I applied to a uni for Occupational Therapy BSc and I wrote to the disability office at the uni this week to let them know my issues. This is the responce:
Your email has been forwarded to me as I am the mental health adviser in the Disability and Dyslexia Service.
I agree that it is best to be honest about your diagnosis and, providing you are well and fit to study and practise, this will not affect your chances of being offered a place on the course.
Hopefully the episode you had will not recur but should you find that you have further psychotic symptoms or any other mental health issues it is good to be aware of the support available.
If your mental health did start to impact on your studies, you may be entitled to some adjustments and additional support. Further information is available here: xxxx
If you are successful in securing a place at xxxx then it would be a good idea for us to meet, once you have enrolled, to discuss whether you may benefit from any support at university, be that in lectures, exams or any other element of your course.
If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
I thought this was quite a thoughtful responce. I would love to be able to get onto the course more than anything.
