hey, my names joy, so unfortunately I couldn’t get the sept 18 intake for child nursing (sigh) but just wondering if anyone’s starting in jan 19 like me?

sept 18 people you’re welcome to pop up lol heyyy. 😁👋🏾

also... anyone who’s currently studying child nursing @ BCU to explain to me how the january academic calendar works, please, like the starting and finishing dates + holidays in between because obviously we’re not going to finish by june/july summer & that info ain’t on the BCU website. It focuses mainly on september applicants. So yeah thanks 😌

Hey Joy, I'm exactly the same, they said they have run out of spaces in the September course so have offered me January but I've tried to find out more information and having a really hard time. I want to know how the holidays work and how starting in January will also affect years 2 and 3 in terms of accommodation etc. as most student housing contracts will work from September. Emma

Hi both,

If you contact our course enquiries team they should be able to give you more information about how the January course works, you can ring our advisers on 0121 331 5595 who'll be happy to talk it through with you.

All the best,

Lydia

Hey,
I too am a jan 2019 intake for nursing and was wonderinng if i’ll be guarenteed an accomodation?

If so, will it be at the belgrave as mentioned on the bcu website since nursing students study at the city south campus?
I was also wondering how do the current students commute- because google says it’ll take 30-40 mins- which transport is the best option in your opinion? Also is there some sort of bus passes for students?

I also came across another accomodation called city south campus but this wasn't mentioned on the bcu accomodation web, so is this no longer available?

Please could you reply as soon as possible, thank you.

Hi 11dibran,

You should get the same guarantee as September starters but I'd contact our accommodation team to discuss how it works, you can email them at [email protected] or call 0121 331 5191.

You get to choose your preferences but Belgrave View is recommended if you're studying at City South. It's around a 5 min bus ride or 25 minute walk, but also near Broad Street and lots of restaurants/bars cinema etc. so it's a pretty central location.

Yes you can buy a student bus pass with the NX which gives you discounted travel, and I don't believe City South Halls is available any more, but our accommodation team will be able to confirm and answer all your questions in more detail, so it's worth giving them a call.

Hope this helps,

Lydia

Hi Hollie, I'm due to start children's nursing in sept 19, have you had your interview yet? When I went for mine it was done in 3 stages, first you complete your tests maths/English, then if you get the score desired, you carry onto the interview stage, which is when I got interviewed by two people one being a lecturer at the uni and the other being a children's nurse, then you have another interview after that on n I-pad in a different room on your own, where there's videos of children asking you question then you have to record your answer by video, in a child friendly manner. hope this helps!
