    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.
    Hiya Bgnetf
    Congrats on your placement..

    Hi Kim

    I was referring to the funding application form for getting financial assistance with child support, hall fees or travel costs. It's been uploaded now anyway!

    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 Sarah no I haven't, I contacted them last week and they said it will work today but just tried to log in and still not working. I'll leave it a couple hours and if it doesn't let me log in I'll contact them again.

    A couple of you have said you've done the finance? I thought you couldn't submit until May?
