Course summary

This course is designed to equip you to develop into being a reflective, autonomous occupational therapist with a wide range of skills including communication, activity analysis, therapeutic interventions, entrepreneurship and research. Occupational Therapists are trained to work with children and adults of all ages in both physical and mental health settings who are experiencing a variety of difficulties and problems. The purpose of occupational therapy intervention is to enable people to participate in the activities of daily life or the occupations that are important to them. You will be taught by skilled staff who are all registered Occupational Therapists with specialist clinical and research areas of expertise. All maintain clinical practice and/or advisory roles alongside their teaching responsibilities. They are involved with a variety of professional boards, committees and research projects and have presented their work at national and international conferences. Throughout the programme you will be encouraged to become an independent learner with a variety of teaching methods used including lectures, practical workshops, groupwork, interactive seminars, online discussions and practice placements. We also deliver some joint sessions with other health and social care students here within the university and with international occupational therapy students.

There are a wide variety of assessments including: Essays; Group projects; Viva presentations; Research project; Poster presentations; Practical placements. The Careers & Zone at Wrexham Glyndŵr University is there to help you make decisions and plan the next steps towards a bright future. From finding work or further study to working out your interests, skills and aspirations, they can provide you with the expert information, advice and guidance you need. Graduates will be able to register as an Occupational Therapist with the Health Professions Council, entitling them to work in a variety of health and social care settings both in the UK and abroad. Many graduates find employment in the NHS, social services, third sector and in private practice. Students go on to work in a range of areas such as working with people with complex needs, acute health needs, mental health issues or learning disabilities. Our graduates have also taken up opportunities to work overseas. If you would like to progress your studies further or pursue a research career then you can continue onto Masters and Doctoral level study at Wrexham Glyndwr University.
