Occupational Therapy BHSc (Hons)

Occupational Therapy studentsApplicants to the Occupational Therapy degree programme who are offered an interview will have met the entry requirements with both their qualifications (or potential qualifications) and their personal statement.

A successful personal statement needs to reflect interest in Occupational Therapy and experience or knowledge of the subject, drawing on skills that will be transferable to the course.

Interviews are conducted in groups of approximately eight applicants with two members of staff and will include the following:

  • Opportunity to share with the group the motivation for wanting to study Occupational Therapy.
  • Opportunity to identify personal qualities that they will bring to the profession
  • A group discussion relating to the challenges of the programme and how these might be managed.
  • A short written task.
  • A smaller group activity involving preparing a short presentation.

All this will take around an hour.
