Hi I have applied to LSBU and have an interview soon. Could you please let me know what kind of questions came up and how long after you received an offer? Thank you!

Hey so my bad - got totally mixed. Haven't heard back from LSBU yet but no one has, with your interview invite they would have sent an FAQ which says when you'll hear.

I had the interview back in December so I've forgotten bits of the interview honestly. It was with one lecturer (mine was course lead) and one clinician. They asked the standard questions about what is OT, why do I want to be one, time I've worked in a group etc. They also asked one scenario question but this will be different for everyone - just think about it and answer as honestly as possible.

Sorry I can't be more help, it was just so many months ago that it is difficult to keep the interview events straight/

Good luck!

Ah well congrats! I had my interview beginning of March, and they said they will let us know by March 31st! Just getting concerned this is going to be a no acceptance as it’s taking a while, and aware people have already got accepted

Congratulations!
I was going to apply to Brunel, Brighton and Coventry. Also was going to apply to LSBU but they just closed application .... Can I ask if you had any prior “work experience” ?

I’ve been doing volunteer work with a charity since august. My experience is limited but I am still at uni, and the courses expect less work experience this year due to the pandemic.

Hey! I got an offer from Brunel and I am waiting to hear back from the others. Did you accept all your offers? I'm just confused as what happens if I want to cancel after the 14 day period..

Hi, congrats on the offer! I declined the ones I definitely knew I didn’t want to go to, but accepted the ones I did. I reckon you can cancel after the 2 week period, but I think I read you need to supply a reason as to why you’re cancelling, and if you do it too near the start of the course there’s a fee. The other unis won’t know if you accept somewhere, so there’s no issue with that at postgrad.
