    Hi, I wanted to start a thread for anyone applying for social work this year both the 5,3 and 2 year courses at queens and ulster because i know its a daunting experience and i read a thread last year and they were helping each other out a lot. i hope this helps people, i know from experience how nerve wrecking this process can be

    Hi all!!

    I'm new to the forum.

    I'm applying for the 2 and 3 year routes to both Queens and BMC/Magee

    Does anyone know if the 2 year route is 1st year BMC and 2nd year Magee, or both years at Magee?

    Thanks in advance!!

    Also what age is everyone on here?? I'm feeling very old at 36!!!

    I'm currently 1st year at BMC and we don't have any 2 year students on our course so would presume both years at Magee

    No problem am loving the course but it's definitely hard work!! Application process isn't too bad but I had applied before so was used to it. Wouldn't advise applying for nursing and social work as both courses look for commitment and personal statement would have to be too vague. Would definitely advise BMC too so glad I chose it

    Hi wavey davey, we're applying to all the same courses! Im 21 but i defo think being older will definitely benefit you in the process. dont let age put you off, i know so many people who wished theyd gone for social work and didnt and now regret it

    The 3 year route at BMC or SWC you will have to travel to Magee for the 3rd year. Though it works out at something like 34 days you are in that year so not too bad

    Hey guys

    I've applied also for queens and ulster the 3 and 2 year routes! I nearly got in two years ago and am in my final year of Early Childhood Studies now so wanted to apply again, but so nervous!

    Got a letter today asking if I wanted to share details between Queens and Ulster, but I am not sure whether I should as it means you just get one interview, and if you frig up, maybe its better not to share info?

    Has anyone else any advice as other people have told me not to share details so you get two interviews?

    Hey mmq02

    I got my letters of sharing info there too and I honestly couldn't take it off work to go to magee for an interview so I said to share my information. I'm kinda taking it all as it comes because either way theres no guarantee and all we can do is our best. Do what you feel is best for you

    I got my 600 word statement from queens this morning too, have you heard back at all? I got my share info letter on xmas eve and sent it off just after xmas and was panicking thinking it was gonna get lost haha I only got the share info from magee today aswell.
