@julieannelowe1 @alisonlaverfaw That is interesting, quite a few unis has reported lower numbers. #otalk
Orla @orlatheot
@Kirstie_OT I would encourage more links with OTs in practice outside of our time on placement #OTalk

@Kirstie_OT Absolutely! I couldn't have done the MSc without funding, it was already a big decision to leave full time employment #OTalk #brokestudent

RT @shazzajamie: @Kirstie_OT #otalk chose OT after sudden life crisis in my 40's. I needed to make positive changes out of adversity. Life skills applied to OT.

RT @alisonlaverfaw: @MMShiells #OTalk our role emerging placements have led to students getting their first posts in new OT service areas

@HelenArnfieldOT @MMShiells #OTalk quite a few of our students do Health Care Assistant bank posts when studying. Bank working gives flexibility - useful for placements

RT @SensationalOT: @Kirstie_OT Sadly, yes. If it's not commissioned, NHS OTs can't do it & then we can't show it to our students- I always model enthusiasm tho #OTalk

@SophieMaynard8 @Kirstie_OT If you are in US, you would have paid crazy $$$. I think $150K USD if you want to do masters w/ clinical doctorate. #otalk

@Kirstie_OT #OTalk As a EU student, I have to work part-time as well as studying so hopefully this won't affect my performance. So far it has worked well
Bethany💙 @BethjmOT
@Kirstie_OT However, I can understand how funding could impact on other peoples decisions including mature students which is a shame #OTalk
Beverley Goodman @OTBev
@ChloeVincett @Kirstie_OT And that would have been a real loss to the profession!! It's definitely off-putting to students who come with such varied experience #OTalk

@SophieMaynard8 @Kirstie_OT And it will be even worse if we make doctorate as point of entry in 10 years. More people with 150-200k usd in debt! #otalk
