Why choose this course?
Would you like to work with people in a creative and empowering way? Our BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy programme may be ideal for you.
Occupational Therapists are trained to work with children and adults of all ages in both physical and mental health settings who are experiencing a variety of difficulties and problems. The purpose of occupational therapy intervention is to enable people to participate in the activities of daily life or the occupations that are important to them.
This course is designed to equip you to develop into being a reflective, autonomous occupational therapist with a wide range of skills including communication, activity analysis, therapeutic interventions, entrepreneurship and research.
You will be taught by skilled staff who are all registered Occupational Therapists with specialist clinical and research areas of expertise. All maintain clinical practice and/or advisory roles alongside their teaching responsibilities. They are involved in a variety of professional boards, committees and research projects and have presented their work at national and international conferences.
Throughout the programme, you will be encouraged to become an independent learner with a variety of teaching methods used including lectures, practical workshops, group work, interactive seminars, online discussions and practice placements. We also deliver some joint sessions with other health and social care students here within the university and with international occupational therapy students.
Your employability is a focus throughout and the combination of academic and placement experience will mean you develop both professionally and personally over the course of your study.
