    Hey everyone,

    Who is applying for Staffs this year? You can chat to each other in this thread Here's a couple of ice-breaker questions to start us off:

    What course will you be applying for?
    Where else are you thinking of applying to?
    How are you feeling about starting uni?
    When are you going to an open day?

    You can also check out our FAQ thread on TSR here which should be really useful.

    Looking forwards to seeing you all next year!

    Hey Emma,

    Thought I'd pop in and say hello

    That's fab to hear you considering us for biomedical science. How's everything going? Have you started drafting your personal statement or come to an open day yet? If you have any questions just let me know, happy to answer them for you

    Both are great courses Have you been or thought about coming to an open day to talk to the tutors and students that have experiences in those kinds of courses?

    The Biomed course details are http://www.staffs.ac.uk/course/09C19000.jsp - if you have any questions about the UCAS tariff or entry requirements let me know

    Will also let you know about nursing.

    You might not have seen it but there is a 2016 nursing applicant thread in the Nursing and Midwifery forum which you might want to get involved in It's a good way of sharing tips.

    If you have any questions on getting your personal statement started let me know

    Great stuff - I think you'll find it really useful

    All the child nursing info is here - this page is being updated so it won't be live all the time while it's being changed. It is live right now though

    http://www.staffs.ac.uk/course/21B97100_B730.jsp

    The entry requirements for nursing include GCSEs in English, Maths and Science C or above and UCAS points around 260. It's definitely worth checking out this guide.

    Do you have any relevant work experience?

    Hey there,

    The Children's Nursing course is located at Shrewsbury Hospital. All our nursing/midwifery courses will either be at Shrewsbury or at our Stafford campus.

    Is there any particular reason why you're worried about getting there - will you be commuting to uni every day?

    That's great to hear Fingers crossed! I've seen you've made a thread for 2016 adult nursing - thanks for doing that. I've requested it be stickied at the top of the forum as it's a popular course so it will be useful for other people to find it

    Heya,

    Really exciting to hear that you're applying to Staffs. How is everything coming along with your application so far? If you need any help with anything, let me know.

    Have you booked an open day yet?
