Hiiii

I couldn't seem to find a threat for 2017 Podiatry so I thought I'd start one

applied as soon as UCAS opened & I have an interview for November 9th at New College Durham.

Can't wait :bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile::bigsmile:

Would love to hear from other applicants and just wondering what people are looking at for relevant news?


Xx

Great, good luck with your application!

Yeah I'm already revising those, thanks
I've just finished shadowing a podiatrist in a private practice so I'm now trying to get some experience in the NHS but struggling x

I've got interviews at Durham, Huddersfield, BMet and Southampton, not heard from Glasgow yet. Has anyone else been to any of these interviews yet? What sort of questions do they ask? I'm so nervous aha.

Durham is really relaxed. Try not to worry. There's nothing to try and trip you up. I can't remember what I was asked but they were quite basic questions. The written piece is just a few questions to answer. Make sure you look up the NHS values and can apply to them to podiatry, revise your 6 c's and think of a time when you've demonstrated each one. The tutors are lovely so try to relax and let your personality come through

I'm wondering if the change in funding has reduced applications?

Hey fellow pod-a-bees! just received interview offers from Durham and Southampton - thrilled! Waiting to hear back from Brighton and Northampton.

I have also picked up on the lack of Podiatry threads for 2017. Maybe it is due to lack of funding this year? Though, if they receive the funny looks and "urgh"s that I do when talking podiatry ambitions I'm not surprised they are all on the quiet!

Good luck guys!

I already have a degree so am not sure if I am entitled to a further tuition fee loan. If I am not I calculated I will have to work (based on my current hours and wage) until 2022 to be able to go to Northampton!!!! Thing is I would wait....

Yes they are for England, sorry I didn't realise... I hope it works out for you. It's awful that they've kept people hanging for so long regarding funding!

Thanks for the help! Are the NHS value and 6C's the same thing? I've learnt about the 6 values- working together, respect and dignity, commitment to quality of care, compassion, improving lives an everyone counts but is there anything else I have to learn in regards to the NHS?

The 6 c's are different to the NHS values but something most NHS recreuiters look for. Compassion, Commitment, Communication, care, competence and courage x
