    Just got accepted to University of Essex last week! I'm from the United States and wanted some advice on what happens after I graduate and going through the OTED process to come back to the US.

    Anyone else get accepted to Essex for 2018?

    Thanks,

    I'm also from the U.S. and just got accepted to Brunel for the MSc but they are accredited in the U.S. and I won't have to go through the OTED process but I did look into it when I was considering going through the process. On a facebook group I'm in I was taking to a girl who went to school in Australia and she said that you have to take some continuing education classes to make up for anything your program doesn't cover that is covered in the U.S. since O.T. practice is slightly different in each country.

    Also, did you apply to Brunel? You should consider if not. You wouldn't have to worry about going through that process (which it also expensive) if you did. But still worth it and doable if you don't. Best of Luck!

    I saw that Brunel was accredited in the U.S. actually working on my personal statement to give them to now. Fingers crossed I get an interview from them too. If not, definitely excited I at least got into somewhere this year and won't mind having to take a few extra classes as long as I get my Master's in Occupational Therapy. I have been trying to get into the states for the past two years and just has not worked out for me.

    What Facebook group are you using?

    Thanks,

    Danielle
