My son is doing this course too.

I have contacted the University of Bournemouth accommodation dept and they have sent a list of contacts for the various halls of residence. They said that they may rent out rooms. I was going to take a look at a map to see which is closest and try and book him a room there.

Honestly thank you so much, you’re a lifesaver. I was looking at Air B&Bs (there’s quite a few that are close) but even the cheapest seemed rather pricy. Will get contacting! Cheers again :biggrin:

Hey! Congratulations to your son for getting a place! I don’t know if you’re asking about the accommodation (I stayed in an Air BnB nearby; most people did the same or had a hotel room) or the experience itself, but if you mean the work experience then I can say that it was amazing! Intimidating as anything to start with, but they encourage creativity and a collaborative mindset and the challenge is fun rather than scary.
