    Hi

    I am a mature student and mum starting at Marjon on the SLT course this Sept and I wondred if you applied and did you get a place?

    xx
    Hi, yes I applied and have a place starting part time in Sept. I'm very excited but I know it's going to be tough to juggle studying and family life 😬 I'm not sure my husband really understands the full implications and the extra things that will be coming his way! We'll just have to work our way through it!

    At this point I'm really glad I'm not 18 and waiting for exam results though, good luck to all those who are in that position!

    Well done on getting your place on the course, have you got far to travel? Xx

    thanks for the response. I am really stressing about how long the days are going to be as i have a 5 year old at home. roughly what time did the lectures start and finish in the first year?
    Hi Lisa, I'm starting at bcu this year too. I'm doing part time as I also have a young family. Are you signed up for part time or full time? Either way we will have some lectures together. I'm sure there will be juggling to do for many of us on the course but I am also sure the students will be a great support for each other and we'll all sort it out! xxx

    I didn't know that! Can you please tell me where to get the form from to claim it back? I even took my dbs into the uni myself and they didn't mention it, in fact we had to pay online via the university system.... It would be very nice to get it back 🙂
    Once you are enrolled, you can get the form from the Admin office (I can't remember the room number but level 2 and level with the lifts near the low '20..' number rooms) or from the main reception (just inside the building). Nobody officially told us, word got spread around the group.

    Hi! I've just finished second year, going into final year of SaLT at BCU at the end of this month! When I started we got our DBS refunded I am just contacting a lecturer at BCU to ask if this is still the case, and if so where the link to the form to get a refund is. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask me

    In first year, you typically have 9am-4pm days (some 10am-3pm, some 9am-5pm), with Wednesday off. We had some sessions which were split into groups and may have gone onto 7pm if you were in group B for example, but if you need to switch groups to finish earlier they are very understanding and helpful with this, as they are very well equip to help part time students

    Hello Is anyone else intending to go to UoM this September? I've accepted my offer from them but had no correspondence about health checks or DBS and am not even sure of the course start date... I've tried calling/emailing but not had any luck yet. Can anyone help?

    Finally found someone who is going to be studying SLT at UoM. (If I get the grades obviously). I am in the same boat, I have no idea of the course date, but I'm sure it would most likely to be towards the end of September. As for the DBS check, that will probably be done once you get the grades. You should however had received a letter, to fill in and sign from your doctor, regarding your health. ( It should have come in the post). Having said that, mine did not, but I received an E-mail saying to fill it in, otherwise my offer would be declined. So I asked them to E-mail it me and then just printed it of at home and sent it to them. I haven't heard from that since (that was late June). Also, are you E-mailing them on the right E-mail? They typically reply within a day/ few hours.

    Forgive the intrusion into your discussion - I am actually a SLT student at the other Manchester uni - but I did have UofM as my insurance choice two years ago. If I remember rightly all I got from UofM was the health questionnaire with no mention of the DBS check (whereas at MMU we had to complete this during the summer so it was back before we started). Our next academic year starts on 19 Sept and this should be the same for you too, as both Manchester unis seem to have freshers week at the same time. If you get the results and your place is confirmed then you should have some kind of correspondence/welcome pack - mine for MMU came on the day I got my results (this included details of online enrolment I had to do before I started which gave me access to an Induction Week timetable). Good luck

    Ah amazing so glad I've found someone in the same situation as me! I've actually managed to get an answer out of facebook of all places- messaged the SLT page and it is 19th September to start. I've had a couple of years out of studying so luckily already have the grades I need - but good luck with yours Hoping I will hear from them soon re health check. Thanks for helping

    Try not to panic too much about a situation that might never happen, but just in case, the first thing to do would be to see if there are any SaLT courses in Clearing that will take you.

    If not, your options would be to take a relevant first degree (linguistics, psychology, or something along those lines) and build up a portfolio of good work experience so as to apply for the postgrad SaLT training, or to resit A-levels and reapply for the BSc next year (this option would probably lead to less student debt).

    Pre-results day panic is normal and often unwarranted. I hope you get the results you need, so that you don't even have to think about these other options.

    Hello, I am about to go into my second year at BCU so thought id help you out! generally the days are about 9-4/5 however on one day of the week about half way through the first term this can be until 6pm depending on which group they have put you into.
    Hope this helps! please feel free to ask any other questions!
    I also have a role as a 'Level Up Mentor' so I will shortly be able to redirect you to our BCU page but this wont be until Monday 22nd. Rebecca

    try boosting your experience with client groups. Unfortunately it's too late for this year to do that but working with children, adults and the elderly is very useful! try the stroke association, dementia friends or just working with typically developing children. I didn't have the grades to get in but they valued my experience with different client groups.

    As results day is tomorrow, I thought I would share this video I made for last year's results day: https://youtu.be/6YesSJFdnxI

    Hope it gives you guys for good advice and hope that, even if you don't get what you imagined or didn't get into the uni you wanted, it's still okay!

    I graduated from Marjon (University of St Mark and St John) in 2014, so if you have any questions, feel free to shoot them my way

    Good luck for tomorrow everyone, I'll have my fingers crossed for you!

    The NHS bursary I received isn't enough to cover my accommodation. I still fall approx £2000 short and that's without the cost of living expenses..Is there anything else anyone can recommend? (I'm going to try and find a part time job too)
