    Hi,i'm just wondering what people have done for work experience to get into occupational therapy. My Bsc was in psychology and I have been working in a special school and also a mental health hospital. I have just began shadowing a pediatric occupational therapist in the evenings, just basic observations while shes in session. Will this be enough or any advice on how to be successful to get chosen on the course? Thanks.

    That sounds like a lot of experience, especially if you are currently employed within the additional needs or mental health settings. Any experience within any health and social care environment is relevant. Obviously shadowing OTs is beneficial, but it's also worthwhile spending time with other professionals to be exposed to diversity / know that OT is the career for you.
