My predicted grades are D*, C and a C.
I am not bothered about staying local as I want some freedom for once
Where are the places I could go to?
However, there is an option via a HNC which would then get you into 2nd year. So you might need to look towards doing a HNC first. Or an Access course might be an option as well.
Although I suspect you are based in England and for funding you may well do better staying in England.
I would try to contact the local OT department and see if you can have a chat with them about what they do as this is often a topic in interviews for uni places.
I chose QMU as I live in Edinburgh so I have no need to change accommodation and as I am considered Scottish I get my fees paid for me. I did consider GCU but they have larger classes and I felt I wanted the smaller class sizes. (If I had gone to GCU I would have commuted rather than moved across there).
For Scottish uni's we can be sent anywhere (in Scotland) for placement, I'm in 3rd year (of 4 years) and we have our 3rd-year placement at the start of January and I am going up to Dingwall (its a wee bit north of Inverness) and one of my classmates is going to Shetland - it doesn't matter about the high probability of snow.
