      The course itself could be more organised. I felt unprepared when it came to doing assignments and the course structure wasn't to my liking. It might have works for others but it seemed very slow paced and then bam! We'll teach you all of this and give you all your assignments in the last 2 weeks!

      Course

      With full time (30+hours a week) lectures and placements of an average of 10 weeks at a time, studying occupational therapy is intense. However, the genuine enthusiasm our lecturers feel towards the profession is infectious and makes them a joy to learn from. Assessments are spread across the year which makes writing them less stressful than it could otherwise be. Feedback is fair, and tutors are willing to clarify as required.

      Decided to live in current location due to proximity to university. Very expensive for the house but very quiet too
