    There is one yes. If I remember you'll get a letter informing you that you are on it.

    does anyone know if graduates can get student finance for an undergraduate med course and do we apply for the nhs bursary separately ?

    thanks
    You can get a maintenance loan but nothing to help you with fees..and as far as I know nhs bursaries are only applicable in your final year?

    Does anyone know if the documents you receive on results day is acceptable to scan and send off as proof of results, or does it have to be the certificate that you receive a few months after results ?

    I don't think you need to send anything on results day. The uni gets your results way before you do.

    Once you get a student number I think you can just start to apply via the website.

    Pretty sure that's it's the official certificates that you get later that you need to send. That's what I've sent anyway and it's all been confirmed.

    Lectures are mainly at Highfield campus (i.e. the main campus).
    All major halls have bus links to the campus - the majority of people tend to be in Wessex or Glen Eyre. Although they opened some new halls this year (Mayflower?) but again that has good bus links.

    I prefer the looks of Glen Eyre (slightly greener compared to Wessex) but any are fine I haven't seen Mayflower though to be honest with you. Looking on google maps, it appears further to travel, if distance is your biggest consideration. (SO15 1DP)

    Hi there everyone,

    I'm a bit late to the party here, and a bit early I suppose! I'm looking to apply for the BM5 course next year if I can, and Southampton would be top of my list.

    I'm a little confused at to where I'd sit in regards entry point. I'm thinking I'd have to go BM5. I am currently a Paramedic and have a Foundation Degree in Paramedic Science (So level 5, rather than a BSc at level 6). To get onto my foundation degree I did an access course, as my GCSE's were taken way back in 2004 (I'm 28 now).

    So - I'm guessing I'd have to go for BM5, however I have a foundation degree as my 'Qualification' rather than GCSEs and A-Levels. Has anyone ever heard of this?

    Well done to everyone who has offers / firmed for this year!

    I think you're right, but the best thing to do would definitely be to call the admissions team and ask them. They're really helpful and nice and will advise you better than any of us. I would wait a couple of months though, they're pretty busy with offers etc at the moment!

    Yeah search for it on FB. There are no links to FB allowed on TSR.

    There are a few of us current students around on TSR if you want to ask questions :0

    Yes and southampton is my dream
    But since that post I spoke to some medic friends and they said that there's little to no chance of getting in through the waiting list..
