    Hi everyone,

    I'm going to be applying for mental health nursing for September 2017 entry. Would be great to get a thread going for all the other applicants so we can help and support each other. Have just finished my personal statement and am getting nervous/excited!!

    I'll start by introducing myself...

    Course: BSc (Undergrad)
    Qualifications: BA English and ABB at A level
    Unis applying to: King's, Greenwich, LSBU, City
    Experience: Working in a secondary school as SEN/learning support assistant, volunteering at an inpatient CAMHS acute unit and hopefully going to start volunteering as a peer support worker with a local mh charity soon.

    I would phone cardiff if you still haven't heard! I've seen people who applied in October ring them and be told that they haven't met the interview threshold but this hasn't been put on ucas as of yet. So I would ring and ask what stage your application is at, rather than keep waiting
