    It was really good- there were a few taster sessions which reminded me why I wanted to do the course! I got a bit frustrated at the beginning with 'why you should choose MMU' but once we actually got down to it it was great
    Cool, did anything specific stand out as good or bad?

    Can't wait to start now, really looking forward to it.

    I did try this initially at first as felt the tutors may be able to understand my unfortunate position but recognise my exp and want to do the degree but found I was getting through to people at say admission central who weren't interested and would just explain they were full... After this I emailed all UNis, explaining my situation etc with the hope it may get to the right person .. I had two useful replies ( Cardiff and Manc ) others didn't reply and the rest were again a person at admissions...

    I agree with what ur saying tho ucas doesn allow for 'real person ' to shine thru. what u think ? Ring all again ? After ppl advice think going to contact them all again anyway and see if they have waiting lists ... Kinda like you saud cutting out middle man . Thank u for ur reply xxx
    Why don't you call the unis and ask to speak to the SLT course administrator/office - I'm sure they would give you the contact details for the SLT in charge of admissions for the course. I am sure they would be more helpful than the unis general admissions department.

    The phonetic alphabet session was interesting. The only bad thing was the building is quite run down. I can't wait to start too as long as I get the grades!

    Yeah I think it was more geared to school leavers, or even people who aren't from Glasgow. Was nice to meet some people though, so there'll be a few familiar faces in September. I was sitting like directly opposite you! On the other side of the middle table, I came in with my Mum. Wish it would just hurry up and be Sept!

    Yeah it was good to meet some people, especially as we'll be 'mature students' and won't know anyone from school! Ah cool! I know i can't wait, I wish would get more info and reading lists before august, the waiting is killing me haha! I won't be saying that once we've started though probably x

    Haha can't believe I'm supposedly 'mature'! =( I know, I'd like the reading lists sooner than that, don't see why they can't give those that have accepted their offers them! I know, I think it's gonna be such hard work! Have you tried to apply for your SAAS yet? I got a letter from them saying they couldn't process my application because the uni hadn't sent them the term dates yet? I've emailed the SLT department but no reply!

    I know me too, I look younger than the school leavers haha! Me too, I wish we could just get them now. It really will be! Yeah I got the same letter from saas, I don't know how long it will take them to process them. I want to know what I'll getting! At the open day the lady didn't seem to realise that people had accepted the course already x

    Haha I know! One of the men I work with at a stroke group told me last week he thought I was 15! At least we can just pretend we're not mature! Did you email the uni at all? I might just phone SAAS actually. I'm thinking of emailing that woman that took the info day and seeing if she could send me the reading list earlier, or even just a few suggestions.
