    You've received leaflets from them? Lol :-p

    I've had nothing.
    its really good we have forums like this to help each other out, feel a bit in limbo, not having any occupational health checks or a pvg through yet, and "that timetable" lol, it's a disaster.

    Maybe we could all meet up on the 16th around 8.45 and try and find where to go?

    I e-mailed to ask about the "timetable", and they replied to say that they hadn't provided any information about timetables yet so they weren't too sure where this information came from. She said that we will be in class from Wed to Fri from the w/c 23rd of Sept until w/c 11th Nov and that they will be in touch soon with all the details!

    That sounds like a good idea.

    Soon? It will have to be, we have less than 2 weeks.

    Thanks for doing that. I don't think I knew what any of my timetables/schedules were like for my previous degrees prior to me actually having registered on my courses. However, I definitely had induction info a month before I had to be on campus. Maybe they will email it or something soon. This is only the 2nd year the MSc has been running so I try and give them the benefit of the doubt.

    I can't remember when I found out about induction for my last degree but I don't remember being concerned 2 weeks before because I didn't know.

    I really don't think we need to worry, they'll let us know where to meet for induction and if not then I'd expect it'll just be the study area at the Caird building and we can find people from there. Anyway, if we've not heard by the end of next week its just a matter of calling to check.

    There's no point in stressing over it at this stage, we all know we're in and the rest will all fall into place during induction. Dont think anyone expected to know any timetables 'til then anyway!

    I had my induction today, was really informative about the course. It's a pretty full on course, most days being 9am-4pm. The student nurses there said the work load can be overwhelming but if you're determined then it'll be rewarding in the end and all the staff and fellow students were really friendly and helpful

    Hi! Does anyone know what days we'll be in from the 23rd for the Paisley campus? Trying to get information from the uni is a nightmare and I need to let the nursery know what days my daughter will be in. Thanks

    Aw cool! How come you've had yours so early? Did they happen to mention placement and whether we choose which hospital is closest to home or if they decide for us?

    I was told at interview we could choose which health board our placements would be in (Ayrshire, Lanarkshire or Glasgow). They weren't very clear but the gave me the impression it could be anywhere within the health board.

    I think it was just a chance to meet everyone and tell us more about the course because we still have our induction week on the 16th.

    Not much was said about placements other than you get told 4 weeks in advance where you are going. You can put down a preference (say you can't drive) but the student nurses there said it doesn't make much difference because they can still send you anywhere. Travel expenses can be paid for, and if you want to stay at a B&B or something like that instead then they cover that too.

    I just checked the induction timetable again on the UWS website and they've updated it with room numbers!

    Meeting on Monday 16th in Room 2.7 with Iris Wilson and Madge Russell. Found it here - http://www.uws.ac.uk/current-student...on-timetables/ I'd assume it's in C2.7 as I think most of the nursing classes are in the Caird building. I'm so excited now!!

    Oh good . I think you're right that C means Caird building and I gues the 2 means the floor. I really just need to get the first day over with now.

    I've got the e-mail too. All I need now is to have the rota for my first placement and I can try and sort things out with my boss.

    Well at least we've got the timetable for the first few weeks - that's a start I suppose!

    The timetable on the course overview looks really intensive, wasn't that concerned before but now I'm so nervous!!! Can't wait to just get started!

    It's actually lighter than I thought, had imagined 5 days a week. Are we all just meeting at C2.7 then?

    This may be a silly question but was everyone planning to wear on the first day. I've been wondering how casual to go and if the dress code would just be like any student.
