What's on the Menu?

The start of the new academic year is fast approaching. On Sunday 24th September, if you’re one of our residential first year students, you’ll be moving into your new home. It’s going to be a busy day, filled with emotions and excitement. With so much to do, new people to meet and a new city to explore, finding time to cook or even get to the shops to buy food could easily fall to the bottom of your ‘to-do list’. Don’t worry though, we have you covered – not only for moving in day, but the whole academic year. Read our eating on campus guide below to find out what’s on offer.

UCAS - Writing Your Personal Statement

Your UCAS personal statement is a chance to show universities and colleges why you want to study the course and why you’d make a great student. UCAS put a strict 4,000 character limit on your statement, which means they are not looking for a lengthy essay but a short outline of your personal attributes, skills and reasons for wanting to study at university.

You should start drafting your statement early. It might take a while to make sure it covers everything you want to say and you should allow plenty of time to check it through with teachers, advisers or family.
