    I've just finished GCSE's and are hoping to go to college in September to study Psychology, Sociology and Photography. I want to do Occupational Therapy however I don't want to go to University, does anyone know if i would be able to do Occupational Therapy through an apprenticeship or traineship? Thank you!

    I am afraid that Occupation therapy is a professional course, so you need a registration from the Collage of Occupational Therapists to practice in the UK and all other countries. The "pin" or registration can only be applied for with a Degree in Occupational Therapy. You can be an Assistant or an Occupational Therapy Technician without a degree, but to become an actual Therapist requires a Degree.
