Good luck Andrea with your practical, let us know how you get on. Are you doing 2 weeks or 1? 
June, I am just starting assignment 5 and have booked my 2 week practical on November 4th. Its hard to get your brain working again if its been a while since you have studied but its a really interesting course.

Yes I know. I have seen a great poster showing the foot model in detail which I may buy as it’s much cheaper than buying an actual foot model (£200+) this might be helpful to out up on the wall and hopefully take the information in better!!! Good luck!

Hi June, I just searched foot model in google as I wanted to see how much an actual model would be but they are very expensive. A poster seemed a better option - something visible to learn all the terms and names!!! Look on Amazon there’s a good one on there - I have tried to send a link on here but I don’t think it’s going to work but the image attached shows it :-) hope this helps x

Hi Kirsty, welcome! Are you doing the advanced course? Did you book our practical when you enrolled? I have spoken to 2 different people in the last month and let messages regarding booking practical and still have received no forms as promised. the communication is quite frustrating, has anyone else had these problems?

I am just starting my third assignment, and it is challenging but great to get the brain cells working again! I've been making my own notes and revision cards on important bits but I'm aware as others have stated that it is very in depth and although we need to be aware of all we are not training to be doctors! Our treatments will be limited so think you have to bear that in mind when panicking over the content. good luck x

Ohh ok I am enrolled on the course, haven’t received any real communication other than a link to the material and assignments, I haven’t yet booked onto the residential, when I enrolled I was promised help, not really hearing many positives about this course??
Any positives please???
Thanks June

I think the course itself is fine and the tutors mark the assignments quickly so contact with them I think is fine. If you join the Stonebridge foot health facebook page there are loads of great comments, particularly regarding the practical training and how good the tutors are there. I have finally got hold of them and have been assured I will get an email today, so hopefully it will be sorted.

All sorted now, I've booked for November as that was the earliest availability for 2 weeks. Anyone else going then?

Hi everyone,

I have just started this course and looking for others in the same position, it has been a very long time since I have done any studying just seems like a colossal mountain to climb at the moment

Hi June,
Don't worry too much. Im sure we all are in the same position. It's a lot of information to take in but not all of it need to remember. I just pick the relevant to FCP and repeat then when I can.
Good luck and all the best

Hi June,. It does seem like we are all in the position. It's quite comforting to know I'm not the only one who is struggling with all the information. Im sure we will all get there in the end. ;-);-)

Hi I am doing the course too...lots of information to take in but not sure we will need to remember all this ....think you need to be aware of what is happening in the back ground
