    Yes I do the combined course.

    All the SLT tutors are great.

    I favoured MMU because of the practical style - I am very quiet and shy so thought that would help me develop best - I was less worried about the academic side of things - tho I was screaming after my first biological science lecture (haven't done any science since school) but I am over that now! Didn't go to Birmingham last year so cant comment on them.

    I chose MMU over U of Manchester last year - my UofM offer was for lower grades cos I did a programme with them in year 12 which gave me bonus points - would have gone there happily if I hadn't got the grades but their style is definitely different.

    I also talked about the courses with a local SLT - she said it was Sheffield that had the sciency reputation.

    Have you compared the courses on Unistats website - its quite good,
    Ahhh thank you! I'll look on unistats now!
    The biology side of the course is what's scaring me the most I think! I'm excited for the practical side and all the psychology and linguistics and of course, the actual speech therapy bits, but the biology side is worrying me - I haven't done any science since GCSE either!

    You have to do it wherever you go - its ok though and I only did double science at GCSE! You start placements early at MMU - I have my 2nd one in Feb! Oh yeah the first year bio science exam at MMU is multiple choice and not essay style if that helps at all!

    Ahh that helps a bit! I'm dreading the science parts, but I reckon I'll get over it once I'm there haha!

    I felt like that about the course I stayed in college, it was half biology and I was dreading it. It was hard at first but then I got used to it and actually found it really interesting

    I know I don't know if it was a good or bad silence.. But he blatantly had it on the screen! Haha boo hoo. I've emailed twice, bit the bullet and just called... He said 'you should know by email' and it's not an automated system so someone has to sift through them! Incase anyone is as impatient and curious as meeeeeee! Xx

    I know! My husband just said stop being stupid and ring them.. So I did... And I'm still none the wiser haha! He made it sound like his colleague was working through them but she had popped off on her lunch break but will hopefully get them out the way.. He seemed to think it was by email! So! Check your inboxes ladies and gents for BCU! X

    Hi all,
    Has anyone received an offer from UEA yet? I had my interview on the 2nd December and they said it would take 3 weeks for them to let us know, but I still haven't heard anything! Is anyone else in the same situation?
    I'm in the same boat, I had it on the same day and haven't heard a thing!
    I'm tempted to ring them now and enquire- will I seem rude though anyone?!

    I don't think that would be rude to phone to enquire as it is after the date they gave you

    Ohh Christmas Eve, nice early present haha! I'm hoping to hear off DMU at least within the next week or two and QMU don't interview so if track goes off I'm scared!
