    Hi Guys, thought I'd make a thread on the Physician Associate PGDip course starting in 2018. I've just received an invitation for an interview! So I was hoping to talk and find out more about this course and brain storm the potential questions that could be asked on the day.

    Hi,I've just submitted my application to Manchester and was wondering how long you waited before you received a response from the University? The Manchester course starts in January 2018Also, with regards to the interview, it's best to look on the website of the uni that you applied so you can get a feel for the type of interview it will be, I know Manchester does an MMI. Be yourself, know the role of a Physician Associate and understand the NHS Values and Principles, I think these are the main points I picked up on from talking to current students on the course. I hope all goes well Kind regards, Jasmine

    P.S Congratulations on being invited to an interview!

    Hi,

    I think it's against the rules to discuss the interviews...

    How long did it take for you to get invited to an interview? I submitted my application on Sunday and I'm just waiting for a response from the University.

    Kind Regards,

    Heeey Jasmine!! Sorry for the late reply!

    So I filled out and sent my form on the 29th of August and I got the email for an interview on the 12th of October. So you could expect a reply in between 2 - 3 weeks!

    Thank you I appreciate the points. I mean on the bottom of the interview email, there were a few paragraphs indicating the potential things they can ask, but they were quite vague. But I'll keep in mind what you've told me.

    Thank you! I hope you get one too! Keep your head up x

    Hey,

    I applied early/mid September and haven't had a response yet either. They are still accepting applications though so the course isn't full yet. Don't worry too much

    Hey Whitney,

    I don't think there's anything to worry about! What I do suggest you do is to call the University and ask them about your application directly. It's the easiest and most effective way to find out and reduce your worries.

    Yes i agree. I contacted them myself after i hadn't received a reply for a couple of weeks. There will be at least another Interview Date in October. Mine was in September so fingers crossed it would be good news soon enough.

    Good Luck everyone

    Hi guys I was just wondering if anyone knows if you can apply for september 2018 entry with predicted degree grades? I can't understand if you have to have graduated before you apply or if you can apply during your 3rd year?
