Course summary

What makes Occupational Therapy MSc (Pre-registration)* at the University of Worcester special?

Occupational therapists play a key role in helping people regain, maintain or improve their participation in life. Often they work with people whose ability to take part in life has been impacted by injury, disability or illness. Occupational therapists also work with individuals and groups whose ability and freedom to take part in life is restricted by other circumstances. This includes those who are detained in prison, or in immigration centres, as well as people who are homeless, or are refugees.

Our MSc Occupational Therapy (Pre-registration) is an accelerated qualifying programme for graduates with a suitable and relevant first degree; it is not suitable for qualified Occupational Therapists.
Successful completion of the course gives you eligibility to apply for registration with Health and Care Professions Council and membership of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (subject to approvals).
The MSc Occupational Therapy will be underpinned with a School-wide commitment to interprofessional learning that aims to develop skilled and compassionate practitioners who have the confidence to engage with and promote professional, social, and political change in health and social care.
The course runs in parallel with the MSc Physiotherapy Therapy (Pre-registration) integrating collaborative working, and evidence-based person-centred practice.
You are supported to gain more than 1,000 hours of practice-based learning in a variety of practice settings.
Our Occupational Therapy BSc achieved 92% Student Satisfaction in the 2020 National Student Survey.
