    Also had my Surrey interview yesterday, think it went very badly! Which interviewer did you have?
    I had Louise Walker She was lovely and made me feel at ease but she didn't give anything away as to whether I was doing good or bad so now I'm just a little worried.

    They asked different questions to different people. Just expect the usual questions, I'm not saying my specific questions as it's an unfair advantage to you over other applicants.

    Hello there,

    I've got a question.

    I was completing my application form, but I've met some difficulties on the page of student support. What fee code am I supposed to select between the 02 and 05 if I am an EU student and applying for dietetics (which it's supposed to be funded by the NHS)?

    'Tuition fees are funded by the National Health Service (NHS) for both UK and EU students with successful UK applicants to the BSc programmes also eligible to apply for a means-tested NHS bursary, subject to UK residency criteria. This funding is not open to international students.' Taken from the BDA website. As you're an EU you'll be funded as long as you have residency in the UK

    Then, it means that from the following choices:

    • 01 Private finance - Entire cost of tuition fees is to be paid by private finance.
    • 02 UK, ChI, loM or EU student finance services - Applying for student support assessment by local authority, Student Finance England, Student Finance Wales, Student Awards Agency for Scotland, Student Finance NI (Northern Ireland), Northern Ireland Education and Library Board, SLC EU Team, Channel Island or Isle of Man agency.
    • 04 Research councils - Contribution from a research council.
    • 05 DHSS/Regional Health - Contribution from the Department of Health and Social Security or from a Regional Health Authority.
    • 06 UK Govt international award - International student award from the UK Government or the British Council.
    • 07 Training agency - Contribution from a training agency.
    • 08 Other UK Govt award - Contribution from another Government source.
    • 09 International agency - Contribution from an international agency, government, university or industry.
    • 10 UK Industry/commerce - Contribution from UK industry or commerce.
    • 90 Other source - Other source of finance.
    • 99 Not known - Not known.

    I should choose the 05 DHSS/Regional Health and not the 02 code, right?

    My UCAS was sent off at the end of November, it took about 4-6 weeks for them to get back to me. Plymouth don't interview and gave me an offer of 320 points and CC in Bio and Chem. Surrey gave me an interview and got back to me within a week, and they gave me an offer of ABB. I had an interview in Cardiff on the 18th and they replied within a day! Really surprised as I felt the interview went very badly ( I was repeating myself and my answers weren't structured at all). They gave me an offer of 280 points I think and BB in bio and chem. I have an interview at King's on the 23rd of Jan, but I think all uni's do them in batches, so you might be in the next lot to be processed. Hope you're having a great Xmas, and I wouldn't worry they have ages to get back to you! X

    I would say 05 is going to be correct as it's funded for UK and EU students of which you fulfil the criteria. I'd probably ring ucas just to make sure.

    My offers are ABB, BBC and 320 points with an A in Biology, C in Physics and A in AS Chemistry. Essentially I just need ACEa with the E being my third A Level as the points from my AS levels are sufficient pointwise, they just want three full A Levels.

    Thank you ElleF12 and Prees for you replies. I live in Plymouth and am desperately hoping I will gain a place here as would prefer not to have to relocate (I don't have any children or ties so could move if I had to though) Also being 31 I would like to qualify in 3 years rather than 4 as I haven't had children yet and hope to have a family so don't want to leave it too long. I have interviews for London Met and Surrey in January but really hoping I hear back from my other 3 choices which are the 3 year routes!!
    Hope everyone is having a lovely Christmas!!

    Definitely wear something 'nice', I made the mistake of turning up underdressed to my first interview and it made me feel uncomfortable all day.
