I've stared at the APL form for an hour, and have no idea. I'm going to one of the workshops they do, I should think that's your best bet too!

It took about 5 days but for some other people it took 2 weeks. How was the interview?

Thanks, for some reason I wasn't nervous. But just not sure if they like what was coming out of my mouth. I only had a chance to tell one of the interviewer I just gained a Degree in human biology at LSBU and I don't think the scenario questions helped me sell myself. 5min was not enough to write the short essay question.

It's good that you had the chance to tell the interviewer about your degree. What branch did you apply for?
. Adult nursing

Hiya I'm doing my APL at the moment too. Have you send yours off yet? I've booked in for a workshop but it's not until June as I couldn't make the earlier dates because of my exams!

I've managed to get all the skills signed off but for the writing part, do we literally just have to say which module helped and write a bit about how? The programme leader sent me the example they've been using in the workshops but it seems very brief?

Do you know how long they take to get back to you with a decision? I won't be awarded my final transcript until July so I hope I don't have to wait till then for a decision!

Hi All

I have an interview for PGDip Nursing in June but I just wanted to check something... do you only start your APL once you have been offered a place?

As you say ReaErin google is not great for info on the subject!!

Thanks

Am not sure as I don't understand what am meant to do in the APL. I just need a little tip on how to do that.

Hey guys, I'm the same as h.mcdaid - Just received the offer through for PgDip Children's Nursing but as i've not formally accepted it on UCAS yet, I can't get any info about the APL and life sciences workbook that I need to do as my first degree didn't include any science modules.

Can anyone give any instructions or private message me the handbook if LSBU emailed it over? Would be amazing to get a super head start as we dont have much longer until the course start and I also have a full time job that i'll need to give my notice in for, so I need to get it in asap

On another note, I'm so nervous but excited at the same time What has everyone else got an offer for? Any other PgDip Childrens?

Congratulations on your offer, I've just completed my APL portfolio and have been given an official offer. The APL portfolio is for the university to check that you are able to actually complete the course in the 2 years rather then the 3 years you would need for undergraduate.

It can seem daunting, but all you need to do is prove your degree certificate, degree transcript, CV, complete the life science work book, which covers the basics of human biology, and if your first degree was more then 5 years ago you will need to send a supporting personal statement to show how your degree has been helpful since you've left. Anything extra, the advisor they give you will help you through it.

Try not to panick, there success rate for passing APL is really good. Plus they have workshops to help you through it
