They are all very different degrees and careers. What are you hoping to gain by asking us? Most people can only give the reason they applied to a certain degree but that won’t necessarily help you. You need to think about what you want out of a future career

what intrests you in them. have you experience in them. maybe see if you can get a taster with each of them. do not do a ucas application with 3 diffrent degrees on it. you wont get into any that way.

Don't apply to uni this year if you don't know what to study. Deciding what you're going to spend 3 years studying and paying for should never be an urgent decision.

Thank you for your help
I am not so keen on nursing but there are more jobs as a nurse at the minute than social work or occupational therapy
If I could do any I would do occupational therapy I think but there are limited job opportunities unfortunately

if occupational therapy is what interests you do that, there will be a role for you after you qualify, dont do nursing because its easier to get a job. you will be miserable unmotivated and could turn into a poor nurse same for the other roles. you must have an interest in them to fully get the best out of your job. try your preferred path and only if that does not work out try another role. but no matter what congrats on wanting to be in the caring professions

"There are more jobs as a nurse" really isn't a reason to do nursing - your heart has to be in it. Please don't go into a healthcare job that your heart's not fully in.

You'll have far better opportunities as a nurse over the others,
To be honest with you ok, your heart must be 100% in doing a healthcare career as otherwise don't do it.

Thank you - I think I will apply for occupational therapy rather than nursing!
I just would like a job after uni but after looking on the nhs job website there seems to be a few occupational therapy around the UK

You welcome ok

You chose the best one that suits you over things like" there seems to few Occupionational therapist " as every job is necessary part of healthcare.
There's reasons why there's not enough people in certain jobs in NHS.
