Overview

Gain the skills to become a professional occupational therapist, able to deliver and evaluate occupational therapy in a range of settings.

This programme is underpinned by an understanding of humans as occupational beings, the relationship between occupation and health, models of occupation, occupational science and occupational justice.

You will learn how to carry out occupational therapy assessments and interventions with people from across the lifespan and with a range of physical, mental and social difficulties, such as dementia, stroke, homelessness or unemployment. Your learning experience will include problem-based tutorials, journal clubs, creative and practical sessions, self-directed learning and research. You will be required to undertake a minimum of 1,000 hours of professional practice under the supervision and direction of experienced occupational therapists. 

Research Excellence Framework 2014
Research Excellence Framework 2014: 20% of our research in the Public Health, Health Services and Primary Care unit is world leading or internationally excellent.
You will participate in a wide range of learning experiences including problem / task based tutorials, creative and practical sessions, self-directed learning and research. In addition to university based learning, you will undertake a minimum of 1,000 hours of professional practice under the supervision of experienced occupational therapists.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

Dr Rob Brooks
Course Director
Previously an occupational therapist for children and young people, Rob has published literature on children's play and spoken internationally about occupation and young people.
I am passionate about how occupational therapists and students can collaborate in research. My own qualitative research was based on my practice in child and adolescent mental health, and I am working with students and clinicians to generate research that could make a real difference to occupational therapy practice.
