    Does anyone know as soon as you accept your offer when does the college contact you?

    It's around a week before registration . Give the college a ring to find out

    Anyone know when we should expect to hear from susi? I sent of all required forms 3 or 4 weeks ago but have heard nothing back. Is this normal or has my application not been successful?

    No offers for nursing in round 1 either. 9 distinctions mean nothing :(
    Just going to have to wait until I'm a mature student I guess.

    Yeah they only count 8, but still. I got the maximum amount possible. Me and dozens of other people, yet no offer.

    The route to Nursing via FETAC is very competitive and if you look at the number of places reserved for FETAC applicants it is very low in most colleges. If it is practical check out some of the UK colleges are they accept FETAC.

    they should do interviews or something! It is sickening we do the absolute most we can and still told were nt good enough to get in :/ someone told me queens have a february intake for nursing, would you be in a position to do that?

    Yeah I know how low it is. But thats exactly whats so unfair. You would think the people who didnt get into nursing after their LC, and took an entire year of pre-nursing with placements deserve it more than anybody else.

    I got offered 2 interviews in england, went for 1, didnt get in. The other one was offered during my exams and neither side would negotiate unfortantely.

    But on the bright side, at least there seems to be a fair bit of job offers for healthcare assistants going.

    Its a joke as they want to bring in that all doctors must do a 1 yr pre med course and interviews maybe they should do it for nursing to

    Ya i really think they should at least do interviews for fetac applicants applying to nursing... Its just really fustrating yano doing the best possible that you could do and even more frustrating knowing you cannot do a single thing to improve our chances next year of getting in :/ i wud happily do a level 6 course this year if it would help me get in but theres no such thing offered in nursing

    Look into a level 6 then is all I can say and best of luck

    There are no Level 6 courses in Nursing and no Level 6 courses are accepted for entry into Nursing.
