    Hi I've applied to study social work in Swansea (mature student) just wondering if anyone had heard anything about interviews? Had an email to say they had received my application but that's it. Thanks.

    So got a email from Ucas this morning to say Swansea are not offering me a place or interview!!
    Gutted is not the word don't understand as I had a interview last year and I've got a whole years worth of more experience since then. I've emailed to ask for feedback but just want to cry at the minute. Not sure what my next option is but I won't give up.
    Hope your studies go well xxx

    Brilliant it's lovely to meet someone else who will be starting. the student finance Wales date for loans/grants has past already I believe? And the care council for Wales on my letter said they'll be in touch may/June. Have you been nominated for the bursary?

    Thank you. All set with finance. Wasn't entitled to some things that I thought I was going to be but we'll be fine. Just emailed the Uni to ask what days we will be in as I need to arrange childcare. Really hope we aren't in on a Friday as that's the only day my childminder can't do. Xx
