Course summary

OTs work closely with people who have an illness, injury or disability to help them live their lives to their full potential. You could be helping a young person with anorexia or an elderly person with mobility issues. The profession is extremely varied and requires ‘out of the box’ thinking alongside professional reasoning. Our course prepares you for an exciting and rewarding career.

You’ll join a community of enthusiastic lecturers and educators and a very active OT Society. You’ll be taught within a multi-professional health school, so you’ll graduate confident in your role and with true insight into the role of others, so that you’re able to contribute to excellent, person-centred, inter-professional practice. You will use your compassion, intelligence and creativity and, in return, you’ll gain a life-long career helping others to overcome setbacks.


Occupational Therapists are qualified to work in a uniquely varied range of settings and our two-year, full-time course will teach you how to apply clinical reasoning, drawing on human sciences, occupational therapy, psychology, sociology and creativity. Respectful relationships with service users are at the heart of OT practice and at the heart of our programme throughout.

Our Master's programme is open to Arts, Science, Healthcare and Humanities Graduates. If you're hoping to pursue a career in Occupational Therapy, our enquiry-based style of learning will shape your understanding of the job and underpin it with knowledge of Human Sciences and therapeutic approaches.

Our active learning approach is designed to engage you cognitively, emotionally and spiritually, so you develop your professional identity as an Occupational Therapist and gain the skills to use yourself therapeutically. Throughout the programme you'll have a personal adviser who will help you reflect on your highs and lows, enabling you to learn from both. And you will learn how to use professional development tools to identify your personal learning needs and goals.

Your time with us will be split between University-based learning and Practice-Based Learning. We have a dedicated placement team which will work closely with your practice partners to set up a balanced range of placement experiences for you. While on placement you will be allocated a dedicated educational supervisor; a qualified Occupational Therapist, who will support you apply your knowledge and gain skills and confidence. They will be experienced in judging your needs and will help you to challenge yourself.


Our assessments are designed to develop and test your communication skills, and your ability to synthesise and articulate knowledge at Master’s level. Assessment methods will include practical skill oral examinations, written essays, reflective accounts, posters and case-management presentations. Your assignments will be marked against the Senate Scale for Master’s-level work, but your practice placements will be marked at undergraduate level as pass/fail, with feedback offered on performance.
