Hi,
I'll be starting at Sheffield in September. I'll be moving to the area from Cheshire. Any hints on places to live/avoid would be much appreciated!
Have you guys had your DBS back yet?

I don't know Sheffield at all.....I will be commuting from near Leeds. Hopefully someone can give you some tips!

I've sent my paperwork off but haven't received anything back yet

Yeah I've not recieved anything either. I expect they'll have waited until they have a batch before they sent them off. Can't wait to get more info though! Looking forward to meeting you all and starting the course!
It might be worth setting up a facebook group. I will be spending my weekends in Sheffield towards the end of the summer looking for places to live so I'd be up for arranging a social before the course starts?

Hello, I'll be joining you at Sheffield :D

I haven't received anything either, I did ask back in March and I think they said they send a starter pack at the end of June (though they could have said July... I was still in shock at the time :lol: ).

Fortunately for me, I already live in Sheffield. However, I've only been in Sheffield for a few months and so I don't have any wise tips to give in relation to housing.

I have a rather busy summer ahead, but might be able to find some time towards the end of August if people did want a social :)

Hey everyone,

I'll be joining you too! So so happy :)
It would be great to get together at some point before the course starts. I live in Derby so am planning to go up for a few visits to Sheffield in the next couple of months. Has there been any movement on starting a Facebook group or shall I do the honours? :)

Hey all!

I'll be starting at Sheffield too. How exciting. Looking forward to meeting everybody. I live in Sheffield so happy to tell people areas that are nice and to avoid (in my opinion!). If anyone wants to PM me, I can suggest some areas..don't want to offend anyone by publicly saying to avoid places and then someone lives there!! :oops:

See you all in Sept (or before!)

Lola

Hey everyone!

I'll be joining you all at Sheffield too - very excited! I currently work in Sheffield but live in Leeds and planning to move to Sheffield before the course starts. I know Sheffield relatively well but not don't know much about where is best to live. I'm looking in Crookes at the moment which I have been told is quite a studenty area and is close to uni which will be handy.

Looking forwards to meeting you all! A facebook page sounds like a great idea.

Lucy :D

A Facebook group does sound like a good plan; and it would be great to meet up beforehand!

Really looking forward to meeting everyone

I don't think anyone has started a facebook group yet as far as I'm aware. So yes please Frankiecat if you don't mind doing the honours!
Cheers!
