    Not a clue lovely.. I had my interview on the 1st December like a lot of people I think! But because I applied straight to them, they said I should hear back from the uni itself before Christmas! But obviously that went to pot.. I think I've failed miserably and I won't be getting a place this year..

    Funny you think that because I feel that way too and I haven't even had an interview yet! I applied back in November and I've heard people that applied after me have had interviews so far so I think i'm on the 'maybe not' pile of applicants! So stressful...I really thought I had a chance and I wanted this soooo much!! I have a bit of hope left, but not too much if i'm honest. Hope it all goes great for all of us, and in a few weeks we've secured a place and the rest is history!!!!!

    Hi where is this stroke association if ou don't mind me asking?
    The Stroke Society are a National organisation and are always looking for volunteers. I think you may have to be over 18 though. If you google Stroke Association their website will come up and there is usually something in it about volunteering opportunities.

    It's nerve-wracking, all that waiting, isn't it? And you feel like everything's kind of on hold until you know, even more so as a mature student I think.. having to put all your eggs in one basket! I hope you get positive news soon :-)

    Gosh. Thanks for updating...I've heard nothing either. Is this normal for them to be taking so long? Seriously...some of us have been waiting on news for months now!!!

    Thanks from here too. I still haven't heard back post-interview either. I was thinking of calling early next week after no news today. I think they are still considering us and know exactly how you feel! Hopefully we'll get good news soon!

    It is indeed! I had a little song come into my head this afternoon and it made me smile. I thought I'd post it here and it goes out to all of us on here:

    (In the voice of Phil Collins)..

    " You can't hurry Track
    No, you'll just have to wait
    An offer don't come easy
    But it's a game of give and take
    You can't hurry Track
    No, you'll just have to wait
    Just trust in a good time
    No matter how long it takes..."

    Tra la la....

    Yes- it includes a short individual interview, a group task and some written questions. Good understanding of the profession/role and reflection on your experience are the key points, I'd say.

    The SLT course in Sheffield is actually called BMedSci Speech Science, course B620, is that what you got an offer for??

    People that have been to Sheffield, did anyone get a bus from Sheffield train station to the department of human communication? Their website has no information about public transport and I do not trust google maps anyway for buses!!

    Traveline is a good website for public transport across the country, so might be worth a look there?

    Has anyone been accepted into Reading yet? I've sent off questionnaire and they said they would reply by today but haven't yet :/
    I sent off my application at the end of November and haven't heard a single thing from Reading!! I am slightly worried now as it has been quite a while! Do you know if they do it in stages or anything? It's been about 10 weeks now and i'm getting rather stressed about it!
