Kerry Langford-Rotton

"I'm really enjoying learning about occupational therapy again. Occupations are all around us, this is essential stuff."

Ruth Solomons

"The experience is very demanding but the tutors are extremely helpful and are available by email, telephone or one to one by arrangement. It's hard work but very rewarding and takes dedication as the study is self directed."
