    Hi Debs

    I've not heard anything at all. I think the only thing I've had from UWE is a reminder to upload my Access certificate when I have it, and also an invite to an information afternoon if I've not been to an open day.

    Hope you are well - I'm writing genetics essays today and wishing I was outside in the sunshine instead!! :cool:

    HI,

    Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about the bursary.
    I think they send all our details off together, so we wont hear until may at least, how ever the bursary calculator is now set to the 2012/2013 new bursary amounts so you can get a rough estimate!

    Hi Karen,
    Have a fantastic time! I'm really envious- I'm sure you will have an amazing experience.

    To everyone- I eventually got a reply from Vanessa about the length of the course, but I don't think it's definitive. She thinks 39 weeks, so fingers crossed she's right.

    50/50 chance of the warden's job sounds positive too.

    Keep in touch and let us know all about the trip!
    See you all soon.

    Congratulations and good luck, the tutors were lovely and seemed to really want to be there and want you to be there too, although I came out of my interview unsure if it had gone well or not (so was shocked when offered a place!)

    Hi, I have firmed my choice at southampton, its such a lovely uni and area and it sounds alot better academically than UWE. A girl in her 3rd year knows a student OT from UWE and she said how her friend wishes she went to southampton.
    I would recomend you look at the uni first before you deffo chose. Before i went i was more thinking firming UWE but southampton is the one for me
