    Congratulations on your offers everyone! I've just accepted my offer from Reading & it's all so exciting! Has anyone else accepted an offer there? I know it's a long shot as there will only be ten of us on the programme, but it'd be lovely to get to know some others ahead of time

    Hi Daisy,

    I accepted my Reading offer today too! Can't believe it's actually happening!! I'm in contact with a girl I met at the Reading interview day and I think she might be setting up a facebook page so will link it on here if she does Well done on getting in! Will you be moving to Reading?

    Hi Daisy and Kelsey,

    I have also accepted a place at Reading! It's great to find a couple of others who will be starting there too! I was just wondering if you knew of a Facebook group or anything that had been set up?! Do either of you live locally or will you be moving to Reading - I have just been looking into accommodation options!

    Hi Naomi,

    Yay, another one of us There isn't a group on Facebook yet as far as I know. Perhaps it's time one was made..?
    (Edit: I made one https://www.facebook.com/groups/283717935123859/)

    I'll be moving to from Cornwall to Reading in August or September. None of the accommodation provided by the uni is suitable for me as I'll be moving with my boyfriend, who isn't a student Hoping to find suitable private accommodation over the summer, either a small flat or a big double room in a shared house.

    Hi Naomi

    Ah so exciting! Congrats! I'll be moving to Reading too but actually lived there for a year during my placement year of my undergrad degree. There are quite a few student-y streets nearby that are walking distance to the uni Feels like ages until we start but I bet it will fly by..!

    Maybe an fb group is a good idea?

    Hi Daisy, Kelsey & Naomi,

    Congratulations on getting onto the MSc course at Reading, I have also accepted a place! Very excited!!

    Daisy - I think we met at our interview and then got the bus back to the train station together????

    I won't be moving to Reading as should be able to commute from where I live in Hampshire by train. Good luck with the accommodation search though.

    Has anyone applied for the NHS Bursary yet? I need to get on and do that....

    Hi everyone!

    Congrats on your offers and those who haven't heard back yet, good luck!

    I've received an offer from UCL and also had a phone interview with Reading a few days ago (don't know if they will give me an offer yet!).

    Just wondering if any one knows any pros and cons for both courses.

    My interview with Reading was really nice, the interviewer gave me a rough idea of what the 2 years are going to be like. I noted that is that they have placements over the summer between first and second year which I think would be awesome! I've sent an email to UCL asking if they have such arrangements, but no news yet...

    Any information on the course for either uni will be most helpful! I wish I could also travel to Reading to have a look-see, alas, international travel isn't cheap

    Many thanks in advance!

    Hi again Fiona,

    You're right, I'm the same Daisy! Congratulations on your offer, I knew you'd be getting one How could I forget our nightmare of a trek back to the station around roadworks in that disgusting rain!I started a Facebook group for our cohort if you're interested in joining, as it seems all the other programmes already have one. https://www.facebook.com/groups/283717935123859/

    Applications for bursaries opened a few weeks ago, but I'm putting it off for a few months as mine will be means tested and my parents' situation will have changed by then.

    Looking forward to seeing you again on the course!

    Hi guys,
    I'm currently in my second year studying Linguistics and Phonetics at Leeds. I want to apply to UCL/City/Greenwich/Reading to do an MSc/Post-Grad diploma afterwards, but I'm aware that for UCL you need to already have your degree (i.e. you have to take a year out).
    Is this the case with City/Greenwich/Reading as well??
    Would be super grateful for any replies!!

    Hi Anna,

    You need to already have a degree for Reading. I think this goes for Greenwich too, but they have a January intake, meaning that their application deadline is the end of June, so you will likely JUST have your degree classification in time to apply. You can apply for City during the final year of your undergrad.

    Hi Daisy,

    Yes, those roadworks were a nightmare.... lets hope they have gone by September!

    Thanks for the info about the Facebook group and for setting that up.

    Looking forward to seeing you again in September too.

    Hi Smileyx123x,

    I have received an offer from Reading regarding the same course, so you're not alone.

    What have you decided to do with that offer?

    Hi! Thanks for replying.. was beginning to think I was alone in that offer
    I'm really not sure what to do to be honest. Had a chat with the department and they were really helpful, but i'm not sure if the course will benefit me that much in the long-term?!
    Also it's going to be quite expensive for the year for me!
    How about you? X

    I also got an offer from Reading for Language Sciences.I was lucky enough to be accepted by UCL but I did look at what Reading were offering out of curiosity. I agree that it's very expensive for the year and there's no guarantee of a place on a course in future years. I would think it would be better to use the year to gain more experience?

    I had a look into it and thought that it was an interesting course but at the end of the day there is no guarantee of a place on the course and it might not benefit me in the long-term either. So I'm not going to accept it.

    When I first saw the email I thought they had reconsidered my application lol. Did you have any offers for interviews anywhere else? X

    The band is your level, they are consistent across the NHS to see what pays cake you are on.

    You qualify as a band 5 (SLT). You move up to band 6 (specialist SLT) band 7 (highly specialist SLT) and band 8 (clinical lead). At each move higher you will become more specialist in the client group you choose to work with eg mainstream, ASD, neuro acquired disorders etc. And also take on more supervision roles. Band 8s do little clinical work, they are the service managers.

    Assistants are band 3 or 4 and support the slts in day to day running - carrying out planned programs of therapy, supporting groups, admin tasks etc. They are not trained SLTs.

    Ahh okay! I'm still thinking about it, but it looks like I might have to turn it down.. but Reading is a great Uni! i'm quite an indecisive person !
