    Are there any current social work MA students at birmingham who can tell me what the timetable hours are for first year?

    When does placement begin? January ? It's 9-5 on placement but how about during time when at university ?
    Is it 9:30 a.m start every day? 3 full days a week or what?

    Hi... When I went for my interview, they gave me a timetable for 2017/18 which i assume will be the same for 2018/19. I think its 10am-5pm Mon to Fri. They did say that its a full time course and students should expect a full day... I have passed everything and Im looking forward to starting the course in sept. 2018.

    H. I'm a current first year Masters Social Work student at UoB. The first Semester we are in pretty much every day except fridays and the second semester we're in 3 days to start off with and then it drops to one day a week until our placement which we start in April.

    our lectures start at 10am and finish at 4pm at the latest

    Thank you very much . I've called myself to ask and they just tell me the timetable changes sometimes from one week to another or term by term. I lost the example timetable they sent me.

    Do you drive in to uni and are there any parking issues or are there plenty spaces available ?

    Yeah I drive to uni.If you live over 10 miles away, they give you a parking permit which allows you to park in the car parks for £1 for the full day as opposed to £7 a day.There are some spaces on the side roads but they get taken up pretty fast. It would be worth getting the permit.

    Thank you. I will be applying for a permit as I have children and the uni website mentions if u live more than 3 miles away you can apply for the permit.
    Is there ample parking spaces for permit holders or are they taken up quite early too?

    Did you have a conditional offer and have you heard anything about bursary allocations yet ?
