2 universities offer PA as an undergrad course: UCLan and Reading. These are 4 years.

Otherwise it's a post-grad Masters, 2 year in duration.

Yes, but it's a developing career so there are more and more graduates every year.

Please don't create a new thread every time you have a new question. Posting in this existing one is fine.

NO, you don't need to do the UCAT. Have you even looked at their website? Or UCAT website?

As it’s a very intense course you would most probably be expected to be at university nearly every week day. If the commute is too much and you really want to go to Reading, then you could move to Reading.

I know there's lots of hours for studying though and most uni courses have varying hours so that there's time to study...

Healthcare courses are very different from other university courses. Some other degrees aren’t bothered if you don’t turn up for half the lectures, and a lot don’t have as many lectures as healthcare courses in the first place.

If you become a PA you won’t be able to pick and choose what days you go to work. At university you would be learning about making medical decisions, so realistically they’re not going to run a degree where you’re only expected to turn up 1 or 2 days a week.

In the case of any ‘varying hours’ in healthcare courses, you are often expected to come in for the morning and study in the afternoon (or the other way around), that is if you’re not scheduled to be in a class all day anyway, which would be most of the time.
