    Hi All,

    Just checking if anyone is applying for social work at Queens or University of Ulster in 2017?

    Currently completing my application and it would be great to hear from others!

    Hiya

    I'm not applying to the same uni as you, but I have at Robert Gordon, Glasgow, west scotland, Lancaster, and Liverpool.

    I sent my UCAS last week and I still haven't received any offers other than a email from two unis saying they have got my application.

    Has anyone out there received any offers or invitation to interviews yet? or can give me advice into how long it takes for my uni's to get back to me?

    My UCAS is finished,I'm just patiently awaiting my school to attach the reference and do the final checks before it's sent on. I'm so so nervous, I just want to know now if I'm getting an offer or not nevermind the two stages between lol

    Yeah the process seems to take ages and it is so nerve wracking. Things will speed up a bit after Christmas with the second statements and interviews. The wait after the interviews is the worst bit!

    Hi! I received the forms asking for consent to share information last week. I need to order new GCSE certificates and will send these off when they arrive.
    It's a long process so trying not to stress about it now!
    Are you all applying for the 2 or 3 year degree? I have applied for both but I already have a degree so hoping for the 2 year!

    I'm applying for the three year course as this is my first degree coming straight out of school. I'm really worried that coming straight out of school will be a disadvantage because everyone else has like life experience and I don't lol

    It's always an advantage to have some experience to talk about but it all comes down to how well we all do at interview! Plenty of people get into the course straight out of school!

    That's very true! I hope my voluntary work is enough so at least I'm not completely stuck!!

    Hi, I'm doing my 600 word personal statement at the minute. I done it last year and got an interview (sadly rejected after interview). If you have any questions I'm happy to help. 😊
