Unipol hosted a House Hunting Day at NSCD on Saturday 1st June with the assistance of the NSCD Admissions team; we hope that those who were able to attend found the day useful.

Students who could not attend the House Hunting Day may wish to view Unipol’s presentation House Hunting 2019 NSCD Shared.

It is important to understand that you should make your own arrangements to secure a property and that you have access to assistance with house hunting via Unipol who are present on the New Starters Facebook group that you have all been invited to.
