This course will provide you with the skills and knowledge that you will require to work as an occupational therapist in a range of human service settings. You will learn to analyse why people do certain things and how their behaviour influences their health. You will also develop an appreciation of how people’s lives can be shaped by their environment and culture and how these factors can impact on their health.

Year One will provide an introduction to occupational therapy. You will study a range of modules and go on a practice placement. Placements are a key element of the course and take place each year, giving you the opportunity to put what you are learning into practice and to work with a wide range of individuals including children, older people, disabled people and people with a mental health problem.

In Year Two you will focus on how to plan interventions and work with other team members. During Year Three, you will experience a range of teaching methods which include interactive lectures, workshops, group work and self directed learning activities. Year Four is largely geared towards independent and directed study and preparing you for practice. You will be encouraged to debate and appraise innovations in practice.

We have implemented an Interprofessional Education (IPE) focus within all of our UG healthcare courses to help produce graduates who are confident in their own professional identity but with additional skills that will allow them to work as effective team members. The IPE component will develop your mutual understanding of roles, expertise and values of other team members; skills and strategies in working in teams; problem solving, team decision making skills; role flexibility; and ability to learn from others.
Structure:You study for an Honours degree over four years. You will complete a range of modules, as outlined , each year.
