    Hi there,

    I wondered when you all found out where your placement school was? I'm starting in September and I am starting to worry about when I find out. I need to arrange childcare etc...

    Usually in October.

    You can often find your own second placement - I did.

    Different Unis will have different timescales. Our students are in school by late September, so they will know around mid Sept.
    It's worth contacting whoever's responsible for placements and letting them know your situation - hopefully they'll take caring responsibilities into account when looking at the distance you have to travel, but they can only do that if they know in advance.
