    Hi I'm applying to cardiff, southampton, oxford brookes and liverpool. Sent my application off four weeks ago but my references still haven't been finished! I was wondering if anyone remembered what number they put for student support? I put two but am worried that it's meant to be five. Thanks.

    When did you apply? How long did it take to hear back from Cov? I've applied there and not heard anything back yet.

    Sorry, but as the name suggests i'm not a bloke!!

    Good luck!

    No it does seem to be very female dominated! there is another lad at my school applying though and when i was on work experience i did meet a male OT but he was gay! I've also applied to Derby, Coventry and YSJ but i've not heard anything, have you had an interview offers?

    Helloo,
    I've applied to study Occupational Therapy in 2012 and I have applied for Sheffield Hallam, York St John, Huddersfield and Cumbria (Lancaster campus). I also applied for Liverpool but they declined me due to 'no evidence of recent academic study' somehow.. (even though I did my a-levels in 2010 and then went onto do a year of a foundation degree in teaching but decided it wasnt for me so reapplying to do OT!)

    But yeah (: anyone else applying to any of these unis for OT? And does anyone know which universities do interviews or not? xx
    Hey!

    I've just sent mine off today. Tried to do it at 11:11am so that it would have been extra lucky (what with today being 11/11/11) but alas, I wasted time reading my PS 500 million times to make sure all mistakes were gone :P

    I have applied to Northumbria, Teesside, Sheffield Hallam (Like you!) Bradford and Southampton. Hope to hear from them soon! xx

    Hi, I want to apply to do OT starting next summer but dont really have too much experience in the field. I do have some experience as a volunteer in mental health nursing, but no direct experience related to OT. So I'm wondering what experience everyone who's posted on this thread had before applying to universities.

    zoeclarex..................what do you think you had that made you stand out of the crowd and get into liverpool with an unconditonal offer? loads of work experience? (Well done btw )

    Thanks
    Gareth
    Hi Gareth

    I managed to nab a full day with an OT working with adults in the community with disabilities. I was able to observe a "day in the life of an OT" despite the knowledge that obviously as an OT, each day is different. I also was allowed to ask a team of OT's questions about their experiences and why they love their job, and really excited me about the prospect of becoming an OT. Prior to this, I had work experience in a primary school with younger children, and engaged in a programme called "The reading Challenge" whereby I was able to watch a student with limited literacy skills develop into a confident speaking, very capable girl, which obviously is reflexive of OT. The very fact you have experience with people works extremely in your favour, and the fact that it is NOT OT related is almost irrelevant, as all "people" experience, is an OT experience, so don't worry about it!
