Course summary

This course is a science-based programme that is designed to prepare graduates to work in a variety of settings including health organisations, social care services, housing, education, voluntary organisations or as independent practitioners. The purpose of Occupational Therapy is to enable people to fulfil, or to work towards fulfilling their potential as occupational beings. Occupational therapists promote function, quality of life and the realisation of potential in people who are experiencing occupational deprivation, imbalance or alienation. They believe that activity can be an effective medium for remediating dysfunction, facilitating adaptation and recreating identity. Occupational therapists can work with adults and children of all ages with a wide range of conditions; most commonly those who have difficulties due to a mental health illness, physical or learning disabilities.

The MSc in Occupational Therapy has been designed to develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence to work in range of complex and dynamic health and social care environments with people across the age range. Students on this course are encouraged to appreciate and understand current occupational therapy practice while being critical in their approach to developing new, innovative and evidence-based interventions. There are interprofessional components of the course which are designed to develop practitioners who are professional, compassionate, safe, reflective and autonomous. Working with peers from other professions including physiotherapy, nursing, midwifery and social workers will promote team work, collaboration, and an application of research skills in the transformation of health and social care services. Successful completion of this programme will provide graduates with the eligibility to apply to the HCPC Register as an occupational therapist and membership of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists.

Career and Personal Development: Many registered Occupational Therapists work within the NHS or in social care settings and are recruited and employed by individual organisations. This programme is forward-looking and realises that many occupational therapists and new graduates may also work in non-traditional OT roles or for private and third sector organisations. New, varied and innovative job opportunities are increasingly available to qualified Occupational Therapists, and this programme aims to prepare its graduates accordingly. Non-clinical careers also exist in teaching, research, management and administration, health and safety, and training and development. The experienced teaching team will help you explore and develop your individual career aspirations. Careers Service: The University Careers and Employability Team offer qualified advisors who can work with you to provide tailored, individual support and careers advice during your time at the University. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.
