What has been your favorite part of studying Occupational Therapy?
Placement has to be one of my favorite parts of the course. We are sent out to placement every year during the 3 years of study into different fields and teams.
I have had placements in mental health inpatient, mental health community, Home Assessment Team, Impatient Orthopaedics team.
This experience has given me the best insight of what I will be doing as a future occupational therapist’
What would your advice be to those considering what to do after school?
‘my advice to students making their university course choices would be to not give up on what you want to do and to make sure they understand completely what their chosen careers requires from them. It is better to know before you start the course at university. And of course, love the field you’re in because that’s so important in enjoying your role and future career.
