Decisions…

Making those decisions that could affect the rest of your life can be near impossible. Although I thought I had sorted out my plan of action as it were, it turns out there may now be several other routes I can take. Bring forth the mad last minute emails to several colleges and universities in the local area. And to think I thought now that Student Finance had been approved that that would be the end of it, how wrong was I?! Just when you think you have a plan sorted something or someone is bound to put a spanner in the works.

The countdown has begun…

I’m at that point where university still seems so far off but yet it is edging ever closer. I’ll soon be beginning my studies, if I ever hear back from Student Finance that is…

It’s scary to think that in a couple of months I’ll be a fresher. I’ve started buying some essentials, such as the student diary which is already full of dates (tutorials, exams, TMA’s) for the upcoming year, scary stuff. I’ve started religiously reading the Nursing Times, although at the moment I struggle to make sense of most of it. “Brain can not commute”. I’m hoping as the year goes on my brain will give in and take in some of the information, I’m not going to get very far if it doesn’t. I also feel like I’ve started up a home for abandoned pens, I think I have managed to acquire far more than I will ever need.

What’s really odd is that the majority of my old school classmates are/have just finishing/finished their final year of university and I am just about to begin mine. I feel so behind everybody else and feel like the others I will be studying alongside are bound to be 18 and fresh out of A Levels…

 

The Joys of Student Finance…

Student Finance is the bane of my life at the moment. I completed the wrong form because who’d of thought that if you were doing a university course at a full-time pace but not on campus that in student finances eyes you were only doing a part-time course. Grr. It means the funding is limited so I’m keeping everything crossed that I can get enough to cover the full 120 credits I wish to take each year. If not I may have to drop to 90 credits however this will add an extra year to my course and medical career plans. Blah. I’m currently waiting for student finance to return my birth certificate so I can send it back to them… again. Anyone would think they want me to miss out on uni…

Change of plan…

You may well of read my post regarding the possibility of me starting university as soon as a week after I wrote the post. Unfortunately due to a number of complications with the course and those it is designed for I neither fully fit the criteria or believe the course is aimed at individuals like me who wish to go into medicine eventually. I have thus decided to continue with my original plan of undertaking BSc Hons in Health Sciences which commences in October. Although this is not as soon as I would of liked it will allow me time to prepare and is defiantly the best option for myself. I am hoping student finance agrees to fund me so this plan does not change again, I have already been accepted by the university. Fingers crossed…

I’ve been rubbish…

 

Sorry for the complete lack of posts, I’ve been slacking (sorry)…

I did however have a rather exciting email this morning. One of the universities that I was really keen to study with has extended it’s application deadline, so I may be in with a chance to study with them after all. Granted it’s not a Midwifery or Nursing course but it is Health based and will allow me to achieve a BSc Hons and then take the short course route into Nursing. Yay! If my application is successful I could begin as soon as next week eeeek! It’s just a case of trying to sort out Student Finance, writing a personal statement and emailing scanned copies of my certificates. I’ve got 5 days…

Fingers crossed!

 

Grr, paperwork…

One of the things that I REALLY need to get use to is form filling, I HATE it! In fact I HATE paperwork all together, who even invented that?! I’ve just had to fill out the first of many forms that I’m sure I’ll have to complete before starting university and at the moment I’m feeling a bit like…

I’m hoping it’ll get easier and the forms will get less frequent… who am I kidding I’m starting university it’ll be constant form filling. Maybe I should give up while I’m ahead…
