Hey guys! I was just wondering whether anyone has applied to the PA programme at Birmingham University for the August 2020 cohort? Can't seem to find any other threads.

Hi Dharaa
I've applied to Bhan, have you heard anything from them?
I sent my application only last week so I guess very early days!
Good luck

Hello! Nope, I still haven't heard anything from them. I think with the whole situation, the whole process has become a little slow tbh. Good luck to you too!

How did you find it? What was the interview style, question and answers? I guess you can't do MMI?
Any information will be much appreciated 😊

I was very nervous at first but tbh the staff were extremely friendly . The interview itself took about 40 mins . Due to the coronavirus the interview was not in the same style it would be i.e. MMI format . General interview questions were asked i.e
-Why do you want to be a PA
-Why do you not want to become a doctor
-Medical pillars
-PatientConfidentialityy
-Previous example of a difficult situation
-The role of a PA
-Why Uob

Im going to be honest with you I can notrememberr the rest of the questions
As long as your passionate I think you will be fine .

What is your undergraduate degree and where did you study if you dont mind me asking ?

Let me know how it goes good luck hope this info helped .
P.s. Advice dont keep your answers textbook style make them unique to yourself they dont want to hear the answer everyone is going to give you need to stand out from the crowd and think with an open mind

Hi, how are you guys funding the course? I was looking to apply for the January cohort but I am stuck financially and have heard it is a very intense course so it is not recommended working on the side.

Thanks for all the information, is very helpful.

Oh that's a good course , you'll be fine dont get nervous. Yes they notified me a few days after to offer me a place on the course unofficially and then they sent an official offer through . They may ask you why did you not want to continue to do dental hygiene and therapy . good luck youll smash it

same yes I have spoken to a student currently studying it at UOB and they have said that it is a very intense course and that they would not recommend working either . I know that you can apply for a masters loan from the government i.e. student loans

I know that some university offer a £5000 bursary from HEE and that Uob have been able obtain it in the past but I’m not sure about this year
I think Hull York medical have got a bursary this year
I hope Uob are able to offer it this year it would be so good , but as far as I am aware you do have to be self funding student to be eligible so no form of student finance
