The Msc/PgDip Occupational Therapy course is designed to enable you to develop the required competencies, skills and standards of proficiency required to be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council as an occupational therapist.

The accelerated design of the course allows the full-time professional training to be condensed into two years, rather than the traditional three-year route. This experience acts as good preparation for entering the stimulating and evolving world of health and social care as a qualified member of the workforce.

A key feature of this course is the problem-based learning approach which involves you working in a small group with a shared responsibility for meeting the learning outcomes for each module.

Occupational Therapy at LSBU has a dedicated team of tutors who utilise their wealth of knowledge, skills and clinical experiences of working in health and social care to inform the teaching programme. The team has a strong commitment to engaging with clinicians and service users in the teaching programme.

To support the teaching programme, the School of Health and Social Care has a dedicated suite of clinical skills labs, including two well-equipped Activities of Daily Living (ADL) suites plus large rooms for art, splinting and group skills sessions.

After successful completion of either the PgDip or MSc award (including all placements) you'll be eligible to apply for registration as a qualified occupational therapist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

The course will develop your public health mindset and give you the confidence and skills to engage with the new public health agenda. The focus of the course is both academic and applied, and aims to produce graduates who ask questions and know how to set about answering them through critical thinking and reflective practice.

Central to this course is our commitment to the process of enabling people and communities to increase control over their health and well-being. This approach provides graduates with the tools and knowledge to tackle inequalities in health and work towards combating social exclusion. Teaching public health from this perspective means that the curriculum is based on a social model of health. It draws upon the multi-disciplinary, multi-professional context of public health and engages with the interface between theory and practice.

The course provides an opportunity to examine concepts of Public Health and Health Promotion in a social context, plus the social construction of health, social patterning of health and leadership and management approaches to ensuring the effectiveness of interventions. The underlying principles of the course hope to engage students in increasing their enthusiasm and commitment towards Public Health whilst becoming empowered and competent.
