    Hello Everyone!
    I have recently confirmed my place for adult nursing at uclan starting september this year!
    Just thought I would reach out to anyone that has accepted uclan as a firm/insurance choice, to chat and make friends that I may be studying with.

    Hiya. I am going to Preston university tomorrow for a selection day/interview. Please could you help me by telling me some things they asked you and what kind of questions they asked on the maths and English? It would be so much help. Thankyou

    Hello!
    I had my interview a while back now and was offered a conditional place a week later.
    When I went I was in a group of around 20 people all for adult nursing, and the tutors gave us a bit of an induction to the course, something similar to what was presented on the open day.
    Then a small maths test which wasn't too bad, which included division addition multiplication fractions subtraction conversions decimals and working out area and volume. So make sure you scrub up on your maths
    the English test was 'what is the the role of a student adult nurse' which was open for me to write an essay type answer.
    Then a small group session of around 3/4 people, which I was asked to introduce myself, and say what interested me in my chosen field of nursing and how I have worked towards it.
    Then finally a larger group session where the whole class was asked to look at a photo and discuss it as a group, mine was teenage pregnancy. Be aware to make sure you get relevant points across as it is hard to be heard in such a large group of people all trying to speak at once.
    Followed by certificate and crb checks and then it was all done and I could relax!
    Hope this helps!
    Its a really pleasant interview, I have had four this year and I found Preston one of the more welcoming and friendly universities!
    Is this your first interview?

    Do you live quite close so considering commuting?
    Yeah probably, there is no way you can apply online I don't think and that bursary calculator is only for last years amounts :/
