Occupational Therapy Undergraduate Courses

Fulfil your ambitions with a pioneering university which has consistently led the way with new approaches to occupational therapy learning.

We’ll equip you with the skills and knowledge to become a qualified occupational therapist, focusing on the practical, theoretical and interpersonal skills you’ll need to thrive in your new career.

We do this with the aid of our fantastic facilities which include a rehabilitation kitchen, six-bed hospital ward and virtual learning environment. With 95% of our graduates employed or in further study within six months of completing this course, you can be confident in the learning you’ll receive.

“The degree really prepares you for working in any environment”

 

“The highlight so far on the course has definitely been my placement. I was working in forensic mental health in women’s services and it was fantastic. I learnt so much - it really consolidated everything that I learnt in the first year. It was great to put it into practice. The degree really prepares you for working in any environment; it gives you a really broad knowledge of all of the different areas.”
