    Out of curiosity, is anyone on this thread waiting for University of Ulster's (Jordanstown) HPAT results for SLT coming out this week? I understand that the majority of people here are discussing courses in England/Wales and this post may get lost but thought I may as well try . The wait is absolutely killing me.

    Also - any Northern Irish mature students applying here who are struggling with funding possibilities for the undergrad? I got offers from Reading and UoM, but am waiting to see how Jordanstown goes first because poor little me will be even poorer if I have to go across the water
    Hi there,

    I'm a northern irish "mature" student (22) and am going to birmingham in sept for my SLT undergrad. Haven't applied for funding yet but I will mostly be relying on the nhs bursary and reduced student loan. I've been saving up for the past year from working full time also. One of my good friends is also waiting on results from the HPAT so best of luck

    Well I am holding my breath here for good news for you so they had better hurry up lol!

    Just thought I would mention the accreditation issue as it has caught a lot of people by surprise that are doing psychology with, say, criminology - they thought it was a joint honours be apparently if you don't major in psych its not enough so just be careful if you go down the combined course route so there are no (nasty) surprises.
    Ah I see, well thank you for the heads up I'll let you know when I hear any news

    Hi had a written interview at Manchester uni a while ago and i just really carefully researched their guidance before it. So i'd just check MMU website and use their guidance. Manchester Uni's written interview was really closely based around 'nhs values' and that's what it stated on the website so ijust read a bit about the nhs values and the importance of respecting a patients autonomy and all that. I'm not sure about MMU but if it looks like its also based around nhs values, give me a message and i'll tell you more about my interview with Manchester. Hope this helps!

    Thank you Amy, don't worry I have already made sure it's accredited. I will be applying to the university of Liverpool through extra. I have already emailed them to ask if they would consider me. They seemed really keen and asked me to send a revised personal statement to them when I apply. So I'm trying to come up with a personal statement for psychology which is proving difficult at the moment haha. I'm hoping that I'll attract some energy from the universe and it will be sent to mmu so say basically 'look she's really trying here, and she's done ANOTHER Personal statement, just give her a place' haha. Fingers crossed!
    Have you called MMU recently?

    Nope, the last time I emailed them they said that my application is on hold and track will update when the tutor has made a decision. So I don't want to bug them because obviously it's still on hold!

    There is a woman in my year at Sheffield who commuted from Nottingham on public transport in first and second year, so it's definitely possible! Will you be driving or train? I can send you copies of the first year timetables from the past couple of years if you like.

    Thanks everyone! I'm happy to have got a place at all, but would have been much easier without the commute!
