Got a place in Audiology at Aston and a place at BCU for Radiography, im still not 100%. Still undecided. I want to make an informed decision ( research all factors), as I am a mature student with children at school I have to make sure it works in my dimensions.
I only just found out that there is no parking at Seacole building at BCU, closest one is at Broadway plaza which is a 15 min walk( not ideal in the winter months having to walk in the dark on ur own) not sure about Aston but I have a friend’s driveway close to Aston Uni campus I can park at.
Have had no luck shadowing neither an audiologist or a radiographer, thank you Covid!! Nevertheless I have been a patient to both professions so have an idea.
I know sounds petty but I will be doing multiple school run in the morning and can’t ditch the car.
How many hours are the placement blocks, is it a 9-5 or a 12 hour a day?
How was ur experience as a mature student, were u offered support? Were the tutors understanding of ur need to have ur placements locally due to childcare?
I know both professions are well respected and have good job prospects, any info on the two courses from the two Uni’s will be much appreciated!
Thankyou for ur inputs.
