Hi clinpsymember,

Congrats on making your decision.

I've also accepted my Sheffield place. I was hoping someone would start one of these threads :D

I'm Already living in Sheffield (P.S. Its a great city to live in) so happy to answer any questions about living in Sheffield.

Ooh exciting, congratulations!
Thank you so much, any advice on which areas to live in and when to start looking would be super helpful as I've only been in Sheffield once for the interview! It also seems like a car is necessary, do you think this is the case?

Hi Chris, can't wait to start either!
Completely agree that everyone seemed so nice at the interview, got a really good feel from it!
By the way, a few courses seem to be setting up Facebook groups to make it easier to chat before the course, should I set up one for Sheffield?

Great, I'll set it up! I think I just need the email address you've connected to Facebook with from one more person in order to set it up. So if one of you wouldn't mind PM-ing me it, I can do it :)

Hi BlueHy,

Congratulations on surviving the process. Are you moving far to Sheffield?

Thanks! Congratulations to you all as well :wink:

I'm moving from Lincoln area, so not too far... but I've recently moved down from Scotland, where I've been for the past year! I'll join the Facebook group today :)

I see you're already living in Sheffield, graduateak.... I may have some questions about the best places to live nearer the time! Did you interview on Tuesday PM?

Just saw this, the interviews seem like ages ago now! I’ll be starting the Sheffield course in September, already living just outside the city so also happy to offer any advice on the area
