    Is this for SLT? If so interview invites tend to come out from mid-Nov onwards

    I didn't apply to any of those other unis but from past experience (I actually applied in 2014 so just started my third year - yikes) they all usually work to similar timescales

    It's no problem - ask away!

    I am at MMU but I study a joint honours course - speech therapy and psychology which they don't offer anymore. Manchester Uni was my insurance choice. I also applied to Leeds and Sheffield.

    Can't really comment on the interview process as they changed it quite a lot last year but they do all tend to involve a written section and either a face to face or group activity. It's not as scary as it sounds - you just need to read up about the role of an SLT and maybe some aspects of working for the NHS - NHS website and professional websites are good sources.

    The course is hectic at times but very interesting and varied.

    Quite surprised that there isn't a sticky thread this year for SLT applicants - the support we gave each other on there was invaluable when I applied.
