    Hey I would say that a few days shadowing at your local hospital should be enough, there might be a placement leader at your local hospital, I'd email them. Failing that ring up the hospital and talk to someone. Hope this helps in some way. Feel free to ask more questions and I will try and answer if I can

    Occupational therapy is the assessment and treatment of physical, psychological, social and environmental needs using specific, purposeful activity to prevent disability and help to increase people’s independence and satisfaction in all aspects of daily life.

    Hi I was just wondering people who got accepted to canterbury what work experience you have so I can know for the future ?
    Hi
    I shadowed OTs at the hospital, visited a day centre for elderly mental health and spent half a day in a school for children with disabilities and hearing impairments. I tried and failed to go to a rehab/half way centre as they weren't very helpful. Maybe contact ur local health clinic as they should be able to help or even ur local GP as some have their own OTs on site x

    You seem quite happy! I'm glad about that as I left my last interview feeling like I had no idea what had just happened!

    How do you mean by present the article as a group? I was under the impression there was going to be a group discussion on the article?

    I have heard UWE is friendly and they put you at ease so I'm trying not to worry too much! Did they say how long they'd be getting back to you? Hope you get an offer! x

    I had received an invitation a while ago to a selection day at Southampton on 7th May. As this is really near the UCAS deadline they contacted me this week to rearrange it. Just wondering if anyone has had an interview there? Any tips and what to expect? Thanks!

    I still wanna go there even though they were a bit off. How were they rude to you? They told me there's no way there'll consider my application again this year, not even in clearing. I'm still hopeful though as was my first choice! It's closest to home for me so could still see my boyfriend regularly and my family!

    What was your feedback from Plym?

    Have you had any offers anywhere?

    Congrats on uwe! I might know this time in 2 weeks! Scary times. As Bournemouth is your first choice, where is uwe on your list? Good luck for interview at Bournemouth btw! You've passed one (at least that I know of!) so no reason they should say no! what was your feedback from Plymouth out of interest as well? X

    They declined me and gave the reason as no predicted grades given, so I checked with both my head of sixth form and UCAS who both confirmed my predicted grades were on there. So I rang Plymouth and said that to them and the woman was like well unless your gunna get an A in your EPQ then you aren't good enough to come here :s

    I have had offers from Coventry and Northampton... I withdrew my application from Canterbury before they replied because I didn't really want to go there and due to waiting for them to reply, it was holding up things like student finance and accommodation. Have you had any offers anywhere?
