Ive applied for the Biology Fast Track for June 2015. Just waiting for interview details. Id love to know what happens in the interview like whether there are any tests etc
I got an email yesterday saying I had been accepted for an interview for 25th Feb and that its just a 20min informal discussion type interview. With me applying for the Science faculty they might have a different time for accepting. I know the course tutor from the Science faculty looks at the applications and i think Psychology is a bit more competitive at the moment so they will probably have more applications than the Science faculty
email the access programs team for an update. Theyre very helpful
Ive no idea at all. As soon as I hear anything I will let you know. My interview is in a couple of weeks so I will ask that question
I'm applying for the computing course, but I'm having trouble writing my personal statement. Any tips?
I just put what i intended to do career wise after the fastrack course, I chose the access to biology because i want to be a microbiologist. I also put what recent studies im doing with the Open Uni. I have a fee health issues myself (Crohns Disease) i wrote that as my motivation for wanting to work on medical research etc.
I also wrote that working in the NHS runs in my family as my nanna was a nurse, my cousins are nurses and my aunty also along with a few friendS and that i had worked in Health care for 10 years myself as a senior carer. I also wrote about my interest in how the body works and the life around us And that my main interest was infections and disease also how they react to treatment.
Hope this helps!
I received an unconditional offer to start the fast track course in June. It starts on June the 2nd and finishs July the 10th apparently. It's everyday for 6 weeks. It's from 10 till 3 everyday. Basically it's work equlvant to 1 A-level and a half. I attended an opening evening for fast track yesterday. Good luck with your interview.
Also, I'm 20 and had the same worries as you about being the only youngish person but at the open evening I saw plenty of young people our age.
What courses are you applying for?
First of all congrats for getting the unconditional offer! When did you apply and when did they accept you? I only applied a few weeks ago but I feel like I've been waiting months, haha!
What was your interview like? Any tips?
Everyday meaning - 5 or 7 days a week? It sounds like it will be intense but worth it
I applied for psychology!! Yourself?
I have my interview this Wednesday
Good Luck everyone
Basically they're just going to ask why you want to do the course you've applied for. They'll ask if you've got any relevant work experience to go with it, and also what postion your qualifications are up to now. Honestly, it's nothing to worry about. It's more like an informal chat. I think all they're looking for is someone who is willing to commit to the course and genuinely wants to start the full degree in September.
The course is 10 till 3 Monday to Friday. They said that you'll cover two units within seven weeks. One knowledge unit about the subject you've applied for and an academic unit to prepare you for your degree. It's marked as either a pass or a fail. The manager said the majority of students on the course 85% of them will pass it with no problem.
I've applied to do Childrens Learning and Development via Primary. I'm just waiting for my confirmation letters to come through. I'm super excited! I'm looking forward to meeting people of different age ranges. Haha! Apologises for the super long reply, hope this helps answers any queries you had.
Let me know how you all get on.
how long did it take after the interview for them to send you the acceptance offer?
