MSc Dietetics Teesside UniversityWatch
Hi Liz, thank you for all your help, so as I understand if I was not to take chemistry it shouldn't prevent me from studying dietetics it will just narrow the range of universities, it's great to get some outside advice I've been loosing sleep trying to decide!
Working out your priorities and what’s expected of you ahead of time is ideal because then it won’t be a shock if you have your heart set on somewhere and then they end up rejecting you because of your A Level choices. Consider what grades you expect are reasonable for you to achieve, what sort of environment you’d want to live/work in, etc.
I chose Bangor uni for my biology degree because not only do I have family nearby and it has a big biology department, but it’s a pretty area and keeps people active. As I’m someone who lived in a semi-rural environment it was important for my mental health that I lived somewhere with lots of greenery and clean air. Try to keep these sorts of things in mind when choosing your top 3-5 Unis as well as your A level choices xx

Hi everyone - I have tried to apply for the 2021/2022 £5000 training grant on the nhsbsa website, but when it tells me to select the year and month I am applying for, there are no options. Is this because it isn't available yet since the Tees course doesn't start until January? Has anyone else had this problem?
You're indeed right there; it's not open to apply for yet so there will be no option for January start dates yet.
I contacted them on Twitter and they said they would write on there once January starters are able to apply. So, it might be worth giving them a follow (NHSBSA_LSF).
Hope this helps!
The NHS LSF will be open for our applications from 1st November, confirmed today on their Twitter feed (thanks Matt).
Let the applications begin!
