Course summary

This course is for people who want to help others to carry out everyday occupations with greater ease and independence – despite their disabilities, injuries or impediments.

The two year course is specifically designed for people who have already completed previous degree level study, and who can apply their critical thinking skills to the theory and practice of occupational therapy. The course includes four placements to develop skills and confidence in providing occupational therapy in a range of settings and contexts.

The advantages of this course include the breadth of our healthcare expertise and the variety of our placement opportunities.

This course adheres to the professional standards of practice, values and behaviours set out by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Royal College of Occupational Therapists - RCOT, which will allow you to be eligible for professional registration on successful completion of your degree.

Our pre-registration occupational therapy provision has been accredited by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists.

On completion of this course you’ll be ready to seek professional registration with HCPC so that you can work as an occupational therapist with the NHS, social services, charities or private sector employers.

If you choose to continue your studies to a higher level, your experience of postgraduate research will provide an excellent foundation.

Whatever you decide to do, you’ll have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.
