Hey! I’m in exactly the same position as you right now. Do you mind me asking if this hindered your applications. If not, where did you get accepted into ?

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

Just to say, the information you received previously about funding isn't quite correct. You get access to the SAME loan as undergraduates for a pre-registration healthcare course and so you can access the full tuition fee and maintenance loans from SFE for BOTH years of the masters courses.

The tricky/confusing bit is that when you do your application through student finance you have to select the undergraduate not postgraduate option but then you pick the masters course which will be listed for your university (this caught out quite a few people on my course).

Ah, okay, I see what you mean. Thank you for clarifying (:

Hi! Me too! I'm finding it even harder to gain experience due to Covid I really hope the universities take this into account.

Hi Paravelle,

I've just started my applications for 2021, and seen that UCL charge a £90 fee to apply. Do you know if this is just UCL or do other universities charge this? Pretty shocking!
Thanks
A lot of postgraduate courses charge an admin fee for applications. It discourages time wasters and encourages serious applications.

Oh wow - I didn't have to pay £90 when I applied but it was a while ago. That does seem ridiculous, though! I haven't heard of that being the case for any course at any uni...

Hi!

I am a current 4th-year MSci Speech and Language Therapy student at the University of Reading. If you have any questions about the course in general, the course at Reading itself, or about university life, please feel free to ask away!

I absolutely love studying at Reading, studying Speech and Language Therapy and being part of the Speech and Language Therapy community!

Hi - I'm curious about the SLT placements for postgrad - how far they are from the uni itself? I'm thinking of commuting from west london to UoR but wanted to know more about the placement catchment area.

Placements are requested from all providers within a certain catchment area for any uni. As long as it’s accessible via public transport, you can be placed there. If the commute is over a certain duration, they will find accommodation costs as well (or used to). It’s just what you’re expected to do.

Hi,

The placement catchment area is actually quite broad! But the university takes into consideration where you live and so give you a placement that considers your distance from where you are living rather than from the university itself.

I am a car driver and live in Reading, so I could be driving anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour and half each way to placement. They do take into consideration whether you had a longer commute for the previous placement and then would aim to give you a shorter commute to the next placement. But it really does just depend on what placements are available.

Hope this helps, please let me know if there is anything else I can help with.
