    I've not heard anything post or email yet. When I phoned last November they said they were sending it out at the end of the month...so I don't hold much hope for tomorrow but fingers crossed! It's funny, last year when I applied, Brighton sent me an info pack and placement allocation before I'd responded to their offer. Cardiff obviously have a more relaxed pace!
    I tried to apply for student finance and the student finance england form needed info on how each term of year 1 is spent, mostly uni or mostly placement, so I emailed the uni to ask them over a fortnight ago, no reply on that yet either.

    Fraquel, thanks for the info. I hadn't come across Ludlow hospitals so its been interesting to have a little google. There are so many interesting places to go! I'm hoping to end up living near a trainline to Heath so I'll only drive when I'm on placement.

    That's halarious they said November 🙈

    In case you still need an answer in regards to your student finance form.. it's an option that says it's a sandwich course.. I can't remember the exact wording. But student finance can answer that for you.


    I don't think there's a train line near the Heath.. regular buses though.

    Thanks Fraquel, I'll have another look at the Student Finance form. I was thinking sandwich course was like when you have a year in industry in the middle.
    I think there's Heath High Level and Heath Low Level stations at the other side of Heath park, it looks like a bit of a stroll but I don't mind that.

    I'm still waiting to find out if I am able to move across to Liberty House. It's mostly Heath park students; hopefully plenty of people with A level Biology! I have not studied Science since GCSE and managed to scrape CC.

    Anyone got any closer with finding out about term dates? All I know is you get holidays in 2-3 week blocks and the typical summer holiday just doesn't exist

    I phoned them to ask this, last year sometime. I said I just wanted an idea of how the year panned out, understanding it could yet change, even if they gave me last year's dates. I can't find the piece of paper right now but it was basically:

    Start 27 March
    One month holiday approx. 15 June- 15 July
    Uni through till Christmas - like a six month term!
    I think it was 2 weeks off for Christmas but I can't recall for sure
    Then start again in January
    Then another month or so holiday late Feb-March.
    It's a weird rhythm to the year isn't it. No summer season jobs for us!

    Cheers Orangestripes, I guess at least that gives us a rough idea! Was that for adult nursing or mental health? I imagine it'll be similar either way

    Haven't received that but may be because I'm still waiting for the uni to approve my evidence of A-Levels. What are the next steps?

    Ha yeah MBrooks those term dates are indeed good for Glasto!
    I got the email too, still no info about the timetable or the placements, but its a start.
    So far on this thread it sounds like greenarmy, hopefulmedic, Tai_PB and mbrooks are the Adults, GracieFfion, Fraquel and I are the Mentals and ThePhoenixLament is an international (?wo)man of mystery.

    I've got an offer for both March and September (dependent on there being enough spaces come August) for Adult Nursing and am trying to decide between the two. I much prefer the title "woman of mystery" though! :P I already study at Cardiff Uni so I know it's the place for me!
