Course content

This course will provide you with an enriching, dynamic educational experience that combines traditional teaching with the advancement of key clinical skills to produce professionals that are equally adept in the practical and theoretic aspects of occupational therapy.

Our traditional classroom teaching will expand your awareness of the sector’s principle themes and challenges, and allow you to develop general professional abilities like report writing, research techniques and critical thinking skills.

Our teaching incorporates the excellent grounding in biological and social sciences that our undergraduate programme is renowned for and we will encourage you to undertake research to develop the evidence base of the profession whilst providing you with opportunities to learn alongside master’s students from our other Allied Healthcare programmes.

You will also be offered a variety of practice placement opportunities which include extended part-time and elective roles that will feature in your first and second year of studies. This will help you develop your clinical skills, and stimulate your leadership, communication and patient care abilities which will all be vital to your career in the future.
