You could do what we did and get in the middle – some nice villages around Ilkeston.
Commuting from Nottingham to Derby will be a pain, btw – the medical school is the opposite side of Derby to Nottingham. Are you going to spend more of your time studying or clubbing? Better to commute a long way every day to study, or commute once a week to go out on the razz?
And the riding from your doorstep is better in Derby.Posted 8 years ago
yeah looks like derby is going to win out on logistics alone. more local riding is a definite bonus plus we just had a look at flat rent prices, wayyyy! much cheaper than madrid 🙂
no car (at the mo) so maybe in time a village option may present itself but at least for the 18 months ill be in derby i think we´ll live there. going to go for a trip in may to have a look.
med school is attached to new city hospital if anyone has area recommendationsPosted 8 years agosootyandjimMember
I thnk Nottingham might have a high gun crime rate,
Or it could be that the London-centric media jumped on a few shootings that happened in a small period of time and used their magical powers in an attempt to fool the guliable into thinking somewhere outside of the festering anal sore that is London is just as bad in order to divert negative attention away from said anal sore (said by an ex-Londoner)?
The ‘Shottingham’ tag is massively over-played. As I said before, I live a sort walk from one of the ‘dodgy’ areas of Nottingham yet my car and home contents insurance fell dramatically after moving up here from a leafy rural village in Hampshire.
Someone already touched on the main driver behind the bad press (the Gunn family), more specifically Colin Gunn who ordered the parents of an informant to be killed outside their home, miles away in Lincolnshire (at Trusthorpe near Mablethorpe, oddly not also considered a terrifyingly violent place even with a double killing in the area). Colin Gunn is in prison and the rest just keep their heads down.Posted 8 years agojoemarshallMember

I wouldn’t rent a flat unless you really love apartments for their own sake – if it’s anything like Nottingham, 2 or 3 bed houses just a bit outside the centre are cheaper than flats in the centre, and buses / biking / walking into town is easy enough. Plus a lot of the modern flats are in ghost-town type blocks with only a few people living in them, the rest being failed buy to lets.

I'll speak to my wife this evening. She decided not to do medicine at Nottingham because of the ball ache Nott/Derby thing.
Forget which is the best place to get p!ssed in, although medics do get hammered they tend to spend alot of time studying or working, and I'd want to be nearer where I work.
Having said that your shafted anyhow from now on you will be posted to the most inconveniant place to where you live!
Can you get in touch with any existing students they will give you a much better idea of where is best to live.Posted 7 years ago
Perhaps I should clarify:
I am on the Nottingham med course and I live in Derby
This thread was resurrected by someone else but I appreciate the replies, ta muchly 🙂
And doing the Nottingham course isn't anymore of a ballache than other places really, def not as much as say London. We're in Derby for first 18 months then based in Nottingham for clinical work but as you mention Dunc placements means it doesn't always matter where you live.
If anyone Derby/Nottingham/around here based fancies a pedal let me know, end of my 'holidays' now but finish 1st year at end of June.Posted 7 years ago
