    Does anyone know where mental health placements will be?

    And also, when are holidays? If its a 44week course, how long do you get off at Christmas? Or are on placement then?

    Whilst I'm not MH Branch I can tell you that MH placements can be in a huge variety of places, from acute units at the likes of Glenfield Hospital and The General, through to community-based placements at various day centres etc throughout Leicestershire and everything in between.

    At Christmas we had a reading week and two weeks off, at Easter we will be having two weeks and there is a three week break half-way through the eleven week branch placement during the summer.

Placements are a bit of a bone of contention at De Montfort because the Work Based Learning Unit struggles getting placements at times, especially for MH and LD branches.

    I'm applying for adult nursing at DMU are the placements hard to get to?

    They try to place you near to where you live but invariably, given the amount of students needing placements and the fact you can't really get a rounded experience if you camp out in the LRI for three years, many placements take place in more rural and awkward to get to parts of Leicestershire.

    Other than those in London all unis suffer from issues relating to rural placements to one degree of another.

    Little word of warning, integrating with folk doing other degrees sounds great until you start doing practice placements. As many folk who didn't get into nursing-specific accommodation found out, those hall parties are great until you need to get to sleep for an early shift.

    This is the reason why many universities arrange separate accommodation for nurses.

    I got given a scenario about a little boy who was having his tonsils out, they just ask you to summarize it, then ask 1 or 2 questions about how you would react in certain situations it was really easy, just be yourself! the rest of the interview is really easy i felt at ease, they just ask you why your chosen branch, abit about yourself & how you have prepared for the interview/how youd cope with uni life

    good luck, i'm sure it will go fine! what branch are you applying for?
