Mature student applying to Biochem at Reading

Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but as I'm only looking at Reading Uni I thought I'd start here.

I'm a mature student looking for a career change, I have a B.Sc. in physics but it was quite a while ago... 30 years actually :smile:

I'd be interested in hearing from any mature students, especially post-grads, who applied to Reading to do Biochem or similar - how was the process? In particular I'm interested in doing the "accelerated" degree - I know in some cases it's possible to skip the first year if you already have a degree - did anyone do this and if so how was it? I imagine it's quite an effort to pick up in year 2. Maybe it would be better to do the full course (or even start in the foundation year).

Any advice from those who've done this would be much appreciated!
