Well here's the thing..I have applied for Strathclyde University as my firm choice, however it is a conditional offer. My insurence choice is at Heriot Watt University, and this is an unconditional offer.

Now this is where I am confused..what is the next stage when it comes to accomodation? Do I apply for both Strathclyde & Heriot Watt? If so, how do I go about doing this? blink.gif

Any guidence would be much appreciated..I'm totally lost!

Well for Aberdeen Uni, I had to wait til I had a firm acceptance letter til I applied for accomodation. I don't know if its the same for Strathclyde.

I'm in a similar situation, conditional firm for Strathclyde and conditional insurance for HW.

I haven't got accommodation applications for either yet, though Strathclyde said I would get one in May (still waiting). I intend to apply for both, though until you have definately got a place they cannot confirm it.

I'm also in a similar situation, except I have applied for accomodation at both. Well, I've applied to my firm and told my insurance what I'm looking for. From what I gather, the firm has a place set aside for me, but nothing is confirmed until I meet my offer. My insurance haven't set aside anything, but if I'm going there then they'll find something based on my preferences for me come August. I'd imagine something similar will come through sooner or later, although I'm not sure how it will vary in the when and how from uni to uni.

I ended up emailing Strathclyde - and they told me that they are sending out applications at the end of this month/beginning of next month for all students who live 25 miles away or something.

As for Heriot Watt..well I have just emailed them asking what is going on, so I'm sure I will know soon tongue.gif

Strange how I really won't know which Uni or even City I will be living in for the next 4/5 years until August..then in a matter of weeks I move..eeek!!

Same here. Well, I know it will be Glasgow or Edinburgh. I desperately hope it is Glasgow.

I also e-mailed Strathclyde and was told the same thing. Any chance you could post what HW say when they get back to you? Saves me e-mailing them too. Cheers.

Basically, Heriot-Watt said, that they do not offer us accomodation until we find out our results in August, and if we end up taking our Insurence choice (i.e Heriot Watt), then they will send us information asap.

Haha, felt like they were a bit miffed about me choosing Heriot Watt as my Insurence choice laugh.gif

Ah well, not so bothered now since AH Physics went better than I expected so I'll concentrate on Strathclyde.

Thanks for that.

I sorted out my accomodation. Thankfully, I gained what I needed for Strathclyde University - moving away a week Wednesday! Eeek! Feel as though it has all happened so quickly.

Anyways, I'm moving to the James Young Halls. Very exciting indeed. =)
