    Hope you've heard back by now. I had an interview for brookes oxford campus. Had an interview on the Friday and was offered a place on the Monday. I'm on a nursing to access course, so everyone is applying to study either nursing or midwifery. I know of 5 others so far interviewed at brookes and they all got offers within a couple of days.

    fingers crossed and I hope you get your first choice.

    Still haven't heard back!! I called on Friday and they said they were going to speak to the admissions team to make sure they have done what they need to to pass the result to UCAS but was also told that it can take up to two weeks (which would be this Tuesday) and so was told I may have to wait another few days for the result.

    I am desperate to find out as don't want to go though the expense of another interview if I get an offer from OB!

    Can you ask your access course friends if anyone had an interview at the OB Swindon campus and how long they had to wait. Especially if they were interviews on 25th Nov same as me. X

    Everyone on my course is applying to oxford campus as we all live in and around the city, so have no specific info about Swindon. So far everyone I know that's had an interview has got a place there are 9 of us so far.

    I had my interview there this week & it was so lovely & welcoming. As a group we had a case study to discuss (there were 3 or 4 groups so each table varied). We then had 10 minutes to write about what we thought we'd be doing as a student nurse. Then, the person who observes your group discussion will conduct your individual interview. Some interviews lasted longer than others, but it was very relaxed & informal. My interviewer had read through my 10-minute essay (less than 1 side) & picked up on a few areas of it. I was then asked to explain how I'd describe myself, was given a situation to discuss & was asked about my thoughts on a current issue.
    Good luck! Just remain calm, it's very lovely there & all of the other candidates were very welcoming & friendly
    Thanks so much for replying! This has helped me so much. Did they give you a current issue to talk about or did they ask you to pick one you had prepared?

    Ah ok fair enough. I'm hoping so much to hear by the two weeks guideline they gave us as I don't want to bug them for a response but I need to know their decision so I can make others plans!

    They took about 2 weeks to offer me an interview from when they received my application so don't panic! x

    Hi all! I am new to this but I wanted to ask has anyone applied for mental health nursing in either of the following? South wales, UWE, Cardiff, BCU, swansea? They're my five choices. I've been given an offer from South Wales but wanted to know about the interviews for the rest of the universities as South Wales was only a 20 minute interview!!

    When is your interview and for which branch? I have mine next monday at 9! I have heard that it lasts about half a day as there's the numeracy & literacy, then the group and the individual interview
