The Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) prepares graduates for clinical practice in the profession of occupational therapy.

Occupational therapists work with their clients to overcome barriers that may be preventing them from participating more fully in life. This might involve teaching alternative techniques to achieve a given task, or facilitating improvement of skills. Occupational therapists collaborate with family and carers where needed, and typically work in teams with other health professionals.

The course is a graduate-entry program (students are required to have completed an undergraduate degree prior to entry), however the MOT is designed to accommodate all suitably qualified candidates regardless of their previous discipline. If you already have a background in health you will be able to take on electives of your choice, while those without such experience will be required to take prescribed electives.

As the course leads to eligibility to practise, students will be assisted in achieving prescribed professional competencies through practical and theoretical skill acquisition and clinical fieldwork placements. Clinical placements are undertaken in both the public and private sectors. Students will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of the career path they have chosen, and its place in contemporary health.

The pace of work in the MOT is commensurate with the expectations of postgraduate study, as is the level and complexity of the issues dealt with in the degree, including research project design.

The Master of Physiotherapy (MPhty) course prepares graduates for professional practice as physiotherapists.

Physiotherapists use highly-developed clinical reasoning skills to assess, diagnose and treat people with movement problems caused by a wide variety of joint, muscle, nerve and metabolic disorders. They use a range of drug-free techniques to treat and prevent injuries, and assist their clients to maintain fit and healthy bodies. The focus of physiotherapy is upon patient-centred care.

The core areas of the MPhty course are introductory and advanced musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiopulmonary physiotherapy, applied to patients across the lifespan. Biomechanics, occupational health and community health are incorporated in various units of study; and evidence-based practice and professional practice are embedded throughout the curriculum. Students will also undertake university-organised clinical practice placements in the second year of the course. The skills required to practice advanced clinical reasoning are progressively developed during the course.

The course is a graduate-entry program, which means students are required to have completed an undergraduate degree prior to entry. As the MPhty degree confers eligibility for registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), which is required to practice as a physiotherapist in Australia, students will be assisted in achieving prescribed professional competencies through practical and theoretical skill acquisition and clinical fieldwork placements.

Clinical placements are undertaken in both the public and private sectors. These placements further the opportunities to develop an understanding of the practice of physiotherapy, and its place in the contemporary health system.

As part of this course eligible students also have the opportunity to take part in the ‘FHS Abroad' program which involves academic study and a 4-6 week placement with non-government organisations and other development agencies in one of a small number of countries in South and South East Asia. This experience (valued at 6 credit points) enables students to gain a real understanding of global health and make a lasting difference to communities worldwide.

The pace of work in the MPhty is demanding and is commensurate with the expectations of postgraduate study; as is the level and complexity of the issues dealt with in the degree.

The Master of Physiotherapy course is taught by academics who are world-leaders in their fields and who bring their research into the classroom so that students are exposed to cutting-edge knowledge. In this manner, the University of Sydney Master of Physiotherapy course is characterised by research-enriched teaching and learning and hence has a very strong evidence-base.

To be an excellent strength and conditioning coach requires a wide knowledge across several domains and a number of different skill sets. Read more
To be an excellent strength and conditioning coach requires a wide knowledge across several domains and a number of different skill sets. These include:
-An extensive “toolbox” of training exercise and interventions
-An understanding of movement and the ability to teach movement
-An understanding of how the body adapts to training and how to organise training to maximise desirable adaptations
-An ability to coach
-The ability to understand various sources of evidence (including scientific evidence) and use it to inform your practice

The MSc in Strength and Conditioning has been designed with these demands in mind, and aims to support students in developing as excellent strength and conditioning coaches.

Why St Mary's?

St Mary’s is widely recognised as an international leader in strength and conditioning education. We were the first UK institution to offer a BSc in strength and conditioning, and this MSc was the first part time, distance learning course in strength and conditioning in the UK. In recent years the university has invested £250,000 in a state of the art Performance Education Centre which is unrivalled as a facility for strength and conditioning education.

The staff at St Mary’s include both highly experienced coaches and expert sport scientists. In addition, our adjunct faculty is comprised of some of the most highly regarded practitioners in the world. All of the course material is designed for the strength and conditioning degree alone, which ensures that the practical relevance of the scientific evidence to the strength and conditioning coach is always fully explored.

The distance learning nature of this course has several advantages for professionals. Principal among these is the opportunity to combine study with practical work experience, thus allowing the translation of science into practice. In addition, you can organise your study around your own personal schedule. You can download lectures and watch them at times that suit you.

A Student View

Crofton Alexander (Wasps Strength and Conditioning Coach)
"Having already started a career in professional strength and conditioning with London Wasps prior to commencing the MSc, I was hoping that St Mary's MSc Strength and Conditioning programme would be stimulating, thought provoking and a challenge to my current philosophy.

"In all honesty, it did more than that and I can definitely say that this programme has raised my strength and conditioning practices to the next level."

Course Content

All modules have a credit value of 20, except for the research project which has a credit value of 60. With the exception of the Advanced Sport and Exercise Physiology module, all modules are assessed by a variety of types of coursework. To qualify for the diploma you need to accrue 120 credits. To qualify for the certificate you need to accrue 60 credits.

Modules will be offered according to staff availability and student uptake. Details of the core modules offered are presented below. Whilst every effort is made to accommodate student preferences we do require at least three students to register for a module to make it viable.

Module Information
› Practical Techniques in Strength and Conditioning
› Research Methods and Evidence Based Practice
› Biomechanics and Skill Acquisition in Strength and Conditioning
› Physiology of Training
› Programme Design, Planning and Monitoring

Please note: All information is correct at the time of publication. However, course content is regularly updated and this may result in some changes, which will be communicated to students before their programme begins.

Career Prospects

In today’s marketplace, employers are seeking to employ staff who are suitably qualified to undertake their roles and responsibilities. As such, there is an increased need for postgraduate programmes to be vocationally orientated, with an emphasis on training students in the theoretical underpinnings and relevant practical areas to work in the sport industry.

The MSc / PG Diploma programme focuses on disciplines pertinent to the field of strength and conditioning. These disciplines are developed to provide a programme that reflects the competencies required for professional accreditation with the UKSCA and NSCA.

It is necessary for applicants to understand that the most important quality valued by employers is experience. It is therefore a condition of entry to the course that students arrange experience opportunities in strength and conditioning prior to entry. For those using the course as CPD for another career pathway (e.g. physiotherapists) this condition does not apply.

The Department of Kinesiology has as its mission the preparation of educators, researchers, and citizens who are professionally and academically prepared and are dedicated to addressing the physical activity needs of our society in school, community, work-site, health, medical, or athletic environments. In this regard, the Department of Kinesiology is committed to diverse cultural, educational, scientific, and cross-disciplinary approaches that emphasize the total person. One vital aspect of these efforts is to understand and educate our students and the public in the science and benefits of human movement. We support a broad multi-disciplinary, technologically sophisticated, integrative perspective that identifies exercise, sport, and skill acquisition as critical factors in preparing children and adults to become healthy, knowledgeable, culturally sensitive, and valued members of society.

The Department uses the same multi-disciplinary and integrative approach to address the physical activity issues of an aging, and many times, under-served adult population, emphasizing the role of behaviors in the quality of education, quality of life and prevention of illness. The relationships between physical activity in human beings and various sciences are emphasized. Students will gain an understanding of the development, interpretation, application, and dissemination of knowledge that relates physical activity to human well-being.

The degrees in human performance place an emphasis on the attainment of disciplinary knowledge in the anatomical, biomechanical, developmental, physiological, and sociological aspects of physical activity, explore how physical activity relates to human well-being, and offer a choice of an area of emphasis in physical education and exercise and sport science.
