Course summary

Introduction

Join our two-year pre-registration Masters course in Occupational Therapy, validated by the HCPC. Study in Chelmsford or Cambridge.

Occupational therapists help people to live, not just exist – enabling them to do the things they need and want to do, and regain quality of life.

Occupational therapy is a growing healthcare role in the UK. With an increase in patients with long-term and complex health needs, alternative treatment pathways are essential to provide a framework of options to support patients. Our pre-registration Masters degree will prepare you to join this area.

Our full-time Masters degree is open to graduates with excellent communication skills, who are resourceful, practically minded, comfortable in various environments and want to support people regain their lives. We welcome applications from positive, motivated and solution-focused people from a variety of backgrounds.

TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT

In Year 1 you’ll get to grips with the fundamental skills of an occupational therapist. We’ll equip you with the knowledge that you need, to be successful on your placements and gain confidence in your abilities to assess and manage conditions and impairments.

Assessment types for this course include: MCQ, short answer and SBA exams; practical clinical examinations (OSCE); critical writing; presentations; patchwork text; reflective writing; and Placement Assessment Documents (PAD).

In Year 2, you’ll continue to spend time out on placement, as well as learning how to critically evaluate evidence and apply evidenced based practice in healthcare. You’ll also have the opportunity to complete a Service Improvement Plan, as we prepare you for your future as an occupational therapist.
