    A lot of these questions will be answered in your induction week. I didn't train at lbsu but these sorts of things are quite common.

    Your placements shouldn't start too soon, you'll have a while in university first doing some theory.

    Don't worry too much about books, see what's on their reading lists when you start and see what you can borrow from the library before spending money on books.

    Footwear you'll be told what they deem acceptable, trainers will probably be a no. Clarks inloop shoes are really popular amongst nurses at the mo and are usually acceptable though.

    You might be expected to do presentations, they'll take you through this, you won't be expected to do them to large groups from my experience for my pre reg.

    Placement hours will reflect shift patterns to where you're working.

    Class times, holidays and all that jazz will be explained to you on your first week or so.

    It's ok to be s bit nervous, most people will be, but you'll be fine
