    You pick up a form on the day to be reimbursed. You can submit it there and then or post it in later. You'll need receipts. They'll reimburse travel but not accommodation.

    Good luck
    Thanks, you have honestly been an amazing help! Will you be there on the day? I'd love to meet you! x

    Ahaha no not really! It's actually the other way around. My username on TSR used to be my first name, and my name is on my medical student badge. People would ask me if I was the girl from TSR a lot so I got my username changed! Still happens a little bit though.

    It is nice to meet TSRians though. It seems to come up one way or another and it's really nice to put a face to the username! Especially when you all start in October :yes:.

    Trust me it absolutely was an amazing trip! Here's a selfie of me with some of the children from a local primary school... we literally felt like celebrities
    Salam bro,

    Looks like an amazing trip, what program was this apart of? Was this during your gap year (if you had one)? I am interested in this program you have any details or tips?

    JazakhAllah.

    No. For driving, they have a set amount in pence per mile. You tell them how many miles you drove and they work it out from that. I think it is 40 something pence per mile but can't recall off the top of my head.

    I think it would depend on the subjects you need to resit. If they're required subjects then I don't think that Southampton will be happy about it. If you have the right grades but are just improving them that should be fine.

    Hi, sorry to bother you AGAIN! Would the U1 bus take me straight from the Southampton Central to the university? Also, in the coach station, are they any places I could buy dinner before I head back home?
    I managed to book a flight down and 2 buses back for £70!

    Yep! All the unilink buses go through the campus as they're run by the university.

    I thik the best one will be a U1A as that is headed back up through the city but any unilink bus!


    Coach station - which one? Is it the one on campus or is it another one?


    You're no bother at all. Any excuse not to have to do my essay :lol:

    oh you're right by town. In West Quay (look for John Lewis but it's all sign posted) there is a food court upstairs (Nandos, McD, KFC, Subway, Wagamama, Yo Sushi, Pizza hut & express, spud-u-like, a burrito place, cafe rouge, honest burger co, errrr... Lots!)

    That's probably the safest bet as it's easily accessible and nearby!

    Does anyone know if our personal statements will be considered at the 20 minute individual interview? Just doing some prep and wondering if it is worthwhile going through it.

    Also, is Evidence Based Learning which is used in the Year 0 the same as PBL?

    Hi Neostigmine I have a really important question

    I've been invited for interview (yay!) however I can't seem to get in contact with the doctor I shadowed 6 months ago as he's moved to the states and so I can't get a reference (don't know his number or email). Southampton haven't been asked for one yet but I'm scared that if I do get an offer I might blow it by not having asked for a stupid reference when I should have.

    Would Southampton ask for proof/references if I get an offer? Help please.

    That's a really important question. Stop worrying. They will not ask you for proof of work experience or references.

    They will have it with them and your interview may well be based on things you have written so absolutely it is worth going through it and thinking about all the things you mentioned it in. So that when they say "Oh I see you went moonwalking in Patagonia" you remember what it was you wrote about it and can talk about it.


    EBM is not PBL. We do not do PBL. Evidence based learning I believe is just a fancy way of saying that we have lectures and what we are taught is based in evidence from current research etc.

    We have EBM lectures once a week in Year 4 of the BM6 programme (Year 3 of BM5) and they're just regular lectures :yes:.

    Just out of interest does anyone know the weightings of the group interview and the panel interview? For example is performance in the panel interview more highly regarded than in the group interview? Thanks
    Equal weightings. Need to perform well in both.
