I know the feeling but hey lets relax we will be fine. I've actually got 3 interviews for BSc Occupational therapy. coming up in Coventry Uni, Univ of Worcester and Univ of Wolverhampton. i was wondering if someone has done interview recently in these schs and willing to share his experience.

I'd be interested to hear about your interview experience for OT at Leeds. I have mine next week (only found out today!) and feeling rather nervous about it.

hi, I had my interview about a few weeks ago and it's quite simple they just ask you why occupational therapy? and scenario questions about what would you do but they did mention that they were looking for someone who is keen to learn and is passionate about the course rather than the correct answer so you can get some questions wrong. (: p.s. I got a cnditional offer!!!

Hey! Can you give me advice on interview for Bradford??
hey fortunately they went well. nothing daunting at all!! i’d say just be very aware about what OT is and what a career in OT would look like. also if you’re passionate about OT then really let it show, they look for candidates that are keen about OT so just make sure that that is you! i got all conditional offers and deciding between huddersfield and liverpool as my firm. have you applied elsewhere?

oh haha definitely they’ll take some time. maybe try calling/chasing it up but that’s great you got an unconditional from bradford! have you already got a level grades or are you sitting exams this year? and which from the two are you wanting to go to more?

I took a gap year because I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do! And bradford university said they really appreciated that I did that. And I only applied to these 2 universities. What about you??
haha sounds like we're in the same boat! i also took a gap year as i was unsure if i wanted to do speech and language therapy, physiotherapy or occupational therapy. i came to the choice of the latter. i applied at huddersfield, liverpool and bradford. debating between hudds and liv but probably will go to hudds to save accommodation costs. which from the two is your preference?

As I applied after the deadline I only wanted to go to 2 uni tbh. I’ve applied to bradford and Huddersfield. Got an offer at bradford but I completely understand what you mean when you say save costs. Even though bradford isn’t far I’d rather go Huddersfield. But I’m happy to go Bradford too!

Are you from Huddersfield?
no im not far from huddersfield though hbu? yeah hudds just would be much better. have you had an interview for it yet? oh right applying after the deadline can cause delays in responses so its amazing you got bradford. is it unconditional?
