About the course:
Occupational therapists enable people to take part in meaningful activities by helping them to overcome barriers that prevent them from reaching their potential. These activities vary from paid or unpaid work and self-care activities to sports and leisure. We'll help you develop a deep and critical understanding of the profession.
This course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council, so you will be eligible to apply for registration to practise as an occupational therapist when you graduate. It is also accredited nationally and internationally through the College of Occupational Therapists and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists.
You will develop and demonstrate your pre-registration competencies through the practical and theoretical elements of this course. Towards the end of the course you'll complete an independent scholarship where you'll investigate a potential area of practice you're passionate about and identify real opportunities for future innovative occupational therapy. When you've completed this course you'll be well placed within the employment market as a self-directed, reflective, proactive and initiative driven practitioner, capable of influencing the development of others and the profession.
