    Hello!
    I received the email regarding accepting my offer from the university about a month and a half ago, and I haven't heard from them since. I wrote some emails to them today, and I hope to get some answers soon.
    However, could you please tell me what is the next thing that should happen? I heard things like online enrollment should be done before the on campus enrollment and the start of the course, but I have no idea when or how to do that...
    I also can't log in to the student page, using the application number or my email. Is that because I'm not a student yet?

    After I got my results i didn't hear off them for a while, I actually messaged them on the Facebook page got a really fast response. They gave me the email for my course leader to email my results, my offer was changed to unconditional could use my application number etc and I was able to apply for accommodation (this was start of July). Then since I got a link for the online enrolment about a month ago
    So maybe try message on that? It worked for me haha

    Hi we're really sorry for the delay! Did you end up contacting us on facebook/twitter at all?

    If not, its best to give admissions a ring and find out we're you're at, they might direct you to contact your school you'll be studying with (dependant on your course).
    Admissions: +44 (0)121 331 5191/5192

    Hope this helps

    It is terrible. I left the course.

    50% practical is too much time and they often put you in ridiculously far placements hospitals

    Sorry to see you left. I'm a first year at BCU and although my placement is far, I'm just going to see how things go. there's the opportunity to put in a transfer request if necessary. Personally, I feel 50% theory and 50% practical is great, the only way you're truly going to learn is out on placement doing it, so the more you're out there putting the theory to practice the better.

    is it true that for Diagnostic Radiography there is no interview for it? Like when they call you in its not for the interview they just show you around and not actually interview you because I've been told by people who go to bcu that you don't get interviewed for most courses and diagnostic radiography is one of them.
