Our unique and flexible MSc in Occupational Therapy programme is about knowing, doing and becoming a registered Occupational Therapist. Combining virtual classroom learning alongside blocks of practical/seminar learning on campus, it provides a fast–track pathway through to employment via a two-year, full-time route as well as a more flexible part-time option taking three years.

The curriculum will encompass the key NHS and policy drivers and thoughts on present and future practice delivery.
