    I want to do speech and language therapy at uni but i was just wondering what type of things they are looking for..

    I'm still in year 12 so i've got quite a bit of time til i actually start applying but i want to know if there would be anything I could do to help me when i apply..

    i want to go to bcu as that is the closest to me and i dont really want to go far like manchester but that will have to be like my second choice or something... i want to do as much as possible so that i could get into bcu straight away...

    i would be grateful for any advice

      I've applied for speech therapy

      at school, theres not really any specific subject needed. they like some kind of science, english or a language, but for bcu i don't think any is really a requirement

      also, definitely try and get shadowing work! contact local speech therapists and ask if you can shadow them for a day. Also make sure you have work experience from a mixture of children and adults.
      With children you can get work in a nursery or school (thats what I did), or with childrens with disabilities.
      With adults its good to have experience with elderly in care, possibly who have had strokes or have dementia although, i had very little experience with adults apart from a half days shadowing, and i got an interview at bcu
      just get experience, its mainly what they're looking for tbh. hope that helps!
