Hi saw you have already had an interview for Sheffield i've got one next week and i was just wondering what type of things they wanted you to do xxx
Hey, its nearly there. My personal statement is done, but everytime I read it I change bits!
It will be sent off by Sunday, (I hope!!)
Did you send off your Manchester questionnaire? Any other unis got back to you yet?
Major stress, keep thinking I am not good enough xxx
What are your predicted grades?
Really don't know what to do, I am predicted AAA and achieved ABB last year but my school are really encouraging me to put an insurance down when I really don't like any of them.
I am quite confident I can get ABB next year but arghhh really stressing!!!!!!!!!!!
I am having real trouble deciding a back up. Struggling between Birmingham City, Leeds Met and MMU. I see on the forum you were having the same problem.
I was just wondering what you ended up putting down and why?
Thank you so much for you help xxx
We don't have as many essays as my other housemates who are on other courses and the course is 100% coursework, so while we have small tests, they're not massive university exams which last for hours at a time and the tests are done throughout the year during each subject block so you don't have to try and remember it all at the end of the year.
It is hard when you see everyone else finishing for the summer (like now) and you've still got weeks left but they tend to put placements just before summer so it doesn't really feel like you're at university.
I hope that helps I'd highly recommend UEA, I helped at an interview day and a lot of people seemed to have picked other places as their first choice and I couldn't work out why!
The way the course is structured means that we have our PBL session first thing on a Monday morning and then all our lectures for the week are based around things to do with the client we've been shown in our PBL 'trigger' and then we do work for PBL during the week and come back on Friday where we put everything we've learnt together and talk about it in relation to the client we were given which helps us round it all up and associate theory with practice. We learn so much each week doing this and every week builds on what we've already learnt so we use knowledge we've already got and learn new stuff so by the end of the year you feel like you've learned loads (and you have)!
I've found the course to be a good pace, all the lecturers are great, as is the course director (who also lectures), our placements are great (I'm currently on 4 week school placement and it's so fun) and we get a lot of support.
Hi Julie! I think a few other places are three years and we do at least 6 weeks more a year than people on 4 year courses as we do longer terms so that's an extra 18 weeks over 3 years which in total is just 12 weeks short of a 4 year course anyway Any speech therapy course is intense but so far it definitely doesn't feel like it's too crammed in, in fact having come from a full-time job I still feel like I have too much free time! It's important to remember that all of the courses are accredited by the RCSLT so regardless of how long or short they are or how they are structured they all have to adhere to regulations and cover all the same stuff but if you can do it in 3 years instead of 4 then that's a bonus as far as I'm concerned!
We tend to do about 15 hours a week in lectures/pbl/practical sessions which in first year means that we have 5 hours on Mondays, 2/3 hours on Wednesday mornings, 5 hours on Thursdays and 1/2 hours on Friday morning. TBC..
Hi Thanks for posting! I know we seem rare!? Might be a good thing? Where else are you thinking of? I got some through my health and social care GCSE at a school and retirement home, but hoping to get some specialised speech and language therapy experience after my AS exams What about you? What subjects are you taking at the moment?
I was searching through the language forum where I saw that you posted that you were learning Serbian!
I think that's great as I am also!
May I ask why you are learning it? Maybe we could help each other?
Heyy I saw your post on my question about getting work experience for a SLT course and I thought I'd come and say hi
And if you don't mind me asking, how did you get all that work experience? Did you just call up and ask or is there some weird kind of application process I should be aware of? :P
