so... I have now got a place at Strathclyde to do my PGDE starting this year. However, I do not fancy the idea of moving back in with my parents (its commutable but not convenient) - so am wondering where to look for affordable accommodation while I am studying. Also I want my placements to be more urban than rural if possible (i dont have a car) so I heard they try to take your travel time into account when allocating them. If I live in Central Glasgow maybe the chance of being sent to South Ayrshire or something will be less... I know there are halls, and while I LOVED them in my undergrad 1st year, I think I may be somewhat irritated by their behaviour when I have placements and they wanna party till 4am! Also, we are sort of different to most postgrads too so I am not sure I would fit in to the reserved postgrad halls either...so what to do? ^^ So...is there a good place to look for PGDE student shares, or studios or such likes? My friend did hers in London and she met some really good people to move in with - but that is London - Glasgow is a little smaller... Any advice welcome!
