion masters in Sept at UOB I finally created a slack for us. Hopefully it can be a place to give us updates of our degree details (timetables/course details), working together on assignments, ask questions we don’t want to ask the professors lols and all round just a supportive place for those that want to do well because a first is a must!

Do you require any specific qualifications? I have a First Class Honours In Business Management. Do they ask for any other qualifications?
