    Hi everyone, just a question for those who have interviewed at MMU.. how long did you have to wait before finding out whether or not you'd been successful? I only had my interview last week so I know it won't be quite yet, but I'm so nervous waiting! MMU is my first choice so I'm extra anxious.

    Hello,
    I had an interview on the 3rd December and I got an offer on the 6th January - however I know some people still haven't heard. Hopefully it won't be long now as there can't be that many more interviews to go!

    I had an interview on 3rd too and still haven't heard. They said my application is on hold and they will update track when the tutor has made a decision. I think some people will have received replies by the end of this week tbh. Good luck!

    I want to wait till I've heard back from Leeds to make a definite decision!! Between BCU and Man Met I'm a bit stuck - I love all the extra facilities they have at BCU (I didn't actually get to see much of man met have anything) but I really liked the atmosphere at Manchester met over BCU! I think if I don't get Leeds I'd put man met first and then BCU as they're after lower grades! It's such a hard decision though - I never expected to have a choice!!
    Have you decided where you're going?

    Ahh yeah! I remember reading that now!! Which would you prefer Manchester or man met? Do you know anything about the facilities at Manchester met?
    No I haven't heard anything from Leeds yet - I applied 20th October & I know people who applied after me have already had interview offers, so I recon I'm either a 'maybe' or they're just waiting to reject me :/

    I think I prefer man met just because it seems more modern and up to date. But then I like the support they have for students at Manchester. I really am not fussy as long as I get into one of them to be honest. Ah well Leeds seem to be taking their time fingers crossed you hear very soon!

    I'm not sure tbh, I only look at the Access diploma as I already have it. The grades to get in to Manchester are actually lower than man met! I need 30 credits at distinction and the rest at merit. Whereas man met is 36 credits at distinction!

    Just checked a levels for Manchester, AAB!

    Good luck to anyone at DMU today! If anyone could let me know how the interview day works there I'd appreciate it! I'm hoping they give a departmental tour or something...

    I'm doing Sociology, Health and Social Care and Geography. Just got another email from UEA today straight out rejecting me so I think I need to look into it but a student from Leeds said the subjects and the grades I got would be fine so I dunno
    Hmm, it's a tricky one! Because some unis will accept your sociology, but others look for either biology, psychology or English language.. It may be worth emailing the unis and seeing. If not, reading do a language sciences and psychology degree whereby afterwards you can go on to do an nhs funded postgraduate in SLT. That route only takes 1 year longer than their standard SLT course.

    If I don't get an offer this year, im going to study a psychology degree. As mentioned above it would only take an extra year. Depending on what university you want to study post grad at... You can do either a psychology degree or a linguistics only thing is, the undergraduate degree won't be paid for by the NHS. But if this doesn't matter to you then it's good to have a back up

    For those who have applied for SLT at BCU; I have just received an email back saying that basically because they have had so many applications, we will hear within the next 3 weeks.

    Thanks for the update. Did they email you in response to an email you had sent? Was your interview the 1st or the 8th? The waiting is so hard....

    No problem Yes I sent an email on the 7th January and they responded today. The response actually said "you will hear in 3 weeks" not "you will hear within 3 weeks." At least I can stop checking my emails every two minutes for now! I had my interview on the 1st December. Have you had an interview yet? Yeah the waiting is horrible! Good luck!

    You have misread what they said. Postgraduate courses are two years. They meant there is only one year difference between that and a three year undergraduate course.

    The NHS will fund whatever course you do irrespective of your previous qualifications.

    What I meant was the undergraduate speech therapy course at Manchester is 4 years. So if I done a psychology degree for 3 years and then a post grad speech therapy for 2 years it only works out as an extra year. And I also meant the 3 year degree in psychology or linguistics isn't NHs funded
