    I received my documents back after they were scanned for the NHS bursary and it's been a week but my scanned documents don't seem to be attached anywhere on my online BOSS account.

    Could I be looking in the wrong place? It says on their site it can take up to 1 working day for scanned documents to become visible - but a week ?

    Could anyone direct me to where they can be seen?

    Maybe you can't actually see it then! I think the wording on the page is a bit misleading. When I spoke to them about it thry assured me it had been scanned in and it's in a queue waiting to be processed. They didn't mention anything about it being visible back to the applicants.

    I won't worry.

    Hey! The timetable wasn't too bad. Most days were 9/10am - 3/4pm and we had most Wednesdays off as a study day. We'd have the odd 7pm finish now and then, but that normally meant a later start or really long lunch, so it was worth it

    Hi Everyone, I’m a mature students and plan on applying for postgrad and undergraduate SALT courses for a September 2016 start. Sorry, I realise this is a thread for 2015 starters but it seemed like the best place to ask for help.

    So far, I'm planning on applying to Newcastle and Sheffield for the postgraduate courses and then 5 undergrad courses (prioritising the 3/3.5 year routes).

    The issue I'm facing, mostly with reference to the undergraduate entry requirements, is that they all ask for evidence of recent academic study within the last five years. I graduated six years ago (2009) with a 2:1BSc in Modern Languages (including some linguistics modules) and am trying to figure out how lenient the unis are when it comes to this 5 year rule.

    From your experience, should I do a relevant Access to HE Module to improve my chances of getting to interview stage and satisfying this entry requirement??
    I obviously wouldn't be able to complete a one year access module by the time I apply but it'll be clear from application that it's in progress if that counts for something.

    By the time of application for undergrad roles (Jan2016), I will have spent over 9 months developing what I believe to be a profile of relevant experience via voluntary roles (Scope, Stroke Association,Catch 22 Charity, Afasic Wales,Christleton High School SEN TA work) assisting a range of adults and children with communication and learning difficulties.

    I hope to have also spent over 1 full week shadowing Speech and Language Therapists in practice. I doubt I'll be able toget much more than this and totally realise it's about quality, not quantity.

    I will also have gained paid work experience during this time as a part-time Numeracy/Literacy Tutor. In addition to this, I completed a TEFL award in 2013, have recently completed Makaton training (neither being ‘credit bearing’ courses)and have gained further paid experience through over 2 years of English teaching overseas and work in the UK charity sector. This is all sounding very CVish sorry..I just wanted to explain a bit about my work experience as this seems to be highly valued potentially more than the fact that I graduated 6 years ago.

    What would current students advise in my situation? I think there is funding available for Access Courses if I really need to do this to meet entry requirements but it's not clearly stated how clear cut this rule is and I'd hope that my voluntary experience would make up for this...but who knows! I’mprepared to do it if I really need to.

    Thanks so much for your time and advice Really appreciated. Good luck with your studies.

    Hi,
    I have been offered a place at BCU for the undergraduate course for September. I am a mature student and have a BA in Social Science and an MA in Early Childhood. I am not 100% sure, but think Uni's are fairly strict on the recent recent study requirement. I sent a reference from a school I was working in and this was not considered adequate and I was asked to supply an academic reference of recent / current study. I was taking a psychology course with the Open University and was able to do this, My offer was unconditional, probably because I had also studied and passed a psychology module the year before. I know other graduates who have taken the access course and done psychology A level and they have have been offered places subject to passing them at an appropriate level.

    It sounds like you have a wide range of experience to draw upon in your application. It may be worth emailing individual Universities about their recent study criteria so you know where you stand. Good luck.
