    Is there anyone else still waiting to hear back from BCU? I was told after the interview stage I would hear back within 2-3 weeks. It's now nearly 4 weeks, is anyone in the same position? Thanks

    Hi Mollie, I heard back in jut over 2 weeks but I know someone that only just heard (over 4 weeks on) and she had to contact them. Have you tried giving the admissions office a call? Hope you get good news soon xx

    Ah thanks so much for replying. I did email the admissions office yesterday but I may just email the SLT department directly too, perhaps they've forgotten about me! Thanks again xx

    The person I know had emailed and didn't get a response.... I don't think it would be unreasonable for you to call them but see how you feel xx

    Hi all, international student here from Singapore.
    Got offers from Newcastle and Sheffield, and also interviewed for Reading and am awaiting Reading's reply before I decide.
    I am leaning more towards Sheffield as it has a smaller intake (I'm told) for this course and has high student satisfaction each year. Was wondering if anyone could give me some advice/insight about these schools?
    Thank you
    I'm a first year at sheffield doing speech and language so if you have any questions feel free to message me

    I've had an offer since 4th March and I had my interview on the 16th February, so they took about 2 weeks to reply

    Is city one of your top choices?

    If you don't mind me asking, what's your reasoning behind this? I'm still deciding on what one I should firm and I'm more swayed towards city but I can't really find much about the undergraduate degree online..

    I was in a similar position either Newcastle (better university) or Cardiff Met (the one I loved) and I chose Cardiff in the end because employers don't care where you went to university with vocational courses like SLT and at the end of the day you have to go somewhere you are going to be happier because you're going to be there for 3/4 years

    Just curious why you need to know this. If its for the bursary then the system works it out for you when you pick the uni and course you are doing. If its just for info then 34 weeks is a good guide for MMU.

    Yeah I feel like city doesn't have a lot of information online about the course compared to other unis. But I would choose city as my firm mainly because I don't want to move out of London😝 Also I went to two open days there and I just really liked the feel of it. Its more of a personal preference I guess haha

    Thank you! Yeah it was for the bursary system (didn't realise it works it out) and making sure the accommodation contracts are long enough because I'm aware that you have to extend accommodation contracts at some unis

    Yeah NHS bursary account knows how many weeks each course is.

    Accommodation at the standard number of weeks will be fine - the longer ones (51 weeks) are aimed at postgrad students. My first year ended about 22 June last year I think with the last week spent on placement. After exams in May you only have a short spell of post-exam teaching then end first year with your placement.
