    Glasgow caledonian university emailed me to say that I have been placed on the waiting list. Just wondering if anyone has any information about how many people are placed on the waiting list and if there is a chance of me getting a place. I emailed them to ask if they could give me any further information and they said all they could tell me is that they continue to use the wait list until December. Thanks!

    Hi eilish7, I'm afraid I can't give you any more info about the waiting list, but I got a conditional offer for GCU OT masters for the next session and so have started the negotiated learning module. I have to pass it to get the full offer, so I imagine that the reason why you're waiting is to see who passes/fails the module currently in progress. We're due to get the results mid November, so that would make sense as they've mentioned December to you. I know it doesn't help you directly with your question, but at least you know WHY your waiting! Hope it helps somewhat!

    Hello, I know this was posted a while ago but I am interested in applying to GCU Jan 2019 Occupational Therapy. Did yous end up on the course after all? How are you enjoying it? Also are there many people with unrelated degrees? My undergraduate is English Studies and I am concerned it won't be relevant enough.

    Hi again, Yes I did end up on the course after passing the negotiated learning module. We've only just started classes but so far its good, and we're all excited to learn more in the up and coming weeks! I've only just met my class mates but, so far, there does seem to be a real mix of backgrounds. For example some students have backgrounds you'd expect, like biology or sports and exercise science, but some do have seemingly unrelated degrees. I would say that you're degree in English wouldn't necessarily exempt you from the course, so be positive! I would stress instead the importance of using this year to do your research and get some shadowing placements if possible. Also maybe try and get a job as a support worker or something similar, or volunteer, as this does give you experience in social care and you will be able to bring your experiences into your interview and also into your OT career. Any more questions feel free to ask me! Good luck!
