Hey @annab1991

Not sure if you've been over to the oral health science forum for 2023 as it's a bit more lively over there and I've talked to a few students who have applied for and had interviews at Essex already

Have you had an interview yet?

Wow you read the whole thread! 🙉

Have you looked into the NHS learning support fund yet?

When you study Oral Health Science at Essex you'd be eligible to apply at the start of the academic year, just apply within 6 months from the start of your course. Some more info about scholarships and bursaries down here:

Good luck for your interview!

No I’m from Yorkshire but my boyfriend is from Chelmsford so perfect time to make the move and to study at the same time! I have been a dental nurse for 12 years so it’s the next step in my profession 😊

That's great, you've got loads of experience that'll help in your interview. Are you going for Colchester or Southend campus?
I'm a mature student as well, we've got such a mix of students here from all different backgrounds and ages

Oh are you, are you studying oral health science or something different?
I have put both campuses down as they’re both similar distance driving but Colchester is quicker on the train. I’d be happy with either I just really want to do the course 😅

I study Biomedical science, I'm in my second year.
I know a couple people who do oral health science. It's more varied on your course because students have worked for a while before they start as it's that career progression thing onto your next step. For me uni was a total career change from the hospitality industry as I wanted to do something different when the pandemic started 😷
