Hi Thought I would start a new discussion for 2020. Has anyone applied for a Physician Associate course for Jan 2020?

Hey,

I was looking at potentially doing this route as an alternative to medicine itself. Costs are the only thing getting in my way so I would ideally be looking to save up as much as I can from my current healthcare role (once qualified). My knowledge of anatomy and physiology needs brushing up on majorly as do other core clinical skills. I'm not working as a nurse, paramedic or ODP so instantly I feel slightly more disadvantaged with my future application to P.A. courses.
P.A. Studies are actually a really rewarding career pathway. Please let me know how you get on and as ever I wish you all the very best of luck in your applications to Med School.

I’m hoping my application wasn’t too late.. They didn’t specify a closing date but I guess we’ll see.. Let me know when you hear back from them & good luck with your interview at Sheffield

By the way, did you receive a confirmation email from the University of Manchester after you submitted your application ?

Nope, nothing! I went to the open day on Wednesday 6th and they said they’re hoping to get back to everyone by the end of this week
Have you heard anything?

Hi I have also applied but yet to hear anything. Also, I’m slightly concerned about finances. Have you guys looked at the professional and career development loans?

Perhaps they are handling applications for all the undergraduate courses first. Since PA course starts in Feb maybe the interviews will be in Dec. On the topic of the interview, how is everyone preparing?

Professional & Career development loans are no longer available .. They got rid of them last January

At the open day they said the interviews were expected to be held at the end of November .. I haven’t started preparing yet and don’t really know where to start

End of November is around the corner :afraid: considering how there is no funding or help being provided for tuition fees do you think not as many people will apply?

I was thinking the same! Doesn’t give us much time to prepare at all..
I would assume so, yes.. I know a few people who have decided against it because they can’t find the funding .. Also, I think the February start has less applicants anyway

Let's hope that puts us at an advantage in terms of lenience :crossedf:
