Hello everyone! I need help with a lot of things, sorry but I'm very very anxious and I want to get a place in this course
1) In the entry requirements it says that "evidence of research into the profession is required". What on earth does that mean? Should I include it in my personal statement?
2) How difficult is it to get in? They say it's highly competitive and they only expect about 25-35 people each year, I'm very worried about this
3) They'd prefer you to have experience working with people with speech impairments. This is impossible in my country, there are literally zero opportunities if you are not a speech and language therapy student: will it impact my opportunities of getting in?

Sorry for the tonne of questions and a big thank you to whomever will take the time to help a poor girl out!

If you don’t have some clinically relevant experience or educational experience you’re not going to get to interview, let alone an offer, for postgraduate SLT. I would recommend applying to a three year undergraduate course instead and try getting some experience in schools, doing some relevant reading and reflection on said reading. Alternatively, take a year to get some experience with some SLT client groups and then apply to postgraduate courses.

If you want to know more, let me know.
