Hello, current 2nd year med student here. Next year my hospital base is going to be Salford Royal and therefore it seems to me that it might be sensible to cut down on commuting time by living in Salford rather than Fallowfield. However I don't know if this is something that people really do and I am feeling like I might need to start to think about who I want to live with next year - which is proving difficult with so much of the teaching being done online. I was wondering if any Manchester students in clinical years might be able to shine a light about where people tend to live/ how they get there. Should I just stay with my current housemates next year and do the longer commute? And if so, how do people tend to get to Salford? Are there good options for parking?
Also, where is the majority of the teaching done? Is it at Salford Royal itself with placements elsewhere or is it pretty spread out?
Thank you in advance! Sorry if it seems early I just feel a bit lost with it all.
