    I'm not quite there yet haha, so I can't really tell you. I'd definitely advise shadowing in a hospital for at least half a day, there's nothing to loose and you get a feel for what sort of things you see. I messaged a friend on facebook with a load of information, so I'll copy and paste that to you in a message, there's alot of information in there. If you're applying for medicine maybe you could go ahead and apply for optometry? It's optics but not nhs paid? But the entry requirements are higher.
    I'll send you that information though now, might be handy for you

    Oh and, opthoptics isn't right, sorry! :o: Orthoptics is the one you want. Optometry is the one to be an optician which isn't NHS funded :o:

    Meh, more so than it used to be, again, work experience is useful, finding out some info here and there, again, useful. More and more people are applying though, and after your 3 years at university you need to have a pre-registration year, [it's like a year of practice doing what you actually would do, you get paid and you get exams at the end of it]. Should get down to your local opticians and ask to shadow or something, I work in my local specsavers, we tend to let people shadow and that a bit, so you might be better going a bigger opticians. But yeah

    Do they get paid by the ambulance services as EMT2/3 after they pass second year?

    No. If you go the trust route then you are paid as a clinical student. If you go the university route the on some courses you will be given a bursary and have your fees paid for you. Most university courses are only 2 years.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
