    Hello,

    I'm thinking of applying for the fastrack course, and I was just wondering what prior experience you had in the field you've chosen to study?

    Hiya DrewRyan
    I'm doing a career change. No I haven't got any experience in the field I want to go in.
    But I have family that work in the career field so I know how it works.

    What field are you wanting to go in?

    Hey! First off, congrats! 🍾🎉🎉
    I also think It depends on what course you are looking to fast track onto whether or not you've had interviews yet.
    I've got another 2 weeks until my interview.
    How was it, I'm pretty nervous about it all. Would love some feedback

    Hey there,

    I was at the interview on the 25th and got accepted for the Computing fast track course in June

    My advice for anyone is just make sure you're passionate or can talk about the subject area you want to study

    hey guys, i am just trying to prepare for the interview.
    i think i'll have the test down - that shouldn't be a problem. I am just worrying about the actual interview itself.
    what sort of questions do they ask you? is it more personal goals and aims, and why i want to study or more course related?
    i am just really bad in interviews and always manage to slip up. so trying to get prepared.
    any information about the questions they ask or any other advise, like what nick has given already would be much appreciated

    Not sure what everyone else's interview was like but it's more of a conversation than a bombardment of questions. Just have in mind why you want to go to uni now and why you want to do the course you've chosen. Don't overthink things as you'll end up waffling and remember that they're not in a rush to get you out of the door, they want to see what type of person you are and if you're driven enough to complete the course.

    Hope this helps.

    Again just stay calm and be yourself

    Hi everyone, my interview is next week, just wondering if anyone has enquired about accommodation during the 7 weeks? I live a couple of hours away so commuting wouldn't be practical. Do they have anything in place? Thanks.

    Hi all,

    I also had my 'interview' on the 25th Jan and was offered the place 2 days later. I wouldn't even call it an interview to be honest. You have a 30 minute presentation to everyone (regardless of subject) about the course, then an english test which just checks your ability to get information from text and also how you write your own opinion. Then you get split into your subjects and go with a lecturer from your subject. For mine (business), we went to the business building and had a group discussion (about 6 of us) regarding the course, then we were asked questions like what will you bring to the course, why have you chosen the course etc. Its nothing to worry about.

    Once accepted you get a link to a pre-course information website which is regularly updated and gives all the info you need. I myself am from the south west so will need accommodation and this is available to all students if needed. There is also the opportunity for funding of accommodation if you qualify which is good. On that note, has anyone who has been accepted been able to access the funding application form yet? It was meant to be uploaded on Monday and hasn't yet.
