    I put on quite a business looking dress! Long sleeves with dogtooth pattern. Hey how are you finding Social Policy and Social Interventions? I'm considering doing a Master's especially if I don't get on a graduate scheme, but even if I do maybe I'll do a Master's in a few years. I'm really interested in Policy and Social Research at Aston uni. My degree was Hispanic Studies though, so cultural rather than social science.... would I struggle?

    Edit - that said, the one I mentioned is an MA rather than an MSc..
    I really enjoy the subject. I can't really imagine what kind of theory you do in Hispanic Studies so I think that might be a pretty tough step because you need to be a bit familiar with social theories/politics theories. It's not impossible without but would make it a little harder. And I don't know how your statistical skills are, but quantitative research skills are kinda important. That being said, i am a statistics disaster and managed too thanks to the individual support (my course only has 15 people). I dont know how different it would be being a MA rather than a MSc...

    Hmm I would say my statistics skills are ok, I'm a note taker right now and I work with economics and psychology students who both have to do statistical analysis (they use programmes like SPSS and stata is this the kind of thing you mean?)

    As for social / political theories name me a couple so I know how in depth / obscure you mean?

    We don't go into depth with much theory in Hispanics although it comes up in certain modules. I'd imagine I'd need to do a bit of reading on this first if I was gonna pursue it

    Thanks for your advice! x

    From this it sounds like you will be fine Theories that come to mind straight away are Esping-Anderson's classification of welfare state, keynesian economics stuff etc, so nothing crazy obscure, and it really depends on how the course is. But you would be fine, the people in my course all have wildly different backgrounds from health studies to anthropology to literature, and we all managed!

    I wouldn't mind seeing some stats in terms of how many have got to this stage. Of course some people won't bother to complete the videos at all if they have found a job elsewhere. I wonder how many are still 'in' at this stage.

    Hello everyone
    I just noticed that I am no longer able to access and view again my recordings. Is that the case for anyone else, or is it some kind of technical issue I am having?

    I tried to at the time because it said you could, but there seemed to be a technical issue.

    Now I'm on LaunchPad trying to access it but there doesn't seem to be any way to click on it?

    Ah good then After all my technology troubles I am kinda nervous about it. Already sent them a panicked email before you could reply, haha, but I also asked to confirm the date we get results cause my email only said XXXX instead of a date.

    I don't know what to think. I think I'm good enough for the NGDP based on my degree and work experience. Whether someone watching my recorded answers will feel the same...who knows?
