    I've passed my skills tests but still nothing regarding DBS checks. I did phone the university about it and they said we'd get the forms sent out to us at some point.

    Hi! It's nice to finally be coming across more people on the same course!

    Did anyone make it to the first induction day in Lancaster? I'm not able to make either of the dates so just wondering what I have missed out on.

    I'm lucky in that I live just over the border and can stay at home while doing the course. I will just drive or take the train every day.

    I was told the majority of people that study at Carlisle are from Ireland. The Facebook page seems to be mainly Irish people. Do you know about the FB page?

    I hope you manage to get accommodation sorted easily enough. It must be hard having to uproot and move so far. I haven't come across any other Scottish people on the course so I might be the only one!

    There were 3 of us at my interview day (supposed to be 9!!). One Scottish, one Irish, one English (great combination for a joke there!). I'm in contact with the Irish one as she got a place, but she's not on FB.
