    Ah same! I'm 21 and this will be my 2nd degree too. I'm pretty nervous too, but I'm sure it'll be fine. I think it's nice to get to know people beforehand, should help:-)

    What did you study before? What uni did you go to?
    I don't think there will be many of us yet as there are only 80 spaces for the Jan intake and not all of those spaces are filled.
    Will you be living at home or on campus?

    Ah okay, guess that's why people haven't started a thread yet. I went to York St John uni and studied psychology, how about you?. I live 50 minutes away so thinking about staying in halls but not sure how that works for a Jan intake. Will you be staying at home or halls?

    I have a degree in Psychology too but I finished that 8 years ago now! I went to London Met uni. I'll be staying at home as I have a family. I'm not too far away though, probably half hour drive if traffic is good. I live is Essex.
    Was your interview recently for the nursing course? I only had mine a few weeks ago

    You'll do just fine. One of my daughters did the same degree at Hertfordshire and she was a single mum to two youngsters. She is now a Ward Sister on the Cardiac Unit at the local hospital.
    Good luck.

    Ah okay, was worried other people with degrees would be doing the MSc course instead. I had my interview about 4 weeks ago, so not that long ago.

    There were a lot in my interview that were doing the masters but there were already no spaces left for Sept so some of them may have got offers for the BSc course. It was no good for me as the placements could be anywhere in London whereas ours will all be in Hertfordshire. Hopefully more people will join the sight soon.

    Ah fair enoug, I have a feeling most people will be commuting for the Jan intake. I'll be staying in halls as I live in Buckinghamshire and don't have a car :-)
