    I just sent them an email requesting it. Queens sent me back an email detailing why I couldn't have my score, surely it would have took less time just to email me my score.
    Thank u il send them an email tomorrow.

    Congrats to everyone who got offered places & to those who were unsuccessful, do not get up!

    In relation to the DHSS bursary, this is completely separate to student finance & all social work students get it each year they are in uni as it not means tested. It gets paid in two lump sums. My first payment was received last December & my second one was in March.

    Hope this helps.

    Did use the DHSS bursary to pay your fees? Or are fees paid as well as the bursary?

    I received a loan for my tuition fees from student finance ni (this is paid directly to QUB). I also received a maintenance loan & grant from sfni (paid directly to me) which is to help fund living costs, travel etc. I also used my bursary (paid directly to me) to fund my living & travel.

    If you choose not to take a loan for your tuition fees you could use your bursary towards your fees but I would recommend taking as much as you are entitled to from sfni as it is one less thing to worry about i.e buying books, living, travel etc.

    I looked up modules for UU RGR. There is no exams in first year at all and only one in second year. They have a module catalogue -
    https://webservices.ulster.ac.uk/modules/
    Queens have something similar but doesn't have as much info for assessment -
    http://www.qub.ac.uk/sites/ModuleInformation/
    So def would have picked UU as there seems there is less exams, but Queens is just closer for me which means I can work part time and don't have to stress about money
