The Master of Occupational Therapy is a dynamic and diverse degree, focusing on functional outcomes. Occupational Therapists are practical problem solvers and have a broad perspective of health and well being, underpinned by a solid scientific base.

Occupational Therapists are in high demand in hospitals, mental health, aged care, disability and rehabilitation environments. It is predicted that the demand for OT's will rise significantly with the introduction of the National Disability Scheme in Australia (NDIS).

About the program

Bond University’s Master of Occupational Therapy program is designed to produce highly competitive graduates with comprehensive clinical skills as well as possessing a solid business acumen and research experience. It is the first Occupational Therapy Masters in Australia to offer you the opportunity to complete a clinical research project or undertake business electives in preparation for a career in private practice. You will engage in research training before specialising in one of two elective pathways: Clinically-focused Research Pathway – the clinically focused research pathway culminates in an individual research project that may be eligible for publication. This pathway prepares you for entry into higher research degrees and careers in research and academia, as well as bolstering research networks; or Business-focused Research Pathway – enables you to undertake business electives that will enable you to undertake management roles, and better prepare you to work in the growing private sector. The pathway culminates in an industry research project where you will apply both research and business skills. You will be taught by academics and industry staff who are current practicing clinicians with up to date industry knowledge. 

Professional outcomes

The Bond University Master of Occupational Therapy program has been designed to prepare graduates with the professional qualifications required to practice as an Occupational Therapist in Australia.

The program aims to produce graduates with the comprehensive skills and knowledge to succeed as occupational therapists in both national and international healthcare environments, as well as possess the business acumen to compete in a health care setting of increasing privatisation.

Graduates of the program will be able to apply their experience across a wide range of areas including:

  • Private practice
  • Public and private hospitals
  • Independent living centres and rehabilitation facilities
  • Schools and tertiary education
  • Workplace health
  • Community health centres
  • Mental health services
  • Aged care
  • Research

Graduates may be eligible to progress to further post-graduate research, leading to potential career options in research organisations and academia.

Structure and subjects

Learning and teaching methodology

The Master of Occupational Therapy combines lectures, tutorials, workshops, case studies, fieldwork and simulation to embed the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as an occupational therapist. The program focuses on real-world learning with fieldwork opportunities in most courses to help students link theory to practice. Students will learn from highly qualified occupational therapy academics with clinical and research experience. The choice of a clinically-focussed or business-focussed research pathway allows students to contribute to the advancement of the occupational therapy profession, and broadens future career possibilities in research, academia or private practice.

Occupational therapists work closely with people of all ages to achieve a high quality of life, irrespective of age, disability or illness. Read more
Occupational therapists work closely with people of all ages to achieve a high quality of life, irrespective of age, disability or illness. Helping people to function in daily living activities and promoting well-being at home, in school, at work, and in leisure are of prime concern to the occupational therapist. Occupational therapists take a holistic approach and are involved in client evaluation and intervention as part of a health care team. They also play a role in wider health issues such as community development, health promotion and policy making.

This graduate entry master course offers you a fast-track option to becoming an occupational therapist. You will develop knowledge of four broad areas:

-Medical, psychiatric, orthopaedic and neurological conditions which affect the health and well-being of individuals.
-The theory and practice of occupational therapy including the study of occupation and analysis of the physical, psychological and social requirements of a variety of skills and activities.
-Human development covering normal growth and development within the life cycle along with problems which occur such as learning disabilities and the effects of ageing.
-Occupational health and management, including prevention, education and rehabilitation programs for a variety of workplaces.
-Your studies will be complemented with extensive clinical fieldwork practice. You will also have the unique opportunity to take part in the Occupational Therapy Abroad program, participating in a fieldwork placement in China, India, South Africa or Ukraine for four weeks.

Please note: Participation is obligatory in laboratory classes which may require appropriate disrobing when acting as clients in the peer group, and physically manipulating patients including lifting and supporting people with disabilities.

Professional recognition

Graduates using the title of registered health practitioner or the title of occupational therapist must be registered with Occupational Therapy Board of Australia (the National Board). Registration for practice enables graduates, once registered, to practise occupational therapy in all Australian states and territories. Graduates can also choose to be a member of the Australian Association of Occupational Therapists and/or Occupational Therapy Australia (WA). The course is recognised by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists. Graduates may also apply for registration in most countries although some countries may require sitting a licensing examination.

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. Read more
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.
