We are very fortunate to be able to provide this high quality programme as Brunel University London has one of the largest and most highly qualified occupational therapy staff groups in the world; the expertise is there to teach and supervise at Master’s and Doctoral levels.

It has been acknowledged internationally that we need to show the benefits of our special approach to health and everyday living through research. Master's level study is essential if you want to gain the skills to evaluate your interventions, build professional confidence and seek out (and develop) existing theories, which inform your practice.

Every module assignment can be focussed on a topic you or your manager wants to investigate. The assignments are practically useful; write an evidence based protocol or care pathway for your clients, plan how to improve the effectiveness of your service, evaluate and debate research in order to decide if the evidence is worth incorporating into practice, reflect on how central occupational engagement is for enhancing the health of your clients, or take a topic of interest to you.

The course does not further clinical skills, nor does it lead to registration from the UK professional governing bodies, but rather focuses on developing the occupational therapist’s ability to evaluate and enhance professional practice. Up to 60 credits of academic taught module exemptions can be offered for students holding a PG certificate in Occupational Therapy, relevant PG modules from other Universities, or substantial relevant post professional periods of study e.g. AMPS, Sensory Integration

This course is aimed at occupational therapists wanting to continue their professional development and develop evidence-based practice.

This Brunel Master's is one of the few in the UK specialising in occupational therapy, and it has been especially designed to meet your needs as a practising therapist, helping you to gain greater mastery in your chosen area of occupational therapy.

The programme has been praised by the University validating committees as a model Master's degree for professional practitioners, for it brings theory to the workplace.

Based on a sound approach to adult education, the course invites students to bring issues from practice to analyse in class.

The programme was rated top out of all postgraduate programmes at Brunel University with regard to its capacity to promote personal development.

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.

About the Course

How does brain scanning equipment work?
What can brain scanners tell us about brain function?
How do differences in brain structure affect brain function?

Recent years have been characterised by a rapid development of functional imaging technology, with increasing availability worldwide of high resolution scanners for research and clinical applications. Functional brain imaging requires an understanding of current concepts in cognitive neuroscience and psychology, as well as a basic appreciation of neuroimaging techniques and the mathematical and statistical foundations for data analysis.

This programme, the first of its kind in the UK, provides a strong theoretical and practical introduction to the world of neuroimaging research. The course is a good preparation for a PhD in functional brain imaging, or for working as part of a neuroimaging team with fMRI and/or other imaging modalities.
Aims

The rapid development of functional imaging technology and research has contributed to the call for improved education and training in functional imaging. Within this context, the aim of the programme is to provide a strong theoretical and practical introduction to the world of neuroimaging research. It will equip students with a range of practical research skills to enable them to successfully complete research of this kind, either as part of a research team or as an individual.

The course will also provide the necessary training in safety and in the rules of scanner operation, to allow students to conduct a neuroimaging research project under the supervision of an Authorised User on Brunel’s 3T scanner, or else to conduct a project on one of its related ERP imaging or psychological laboratory facilities.

Whether you want to pursue neuroimaging research, or simply become an expert in this important field of science, the Functional Neuroimaging MSc provides the relevant skills and knowledge.

The course is a good preparation for a PhD in functional brain imaging, or for working as part of a neuroimaging team with fMRI and/or other imaging modalities.

About the Course

The results of unsustainable human development in the 21st century are evident as climate change, species extinction, pollution, poverty and inequality become inescapable global realities. The next big challenge for society is to transform our economy to incorporate the principles of sustainability. This presents an exciting opportunity to rethink, redesign and rebuild a positive future for business practice.

The "MSc in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Design (with Professional Development)" is an 18 month programme – 12 months for the study at Brunel followed by a 6 month professional development phase. There is an option to complete the "MSc in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Design" in 12 months (without the professional development phase) but students will be encouraged to engage with the professional development phase to achieve the maximum from the programme.

Brunel University also offers the Graduate Entrepreneur post-study visa, which represents a perfect opportunity for our international graduates to apply their new skills in the UK following graduation.

The course is jointly run between Institute for the Environment, School of Engineering and Design, and Brunel Business School.
Scholarship scheme is available for this MSc course

The Queen’s Anniversary Prize Scholarships (6 x £3,000 fee waivers)

Aims

This programme will select the world’s brightest, most entrepreneurial minded graduates and equip them with two essential ingredients: firstly, the mindset and ability to play a key role in building a sustainable world – one that is not only prosperous, but also environmentally stable and socially inclusive; and secondly, hands-on experience, such that they can become entrepreneurs, business leaders, change-makers and innovators.

Upon graduating, these individuals will become key figures in local, regional, national or global businesses; holistic thinkers and visionary leaders in their communities, corporations, businesses, non-profit organizations and government agencies. They will infuse environmental awareness into societies and make tangible contributions to the theory and practice of environmental protection, sustainable business and a circular (green) economy.
