    Hey just wanted to introduce myself, I have a place to study Midwifery in Jan 2016 at UWE. If anyone wants any advice, tips or just any general questions answered please don't hesitate.

    I have had interviews at :

    South Wales
    Worcester
    Bournemouth
    UWE

    Got offered a place at Bournemouth and UWE so happy to help any way I can .

    Good luck its a frustrating process and you'll find yourself becoming very frustrated with track and portals but it's all worth it in the end.

    Hey Andy,

    I've heard that Salford don't even do notification emails and they don't let apps know until after the deadline date... but who knows!

    Also with LJMU they said that my PS lacked the information that they were looking for in regards to the role of the midwife, never mind

    Hey it's very different for each university, some don't even start looking at applications until the deadline therefore you wouldn't hear anything until mid-jan.
    Because you have sent yours off early compared to some universities may take a little longer to get back to you, i'm sure by the end of Nov/Start of Dec you would of heard something from at least one uni. If you don't its most probably because they don't start until Jan.
    Don't panic about how long they take to get back to you, have you had all confirmation emails ?
    I can't remember when my first uni got back to me as it was nearly a year ago now.

    I know some universities give out invites to the people they really want to see then put everyone else in a "gathered field" until there's more applicants. I have 4/5 interviews and sent off my application on October 15th yet my friend send hers off weeks before me and has only 1/5 interviews. It's solely based on the university and how quickly they interview. My first interview is on Wednesday!

    I'm feeling very deflated that my UCAS hasn't even been sent off yet! just waiting on my college to attach the reference but as I am applying as an individual applicant they told me I could send my form off and they send the uni's references after they send it off, as requested!! So now I'll have to wait even longer before my application is sent off and I feel like this could affect my chances of getting an interview!

    Can anyone shed some light on this situation or at least give me some advice as to whether I can get the college to speed up this process or if its just a waiting game from here?

    Thank you!! x
