Course summary

The Occupational Therapy course provides you with a mixture of research informed teaching and practical experience.

There are no written exams as we believe that an oral exam (viva) completed in your final practice setting allows you to demonstrate your ability to verbalise your knowledge and theoretical understanding, reflecting the skills you will require once qualified.Undertaking one at each level of study, our professional practice placements are perfectly timed (7, 10 and 12 weeks) to consolidate University learning, across a range of traditional and innovative settings.A teaching team of more than 30 research-active, clinical specialist, registered occupational therapists support and develop your learning.
