Edinburgh Napier University is a unique place to study Occupational Therapy

Edinburgh and its surrounding areas have been a significant location for Occupational Therapy professional development over the past century. During the First World War, our Craiglockhart campus was a military psychiatric hospital for officers suffering from ‘shell shock’. The internationally renowned War Poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen were patients there. The hospital was known for its ‘work cure’, elements of which can be traced to the development of Occupational Therapy as we know it today. The embryonic profession of Occupational Therapy was later established at the Astley Ainslie Hospital and the Council Meeting of the first ‘World Federation of Occupational Therapists’ was held in Edinburgh in 1954 and again in 1992.

At Edinburgh Napier University we aim to continue this tradition of Occupational Therapy professional development. Edinburgh Napier University is recognised as a University that is professional, ambitious, innovative and inclusive.

Assessments

A range of formative and summative assessment approaches are adopted throughout the course. These will include practical examinations, written essays, reflective activities and presentations.

Careers

The course aims to enable students to be innovative, provide leadership and prepare them to register as an Occupational Therapist, ready to work in the NHS, private, local authority and third sector organisations.
