Build your career in Occupational Therapy - Why Us - University of Derby

Build your career in Occupational Therapy

As a qualified OT you’ve already got the foundations of a rewarding career. But if you’re looking to build on your existing knowledge and strengthen your career prospects, post registration study could be for you.

We understand the demands of juggling a busy working life and personal commitments with study, so we have developed a range of different professional development options for you. From stand alone CPD modules right through to full postgraduate courses up to doctorate level, there’s a course to suit you. Our post registration courses are available part-time, helping you to study whilst working and earning.

Studying a stand-alone CPD module will allow you to focus on an area of health care practice which most interests you without having to commit to a full degree. But if after completing a CPD module you decide that you’d like to move onto to a full postgraduate course we can support you to do that.

We focus on flexibility of study but we never compromise on teaching quality. Our MSc Hand Therapy is accredited by the British Association of Hand Therapists for example. You’ll be taught by an experienced team who are experts in their field. They’ll support you every step of the way to help you achieve your ambitions.
