    Hi there.

    I'm currently studying Applied Nutritional Sciences BSc (Hons), and was just writing to see if anyone can help me with my future...

    I'm debating doing a Postgraduate Diploma in either Dietetics or Occupational Therapy.

    My reasoning for Dietetics is that I'm currently studying Nutrition and it's always been of interest; even if I despise chemistry. In addition, the dietetics qualification allows me to do much more in terms of job prospects i.e. can apply for the NHS / working visa in Australia.

    Although, I was also looking at Occupational Therapy PGDip. This course seems to resonate with me slightly more than dietetics as it is out and about, and a job whereby no two days will be the same. This massively interests me as a keen people person.

    So my prime questions are:
    - what job has better career prospects?
    - what job has a higher earning potential throughout a career?
    - what job will suit my personality more (tend to absolutely hate chemistry if i'm honest ((though will it feature massively throughout a dietetics career?)), a people person, outgoing etc)

    Thanks in advance!

    in my opinion, i'd try to do an apprenticeship in occupational therapy if that's the path you'd like to go down. the nhs are starting apprenticeships in ot this year so i'd recommend you look into it
