This two year accelerated course will prepare you for a career as an occupational therapist. Our use of problem based learning will support you to become an autonomous learner, global in your outlook, socially responsible and self aware. Upon completion, you can seek professional registration. Both the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT) accredit this course.
As part of the course, you will:
- Undertake at least 1000 hours of clinical practice in a variety of areas. These could include health, social care, education or third sector. A registered occupational therapist will supervise all clinical practice.
- Consider the complex relationships between occupation and health and wellbeing. Learn to critique the application of occupational therapy practice models and occupational science.
- Develop the ability to carry out occupational therapy assessments and interventions. In doing so, you'll enable people with a range of difficulties to fully engage in their everyday life
When you graduate, you'll know how to develop and deliver contemporary occupational therapy. In your career, you'll be able to evaluate the changing landscape of the profession and seek opportunities for its development.
