I'm looking for a bit of advice.
I did my undergrad in Speech and language therapy and I graduated in 2011. I didn't persue this as a career and have been working in education for the past 4 years. I have now decided that I'm ready to return to university and I'd like to apply for OT.
I've looked at postgrad courses in OT, and there's plenty of them available, for which I am now applying. However, I was wondering if I should hedge my bets by also applying for undergrad courses (sometimes at the same uni) or if this would be a bad idea?
I would prefer graduate entry because the course is a year shorter but I am now starting to worry that universities will look unfavorably on my application as I will be 6 years out of education.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? Or does anyone have any advice

I don't think there's anything wrong in hedging your bets and applying for undergrad degrees too, universities won't care (I doubt they will even know - undergraduate and postgraduate admissions are usually administered by different people, even in the same department).
