    Currently coming towards the end of a degree in Health, Community and social Care at University of Gloucestershire. I finish this is May and wanted to go straight onto do Adult Nursing! Ive always wanted to do nursing but I was never 100% sure on what population to focus on. I have gained a heap of paid and voluntary experience in the care industry over the past through years!

    I am so nervous as to why they haven't responded to my application yet- obviously thinking the worst

    Does anyone know when the next interview dates are at all? I am so hoping they will accept me!

    Thanks, Ebony x
    Sorry to double post BUT have you heard anything back yet? I did my first degree at UoG (music management) and am starting mental health at glenside in Sept :-) Hope you have have!

    No, I am going to be commuting from Cheltenham (worried face), but I did halls for my first degree and they were one of the best experiences of uni. Not so great for studying but I totally recommend it :-)

    Yeah that's the good thing about nursing, you can study it and work it at any age really Yeah I did the Access to Nursing course which I completed last year but didn't get any offers so I tried again this year and luckily UWE offered me a place So excited for it to start as it will soon come around! I'm moving from Plymouth so only 2 hours away What about you? x

    Im excited to start the course too, bristol also looks like an awesome city to live in! I'm moving from Andover which is about 2 hours away too, a bit nervous about living in halls because I've heard mixed things about them but thought it would be easier to be near everything and to not worry about bills! And I've heard child nursing is more difficult to get into because they have less spaces, some girls on my course and going through the same thing with midwifery and child nursing. Are you living in halls? Xx

    Yeah and it's so close to places like Cardiff, so many things to do in Bristol Also the children's hospital was a main reason of accepting the offer Ahh that's cool, same distance as me then Yeah the Glenside accommodation is lovely! Only thing that worries me is the cost of halls so hoping my maintenance loan and nhs bursary will be of good help! Working loads of hour so I can put some money aside! Yeah I'm going to be applying for Glenside halls, my friend lives just around the corner in a house share so luckily she's nearby also! Are you applying for Glenside halls? Yeah child nursing is competitive due to lack of places, but UWE have a lot more places for child nursing than some universities. They are also doing February intakes now as well as September which is new as they didn't offer that last year! X

    Hey! I've applied for Child Nursing and currently got three offers back. No from Liverpool John Moores due to lack of experience with adolescents; however, have two interviews for Edge Hill and Uni of Manchester, I am sooo scared! They're on the 10th and 11th, I'm so nervous thinking of them!

    Hi everyone!

    I've just been given an unconditional offer for September 2015 for Mental Health Nursing! So happy.
    Only had my interview on Tuesday and thought that I had totally messed it up but obviously not so very pleased.. It was the only university I applied for too so I guess I put all my eggs in one basket but it's worked out for the best!

    Would be nice to hear from anybody who has been offered a place for this course! I live in Gloucester so will not be moving into the halls as I can travel everyday (only 45 minute drive)

    Best of luck to everyone with getting in! UWE seems like a really friendly and great place to study and I am looking forward to the next 3 years.. I will be nearly 23 years old when I start! Better late then never

    I didn't realise they were still interviewing! Blimey it's a long process I've got an offer from UWE for child nursing and I'm unsure whether I'm going to put it as my firm or insurance, but definitely one of them! UWE interviews, compared to my others, were very relaxed and people were really friendly when showing me about. So I'd say the most important thing would be to stay informal. Obviously be polite and respectful with a little formality because it's an interview, but keep in mind that compared to the other university interviews they were less formal. My interview was Dec 2nd so I can't really remember much else, but I hope this helps!
