This is an innovative course and the first of its kind in the UK. You learn about occupational therapy while on placement in the workplace, supported by one or two days a week of academic learning delivered at Sheffield Hallam University. Successfully completing this course makes you eligible to apply for registration with the UK Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Registering with the HCPC enables you to work as an occupational therapist anywhere in the UK.

You learn from a highly respected team who will lead your learning in the core theories and principles of occupational therapy.

You take four periods of practice in occupational therapy health and social care settings and study nine academic modules. Modules you study include:
-Introduction to professional practice.
-Foundations for occupation based practice.
-Leadership and management in occupational therapy.
-Occupational therapy project (practice-based research dissertation).

Your academic modules guide you in developing relevant knowledge and theory that underpins occupational therapy practice, and are assessed through coursework. Throughout the taught modules we use your placement experiences in group discussions to relate theory to practice and enhance critical thinking skills.

You also spend a significant amount of your time in practice-based learning. In the first year, after a six week full-time induction period, you are placed in two different occupational therapy practice placements, each for 13 weeks from February to May and from September to November. You are on placement in these services from Monday to Wednesday, attend the university on Thursdays and normally have some personal study time on Fridays. Your practice in the service is assessed to meet professional requirements.

In the second year, you are on placement part-time for 12 weeks from February to May in a service where they may be no direct occupational therapy involvement but where there is potential for occupational therapy. This may be in the voluntary, independent or private sector. Again your academic study features alongside your practice-based learning. The remainder of the academic year is spent in full-time study and research and you usually attend university for one or two days a week.

Finally you complete a ten-week full-time placement in the early part of your third year as you finish the course. The course team are aware of the commitment that international students make to enable them to study away from their home country and the course is designed to allow sufficient time to have a break to travel.

About the programme

Designed for graduates with an appropriate degree in health, biological or social sciences, nursing or a related subject wishing to change careers, this programme will prepare student nurses for professional registration. There is a strong evidence-based focus which develops existing knowledge and research skills and you will engage in a combination of theory, clinical simulation, reflection, personal development planning and practice learning experiences. Ongoing assessment, practical experience and clinical simulation will develop nurses who are fit-for-practice.

Note: Overseas applicants, in addition, must complete the academic version of the British Council International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test and achieve at least 7.0 in the listening and reading sections, at least 7.0 in the writing and speaking sections and at least an overall score of 7.0 (NMC Circular 1/2007).

Practical experience

Practice learning experiences are available in one of five West of Scotland health boards: NHS Ayrshire and Arran; NHS Dumfries and Galloway; NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde; NHS Lanarkshire and NHS The State Hospital. You will experience the 24 hour/7 day continuum of care which represents contemporary healthcare delivery, enhancing your clinical skills and integrating theory with practice. This also includes private, independent and voluntary organisations.

Your learning

The programme has three parts containing a mixture of theory and practice core modules. There are three 20 credit modules in Part 1 and 2 with Part 3 consisting of a 60 credit theory/practice dissertation module.

The programme aims to prepare student nurses for professional registration, with key components including the delivery of person-centred care, compassionate care, values-based care, the patient safety agenda and professional, legal and ethical issues.

A recognised innovative feature of the programme is the approach of clinical simulation used for skills demonstration, practice, and development throughout the programme which allows you to practise skills in a safe, realistic environment.

Our Careers Adviser says

UWS produces nurses who are fit-for-practice and who will contribute to the leadership of a competent, dynamic workforce. Graduates
secure employment within a range of healthcare areas.

Professional accreditation

This programme is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Graduates are eligible to apply for professional registration within their specific field.

State-of-the-art facilities

Our campuses are equipped with artificial simulated environments with contemporary healthcare technology, where you’ll learn in a realistic context, to put your knowledge into practice. The unpredictability of patient symptoms are mimicked using sophisticated software in a clinical ward setting, ranging from low to high dependency beds.

Investment in the Domus Initiative – an older adult artificial home environment – provides you with experience in caring for older people and dementia care. In a first for the Scottish university sector, we have established A Community Orientated Resource for Nursing (ACORN) where students can practice within a simulated primary care environment.

Lanarkshire and Paisley campuses also provide midwifery students with excellent learning and teaching environments with facilities and equipment that includes a birthing room with maternal simulator and a birthing pool for simulated water births.

Life-changing research

We work jointly with a range of partners, both nationally and internationally, on our research interests, and this directly informs teaching at UWS – which means that you’ll learn from the experts.

Our programmes are informed by practice and all of our academic staff are members of the School’s Institute of Healthcare Policy and
Practice. Some of our most recent initiatives include –

• the launch of a new resource, ‘Jenny’s Diary’, which will provide an invaluable tool for families and practitioners to help people with a learning disability understand their diagnosis of dementia

These courses provide a broad understanding of infectious diseases through the core modules in public health, biostatistics and epidemiology, and the biology and control of infectious diseases which are taken by all students, together with the subsequent opportunities for specialised study in areas of the student’s own choice. Most of the students are in-service health professionals working for example as doctors or laboratory staff, who take the courses in order to acquire new knowledge in infectious diseases, or to update their current expertise.

The Infectious Diseases courses draw upon the School’s long tradition in the study of clinical and epidemiological aspects of infectious and tropical diseases. Providing a broad understanding of infectious diseases, together with developing strategies for their control and treatment, the courses will be of particular relevance to in-service health professionals, such as doctors or laboratory staff who either wish to acquire new knowledge in infectious diseases or update their current expertise.

These courses are aimed both at recent graduates who wish to pursue an advanced degree, and at people who took their first training some time ago and wish to update their knowledge in this rapidly evolving field or who wish to change career direction.

Elective modules (i.e. modules other than the IDM1 modules) are assessed partly by the two-hour unseen written examination (70%) and partly by an assessed assignment (30%), submitted electronically to the School by a set deadline.

Examinations take place once a year in June (please note: it is not possible to hold examinations at other times of year). These are normally held in a student’s country of residence. Details of available examination centres (http://www.londoninternational.ac.uk/community-support-resources/current-students/examinations/examination-centres).

They are arranged mainly through Ministries of Education or the British Council. Students taking distance learning examinations will need to pay a fee to their local examination centre. Please note that if you fail an examination at the first entry you will be allowed one further attempt, if you have failed the module overall.

The study year for most modules runs from the beginning of October through to the June exams, while two modules run from the beginning of January through to assignment submission at the end of August. Tutorial support is available throughout this time. Students carrying out projects are assigned personal supervisors to support their project work which is mostly carried out between June and the end of September in their final year.

Blended learning: taking modules in London

After successful completion of a minimum number of core modules, Postgraduate Diploma and MSc students may also be eligible for the 'blended learning option', which allows for the study of up to two modules only (from a restricted list) at the School in London during the Spring or Summer terms in place of distance learning modules. Please note that these options, and the dates when the modules are held at the School, are subject to change - full details will be sent to all distance learning students in July each year.
