    Congrats on your place, that must have been a long wait!

    I'm moving to Manchester in a couple of weeks and starting at Christie (Medical Physics). I won't be attending the uni (Med Phys lectures are at Liverpool), but I've been looking at properties all around Manchester for over a week, so might be able to offer advice if you want to send a pm.
    It really was, I even called to check because I was so shocked haha! Ahh very good, I only live an hour away from Manchester so I'll probably commute and see how that goes first! Thank you for your help

    I found it quite difficult to get a job in an IVF clinic, but that's because I really didn't want to move. So I was waiting for a position to come up close enough for me to commute to!

    Before I got my current job I worked as a lab tech in a biochemistry lab, but decided it wasn't for me so I did an MSc whilst working there in Reproduction and Development, then luckily my current job came up and I got it! They were aware when I stated that I wanted to progress so it's always been the plan really.

    It's really hard getting work experience, especially in IVF clinics but volunteering in a hospital is great! Are you only applying for reproductive science?
    Heyya! I am first year about to start second year PTP. This is the programme just below the STP and I'm thinking about doing the Reproductive Science STP and i need some advice really. I've read your other replies and wondering what was your course and what was your job position at the IVF clinic? In my programme I'll be getting a good set of experience in Histology do you think I will still need additional experience in a fertility clinic?

    Hi all
    I'll also be in Newcastle for 6 weeks starting in October doing respiratory. Are you all sorted for accommodation now? What kind of areas have you all opted to stay in?

    Hi, could one of you please explain in a bit more detail the genomics/health informatics courses? I've read them online, but they are pretty vague and unhelpful.

    I'm a bioinformatics PhD student so got plenty of experience with programming, machine learning and 'Omics, to what depth are the informatics on the scheme? It's quite hard to grasp from the briefs!

    Can someone give me some advice on what evidence you give that the NHS are paying for the MSc course?

    Currently enrolling to the University of Birmingham and not quite sure who to contact about it...

    Hey, I'd advise taking a look through the learning guide if you haven't already. It goes into quite a lot of detail as to what would be covered in each module/rotation of the course: http://www.nshcs.hee.nhs.uk/images/g..._2014_2015.pdf

    Hi Rob, I too was worried when I saw they were requesting evidence at enrolment, but when I got to the relevant page on the website it already had my fees down as £0 payable by me so it let me proceed without trouble

    Hi everyone. Has anyone else heard whether we'll get any kind of study time during the placements, like one afternoon off a week, to keep up with the MSc studies?
    My department is allocating me one morning or afternoon each week for work (on a computer at work), but I think it is at your own dept/manager's discretion.

    Hi Everyone! For anyone who is starting uni in Newcastle what have you done about sorting out accommodation. I am frantically trying to organise something and just wondered what other people were doing about it.

    Hello,
    I'm a Genomics STP and so will be in Manchester from the 3rd-21st October. I was wondering how you know which other weeks you need to be in manchester in addition to these first three? Does it depend on which rotations you're doing? I will be doing haematology and transfusion science, and reproductive science.
    If anyone knows the dates of the heamatology teaching week please let me know.

    Thanks x

    Hi, were you successful? I'm currently looking at doing the undergrad. I have family members in physiology but it seems you can't progress in the same way without the stp? Thanks

    Thanks for the insight, that helps greatly. That competition is extremely high! I think even greater than GEM (which is often regarded as extremely so). Rather scary.

    I know someone who did neuroscience at uni (undergrad) but ended up doing, I think it was the respiratory stream.

    I have done a psychology degree... which I'm not totally sure they would accept. Though was focused on neuro, and currently doing a masters in cog neuro.

    The only thing which would maybe annoy me is the super specialism involved - but I suppose that is just one of those things. Still sounds very interesting, and mix of 'science' (whatever that involves in each individual stream) and patient contact sounds great.
    Hi,

    I am a final year in cognitive neuroscience and psychology, and although my degree is 50% neuroscience, I feel I am now in a similar position to what you were. If you don't mind me asking, if you applied, how did you get on? A year later, is there any experience or application stuff you would have done differently?

    Thanks in advance

    Ahh cool! We wont be alone I'm respiratory and sleep, what about you?
    Hi, I'm looking to apply for the 2017 intake and can't decide between respiratory and sleep or neurophysiology. My undergrad is neuroscience but my career interest is sleep. Just wondering how you are finding it and if you have any tips or advice? Where are you based?

    Thanks in advance x

    Does anyone know which university provides the neurophysiology course? It says Manchester and Aston but no indication of which! Any help would be appreciated
    Hi, did you find out which it was? Sorry I don't know if you were asking for general info or as an applicant. From what i've been told its MMU specifically for neuro because the teachers moved there from UoM. Do you know if thats true? I'm looking to apply for the 2017 intake.

    Hi! I got Gastro at South Manchester. Salford was my first choice but I decided to accept without upgrades as getting to either hospital from my current flat is just as easy!!
    Hi, I'm gonna be applying for the 2017 intake in Manchester and was just wondering how you are getting on? any advice for applicants? Also, would you be able to tell me what the 'topics' are for each station during the interview process? Don't wanna get my hopes up too much but also can't stand the idea of being ill prepared x

    In honesty, I have completely burned out after my masters degree... which I'm very happy to have now finished
    I hope your degree is going well. The fact that your degree has a primary focus on biological mechanisms should serve you well. For me was not the case, and likely would not have been able to do something biological after mine without my masters degree.
    Still contemplating on my next steps, after maybe taking it easy for a year just holding down a job.

    Congratulations on finishing your masters. I think I might take the same route as you and do a masters before making the commitment as I i've been non-stop for 6 years. Think i'm gonna apply this year and take my chances still, but thank you so much for being honest. Best of luck in your future endeavours

    Hi
    The 2017 intake is getting closer. For those that have applied more than once, can you use the answers you used for your previous application or does the application have to be completely fresh?

    Hello,

    Thank you for sharing this information. For me it was helpful, as it will be the first time I apply for the STP.
    I am just very curious about the interview process. Someone said it is like speed dating, but nothing related to what kind of questions they ask: is it about you as a person, your experience or knowledge in the field... ?
