    I'm thinking of working abroad next summer at a camp in Canada. I am planning to apply for a nursing course to start next September, so won't get back from camp until mid-August. If I can apply for accommodation online, do universities usually send you a load of stuff in the post that you have to sign and return by a specific date? I would rather not have all my mail forwarded to me, if I get back to the UK in August do I have enough time left to secure a place to live?

    It depends on the University how they go about doing things. There will be a contract you have to accept, and a date by which you have to do it, but some places do it all online (so you could make the arrangements from Canada). If your uni do use paper contracts, contact them and ask how they deal with people who are abroad at the time contracts are issued. It's not an uncommon situation, so they're likely to have ideas on how to handle it.

    If your parents are at home, they can answer mail for you. Email the university and let them know that all correspondance will be going through your parents. I was away from home for the whole of last summer, and all it meant was my mum had to send off any money and letters the uni needed.
