Course summary

Imagine the satisfaction of helping people reach their true potential, take control of their lives and participate fully in the world around them. With an MSc Occupational Therapy from GCU, that’s exactly what you’ll do. Occupational therapists are skilled professionals who help people of all ages to carry out activities made difficult by physical or mental illness, disability or ageing.

Approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and accredited by both the College of Occupational Therapists and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists, our programme will broaden your experience and give you new insight into caring for patients.

As a graduate of any discipline, you can get a world-class education in occupational therapy with an internationally recognised curriculum. Train in both theory and practice, and prepare to contribute to the common good while also making a positive impact on your future career.

You’ll benefit from the friendly, open and diverse community at GCU – and gain experience in the inter-professional nature of the field by learning side by side with students in physiotherapy, dietetic, nursing and social work.

Graduate prospects

When you graduate from GCU, you’ll be eligible to apply for registration as an occupational therapist with the UK’s Health and Care Professions Council – and you’ll be ready to make a meaningful difference.

Our shared commitment to social responsibility is evident in our international network of alumni, who work with disadvantaged and marginalised groups around the world in hospitals, community settings, charitable organisations and private practice.

Accreditation

The programme is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and accredited by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists.

Assessment methods

We use a wide variety of interesting and challenging assessment methods to help you to develop personally, whilst simultaneously developing your knowledge and understanding of topics integral to occupational therapy practice.
