Hi!! I am planning to apply for a SLT masters in 2020, so far all I know is that I'm applying for UCL and City as I want to live at home. But will probably end up applying for more because I reaaally want to get in. The problem I am having at the moment is that I really don't have enough work experience. I only decided I wanted to do SLT a few months ago and I am currently working full time and its been sooo hard trying to find work experience in the evenings and weekends. So not very hopeful

yesss!!
At the moment I think I’m gonna apply to Manchester, Reading, Cardiff Met, Essex and one of UEA, City or maybe Newcastle, what about you?? At the moment I’m studying Biology, Maths and English Lit A-levels, I really hope I get in!! What are you studying and how is your personal statement coming along?

Just checking in as someone who was on the threads last year - I'm currently a first year at DMU - anything I can help with in terms of wanting to know how the timetable works out in terms of contact hours or what textbooks are actually worth buying when you get an offer or whatever - let me know. Obviously won't tell about interview questions (I only interviewed for DMU and Sheffield's masters) but I couldn't really anyway as mine was a late application so wasn't fully typical of the interview process anyway.

Good luck to you all - I love my course.

The one thing I did pick up from asking around before my own interviews and applications was that the courses can tend to differ a bit in their emphasis and what they focus upon first - I know DMU go very much psychology heavy at the outset, whereas Sheffield go in much heavier on the anatomy/medical side to start with (we have those joys to come later). It's just something that came out when I was harassing every SLT I know for interview tips and opinions!

Hi, I am also applying for Sept 2020 Msc Speech and Language Therapy to Essex, Reading and Sheffield. Really hoping I get into Essex so I can live at home! I am currently working in a school for children with Autism and other needs for the year and gaining lots of experience as the children have weekly SLT sessions with the in house SLTs etc! I haven't applied anywhere yet - I think Sheffield and Reading have opened for the MSC 2020 intake but Essex hasn't yet? I am hoping to get my Personal Statement etc ready to apply in next two weeks!!

Hey! were you able to submit your application to City? I was wondering if anyone else had received information about going for an interview.

Hi! I’m going to apply to MMU and hopefully the new course at UCLAN, applying for the Pre-Reg MSc SLT, for 2020 entry. I already have an undergrad BA in English Language & Linguistics. Been stuck for 3 years as to what to do next. Always knew I wanted to do a masters and this year things have just fallen into place to make me realise I want to become a SLT.

How about you?

That's amazing, congratulations! I'm an international student from Canada so they've asked me to schedule a Skype interview for some time in December

Just popping my head in as I qualified as an SLT about 2 and a half years ago and work with children in the NHS

I won't be able to help with any personal statements or interview questions, but I'm happy to answer any questions about the career :yep:

Good luck everyone!

Hi, I'm also applying for SLT (after almost applying for Business bc I had no idea what to do)! I can only afford studying in Scotland though and Strathclyde doesn't accept a second personal statement (don't want to risk only applying to 2 courses), so I'm applying for SLT at QMU & the rest of my choices are for Psychology. If I'm not accepted by QMU, I'll use the Psychology degree to progress onto an MSc in SLT
