2013-2014 Durham applicants?


What's a PCDL when it's at home? And why is it risky? :D

That plan does sound like it makes more sense. I haven't really spoken to anyone about living costs in Durham but from what I can tell it shouldn't be expensive. Must remember to check out where the supermarkets are...

On another note I phoned the admissions office yesterday to find out how long it should take between applying for colleges/accommodation and finding out which one we got. So I should be finding out around the last week of April. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for St Chad's!


The PCDL is the Professional and Career Development Loan - potentially allowing you to borrow up to £10k for a Masters. It's a bit risky in that one month after you finish your course you will start being charged interest on the loan (not a huge amount though) so you'll have to be confident to find a job after the course finishes - although working just one or two days a week will probably be fine because you can arrange to pay the loan back over a 5 year period.

After a lot of to and fro-ing (bit of a long story), I am set on doing LLM THIS September. It's gonna be tight financially but I can't wait.
I've just paid the deposit for accommodation. I am hoping to get a room at either Hallgarth Street or Trinity Hall (cheapest options).
I apologise karahazel - I don't check LLM Guide much - do you have a profile on The Student Room? If not, you should - it's a lot better and loads of people are on it. I'm part of thread discussion concerning postgraduate studies (colleges, courses, accommodation etc) at Durham starting this Sept.
Get involved! :)

Ah okay, I'll look into that, thanks!

I didn't have a profile on the Student Room because I'd never heard of it - I just created one and I added you as a contact (at least I'm operating on the assumption you have the same username on that site!).

If you've paid the deposit for accommodation does that mean you know what college you got? So they give you a place at a college and then tell you the accommodation they'll offer you separately?

I've accepted you on TSR and left you a message there :)
