Occupational Therapy 2021 applicantsWatch
Hi, I am a mature student looking to apply to study Occupational Therapy at Southampton University (my first choice), Bournemouth University (second choice), Oxford Brookes (3rd choice), UWE Bristol (4th choice) and London South Bank University as my last choice. I have not managed to get experience as during the time that I was looking for a work placement everything started getting more serious with Covid-19. I did get replies from a few organisations though and I was due to do a work placement in the hospital but that got cancelled. What Universities are you planning to apply to study at? I am hoping all this mess with the restrictions and lockdown have settled down for 2021 since a huge portion of the degree involves placements.
Hi all, planning on studying in 2021. I’ve applied for Northumbria, Sunderland and New College Durham (podiatry), but deferred a year. I’m a mature student based in Newcastle with a child on the way and a house, so I can’t move to study! I have my Northumbria interview tomorrow!
Hi good luck! Hope it goes well. Can i ask why you've already applied and have your interview, if your going to be going to uni in 2021?
So you apply for a place in 2021 now, you just choose 2021 as your start year. My wife and I have a baby due in October and we've agreed me starting uni while we have a newborn would be a bit much. We'll have less income next year when my wife is on maternity leave, as well, and I have a well paid job now- so it makes sense to wait until 2021.
Does anyone have any advice/tips for applying, gaining experience?
