This is a problem-based learning programme which has been designed to enable students to consider humans as occupational beings and the complex, dynamic relationship between health, well-being, participation and occupation. Students will be encouraged to critically analyse and apply models of occupational therapy practice in order to equip them to advocate for and deliver contemporary occupational therapy, which is occupation-focussed, occupation-based and occupation-centred. There is a specific theoretical focus on occupational science. 

Occupational therapy graduates need to be dynamic, adaptable and respond to the rapidly changing health, education and social care provision in the 21st century. The curriculum for this programme has been designed specifically to enable students to consider the challenges and opportunities such changes can afford the profession. Students are encouraged to critically analyse and apply models of occupational therapy practice in order to advocate for and deliver contemporary occupational therapy, which is occupation-focussed and person-centred.

This programme is accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT). Successful graduates holding our MSc Occupational Therapy (pre-registration) qualification are entitled to apply for registration to practice.
