    Hi guys,
    Thought I'd start a thread for 2017 intakes! I thinking of applying to Leicester (1st choice) & Bedfordshire for degree, and Bedfordshire, Coventry & Birmingham for diploma! Anyone else thinking of applying for Operating Department Practice? 😊

    yes it's called access to Healthcare Sciences ...


    it is very rare for pre-reg courses to be offered with foundation years ( the notable execption being widening access courses for Medicine / Foundation year Medicine for those with the 'wrong' subjects at A level)

    ETA it;s also not that long ago since you could find Nursing and ODP courses with level 2 entry and direct entry to A+E in the ambulance service was also typically level 2 before the latest set of moves to HE

    Hi,
    Has anyone applied for the ODP Bcs course with lower predicted grades than the requirements but still got an offer/ interview? My teacher won't let me have BBC as my predicted grades and am thinking about the chances of getting offers with lower grades because the course is so competitive. 😞😓

    Ahh the waiting is an absolute nightmare!
    Had my interview for oxford Brookes yesterday they said between 2days and two weeks and I will know either way.

    But I want to go to either teeside or Northumbria as it saves me relocating 😬

    Oh well done!
    Huddersfield have said no already, but that's fine, Staffs and Cov are probably my first choices, then Leicester and BCU.

    How long did it take from interview until you received your offer from Oxford Brookes?
