    Hello! I thought I'd start a thread for 2017 pre-reg hopefuls for occupational therapy as there isn't one at the moment!

    Hey I have applied for Msc SLT courses at reading, ucl and sheffield, and now thinking of also applying to essex but it is 'pre-reg'. What does this mean? The courses seem exactly the same so just want to check that it is the same kind of thing, that you take the course and then are qualified as a speech and laguage therapist. thanks!

    Hiya - this is actually a thread for OTs but the same applies anyway As I understand it, 'pre-reg' courses are for people whose bachelor degrees did not qualify them for the course they want to do their MSc in. For example, if you studied BA English you would take the pre-reg MSc SLT to qualify, whereas if you studied BSc SLT, you might take a post-reg MSc SLT to further your studies and specialise. Generally, most MSc SLT and OT courses will be pre-reg, but I think that only universities that offer both pre- and post- reg will specify 'pre-reg' in the title. Either way, if the course description suggests that it's for 'newbies', you're probably safe. I hope this makes sense!

    Hi,

    Have any of you guys got any idea how the funding for these MSc health conversion courses will work in terms of funding?
    They're MSc's but now allied health degrees get second degree funding- is it funded like a masters or like a first BSc?

    Many thanks,
    Georgia

    Hi Georgia - do you mean in terms of fees or maintenance? There's a big question mark over whether the NHS will be funding health professional masters courses next year, as the bachelors have been cut off already (apart from doctors and dentists). Most unis I spoke to don't know yet, but some said they were fairly sure there would be funding for one more year. In terms of maintenance funding (or fee funding if the NHS stop paying the fees), you can get low interest loans similar to undergrad loans these days as long as you haven't already done a postgrad course. Annoyingly I've already done one so will have to get a professional development loan instead. The gov pay the interest until I graduate but after then the repayments are high! Boo.

    Hi I'm an American student applying to OT schools in the US and in the UK. For the UK I've applied to Brunel, Essex, and Brighton (and LSBU but I didn't have GCSEs or my high school diploma handy so I withdrew my app). So far I've only heard back from Brunel, and had my interview via skype with them.

    My undergrad degree was in Linguistics and Psychology with a minor in Disability studies. What did all of you study for your first degree?

    I hope that I can learn more from all of you, and possibly meet some of you this fall!
