    I liked BCU partly because they said 60% of their SLT students are mature! Just wish the accommodation was nicer.. but its so close D:

    Sounds good to me. Good to have a broad range of people. You will spot me at the interview, I will be the one with all the wrinkles!

    I was just wondering, how old will everyone be if they are successful and start the degree in 2015? I will be 23 and will feel really old gong back to uni especially after I have just graduated
    Don't worry about being old! We have a real range of ages in our class - two thirds are straight from school, but the other third are aged 19 to about 50, with mature students, gap year people and students who had just completed a degree. What was your previous degree in?

    Don't be daft! I'll be 25 when I start the course in 2015. You're never too old to improve your life hehe

    I've got two written interviews in December for Birmingham City University and University of Manchester! Trying my best to revise, but don't really know the best ways of preparing.

    Good luck to all applying!

    Ahh that's made me a little bit less worried then! It was in Psychology but I've been thinking about doing SLT for a couple of years and my first degree grade wasn't good enough to get into postgrad

    Quote a few of the first years at Newcastle are in their mid-to-late 20 (myself included). The oldest is mid 40s.

    Sounds good to me! Hoping for a decent number of mature students in Sheffield too. At Manchester Uni a few years ago, about 3/4 of the course were under 20 and the rest mid 20s to early 30s, one mid 40s.
    I'd be 28 on starting the course.

    I got the feeling last year that Sheffield preferred the "mature" student so I wouldn't worry about age being a problem.

    Hi, I confirmed via email, for some reason a lot of the uni's aren't offering interviews through track

    Never too old - it's all in the mind! I would say that though, as I'm even older than 23 reversed!


    Also, for all who have applied to BCU, my Track has updated now so can accept the interview invitation. Great news!

    Can anyone recommend any speech therapy books?
    Thanks

    The answer is probably obvious but how do you confirm an interview date if you get it through email?

    I was under the impression that we didn't need to confirm that we're attending for the Uni of Manchester as it didn't say anything in the email about it

    Hello guys! I went to Marjon yesterday and they said the format of the interview is we'll get given a topic on the day to present a short presentation on, then get given some ethical issues to discuss in groups. The admissions lady was lovely! ☺☺☺

    However I got an interview from UEA today, also on the 20th January...nervous to ask them for a different date :s
