I want to start a discussion for everyone who are thinking of applying for the PA course or have already applied for the course.

This is for us to help each other out no matter which university we all apply to.

Feel free to join in on the discussion and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Hey!

Yes I’ve applied for August/September 2020 start.

If you’re planning to apply I would highly recommend that you get some healthcare experience if you don’t have any already. This could be by doing some shadowing or getting a job as an Healthcare assistant maybe on the bank contact so you still have time for your course.

Those are good unis. Look into their entry requirements and work towards attaining as much of the requirements as possible.

Wishing you the best of luck.

I applied to Surrey in March.
And yeah I’ve got a significant amount of experience working as an HCA in care homes and the hospital.
I graduated last year but I didn’t get a first. For Surrey you need a 2.2 and above
