    Hello!

    Just wondering who is starting their first year of Occupational Therapy at Coventry in September? Would be nice to get acquainted with some people prior to the start of the course.

    I am happy to say my UCAS status has changed from conditional to unconditional offer for Coventry University so I will be starting an Occupational Therapy degree this September . I am a mature student but lets not go there lol although I understand Coventry University welcomes mature students.

    It only took me 2 years to get to this point as I got rejected across the board last year. Its been worth the wait as whilst waiting to reapply it enabled me to obtain voluntary experience and gain credits studying distance learning courses all within the related field of occupational therapy. Studying, in particular, has allowed me to practice writing assignments in readiness for the degree as been out of education for 15 years.

    It's been hard work and a lot of sacrifices made along the way to get to this point not to mention the amount of gruelling interview assessment days I've had to attend last year and this year as part of the application process. My advice to anyone wanting to do a degree, particularly one which is a popular program with limited places, is to grab the opportunity with both hands if an unconditional offer is presented to you and appreciate the potential opportunities that offer could provide.
