This course provides a Master's level route for graduates to become competent occupational therapists equipped for life-long, safe and effective practice within the global marketplace. This course is for those who are not already qualified as occupational therapists. It is a professional full-time programme, which will prepare you to become a competent occupational therapist in a variety of health and social care settings. It also allows students to be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and membership of the British Association of Occupational Therapists/College of Occupational Therapists.
Occupational therapy students typically choose this career for the following reasons: variety of work, the challenge, personal and one-to-one contact, client/patient appreciation, its holistic approach, the desire to help disabled people, to work in health settings, job availability, the chance to be creative.
In December 2016 our programme was granted “Preaccreditation Status” by the American Occupational Therapy Associate (AOTA), which confirms that Brunel has successfully completed steps one and two in the three-step accreditation process – see more at AOTA OT Master's-Level Programs - Developing and visit our Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) information page.
The programme will now proceed with step three – the on-site evaluation, scheduled for April 2017, followed by an accreditation decision by mid-2017.
First or upper second class honours degree from any discipline with strong applicants demonstrating a science profile and evidence of informed insight into the profession of OT.
