Hi!
I would have to say although it is challenging, placement is my favourite part of the course because you are working with the whole healthcare team and putting your theory into practice but when we have time in uni it is also nice to see everyone else too

On the Ormskirk campus I would have to say the grounds as a whole particularly near the lake as they are beautiful especially if the sun is shining and it is a nice place to walk around if you need a bit of chill time. In manchester the new facilities just opened for working and also for socialising are brilliant too and are also good for some you time if you need it.

Tips for 1st years:
1. Be enthusiastic both at uni and placement - trust me if the tutors see you want to learn and improve they will go all out to help you

2. Keep on top of the work it will be hard juggling assignments and placement to start to with

3. Ask questions - especially on placement ask loads of questions

4. Make sure you put aside some time for yourself

And finally 5.
Enjoy it!

Hope this helps, if there is anything else feel free to ask

Hi
Congratulations on your place and I'm sure you will really enjoy your time at Edge Hill. Regards to freshers week as I was already a graduate from another uni I didn't live in halls I lived with my partner in our own place but still took part in freshers activities. There is a mixture of freshers activities you can take part in both with flat mates and course mates and would strongly encourage both as it is nice to build that friendship from the start. Regarding walking from Ormskirk it is roughly a 20 minutes walk to the campus obviously depending on how fast you walk and there is also an Edge Hill Link shuttle bus from Ormskirk bus station that goes to the campus too.

Hope this helps

Hey!I'm currently just in the middle of seeing whether or not I have a place on the ODP course.. How FT is the course there? 9-5 lectures?? Obviously I realise that placement will be FT work. But as a mature student with prior surgical and Anaesthesia skills and knowledge I wondered whether I would be able to work a little bit alongside studying.

Hey! The lectures tend to be on a 9-6 basis when in university and you have the occasional study week or study day as well. It is full time but I know quite a few students who managed to work part time as long as you inform placement when you start of your hours and explain you need to work as a mature student. They expect placement to obviously come before a paid job but most are really accommodating
