Course Description

Occupational Therapy is a health and social care profession that supports people experiencing challenges in their health and well-being as a result of injury, illness, life changes or disability.

As an Occupational Therapy graduate you will work collaboratively with individuals to help them set and achieve goals to live their lives to the fullest. You will focus on helping people participate in the roles and activities they aspire, want and need to, despite any challenges they might face.

Occupational Therapists work with children and adults of all ages in a range of settings including health organisations, social care, housing, education, prisons, employment services, voluntary organisations, and in private practice. They work with clients with challenges including mental health problems, physical illnesses or disabilities and learning disabilities or a combination of these.

Course Content

By combining theoretical knowledge with practical experience, this course explores concepts, principles and theories of occupational science, human development, anatomy, physiology, and psychology to develop a strong foundation to practice as an Occupational Therapist. You will develop excellent communication skills and learn to work collaboratively with a range of clients, carers and communities to meet their goals.

Year one is primarily university based, although you will complete your first practice placement. Collaborative inter-professional education, with other health care students, helps you develop invaluable communication and team-building skills and appreciate the roles of other professionals.

In year two you will build on your understanding of theoretical concepts and learn skills to deliver Occupational Therapy with a variety of clients in physical or mental health services, and with clients with learning disabilities or children. You will complete two practice placements, an opportunity to put theory into practice and develop your skills further.

A comprehensive research project in year three also puts your analytical skills to the test, and you will complete another practice placement where you will work with greater autonomy and competency.
