Hey 👋
Is there anyone doing radiotherapy and oncology at Sheffield Hallam?
Can’t seem to find any posts on here.
I’ve just got a place through clearing so thought it be nice to try reach out to fellow classmates.

Hi Emma, I am as well. Mature student, will be staying in Devonshire Courtyard.

SHU staff seem real friendly, we even had a zoom catchup/presentation for those of us with accepted places about a month ago

I'd recommend following some of the staff in twitter, they're quite active there. And they have always seemed happy to answer any questions by email

Hey Emma1301, it's good to see that mackers_ire has reached out to you in this post so you can start to talk to other mature students You can both also post in our official 2020 applicant thread to find fellow more fellow applicants and sometimes you can find unofficial groups on Facebook applicant groups that you can join set up by applicants themselves if you look hard enough. We have a weekly live chat on Wednesdays 1-4pm where you can speak to our advisers from different services in the uni if you have any questions. Let me know if you have any questions about studying at Hallam or student life in Sheffield.
- Ella

The interview was fine, when I was asked why do you want to be a Therapeutic Radiographer? I just reeled off a 10 minute answer and that took up pretty much the entire interview. Worst part was the group discussion, I was on a table with some super keen young ladies and I could barely get a word in edgeways, I was proper panicking about it afterwards.

Wow, completely different then lol. When I was there, it was a massive assessment day for all the different courses - ODP, Paramedic, OT, DR, TR etc. We were all split up into groups of 6-8, all different courses, I was the only TR in my group. Then we moved round each activity. My group did the interviews last and we were right at the end of the day - I think I was the penultimate TR to be interviewed so maybe they were moving through the interviews quicker.

Have you seen they've put up the preliminary timetable for the first semester? Only 2 weeks on campus, and the first placement has been pushed back to January

Yeah, it's too bad I don't know if they'll still be expecting us to come onto campus for registration in early September. After the big fuss they made about how important it was for them to see all our original exam certificates I'll be disappointed if they don't lol. My GCSE certificates are from 1989!!! Luckily I managed to find them in the loft.

Have you put in your placement requests yet?

Well one uni I have been at just took scanned copies of certificates pre-Covid, so they may do that, or possibly just give groups sodcific time slots to go in for registration physically.

Yes I sent mine in a few weeks ago, Sheffield, Leeds, and Leicester as my choices. They normally give out placement allocations just before the course starts, but unsure how things will be this year.

Cool, I put Hull and Lincoln. Probably two of the less popular choices, so hopefully I'll get one of them
