    I've applied for adult nursing March intake at Uclan, Salford and Manchester Met and university of Manchester and Cumbria for September. Graduated from Sheffield Hallam last year after studying BSc Hons in public health nutrition so feeling quite nervous about doing another degree! I wonder how long it will be until we hear back considering we're not waiting on grades and we've got the applications in early?! I'm hoping for a place at Uclan also as I have moved back home to Blackburn

    Oh wow that's amazing! All those universities sound ace too. Apparently, we will get an answer before Christmas. If we are offered an interview it will be mid October onwards and it takes 2 weeks after interview to be offered a place! :-) fingers crossed! How old are you? :-)

    I know it's all pretty scary now I have finally submitted my application, I need to pluck up the courage to tell work I've applied to go back to university but I'm terrified I won't get any interviews and make a fool of myself!

    I'll be turning 23 in December so will be 26 when I finally graduate again! How about yourself?

    How did you find out the information on when the interviews will be? Mid October is so close!

    Has anyone found any answers around whether we are eligible for student finance? I know the general rule is that because we have completed our previous degree we are not eligible for further maintenance loans but a few people have said we should be because nursing is an exception but I'm not sure?

    That's correct! Nursing is an exception so we get funding as usual and an nhs bursary

    Yep March intake of adult nursing
    I called SF to check, and it's roughly £2300 non means tested as nursing is an "exception" course. I've had to do a lot of number crunching my partner only has an average income, we have a 17 month old child and I think we're just above the threshold for dependants / childcare allowance. It's going to be a tight few years!
    Went to the UCLan Open Day this morning and listened to the nursing talk, was interesting to hear the answers to questions at the end and a bit about the interview process too. I didn't know they do a literacy and numeracy assessment along with a bit about how much you know about nursing on a separate day, then if you are successful they invite you to an interview at a later date.
    How much healthcare experience do you have?
