    Hi,

    I have applied to 5 London Uni's (Southbank, Middlesex, London Met, Goldsmiths & Bunel) and recieved the usual "Thank you for your application, get back to you soon, blah blah,blah..."

    But wondering if anyone had interview dates for these uni's as I haven't gotten anything else back yet?

    Hi,

    I've applied for Bath, Gloucestershire and UWE but I haven't heard anything yet

    Can I ask when people submit their applications? I'm starting to get worried that people are being offered interviews but I haven't. I wish they would like say if my application was unsuccessful...

    had an interview at keele on friday, first was a written test, more to see how your writing skills were rather than knowledge then a interview, gutted that i didn't get offered a place as i really liked it, they said i didn't have enough understanding of social work so my advice would be to really get your answers sorted as to why you want to be a social worker, they said if i got more experience they would be more than happy for me to apply next year, they also tell you on the day if you've passed so no horrible waiting

    Thank you.
    Good luck for your interview next week. I'm hoping there will be another batch shortly after.. I submit my application a week after you so maybe I will hear in the next week or so. It's driving me insane not knowing!!:cry2:

    Hi Lorrabelle Thanks for the reply

    You have confirmed what I thought would be asked at Keele so thanks...
    Were they picky on work experience then? As on the open day they told me it wasn't a big issue? How much have you done if you don't mind me asking

    Thanks

    hi kaaattte, the work experience was fine but more that i probably didn't say what they expected in the interview, i'm really gonna look up more things to talk about so i know what to say, i prob come across a bit quiet too, my work exp is working in a youth club with ages 11 to 14 as a youth supervisor, i have been there since august. i still have to hear back from york, which i haven't visited and UEA which i really like. good luck, this is defo harder than i thought!!

    Hey, iv got a conditional offer from leeds met i has my interview on the 18th jan. I'll be honest with you i didnt like the university or the interview because it was very intense to say its only a 20min interview. I've got 3 offers so far, im waiting to hear from york as it was only last week i had my interview and iv got an interview at leeds uni on the 13th feb.

    They focused a lot on government and politics regards social work, also why i wanted to become a social worker. They didnt use any senario questions. They asked about skills, knowledge and qualities.

    There was a social work tutor and an employer in the health sector interviewing me. I was suprised to get an offer, but some others did say there interviews were lovely. The people are lovely though, just the interview was a little tough, as long as your prepared you'll be fine.
