Thank you in advance to anyone who actually manages to read this :) I left school at 16 (I live in the UK) and wanted to go to college to get some A-levels. Everything went direly wrong for me and I ended up homeless and unable to afford to live and go to college. Fast forward 6 years and I am now a Open University student. I have completed the 1st year towards a Bsc (hons) Physical sciences and I now have 3 years to go. I am interested in medical physics and the OU do a Msc in medical physics. During all of this I don't have a placement year so would it be worthwhile getting a part time job at the hospital or a carehome (I haven't seen any jobs in the medical physics department). The jobs which I could apply for would be a cleaner or nursing auxiliary. Also is there anything else which would help me to get a job in this field? Thank you.
