    Hi - on the application for city, under the finance bit, it asked for your NHS trust name, manager's name, and their email address.

    I was under the impression you just applied for funding once you had a place.

    Can anyone help me? Please!!

    Just put n/a as This is only for those who are being sponsored by their work trust. It does not apply to you as funding is provided by the nhs.

    Hi, so happy there's a 2015 forum! For the past six months I've wanted to be a speech therapist and I've already sent off my application to UCAS with the predicted grades A*A*A in English Lit, Theology, and Biology. I'm applying to Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield, Leeds Met, and Manchester Met and I'm just wondering if anyone's received any offers yet? I'm really worried that I'm going to get rejected due to my A Level subjects not being the most relevant I also have a C in AS Level Chemistry.
    Your subject choices are fine.

    Universities do not start interviewing until December so you will be waiting awhile for an offer. I applied early to four of your five choices so I know the relative time scales involved.

    Thank you! That's really reassuring, how are you finding the course so far?

    Hi
    Is their a demand for SLT's or a UK shortage as just wondering before i start to consider this option
    If there wasn't a demand then the NHS wouldn't pay the course fees; all the universities have very high employment prospects - usually around 90% however things might be different in five years... who knows!

    It was for me - was doing my A levels. Where are you applying? Are you in college or a "mature" applicant? Good luck

    I'm 26 and have a degree already but it's only a 2.2 I became ill and finished my degree with completely different subjects in my last year through the open university.

    I'm volunteering with a local aphasia charity, going on a slt career training day next week and shadowing a slt next month. Not sure if I should send off my personal statement after shadowing or get it in earlier and I can talk about it if I get to interview.

    Partly because of my grades and location I'm going for DMU and BCU

    I'm a wee bit more complicated - I applied for something else first cycle, then decided I couldn't face exams any more so took a year out. I then ended up changing to Speech Therapy and was lucky enough to get in on my first try
    As for your other post - totally up to you when you submit it - you could always mention you've arranged it and send it now if you want, and get the actual sending of the application out of the way. I sent mind just before Xmas though, so I don't think it matters too much

    Sorry I can offer no words of advice but I didn't apply to either of your choices - DMU don't interview though do they? They didn't last year anyway. You could send off your application early but refer to your opportunity to shadow a slt maybe if you want to start the ball rolling. You seem to have more experience than I had in any event. Also no real need to rush it as the process goes on way into March/April/May! Good luck

    Oh and DMU are interviewing for the first time this year.. I don't know anything about what the process will be like though! The uni has gone up the Times University Guide rating about 40 places this year so maybe they're being more selective... eep!
