Hey,

Just setting up a chat for students applying for the MSc OT programme - 2015 entry.
Does anyone have much idea for post-grad personal statements/ how much experience do you think is needed for this programme?

Hiya, I've applied It's difficult to say - in some programmes I've noticed them say that they would like you to have experience in two different settings. I have never seen them specify a time duration - most seem interested in what you have learned from the experience/s.

Hey, I'm applying in 2015 to do OT at Coventry, Huddersfield, Sheffield Hallam, Salford or Glyndwr. I have experience volunteering at a care home, a playscheme for children with disabilities, a playgroup with a small number of children with autism and a primary school. I have no direct experience with an OT as nowhere local will accept me for shadowing due to service user privacy. Just wondering if you guys think this is enough? If not any suggestions what else I could do to boost my application?

I really think your experience will be enough. If you can demonstrate why you want to go into OT and how your experiences lend towards the career (which I feel they would nicely as they are specifically focused on the health and well being of vulnerable clients) then they will take you seriously.

I'm 24. Graduated 3 years ago got a Bsc in Psychology. I think the ages will really vary. But you have to have a degree to minimum 21yrs old?? I'm super excited to apply. But the actual application form scares me much more than anything else like interviews etc. it's the very first impression. When will you apply?

Really hoping someone can help me, I'm an Irish student living in Ireland and would love to apply to Essex (among others). Does anyone know if they offer NHS funded places to people not resident in the UK? Any info I have managed to find on them seems to contradict itself... I know Brunel and LSBU are funded and I will be applying to them but I really hope Essex is too!

Hello, I have applied for the Msc OT program for 2015 intake, Brighton, Essex and Southbank as its so competitive I have given myself more chance of getting on the course. I currently work as a Therapy support worker on a rehab ward and have done so for last year! I applied last year to only 1 university but was only put on waiting list and was unsuccessful, it is very competive I must say, so just hoping I get on the course this year! Don't really want to wait another year...in terms of my personal statement I used the one from last year and added few more things I had experience whilst working where I am and my shadowing experience also . I hope it's enough

@ Hannah CM Essex is funded too I have applied for Essex2015 Msc- application process is quite lengthy, but I will recieve some news in three weeks! Been accepted as Home student, but you have to provide a whole load of documents, but I guess if that means I get on the course, I'm game! Although my first choice is London Southbank as closest university to me

I'm also applying for msc ot too. I graduated uni this year but work as a support worker at the moment. Where you all applying for?

So far I've applied for Northumbria and Brunel. There aren't many pre-reg NHS funded courses are there?!?
