    Do CMT give you a part payment of wages before you go to college?
    Some companies used to do that before you started so that you had some cash in the bank, effectively it was 'free money' as you didn't have to do anything to earn it.

        I'm starting at STC in January 2001 with Clyde Marine Training. I'm a little concerned about the accommodation costs for the 1st month, as the STC website states that Dr W's Halls 'License Fee' (rent etc) must be paid 4-weekly in advance.

        HELP! How did you all manage?
        I recommend using your time machine to obtain the lottery numbers for next week and pay for it that way...

        new vocabulary.' - James Davis Nicoll

          Ha Ha, very funny. But that leads to another question: DeLorean DMC-12 or Type 102 TARDIS?

              my advice - try to get out of halls as soon as, save money by renting a place locally

              I don't smoke, but I probably get by on less than ?50 a week, lots of drinking in the common room, keeping myself topped up on a night out.

              Nights out in Newcastle not included.

                I disagree I would stay in the halls during phase 1..... Meh, its ?110 a week, but it means u dont have to cook, no travel costs and your only 2 min walk from your classes....... and you won't really save THAT much in your own place, alot of the guys in my class have said it'll cost them MORE to move out but they are doing it for the "freedom"

                  It's a requirement to stay in halls for phase one-yes there are exceptions, but they are rare and to be honest-they're missing out.
                  Prepare by saving at least 600 quid for beer tokens whilst you meet people for the first time and have the only period during your cadetship where you can go out, get drunk and enjoy yourself. After that, it's work, work and more work. Being close to class is great, especially with a hangover (not that I ever put myself in that position......) and at the end of the day, it's part of the lifestyle.

                  I will look back at living in Warsash with great fondness in years to come, and everybody should experience the same.

                  Anyway, time for another tinny before maths!!!! ;O)

                    Your cadetship is obviously a lot different to what mine was like!
                    South Shields mafia:
                    Mon-Fri 9-5 in the classroom with very few 'out of hours' projects to do.
                    Out: Monday (Newcastle student night), Wednesday(Dance night at the R&B club), Thursday (7 quid entry and free drink all night), Friday (?1 a drink all night), Saturday abbo at the 'Gentlemans club' in Whitley Bay with the evening in the 'toon', Sunday being SUPER SUNDAY involving pub rugby 7's/football and pints thereafter.
                    That plus the usual diversion of chasing birds/seeing the girlfriend etc and weekday liquid lunches.
                    Bloody expensive of course but so many happy memories. As cadets we had the legacy of our forebears to look up to, and we did! The lecturers were proud, no doubt triggering memories of their own misspent youth!

                            Proper name was 'The Brunswick', noted for having dancers in cages, so I'm told that is, would never have set foot in the place...
