Mr Lee Bebbington
BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy
I started my studies at Wrexham Glyndwr University in 2010 as a part time Occupational Therapy undergraduate student. It took me four year but, I graduated in 2014 and was so proud of my achievement.
Glyndwr University helped to prepare me for the world of work, given the robust and in depth training that the degree course offered me. The fantastic support of all the tutors was invaluable and the well thought out student placements gave me the perfect knowledge and experience to prepare me for a job in Occupational Therapy. The interesting course content helped me to stay engaged and interested to learn.
I am currently a Specialist Occupational Therapist within a forensic mental health setting and my career highlight to date has been securing a more senior clinical position within 3 years of qualifying.
Studying at Glyndwr has helped me to become more confident academically enabling me to become more confident in my role as an Occupational Therapist. I had been out of education for approximately 23 years before the access course and degree course. The support given to me by my course leader and tutors was totally invaluable. Being out of education for so long was a massive leap into the unknown and over the years of the course there was a noticeable improvement in my confidence.
I chose to study at Wrexham Glyndwr University due to the reputation of the course
The Welsh bursary I was given and following a University Open day the staff were so friendly and supportive it just seemed like the perfect place for me to study.
I was a diligent student but always brought a sense of humour to my lectures as most of my cohort were also juggling family life and work life keeping it light hearted was important for me to stay focused.
I would recommend undertaking a course at Glyndwr University because it’s a very supportive learning environment, the range of resources students have access too makes studying a lot easier and if you’re studying on a vocational course and working at the same time it is easy to travel to from all over Wales Wirral and Cheshire
My advice to anyone considering studying at Glyndwr University “I’m not saying it will be an easy ride studying, but it certainly is worth a try.”
