    Hi,

    Thought I'd start a new thread for ODP that are starting in 2016 at Bucks.

    Very excited.

    Hi Robyn,

    I haven't got anything yet. I've decided I'd rather be closer to the hospital/trust and commute to the uni. When we do night shift it would make sense not to travel long distances. Whilst the uni training will most likely during the day.

    I hope that helps.

    Hi all, I have an unconditional for Bucks 😊 I've not heard a thing (apart from UCAS offer!) I'm guessing that's because they wait for August exam results but I'd love some more info now just to get things organised! Did you all apply for your bursary funding etc yet? Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    Hi Weenaqotw,

    I received a pack this week to fill in a few forms (DBS, Occupational Health Questionnaire, Student ID, Clinical placement preference) and to come in on the 10th August to hand in the original proofs for the DBS.

    Does anyone know when the start dates are??

    Hey,
    I received a joining pack too. I've got 8th August for pre-induction I think.
    Start date is 12th September! ☺️

    Hi,

    12th was the date on the joining letter for registration. Could be freshers/ welcome week (I work at a uni and their freshers week lasts a fortnight!) with formal lectures beginning a couple Of weeks later, however the letter also says that clinical practice will begin on week five of the course (10th October) which ties in timewise.


    Hope that helps

    Hi Y'all

    Me too can't wait to start and hope will get the grades to meet my offer 😁😁😁
