In particular, we will evaluate your personal statement in relation to your research into the SLT profession, any experience relating to relevant client groups and evidence of interpersonal and teamwork skills. You may wish to include information such as how you have researched the SLT profession and a career in SLT, examples of how you have worked with relevant client groups or in related settings, how you have gained insight into the course (e.g. open days), your personal qualities which you feel are related to SLT, including what motivates you to choose SLT as a career. The selection sessions will include written exercises and discussions with university tutors, practising SLTs and service users / carers. These exercises will look in more detail and depth at the same qualities as those scrutinised in evaluating personal statements. You will also have the opportunity to meet with some current students, learn more about the course and have access to a campus and accommodation tour. Health and enhanced criminal history checks: Satisfactory health and enhanced criminal history checks will be required by all applicants prior to acceptance on the course.
