    Mine was a psychology degree and I had a bit of health care experience- not loads but enough to meet the APEL form so you should be fine either way! X

    Hey all- I am due to start the PGDip in Sept 2014 also at UWL- looking forward to meeting you all. For the Irish students - does anyone know how I find out/ what have you guys found out about finance/ bursary entitlements? Not sure if we are eligible. Does anyone know the best way to apply for cheapest loan? money worries!!!!

    When I was in first year the timetable was 2-3 days a week. Now I will be in my third year but my placements in 1st and 2nd year were all in London, but they may vary as I'm doing Mental Health Nursing and therefore it may be different from Adult nursing. I hope my information was useful.

    Oh okay, than probably your placements will not be in London as Reading is not in London. But keep your fingers crossed.

    Hi Amanda,
    Just wondering if you've found accommodation yet? We have a house of 2/3year nursing/midwifery students and need another housemate and want someone also doing a similar course😊 let me know if you're still looking!
