    Hiya,

    Is there anyone else starting Adult Nursing at the Luton campus in March? I would really like to get to know some people before we all get there

    I haven't been able to find anything and judging by the discussion threads, everyone is pretty quiet haha!

    That's good! Yeah, you just need to be pretty confident within yourself and your own ability. They take note on what you wear and as silly as it sounds, how much you smile throughout the interviews.

    It is important that you are heard and make your opinions known during the group interview. Don't be afraid to speak up! I struggled with this part as I am quite shy haha.

    The numeracy and literacy tests aren't too bad, just make sure you're up to scratch on metric conversions for the numeracy. For my literacy test, I had to write a kind of essay detailing why nursing is my chosen profession and why I applied to the Uni of Bedfordshire.

    I'm sure you will be fine though, I've made it sound worse than it is and the tutors were lovely!

    That's okay I waited about 2/3 weeks for them to reply! Erm, it was about 4/5 hours long in total but a lot of that time was waiting around. I'm pretty sure it's 80% to pass

    Hi Emily.
    I'm currently studying Adult Nursing at the university of Bedfordshire. The course is good, you'll love it
    Just wondering, have you sorted out your accommodation? I currently live at Fitzroy in the quiet building for nursing students, but trying to see if anyone will take over my room, for me to move back home

    Hi Emily, I've been offered a place on the adult nursing course which starts in March. I've not heard too much else about the course but I have now received my DBS and health clearance check paperwork. Have you started sorting out your finance yet?

    I've started filling stuff out but not sent them off yet. Are you from Luton or are you moving into the area? It's Butterfield where we'll be studying, should be the same place that you had your interview. I'm bedford based so will be studying at Butterfield & Park Square and placements at Bedford. Are you both going to the day on 10th February?

    I'm on the March course, but I'm not able to go to the induction unfortunately. I sent my health check form off and just submitted my online application for my bursary. I've now just got to send off my evidence. Did anyone else find the bursary application a bit of a headache?!

    Sorry for not replying everyone, I've just been feeling a bit disappointed and low abiut university at the moment. I unfortunately won't be starting the university in March anymore as I have to have a multitude of different operations on my knee and won't be able to walk for a period of time I am going to try and request a deferred place in September though. I hope you all have a really nice time though and let me know how you get on ☺

    Oh no, poor you. Try not to worry. Have you spoken to the uni about it? As I don't think the first placement is until the summer anyway. If you do end up deferring it's not the end of the world, the fact you've been offered a place means they should be able to organise a place for you for September (they won't have filled that course yet) and it just means you've got a bit more time to get prepared
